Really, and I know some people frown upon this, but they could have had Clement warm up and then sub Timlin in.

I don't understand why you don't atleast get Foulke up after the double for insurance.

I'm not sure why they didnt have somebody up when they tied the game. No excuse for not having a reliever ready in that situation.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Part of what I don't like too much about Francona: he doesn't get relief pitchers up until too late. It seems like this happens a lot.

He could have had Foulke or Timlin warming up during the last inning in case the Sox grabbed the lead, then subbed them in. Then if it was tied or the Sox were still down he could have decided to stick with Clement. I just think you should always leave an option in there.

That's the 2nd time I've seen them try that this year. Think it was Gonzalez the first time. Didn't Lowell pull it off last year?

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Damn, that little drag bunt almost caught him out of the box. I was hoping for the call but the ump got it right.

Yep, late last year.

And a couple years before that. He seems to have a knack for it I guess.
