Great come back for V Mart, 5 for 5 and 4 of those hits were doubles! Really helped a slow starting Lackey.
I like John Lackey, I just think he hasn’t found his groove yet. It’s coming.
Oakland again tonight. Dice K on the mound.It should be a long one. I think all Dice K games should be in the afternoon.
Pretty ugly win for Sox (Scott Lauber, Boston Herald) No win is Ugly! We take them any way we can get them! Lackey didn’t look great, but the bullpen helped out! and bottom line, We Won!
Josh is going to miss his next rotation, instead of Wednesday he will be starting Friday, Well that is if his back is feeling better. After being told by Tito that Wakefield would be starting Wednesday and he would be Friday he told John Farrell that he tweaked his back. Okay maybe he did, and hopefully a little therapy and whirlpools will make him all better for Friday. I don’t want to think that Josh is becoming a prima donna.
Wakefield the veteran, was furious when he was demoted to the bullpen and has appeared in three games since. This is also a statement from the Herald. I don’t really believe it. Wakefield does not appear the type to get Furious. I don’t think it’s in his nature. But I for one am very happy he gets a start tomorrow. Please Timmy be on your game!
He has five RBI in his past four games after racking up six in his previous 19. It’s not the Papi of old, but looks like he finally has something going for him. And that RBI last night could very well have been the game winner!
Jon Lester did what we knew he could, what we thought the entire pitching staff could do.
If he keeps this up I may have to start calling him something besides “Crab Cakes”. I want to see a smile on that face when he faces and defeats the Yankees!
Tim Wakefield got an inning on the mound and looked very good.
Kudos to Dallas Braden after throwing a perfect game against Tampa Bay Rays on Mothers Day, the perfect gift for his Grandmother, who happen to be at the game!
It took three days, but yesterday was a pretty good day for Baseball! Now it’s on to Toronto and John Lackey.
John Lackey starts tonight against his former teammates, let’s just hope he is as lucky as Beckett and Lester were the past two nights!
Big Papi still struggling, I’m sure the bad press is not helping at all. That stuff gets into your head and you can’t seem to do anything right. I’d like to see him on the DL for a few days and then maybe playing with Portland Seadogs for a few weeks just to get his confidence back.
Stupid is as Stupid does! Do I think they should have tasered this young man? No I think that was a bit excessive! But really, shouldn’t he have know better?
Ernie Harwell told the Tigers’ tales for more than 40 years.Beloved by generations of baseball fans who grew up enraptured by his rich voice and quirky phrases on the radio, Ernie passed away yesterday after a long battle with cancer. He was 92. R.I.P. Ernie

Well at least Big Papi had a decent weekend. 2 homeruns, one off a left hander.
What is with the pitching staff? Are you aware that Jon Lester, John Lacky, and Clay Buchholtz wives are all having babies this summer? and Jonathan Paplebon’s wife just had a baby. Do you think there is a connection with this and the crappy way they all have been pitching? You would think they could plan things a little better? And Dice K and Beckett? What is there problem?
I think there should be less said about Big Papi, Mike Lowell, and Tim Wakefield and more said and done with the Pitchers!
On the other hand i’m liking Scott Schoeneweis. PV’s he has a really good year.
“The numbers tell everything,” Beckett said “They’re not good.”
Well that is something we all know. But he is not alone, what the hell is wrong with all the pitchers, except Wakefield, who has been banished to the bullpen? It’s not right, Beckett, Lester, Lackey, Buckholtz all looking pretty sad. But Wakefield goes to the bullpen because Dice K is finally coming back. So Wrong.
Wake as always, the gentlemen, pitched Sunday. The Sox lost, but not Wakefield. He was winning with 2 outs in the 7th and Terry decides to take him out, Why? he wasn’t tired, he was doing fine. So the outcome, we lost the game.
I can’t say I am looking forward to Dice K, like most I am tired of him, but I will give him the benefit of the doubt for one game, then, well, we shall see.
Just for the record we did win last night, but to quote the boston herald, someone had too.
