    After the Game Moves

    1. Youkilis on DL.
    2. Doubront Sent Down, if he has options.

    Up:
    1. Tazawa (if he can be brought back up due to DL) or another pitcher brought up.
    2. Mortensen brought up.

    Once Middlebrooks' thumb is better, he swaps with Inglesias

    Why would we send Doubront down?

    Why would we bring Mortensen up?

    I don't see Doubront going down after one bad outing.

    Re: After the Game Moves

    Doubront is not what is wrong with this team. The trouble
    is that they are just plain CHEAP !!! If you are going to
    field a squad including Byrd, Saltalamacchia, Punto,
    Shoppach, Repko..who are basically the dregs of the
    majors....then you will lose. Punto, Shoppach, and
    Salty just can't hit...period !!! Saltalamacchia is nothing
    more than a AAA level catcher. The guy just cannot
    hit. Forget the occasional single or lucky homer. What
    you saw in April is what you get ! With Youkilis hobbled,
    and Ellsbury and Crawford out for an extended period,
    the club will founder and settle in the cellar, no matter
    how good the pitching is. Adrian Gonzales absolutely
    stinks as a "big" bat. He scares no one. Even Ross is
    more dependable. Papi is our one big bat. That's it
    in a nutshell. With the exception of Pedroia and Papi
    and maybe Ross and Aviles to a lesser degree, it's
    a minor league squad. You will not win or stay out
    of the cellar with this squad.

    Joebreidey - Want to doubt me on this? I got Mortenson right, I got Middlebrooks right and Cook is the third.
    Why would they bring Mortensen up? They need a relief pitcher.

    Doubront is out of options.  He may go to the bullpen.  Or maybe Bucholz to the 'pen.

    ADG wants to cut everyone after a bad game. Look at this thread "DFA". He has very little patience. He also doesn't know that Doubrant doesn't have any option and that there is a waiting time to be recalled after being optioned.

      Doubront is not going anywhere.......  (maybe the pen, down the road)  Cook pitches saturday for the 126, 6.2 inning FAT-CAT who needs another day......  Interesting for sure !!!

    Doubront is staying in the rotation, and Cook is taking Beckett's spot.

    I think for Doubronts 1st year as a starter, hes doing great..Just needs to be a little more efficient..I dont see him being put on waivers (out of options) or in the pen..

    Re: After the Game Moves

    Given the fact that starters only pitch every 5th game, why not DL Beckett come Saturday retroactive to his last start. He really would only miss two starts and it would give the Red Sox a better look at Cook, Buchholz and Doubront.

    One reason is because it is not a smart idea.

    Beckett is the Soxbest pitcher right now, like it or not.  Since his first outing, he has turned in 4 straight quality starts with an ERA of 2.93 and a BAA of .221.

    If you think Cook is going to do that, you might want to check your calendar.  Cook hasn't had 4 straight QS since July, 2009.

    For all the whining about this team, if Beckett is injured that is a majopr concern.   Were he to be disabled, over 50% of the payroll would be on the DL.

    Re: After the Game Moves

    TONITE'S GAME WAS A REAL STINKEROO. THE RED SOX MAJOR
    LEAGUE TEAM PLAYS LIKE THE LOWELL SPINNERS. IT LOOKS
    LIKE THEY ARE GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS. THERE IS NO
    SPARK, WHATSOEVER. VALENTINE JUST PACES BACK AND FORTH
    IN THE DUGOUT, EYES GLAZED OVER, STROKING HIS CHIN.
    WE JUST CAN'T HIT !! IMAGINE THAT...THE OAKLAND A'S
    COMING IN AND HUMILIATING US COMPLETELY. AGON IS
    PLAIN AWFUL. THE REST OF THE STIFFS DO AS EXPECTED.
    AS I SAID BEFORE IN MY POSTS, SALTALAMACCHIA IS NOT
    A MAJOR LEAGUE CATCHER....NEVER WAS !!! THE REST OF THE
    GUYS ARE JUST CASTOFFS....AND THAT INCLUDES ROSS, AVILES,
    SHOPPACH, PUNTO, BYRD, MCDONALD...ONLY THREE GUYS IN
    THE LINEUP ARE BONAFIDE BIG LEAGUERS....PAPI, PEDEY AND
    AGON...AND IF THEY DON'T HIT, THE TEAM GOES IN THE TOILET.'
    WE HAVE LAST PLACE LOCKED UP IN MAY, AND WE WILL BE
    THERE COMFORTABLY IN SEPTEMBER WITH THIS BUNCH OF
    OVERPAID BUMS AND SCRUBS.
