Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Seeing Wells struggle like this isn't much of a surprise. He looked pretty bad in his minor league starts.

It's now making sense the reason why Riske was put on the dl (if he isn't truly hurt) instead of sending Dinardo down... Lenny might be needed in this game if Boomer keeps this up.

I'd imagine Beckett is their next priority. He's controlled through 2007, so if possible it would be good to extend him this year and not even let him come close to free agency. He seems like the type of guy who prefers an environment like Boston, so I can definitely see it happening.

I think they only had him under their control for next season and the year after.

I bet they want to make sure Beckett's shoulder is fine before locking him up long term.

Boomer doesn't look too good, that's what I expected though. I wouldn't worry about Wells though, not unless he strings together 3 or 4 outings like this.

Wily Mo had a nice at-bat there.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

About what I expected from Wells. Would be nice to get another couple innings out of him.

Wily Mo did look pretty good on that at bat. I was expecting the K after he hit that laser beam foul, but he did a good job making contact and going to the opposite field.

Papi needs to watch out for that quicksand between 1st and 2nd.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

It's really great to see the much improved defense in the infield. A-Gon has been way more than I expected, or maybe Edgar tainted me... Either way he's great to watch at his position.

Loretta is also very solid. Has anyone else noticed some of the picks Youk has made at first? He seems to be adjusting to 1B just fine.
