Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

They need Crisp back, but they also need Manny back. He's killing them. I don't know why anyone pitches to Ortiz right now with how bad Manny is swinging. At least he hit a ball hard for a base hit today.

Mohr's a hacker who can't be expected to play everday. Pena's defense has been atrocious, but he has had good at-bats this whole homestand. This playing time is good for him though, because the only way he gets better in the field is to play. I heard from my uncle that Nixon is supposed to start tomorrow, hopefully he has an impact.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I haven't seen anything mentioned about this on here but it's a little old. Here's a few interesting notes about our old friend Derek Lowe via Deadspin.

The Red Sox felt Lowe “had a drinking issue,” and Lowe’s agent, Scott Boras, even suggested an intervention. When Scott Boras is a positive influence in your life, there are problems.
Lowe spent much of last year drinking in the Dodgers clubhouse.
Lowe has “undiagnosed ADD,” which allowed the Red Sox doctors to give him Ritalin every day.

These are from transcripts of divorce proceedings.

I heard about him hanging around the bars at Fenway Park but didn't think it was so bad that the Sox thought he had a drinking problem.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

My sister was at the bar with Josh Beckett the other night(in the same bar...didn't go with him) and I guess he's nice, but got fed up with all the fanatic Sox "fans" comnig up to him and asking for something, so one time a guy came up to him and asked if he was Josh Beckett...he goes "No, I get that all the time though, figure I should take it as a compliment, Thanks."

I'm sure most athletes do that, but I just find it funny.(Also funny that my other sister sent her a text message telling the sister at the bar to: "Get him drunk and take him home.")

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Wow the Sox just missed out on a big inning there. Manny was about a foot from a HR, Trot's double bounced into the stands so Manny didn't score, they walk Tek to load em up and Lowell grounds into a DP. Ugh

Jesus, he came pretty close. Ichiro did a good job of getting back to make a play on it.
