Thought I'd start this to discuss some of the daily games:
Anyone watch the TB game? I love watching these 2 teams play, always controversey playing at the dome and lots of

I feel bad for Rob Bell (TB pitcher). I played against him during my Summer Legion days in NY and he used to kill us day in day out. Now in the major's all he does is get titted.

Re: Red Sox Only Thread -- (-YZ-)

Manny's HR after getting thrown at was one of the best things ive seen in a baseball game.
Too bad the dumb catwalk got in the way of Ortiz's bomb, I would have liked to get a good measurement on that one.

Re: Red Sox Only Thread -- (Hammertime)

I found it funny seeing the one Red Sox player spoon feeding some pudding to David Ortiz in the dugout. If ya don't know what Im talking about, they showed it on Sporscenter.

idiots....

good rebound game. hopefully we have enough offense left for the O's who are really improved from last year. and they owned us last year...8-3 or 8-4 on the season....something ridiculous like that.
then...im all set fot them to come to Arlington...got tickets for all 3 games

hopefully Schill's a little more on point..

I'm sure I'd still be pissed if I had a fastball thrown at my head. And I thought Ortiz is the last person you'd want to throw at. Would you want that guy pissed at you?

Re: Red Sox Only Thread -- (g60rabbit)

Can we discuss pitching???
Its going to get very interesting when we get Miller back in to rotation. You think Arroyo is going to the pen??? sadly yes. He looks great this year, more on point then Clement and Wells (pre 18 shutout inn).
Is anyone concerned about Schilling? I am. Suddenly its 5innings, 80 pitches and then you have to worry.
Wakefield has been his steady self every game. 7innings, 3-4 ER, 1-2 BB. Plus gets decent run support. And I like have D-U-G in game!
The pen is again is ????. Folke is getting to mad on himself, Mantei throws 96mph junk everywhere but in the strike zone, HHHHHHalammmmaaaa is ehhhhh, Neal is one big scary dude, and Myers has been great soo far.
Soo maybe Arroyo in the pen could be a good thing for LONG relief.

I'm not worried about Schilling at all. He is getting up there in age. He's getting over an injury and he doesn't have his conditioning yet. He'll look great one inning and then below average the next. Give him 3 or 4 more starts and I expect we'll see the Schilling of old.

Yeah I think a lot of people thought the pen was going to be a strength for the Sox, but so far its been so-so. I guess you can't expect them to shut down teams night in/night out.
I'm not too worried though. If they make the post season, the pen should be fine from judging from the last 2 years. They all have post season experience.
They have been lights out with their back against the wall in '04.
Baltimore is going to be very tough me thinks.
They want some payback from being shut out in the last 18 innings against the Sox.

Any talk of suspensions yet?

Not that I've heard. I could see Arroyo getting 5 games for intentionally hitting Singleton. Brazelton should get some for raking Trot Nixon's face. Other than that I don't see too many suspensions. It was pretty minor.

Not saying he was in the right, but did he actually hit anyone?
I think he will get something.

he threw behind Manny, and at Ortiz's head...if that doesnt get him 5 games, the neither should Bronson...he plunked a guy in the leg/thigh w/ an offspeed pitch...
