    Sox are calling up Jose De La Torre

    Sox called up Jose DLT to the majors and optioned Webster to Pawtucket.  Jose is not on the 40 so they are reportedly working on the move to clear a spot.  Jose is brought up to bolster shaky bullpen.  Jose has been solid BP arm during WBC, ST, and minor with the Red Sox.

    Interesting that they are letting Aceves rot down there.

    It was only two weeks ago when we had too many good arms in the pen. Did not know how to fit them all in. How quickly things have changed. And , how quickly the Sox success has gone sour.

    They are still in first place, did you expect them to win 115 games?

    Most expected them to win around 81 games (.500). They should be thrilled that the team, even with the recent losses, are still on pace to do better than that.

    Well, these notions are really dependent on particular points of view that I, for one, find a bit suspect.  

    First off, I am not sure there is a truer axiom in baseball than the old "you can never have too much pitching".  Why?  Because its a war of attirition.  Guys will inevitable get hurt.  And when they do, you can either fall back to 'good arms but overworked' (current Red Sox) or 'overworked and undertalented' (the alternative).  I'll take the former.  I think most sensible folk did not think we had 'too man'y good arms.  

    As for the Sox success going sour, I have as hard a time mouthing those words after any particular 5 games stretch.  Its a long season.  And it would have been foolhearty to expect the Sox to keep winning at the ridiuclous clip they were at.  At some point they were going to take it on the chin from someone, and the best bet for when was a visit to Arlington.  Lets talk again next week and see if 'gone sour' is still a fair assesment at that point.

    In case most of you don't remember I predicted this team would regress at some point. I believe it was on a thread started dear old Frank from Gloucester.

    But, I know you many of you only would remember what I say if it turns out to be wrong.

    The good news is , this team is much better than last year's team.

    The bad news is, it's not good enough yet.

    But remember, Rome wasn't built in a day.

    Losing can become a habit very easily.  " Sensible " folks were suggesting phantom injuries to make room for all the good arms.  Now we are raiding Pawtucket for help. Yes , we can revisit this next week. But things seem to be going downhill at the moment. I guess it depends on your definition of going sour. Losing five of six is not too sweet.

    Haha.  True enough.  An interesting semantic position:  sour, as the absence of sweet.

    500 ball is a realistic goal. Last year we won just 69 games. Thats a 12 win improvement. My expectations ARE higher, but just not for this year. As Zill said, this is going to take a while. Epstein left this franchise in shambles and financially hamstrung. So far Cherington has done a fair job at extricating the team from a very bad position. We will be better this year than last, and hopefully better next year than this year.

    Last year , they completely collapsed ( quit ?  ) after the big trade. That made the record worse than it would have been.

    I  agree, but  a lot of posters were saying that they are no better than a .500 team.

    Hanrahan is goin on the 60 day DL. JDLT takes his spot on the roster no coinciding move needed. They have also sent Webster back to AAA.
