I'm confident he'll breakout of his slump, but the thought just crossed my mind as I read your comment about his AB's, which you are dead on, I wonder if he's just tanking it because of not being traded?

Probably not, just throwing something out there.

I think Manny has way too much pride in what he does to do something like that. Also, I think if he was tanking, his teammates and coaches would notice it pretty quickly. Not something guys like Schilling, Beckett, Nixon, etc would put up with. That and we've seen him go through stretches like this before. Pretty much the first half of April and entire month of May last year.

That's his 3rd save in 2-1 wins. I think its safe to say we would have been 1-2, if not 0-3 in those games with last years pen. That splitter he threw to Ichiro was a pitch he just didn't have last year. Same thing with Schilling. Great stuff from our pitching staff tonight.

He's the closer for the foreseeable future.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Wells is expected to miss his next start and possibly return to the DL. Dinardo will take his spot in the rotation.

Via Rotoworld.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Wells to the DL and Van Buren is up in the bigs.

I was going to make a post about JVB. Seeing as though Riske is on the DL, and Dinardo was really only our mop up guy, I was wondering when we'd have our first Buren sighting. I was happy when we got him from the Cubs. Hopefully he can help out our BP with Riske on the DL, and Dinardo now starting.
