Bio not provided
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.

6ks, 1 BB and no HRs is not being bitch-slapped. Maybe if there wern't ancient statues on the left side of the infield.

I believe it was the third save attempt. Two yesterday. 1 today.

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.

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.

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.
