Pitchers used to go from pen to starting games back to the pen all. the. time.
This Joba/Hughes stuff is the epitome of small sample size.
That said, not letting Bard pitch the ninth is beyond stupid.

The problem with keeping Tim Wakefield for depth, is that when you need him...it's Tim Wakefield pitching. Along with John Lackey, when you count the numerous unearned runs..they were literally the worst pitchers in the AL last year.

With all due respect...I thought the point of going to a baseball game was to have fun. So if people are singing 'Sweet Caroline' even though their team is losing...arn't they having fun? No one makes you pay attention to them. No one makes me take my hat off during GBA.
From the 'i'm secretly a hypocrite dept.': I do hate when jackasses wave at the camera and grin and yuk it up when they catch an opposing team's HR ball.

Good ol Boston...Rivera will go out on a white horse being paid what he deserves. Papi, who should be a greater hero to Boston, will be lowballed and should that happen, I hope he shows up in pinstripes next year and says "You entitled, spoiled MFers didn't want me....oh and Jaba, he say fuck you."
Yeah, I said it.

2 years, 9 months ago on What Happened in the Red Sox Clubhouse?
@VJ in Stuttgart No a thousand times to Wake. Count his billion unearned runs and he's right up there with Lackey as the worst pitcher in the league. Keeping him around means he has to be used when a pitcher goes down and I'd rather that pitcher at least actually be replacement level.

@English Sox Fan I haven't changed teams, I just dumped them. I don't know if you follow other American sports, but i also dumped the Canucks and the Raiders a while back for various reasons. Now I don't really follow hockey or gridiron.
@English Sox Fan I despise almost all the Boston Media except Amalie, but with the exception of Shank, they've been pretty dead-on.
"Rangers and Rays gonna dogfight for 7 games"
That would be some trick
What's lost in all this stink is we may have seen the last AB of Big Papi. Big Papi! There should be a giant gold statue of him in CF, but instead all I hear is..."enh, maybe we can lowball him, and if not...enh.."Geek reference: The Red Sox are like the Genesis Project in Star Trek, constructed with explosive short-cut materials, and now the whole thing has blown up. Well, the Bad Olde Days should be entertaining at least.
@English Sox Fan nope.
@English Sox Fan@red sox chic
I don't know if that's accurate. The team has definitly entered "Dumpable Zone". *I* wouldn't and never would unless they Built a new park, traded Pedey and changed team colors...but they are very fan-suspendable, and can see how some would dump them.I dumped Newcastle for their treatment of Sir Bobby, the entitled fanbase, and the constant buying of ex-Leeds thugs....and laughed and laughed at their misfortunes.

@Sox in the Desert Tito certainly has failings, but frankly this team doesn't deserve him.
I'm sure it was a matter of not being able to raze the roster enough to make a difference to Tito.

@English Sox Fan There are certain Sox games I'd bet against, and be thrilled to lose money. ..I guess that isn't a very productive strategy.
@English Sox Fan Against Wake...against. And betting against the O's at this point in the season is folly, when Buck is salivating and has been fisting the Rays and now the Angels. Not saying Sox won't win, but those arn't betting games. The lines in Vegas games have been crazy lately and Ill bet a lot of rose-tinted Sox fans have lost their houses.
@JohnWhitaker win not when, sorry its early
@JohnWhitaker Not really. When Sox when more than 1 in 3 games...something they haven't done in 3 weeks, may be can set our sights a little higher
@English Sox Fan Don't do it. Make all your money Sunday.
@BB.13 *I* was never never ready to anoint Bard. I DID pile on Paps for being genuinely bad last year, but people have been riding his jock since 2008. And I've been defending him.
I did get pretty mad over his pitch selection at the end of 2009.

I've had back spasms. It took about 90 seconds to walk across a street. And Drew's finger is broken with the ligament torn off the bone. Youk is looking like Mike Lowell, so it's probably better to sit him and let Lowrie play.
But there's no reason to rip you. I rip Tito for getting Papelbon into 7 innings in the last 25 games. I blame Tito and Theo for a billion things that are all starting to add up.
I'm watchin the Rays smack around the O's, hopefully later I'll watch King Felix drop the hammer on the Yanks.

Apparently all Ellsbury needed to *really* take off was that apology.
Frankly I'm going to be sad if Bautista doesn't win MVP. The Ells-Pedroia-AGon 'groupthink' saddens me cause they're really not even close to Joey Bats. His slugging and his OBP are both about 40 points higher than the closest player. And if you use the it's not "Best player" it's MVP...then the fact that we're even talking about three Red Sox MVP's belies that.
No offense, really.

Like you said....Salty should have been dead with that chugging stride of his, but being marginally faster than Varitek made the difference. Amazing, one of Tito's weird pinch runs came through.
Apology accepted, Captain Red.

@VJ in Stuttgart Oh, i totally agree on JD this year. He's done. Toast. Old....etc...I'm jus sayin Crawford is more fragile than people think, and I actually am a hammy expert. Theres no way a grade 1 strain (the least possible) lays someone out for 4-5 weeks. I don't hate Crawford. Im jus sayin its ominous that as fast a guy as Crawford is put out so long by the least possible strain,
Just a little something on whipping boy Drew..he was on the DL only once, and it took until his third or second year to do so. And that was for part of his spine coming out. Crawford (who will never smell JDs jock stat-wise) is knocked out for 3 (?) weeks now for a grade one hamstring pull and is only at 50% now. This from a guy whose speed is supposed to be his forte
Supposedly Drew and Reddick are horrible against lefties. ...I don't see how they could be worse than McDonald and Cameron though.
