just because it worked doesn't mean it was a good move. if you're tell me that foulke is pitching 3 innings and mo is pitching 2, and which one blows it, even after last night i'd still bet the house on mo. francona had one of those allen iverson moments... you know... the "oh my god why is this asshole taking that horrific shot HEY he hit it he's awesome" moment.

Buh? Foulke had no trouble during the 7th-9th innings. Figure you gotta keep it a one-run game at all costs, then hope you get a run off Mariano in the 9th (which the Sox did, and they almost got another), then let the rest of the scrubs in both bullpens fight it out and see what happens.

Who would you have put in for the 7th inning?

Okay, say Lowe escapes the 6th allowing only Matsui to score (3-3), then Timlin and the infield stink up the 7th and suddenly there's a guy on third with one out. I bring in Foulke right then and there.

fine... i'll agree with that. then you have no choice in the matter. look, it worked out. if he woulda left lowe in longer, he might have gotten shelled and the yankees woulda swept.

i still don't like going 4 innings on two pitchers who aren't used to going 4 innings. it worked this time, but will it work the next time? who knows... maybe, maybe not.

OK gang, time to log off and head over to Fenway, find my normal George Costanza parking spot ("its like sex, why pay for it, when if I apply myself I can get it for free"), suck down a couple of Fenway Franks, try to get my picture taken with Nelson De La Rosa and hopefully watch Petey pitch the Sox back to the Bronx.
Let me know what great revelations come from the mouth of Tim McCarver tonite.

Good luck! Lets hope Pedro can take them into at least the seventh tonight. Both of those bullpens have to be wasted after last night. In case you haven't heard--Schilling has been confirmed as the game six starter should the series go that far.

when... oh fucking when... will red sox managers learn that once Pedro hits the 90 pitch mark to get somebody up in the bullpen IMMEDIATELY, no matter how good he's been up until that point. really now... i'm baffled that no one was up until AFTER jeter drove in three.

Varitek dropped two foul-tip third strikes before Posada hit his infield single. Grr.

The sox need to get into that bullpen. They cannot hit Mussina.

Ashley Gearing was most definitely lip-synching "God Bless America".

Yeah that was pretty bad. Sox are into the 'pen--they have a chance now.
