    Give Terry credit today

    Terry did a great job today managing the staff.  He took Miller out before things got out of control in favor of Aceves who has been a great addition.  With Bard and Pap to follow, things worked out as they should. 

    I'm still on Millers side, with Bedard on board the rest of the season we should be fine.  Next season Miller could be right back in the rotation, he has what it takes if he can improve on location.  If Clay can make it back before the PS we have a very deep staff and better bullpen.

    Still a good move, as was removing Lackey the other night with two guys on and Aceves today after his first BB in favor of Bard.  This wasn't happening early on this season or years past.  Terry would tend to let these guys give up 7 runs before removing them.

    Very few ever give Terry credit, instead they tend to say it was the natural thing to do which isn't completely wrong.  Terry needs to do this more often than not.  His management is key to keeping us in every game possible and hope our pen and offense can take over.

    Great start by Miller today. Great relief pitching once again. Timely hitting in the comeback. Great HR by Tek. Good baserunning. One blunder by Scutaro but he made two highlight plays in recent games. Good defensive plays by Gonzalez and Youk.
    OK, I erased "quality" from "quality start" since I was off by an out. Please don't tell Babe that I erred again. I did however enjoy the game and found something positive to talk about. That is a start on a forum that is 90% negative.

    Oh, Heidi was looking fine again today - as usual.

    These are the kind of posts I'm talking about.  Some people just don't like giving Terry partial credit for the right moves.  Just bash him when he makes a bad one.

    Actually, I thought Francona should have removed Miller in the 4th.  Chicago had been hitting well and I thought the game was a hit from getting away from the Red Sox.  I realized this would have stretched the pen a bit, but the outcome was clearly in the balance.  Fortunately, Miller was able to strike out Quentin and Adam Dunn popped out.

    Oh, I forgot to give Terry credit also for handling the pitching staff. I didn't realize that complimenting the pitchers and also Terry were mutually exclusive. What are you smoking, it must be good stuff?

    How can this thread be ruined? Francona managed well today. That's what he's paid to do.
     Think about this, why should his fans have to bring attention to the fact that he managed well today? He's supposedly one of the best managers in baseball.
    Why should anyone be surprised that he actually pulled Miller and Acves before the game was lost. The reason why is simple, it's not what he usually does, he surprises even his minions when he does what he's paid to do......
    They're surprised that he managed well, yet they call him the best manager the Sox have ever had. Actually, he's been the manager of the the Sox during their best stretch over 8 years, ever. Even he says he's a very lucky man.
    Do you truly believe he's done a better job with the team, over the past 7 plus years, than any one of 25 to 30 other managers could have done?                       I don't.

    Not quite a quality start. He only went 5 2/3 innings.

    Figures one person has to be negative !! Why can't you just accept the fact that Francona is a very good manager ? Just because he gets paid to be a good manager is strange logic. Every manager in MLB gets paid very well, yet many get fired every year because they can't get the job done, whereas Tito has the Sox always in the pennant race.

     I've been following the Sox since before williams was manager, that's Dick not Jimy, and Francona is hands down the best these eyes have seen in a Sox uniform, and second best isn't even close. Having said that I still reserve the right to nit pick, and second guess each and every move he makes.

    The fact is that he is not now, never was and never will be a good manager. He's very lucky that the Sox front office has provided him with enough talent for the team to win, even with him as the manager.

    It was a great all-around game for the Red Sox today.  I wouldn't say Miller's start was great, but outside of the 4th inning, I thought he pitched very well.  The 8 K's and only 1 BB was very good to see.  I thought his curve looked very good for the most part, and his FB velocity was higher than it usually is.

    At any rate, he did what he had to do to keep his team in the game.  Good for him!

    And kudos to the captain for his HR!

    Perhaps the best part about the win was not having to listen to Hawk celebrate.
