For the prosecution, exhibits 154, 155 and 156...

So we score two runs....

we re-load the bases...

and deciding not to let our starting catcher and his .143 batting average come to the plate, we send up the captain...

who after a night on the bench, decides that the first pitch he sees, will be the best pitch he sees...

===========

But according to Joe, there was good reason to swing at that first pitch, because there was no reason to look for a walk...

so keeping the inning going, regardless of how, is less valuable than making a first pitch out according to our man in the ESPN booth... seriously?

============

I alluded to this a couple of games ago, but seriously, how long do you let someone bat .143 on a major league team?

but Neil, you fool, he is there to catch Wakefield, to stop the passed balls and wild pitches that Josh Bard couldn't...

except - he isn't doing that either, so how long do you stick with it?

=============

Our latest acquisition has just entered the game - a LOOGY to take over from Myers - Francona decided this was needed after Foulke went on the DL...

And following up the 4 pitch walk, the newby gives up another hit to allow the Twins to get an insurance run...

Somewhere in the mists of time, I wrote a post under the heading... never blog angry... lather, rinse, repeat...

2 threw a strike:

Why did the Red Sox let Mike Myers go? Refresh my memory.

The only semi-plausible excuse I have heard is that he wanted a multi-year contract, and we weren't willing to give him one...

I also seem to remember our front-office talking about the inefficiency of bringing in a reliever for just one batter - whjich is presumably why they let Lopez allow more than one base-runner...
