    Why does it take song for Farrell to recognize when a pitcher has come un-glued? Ir was obviuos a half an hour ago!

    In response to dannycater's comment: Yes, nev, because when Mookie is at the plate, he will register in his head that he's this batting average when he's at this count and will only swing at 1-0, 2-0, more »

    In response to JoeBrady1's comment: Mookie hits the ball hard even though he's almost always behind in the count. Imagine what this guy could do if he wasn't always 0-1? In a court of law, you typical more »

    Since this homestand started, Mookie has been to the plate 14 times, and has yet to swing at a first pitch. Pedroia acutally often  backs away at the first pitch. "Thank you, fellas", says the pitcher more »

    I can imagine Nap feels worse than we do; however, that doesn't change the pathetic AB's we have to watch every night. If he MUST play, Mr. Mgr., for Pete's sake put him 9th! Until castillo gets here more »

    In response to BogieAt12oclock's comment: When they bring Rusney up, I'm guessing he would play CF. Vic has started to hit, so I see him in RF. The question is do they send down Betts or JBJ?  Ha! Ha! more »

    To lose a game against the weak hitting Mariners? Farrel MUST have had a reason for pitching to Cruz. But even had Cruz gone 0 for 20 against Tazawa, it still was an amateurish blunder. There were two more »
