    Boy that half-inning stunk - what he half to throw 8 pitches?  Start off 0-2 (Reddick and CC) and then 0-1, not going to get much to hit.  Of course, Bedard gives up another leadoff hit.  Oh well, still early, but we may have to live with a split and hope for tomorrow.  Hope KC decides to give the Yanks a game.  GO SOX!

    They have won some and lost some.  Much better record when they score first.

    denny, that's why he is *I Tito!*...He never goes for the jugular on a team, if anything he backs off when the Sox are rolling. If Ortiz is sick/hurt whatever, I still would like to know how sick/how hurt. He's a DH, and he needs to be hitting not sitting.

    Also, how hard is it to let Saltalamacchia DH and sit Crawford, a guy who simply needs to sit.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Game thread 8/17/11--Game two--Rays vs Sox : I don't agree with Tito's philosophy here, but he rarely wavers on his ability to send out dreadful batting lineups, then explain them with such defenses as 1. need to rest them before they get tired. 2. we have too many guys battered and hurt. 3. we won the first game, so the next game is just gravy

    quick turn around danny, early game tomorrow.

    How about DHing Salty and not playing McDonald.

    Salty is a guy who can hit a little, and Crawford is not. This is a perfect game to let him DH. You know what, I'm sure there are about 10 forum experts who will now cite me the company line--The Sox brass know best, the Sox medical staff is protecting the talent, the Sox manager is following the game plan, the Sox GM is approving the game plan before it's enacted. Enough. This is a B-minus lineup and designed to throw Bedard under a bus before the game started.

    McDonald homered a few days ago in a sub job. Crawford strings together hits now in bunches. He gets 4 one game, then about 2 weeks later he gets his next hit.

    I can see how Bedard could be a real tough guy to deal with when he's healthy. He can be as good as Lester. This may turn out to be a good deal for us. Meanwhile.....

    RUNS PLEASE.

    Bedard looks like a good addition. Hope he stays healthy. The runs tonight are not his fault. As an added issue, Lowrie's error also helped to inflate the pitch count.

    Okay, he got around a lead-off hit, now we have to make Tampa Bay pay.  Let's at least work the count or better yet score 5.  GO SOX!

    Great. HR by Tek, and he retires the next two batters on 4 pitches.

    Your right, McDonald is a better option than Crawford....clearly the rest of Crawfords career will not meet up with McDonald.  I canno't wait till next year, I hope his second year is very similiar to Josh Becketts second year.  (for a offensive player)

    So Ellsbury goes yard in game one, Tek in game two.  Softy must be fuming.  LET WAKE HIT!

    Tek homers, but apparently he's breaking down....another fallacy.
