    Why where was the ball hit? Game center said deep left center and it's pretty deep out there.

    I'm not knocking Papi he hit it pretty well. I am looking forward to seeing AGon do the same. I look at the homerun tracker site and I was surprised that a few homers I thought were pretty deep in left center were homers almost nowhere else.  Mind you it might have been the wind that the sight also takes  into account.

    Wake had only thrown 70 something pitches. Granted , he has not been starting lately but he was not really showing any signs of tiring. And , if you are going to the pen , why Jenks of all people. The guy has been horrible. Very strange thinking by Tito.  This team is in such a rut. They keep finding new ways to lose.

    DUMB. Why take Wakefield out when he only needed one out? Think he would have given up a hit and walked three before he got that third out? Me either.

    Tito has little feel for pitchers.  Why remove Wakefield for Jenks?

    I think we have to remember here that a lot of posters seem to think Francona should magically be able to pull starters BEFORE they give up any runs...if Wakefield had given up a couple more hits and run(s) resulted, the same people would be screaming and demanding to know why Tito didn't pull him.

    I think Wake could have been left in for one more out too, but I also don't think the 20-20 hindsight whiners have much room to complain. If there's anything less than a perfect result in any situation, they'll find a way to blame Francona for it.

    Is there any doubt that Albers is better than Jenks?

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Sunday's game thread Mariners @ Sox : Absolutely no clue why he turned to Jenks in the first place when Albers, whose been by far the most effective middle reliever for us this year, was available.

    My guess is Lloyd, he wanted to get Jenks back out there after the last disaster, but after he walked in the first run, give him the hook. bring aceves up, jenks needs to go down and work on whatever the problem is

    I agree. I am curious to know why he pulled Wake instead of letting him finish the inning. I agree with having him on a short leash so if he gave up another hit, pull him.

    And he should have had Jenks on a shorter leash considering how he's been pitching.

    I watched a spring training game this year in which Jenks could not get anyone out and blew a big lead to a bunch of Twins minor leaguers. I could see right then that there was a problem . All Remy and Orsillo did was laugh and joke about losing the coveted " Mayor's Trophy ."  Not one word about how sloppy and out of shape Jenks was.  Sure enough, he has continued to stink it up in the regular season.

    Well, he is the manager. The buck has to stop with him. You have to really stretch it to defend his moves in that inning.

    I don't care what anyone says, Carl Crawford is an outstanding ballplayer and it is only a matter of time before he starts to click. How can anyone give up on him?

    Before this game started, I think most of us would have been happy with a 2-2 game and both bullpens in. Now we have to find a way to win this one.

    Wakefield, once again, comes through in what has to be a very difficult situation... resigned to mop up duty and emergency starts... tough to be ready under those conditions... can't ask for much more than what he gave today.... too bad that Jenks can't seem to get anybody out at the moment.
