I think they were having a problem with the clock a while back. Dunno why though.

I hate it when we make these average pitchers look like Cy Clemens out on the mound. It's pretty ridiculous.

And I am glad to see Clement is still with us. I got scared somebody was using his body as an alien host in his last start vs. the Orioles.

This is ridiculous. We just can't figure this guy out.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Our offense has been struggling to score any runs at all lately. Manny and Ortiz need to get going soon, more of Manny then Ortiz though. 9 K's by Lilly as Manny K's.....

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Well, at least they didn't go quietly. Manny is killing them by being an almost automatic out in the middle of the order. He just looks horrible at the plate so far. At this point, Wily Mo is having better at-bats.

Foulke looked good, and Tavarez wasn't bad even though he did give up one run. Hopefully they get it going against Seatle.

Yah Lilly was making him, among others look silly. I havn't seen the Red Sox strike out looking that many times in awhile.

At least vs Seattle, with Schill, Wake and Beckett going, they hopefully won't give a 5 run cushion right off the bat. I'm going Saturday and Sunday.

I may hate the Red Sox (not as much as the Yankees) but I really hope Manny gets it going. It's always sad to see a star player struggling so much. On the Jays feed Pat Tabler noticed that Manny's timing is WAY off. He's doing his leg kick after the pitch is thrown when he usually does so just as the pitcher is releasing the ball.

It's really messing him up big time.

Manny will break out of it. He always has these stretches where he's a little bit off, but then something will click and he'll go on a tear for 3 months. He started slow last year as well. Didn't hit his 1st HR until April 16th, and was hitting .222 with 4 RBI at the time. He broke out of it though and ended the month at .274 with 7 HR's and 25 RBI.
