Looks like the Red Sox found their spot closer.

The Phils move Brett Myers to the pen. OK, I guess when you are desperate...I don't know. But if you move him to the pen, your staff ace, wouldn't you...gee...I don't know...USE HIM?

They bring him in the 8th tonight with a 1-0 lead. Shuts 'em down. Naturally, with Tom Gordon having blown every lead so far this season, Myers must stay in. He has to. They couldn't bring in Gordon. Never in a million years.

Gordon pitches the 9th, blows the lead, pitches the 10th, loses the game.

2-1.

Manuel fired in the end of May. This organization is historically slow moving on these things.

If it were me, he would be fired on March 10, 2005.

Insane Sox/Yankees battle last night, and it looks like we're in for a long one already again today.

Yup, extremely long but the end result was highly satisfying.

Damn...Today was as big a game as a game can be in mid April (still not huge). But I don't want the Atlanta Braves to get any more confidence. I still shudder to think how good this offense can be when Delgado and Wright Finally get going. Beltran and Reyes have been carrying the team now and hopefully the other two boppers can pick it up when those two finally cool off.

Another crazy Sox/Yankees battle today, man FOUR HOME RUNS IN A ROW for the sox. Manny, J.D. Drew, Mike Lowell, and Varitek consecutively.

Four in a row!! I couldn't believe that. Even stranger that JD Drew was a part of the four HR in a row last year in LA as well

Exactly, considering it's only happened like 4 other times. And Francona's dad was part of the only other time one pitcher gave up all four.

While I'm glad the Red Sox won the games this weekend, I'm not too overly excited. In fact, I'm a bit disappointed. Boston had its best pitchers going, and the best performance was Beckett on Saturday, who gave up four earned runs.

That's ok but I doubt it will be good enough when the Yankees have their pitching staff back in order. Because once they do, with the lineup they have, they are going to be very tough to beat.

On a different note however, the bullpen, which was the biggest question mark for the Red Sox entering the season has been outstanding.
Yanks' pitching problems are deeper than the injuries, they got a great effort from Pettitte Friday night and Rivera blew the game.
