Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

That ball probably would have gone over the wall without Pena's influence, but it should have been caught easily. He just drifted back like he had no idea where the wall was and then jumped to catch it when he didn't need to. Ugly play.

Foulke's velocity was down today, I didn't see anything over 85. The few changeups he threw looked good and were 76 so there was still a good differential in speed between the two. I think Foulke (and Schilling, for that matter) will likely struggle a bit wirh inconsistent velocity from game to game. He threw one slider that was ugly. I've never seen Foulke throw a quality slider, he should just dump the pitch.

Keith Foulke... One game he can hit 88-89 then this game he was throwing 84-86 mhp. This guy cannot be our closer... Even if he has a nasty changeup, he has to have his fastball max day in day out. Blame all you want on Willy, no way Foulke should be throwing that slow.

No closer has their best stuff every game. Papelbon was struggling to break 92 in his last appearance after hitting 97 in the previous game. The best closers are the ones who still get it done when they aren't on their game. Foulke's velocity was down, but he should have gotten out of that inning without allowing a run.

Lowell with another double! Welcome to Fenway, Mike Lowell.

Lowell seems to be enjoying Fenway
