    Now I know the real reason they got rid of Reddick (I'm watching this game on the Oakland station, and they're showing all his childish rants)

     

     



    Ha... and whats up with that lame beard?? it looks ridiculous on him....

    I know people on the board were glad we got Thornton but if you read a lot of fan comments from Chicago they mostly said good riddance...and now we know why....he stinks

    Rag arm just got a loss. You mean to say we don't have one lefty in the minors that can throw in the 90's.

    Hard to say with only one appearance, Venice. Dissapointing, but let's give the kid a chance. He's a lefty specialist. Wasn't the best spot for him.

    103 pitches?  Before the break?  He should have been taken out when the no-no was broken.  'nuff said




    Yes. And Thornton should not have been brought in to face ONLY RHH. And the OF was playing way too deep in the 11th. Any base hit scores the winning run. This loss is on Farrell.

    Farrell put him in a spot to lose the game. His numbers vs RHH stink, and he face only guys hitting from the right side. There were other options. Farrell blew this one folks.

    Maybe so JBay but if you look at the guys stats, he is horrible against righties.... also he has 12 walks in 28 innings and guess what loss this game for him? Walks!!  I know the Sox pretty much gave up nothing but when you give up nothing you almost always get nothing in return.... lets hope he can turn it around because his last several outings have been horrible

    I think it is fair to say that Farrell blew this game. A manager makes the moves. How the players perform determines if those moves were correct. So , it is true that Farrell's moves lost this game. It is also true that Farrell has been right far more than he has been wrong. It is fair to say that Farrell has done an excellent job and should not be killed for every mistake.

    i agree with you and dont think it was Farrell who overall has been great.  I have to say that I was thinking Bailey... crazy i know but i thought about it...

    • Colon did not walk a batter for the 10th time in 19 starts.  Not bad for a fatty who is 40 years old.   LOL
    • The Red Sox have not won a series in Oakland since July of 2006.  Yell

    Farrell couldn't have put in Bailey. Pumpsie was at the game, and if he blew it, there wasn't enough security. Tongue Out

    I think Bailey had to be held back to save the game in case we got ahead. I believe Beato was available, as was, I believe, Britton. In addition, because we have three days off before we play again, nearly everyone could have come in for an inning or two except Lester who pitched yesterday. Taz could also have come in. Instead, Farrell put Thornton in the game in a position he could not handle: facing RHH. He should not face any of them. In addition, being at the game I noticed how deep the OF were all playing with Donaldson up in the 11th. With the winning run at second the OF need to be positioned so that if there is a single in front of them they had a decent shot at throwing the runner out at the plate. Farrell has done a decent job this year, but he blew this one.

    Something that in general a manager knows but for a variety of reasons is often NOT publicized  before the fact, and to a lesser extent after, is who's available in a game to relieve; it's usually alot more than is realized who isn't; Farrell, who is a MGR of the YR candidate does not seem like the kind of guy to mess up a reliever sequence; they seemed to have used alot of them in Seattle; having said that, no one is perfect.
