    Terry - Listen. Getting a win for the team is more important than Wakefield's personal goals.  Everyone saw he was done and you were trying to squeeze in a win for him, and you don't get any more innings out of him.

    I wasn't about the win.  It was about the innings because of last night.

    These guys don't get that.  They have no idea that when a team goes 16 innings the night before the bullpen is depleted.

    They aren't that smart.

    And did they end up saving the bullpen?

    No, but he felt like he had to try.  Showalter was in the same boat, he left his guy in for 6 runs.  Not much different.

    See that isn't the point.  He wanted to try and save the bullpen because his team went 16 innings last night so he gave his starter a longer leash then he normally would.

    That's baseball 101.  If you don't know this stuff I can't help you.

    Jimdavis,

    Please do not impugn the intelligence of one of our favorite posters, georom, he of the "take 'em out in the first inning if they give up a walk or, worse, a run because that trend will continue."  Unless, of course, the starter stays in and pitches a good game and the Sox win.  In which case, of course, georom will scuttle into some dark corner and wait for the next loss.  In fact, I believe he might be doing that right now.

    Georom,

    You must be related to Softy and Billyboy. After tonight the Sox will be 22 games over .500 possibly on the way to a 100 win season with the second best record in MLB and yet all you do is whine about Francona. Get a life and learn something about baseball, because it's apparent to most like Sgt.Schultz in Hogan's Heroes, "you know nothing".

    I don't get it. In my MLB 2K11, I pitched Beckett Saturday and then turned around and started him on Sunday. Why can't Coma do that, too?

    Re: Take Him Out

    Talking about "take him out" - it's clear that Gonzo needs rest to recover from all those homer swings last week at the ASGame. What a mistake ! Oriole series not the best time to do it with Ortiz sitting out, but his timing's way off (slow stuff fooling him) and didn't he say somewhere that his shoulders are tight ? Bad time to send Sutton down. These "minor" tweaks make all the difference at this level: witness Ells and Beckett last year, Pedey and Youk earlier this year, Lester & Buchholz now. Too easy to get annoyed at sub-par performance when injuries unknown to fans are behind it. Don't you love these guys though ? With everyone healthy we've got the juggernauts of juggernauts !

    Pretty straightforward.

    In another post, I posted that Uehara wasn't available last night because Bucky pitched him for the third straight day on Sunday, despite a 5-run 9th inning lead.  So you can improve your chances marginally on one day by dramatically decreasing them on another day.

    You have to gamble that either Wake gets the out, or that we have enough offense to overcome a one-run deficit.

    Tito gambled and won.
