Beckett was great...Papelbon was great...Timlin was lucky...I think the only reason Texiera was called out on that play was because the ball beat him there by a lot. I actually think that the tag was high...
Francona's explanation about using Papelbon was weak, but I don't care...as long as the Sox won.
Papelbon might be awesome as a closer, but this team needs Foulke. Papelbon will need to start here and there this year.
Nice to see how good the Yankees defense is...Cano with 2 errors. Wright explodes. The Yankees lose....THeeee heeee Yankees lose.
Manny is off to a similar start compared to last year. I think...I can't remember because his numbers were pretty damned impressive by season's end.
How great is Loretta? Totally professional hitter and solid glove man.
Here's a little prediction...The Sox will make a move at some point this season for a first baseman with a bat. Youk and Snow aren't going to cut it over there.
Some early (VERY early surprises)...Seattle takes 2 of 3 from LAA. Twins pound on Toronto's bullpen yesterday. The O's offense looks good. Of course they've faced the Rays, but I thought the Rays would have more oomph early this year...The Braves miss Leo Mazzone so far...They've had to outslug the Dodgers to win those games.
