    Jon Lester looks to be 1st Red Sox LHP to go 5-0 in April since Babe Ruth in 1917

    Boston has 40 more runs scored than allowed. That's currently the best run differential in MLB

    Hanrahan praised the way Bailey handled his role change in December, said he plans to handle his role change the same way.

    The Yankees now have their 1B, SS, 3B (two of them, actually), CF, C and No. 5 starter on the DL.

    They place Youkilis on 15-day DL with lumbar spine sprain

    Re: Game Thread 26: Red Sox at Blue Jays

    2004Idliot keeps priming the pump, but we have all fallen silent.  Thanks, anyway.

    I was pretty sure Bailey would stay as the closer because so far this season he has a much better track record. 

    I suspected Youk was going on the DL and continue to be amazed, not just at all those front line injuries, but at how the Yankees somehow manage to stay above .500.  This just might be Girardi and Cash's finest hour. 

    These Sox are different--build on starting pitching, pretty good defense, and just enough hitting (actually, a little more than that).   As long as Lester, Buchholz, Dempster, Doubront, and Lackey can keep putting up those good numbers (not great, but good), the Sox will stay competitive. 

    softlaw would have gladly traded anybody and everybody on the Sox to get Upton, but right now, as good as Upton has been for Atlanta, that does not seem to have been the best solution.  Who knew Dempster and Napoli (at 1B no less) and Victorino would be good acquisitions?  Certainly not me. 

    Speaking of Victorino, how's his back?  He should have been in tonight's lineup. 

    Less than a month ago, almost the entire RSN believed Iglesias and Bradley were the keys to this season, and those new guys borderline worthless.  Funny thing is, I still like both of those guys, but see the value of going with more experience, at least for now. 

    If Vic goes on the DL, does Bradley reappear in Boston?  I don't think so, but would not mind an argument in favor.

    Good news.

    Look at their career stats. They arent' even close.

    Bailey is better.

    Farrell will use Hanrahan in low-leverage spots first: "Some appearances are needed to get under his belt to get into the flow of things."

    I am not sure that Hanrahan is even a better set-up man than Tazawa or Uehara.

    I don't think so either.  Not to say it was a mistake to get him, they gave up nothing, but the guy was pitching in the NL and he didnt' even dominate over there.

    Did I say that idiot?? I said it looks like he is reverting back to last years ways when he starts walking hitters... last game 5 walks.....this game two walks and a hit batter in  3 innings... it was an observation and if you dont like that then dont read it...
