Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I think with the amount of innings our starters have spared the bullpen this year, the 'pen can suck up it for the next two weeks without Van Buren and we call up a fourth outfielder in Harris instead.

Nixon should be back in a couple days, and I don't think Coco will be out much more than a week, week and a half. I think bringing Van Buren up is the right move.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

The lineup they trotted out there today might be the worst I've seen in Boston in 5 years.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Yea, 5 years is probably when I started watching the Sox, and garbage time aside, that was the worst lineup i've seen. Please don't rest all your bats on the same day Terry. Cora, Gonzalez, Stern, and Bard in the same lineup? And the sad thing is Manny is hitting on par with most of them .

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Stern got exposed today, so hopefully his bandwagon dies down a bit. It was only a matter of time before the team started to miss Crisp and Nixon. We can complain about Terry resting too many guys today, but really who else was there? Loretta hasn't been hitting, Mohr isn't any better than Stern against righties, and Lowell isn't a sure thing, though he has been hot. With guys down, the Sox need their big guys to step up. Ortiz has, more or less, answered the call but Manny is just plain terrible at the moment. The team needs him to get going but he hasn't shown any progress. At least Wily Mo has been having consistent at-bats, though his defense isn't improving.

Except we fail to score enough runs when our starters don't provide ace caliber outings. Love Gonzalez defense, but my god, he is absolutely horrid with the stick. They really, REALLY need Crisp back. I can't stand Mohr or Stern.
