    Very good effort by Lester and the Sox bullpen.

    Miller hitting 98 on the gun April 1st is encouraging for the Sox, it looks like he's found his niche.

    Hats off to the Sox fans on opening day :-)

     

     



    Miller's always had the heat, TWM, it's his control, that's kept him from being the pitcher a lot of people thought he would be. He walked two in an inning today.

     

     



          Agreed. Those that follow the game know Miller very well.

     

          His control continues to improve but not someone you want coming out of the pen with runners on.  Does much better starting a clean inning.

     

    that was a good piece of pitching by him to Cano


     




    Yeah Jete those who follow the game noticed :-)

    I am very happy with the Sox win yesterday.  But it was against the AAA version of the NY Yankees and it was just one game with 161 to go.  

    Bradley is so patient at the plate. 




    ic, Nothing more invigorating to the fan base then a good prospect coming through on the field.

    Great catch by the kid, he looked good.

    Understood Mike.

    My point was it has become obvious that he is more valuable to the Sox as a situational reliever then in the rotation.

    We are so going to kick your butts today...

     




    Carnie - always running forward - that's what I like.

     

    Enjoy the game and season everyone. I have a feeling this is going to turn out to be a very strange season.

     



          The yankees season will rest on the pitching staff.

     

          Hal's legacy is also on the line.

          If they struggle as many have predicted I expect to see an internal battle where Hank will push to take control of the tight purse strings Hal currently controls.

     



    After the A-Rod contract, don't expect to see Hank anywhere near the Yanks.

     

    The NY Press wants to bury Hal because of his intent on trying to be sound financially yet they blast the Yanks for trotting out a $200 Million team. No pleasing the press.

    IMO - the NY fan base will live with a down year, just like they did in 2008. The key is reaching the financial goal (salary wise) so they can start flexing their financial muscle again in 2015.




    Dead on.

    Unless a trade like Giancarlo Stanton presents itself which the Yankees would spend the farm for things could be quiet in 2013.

    Cano has dumped Boras for JZ.

    A glimmer of hope there.

    But Mike only topped by his fly on the wall insight in the Yankee boardroom.

    A dagger fight for power between Hank and Hal Steinbrenner a violent death to the loser.

    Who else saw it coming?

                      What you saw from Miller on opening day was what Sox fans have seen for sometime.

                      Facing a pathetic yankee lineup (worst then what the Sox had last Sept.) he walks two batters and Cano follows with a shot just foul down the line. If that's fair the yanks are in business.

                     Yea, he K'd Cano but it was far from a thing of beauty.

                     What I will give you is Miller has improved but still a real work in process.

             Yes, in the end he got it done.

             Where we differ is a "good piece of pitching" IS a thing of beauty. That was not.

             With Cano he escaped a run scoring double by a narrow margine.

             How Miller put himself in that spot speaks of his maturing process.

            Cano was the only threat in the yanks lineup and Miller walked two in front of him.

            Nothing about his performance was good. He skated by.

    For what it's worth, 23-year-old Jesus Montero has a CERA of 0.50 in 18 innings after two road wins (with no passed balls and no steals surrendered) against the defending American League West champion Oakland Athletics.

    Last season Montero posted a CERA of 3.80 in 487.2 innings on a Seattle team that had an overall team ERA of 3.76. The Red Sox posted a 4.70 ERA in 2012.

    Montero, who caught a difficult six-pitcher no-hitter as a 22-year-old, is unlikely to win a Gold Glove anytime soon, but his defensive shortcomings have been exaggerated.

    Cera is useless with montero and the limited number of innings caught. Besides being a sketchy stat anyway if not used properly.

    Good points ... Jesus Montero's 2012 CERA of 3.80 was inflated by the fact that he caught only six of the 33 starts by Felix Hernandez, who had an ERA of 2.90 when Montero caught and 3.06 overall. In other words, Montero's CERA likely would have been lower if he had been Hernandez's primary catcher.
