    You are correct but I was just giving you advice. Ignore Bill-806, Camelwalk, ThatWasMe, TBINFL, JesseyEric. PinstripeZac, Hank, Examiner, and J-Bay. If you do so then you will no longer dance like a puppet at their whim.

    I like him...he is not being asked to fill in as a #1,2 or 3 and maybe given some seasoning starts...he will prove to be a pleasant surprise.  That said...he can't pitch 5 innings and give up 4 runs every game...those are not quality starts and would equal a horrendous ERA.

    OK children, lets get back to baseball.....  The Rays got to Doubront in the top of the 6th......  I think Felix will get better every time out !!!  What say you, all you "Fair & Balanced ones" ????

    Not the next Johan Santana, But so far I see a little "Pedro " in him, and it will develop in time (HOPEFULLY). Not afraid to throw off-speed and works the corners, so far so good.

    House, someone could have 11,000 posts on the ,music board and 1 on the Sox board. The folks with over 10,000 post's need to get over their selves! And one does wonder how someone can post over 10,000 times and have a life!

    The game against the Jays I wasn't convinced. I didn't think he had enough pitches and his pitch count was up early .  He was the main reason they won that game, kept the Sox in it .
    After today, I'm eating crow.

    I guess it's Ok for a young guy fighting for a major league job to show up to camp out of shape (Doubront in 2011), and you love him, but when Beckett does it, he's a bum who should be traded (until you are again "proud of him" for a day, after his last start). That being said, Doubront does have the "stuff" needed to be a very good starter. I see him having a nice season if he can stay healthy and in shape.

    That's what I posted last year. He was slated to be the No. 6 pitcher ahead of Wakefield, but he came into camp out of shape and really hurt the team's depth. He deserved to be blasted and ridiculed last year for it.

    However, he also deserved another chance to learn from his mistake, and he appears to be doing so. He came into camp in shape, earned a spot in the rotation by having a great spring (despite Andrew's ramblings) and so far in his first two starts shows he belongs.

    I agree. He deserves another chance, as does Beckett. 

    BILL-806 may not agree, depending on how well Beckett did in his last start.

    Forget the numbers. We shouldn't chase away new posters just because they are new or make a point we disagree with.

    Nah, the numbers matter.  New posters should never be considered dunces or geniuses since we don't want to jump to conclusions based on small sample size.  The "veteran" posters, though, have a long enough record for me to know if they are damned idiots.

    i think doubront has been good so far, no great but good. Hopefully his next time out he can pitcher deeper into the game. He cant be tossing 5 innings every start as it would put a lot of wear on the pen. He did get 7 k's today which shows he can miss bats with his stuff. Watching him pitch, he resembles lester quite a bit the way he works the corners and his pitches as well. Hard to say yet what we have in him, but he is intruiging.

    the kid thru an excellent game. He didnt get much help in the 5th. Youk should have caught the ball that got by him. Ross totally misplayed the double over his head and even the shot to center i couldnt help but think Ellsbury may have got that one

    All good points, if the sox make the plays on D, he only gives
    up 1.  Had a killer curve today.

    Hope as the season goes on he wont wear down as quick.

    The good news is that the Sox are 2-0 in games he's started. In both games he did a pretty good job keeping them in the game for 5 innings and is showing signs that he has the tools to be a very good #5...If you look inside the numbers...His 13-4 K/BB ratio in 10 innings pitched is pretty good. Walks are a tad high. However his 1.70 WHIP not so much. Both his strikeouts and baserunners allowed per inning are at the root of his high pitch counts...If you look a little deeper. His ground ball (7) to fly ball (22) ratio is another area where he could improve.

    Fact of the matter is 2 starts is a pretty small sample but I would say the early results are positive. He has faced two division rivals and has shown that he can compete and keep his team in the game. After 10 or so starts we'll have a better feel for excatly what he'll brings to the table. Ideally he'll continue to improve and begin to learn how to pitch deeper in games and by years end the reality is that if he pitches to a sub 4.5 ERA and gives us 30 starts and 180 innings. I think we'd all take that...
