Less resistance = less effective knuckle ball

Tim Wakefield out, Kyle Snyder in.

Sucks for Wakefield, but he hasn't been fully healthy for the last third of the season, and Jon Lester is a better option as a starter than a banged-up Wakefield.

So you can see Beckett school the Rockies.

Should have gotten tix for game 3 or 4. When the Sox sweep you'll at least get your money back.

Saw that. I don't get Snyder over Tavarez, at all. Maybe JT is nicked up somewhat? I've been surprised 3 series in a row now that he wasn't on the roster, I've got to think something is up. I'd take JT over Gagne anyway...

i'd have to think that the red sox are just gonna roll right over the rockies but who the heck thought the rockies would be here in the first place.



whoever wins game 1 will win the series.

I think that's probably true. I think winning game 1 would give the Rox a huge lift, beating Beckett.

Now I hear Rudy Giuliani is rooting for the Red Sox? WFT??? Is he that pissed about his boy Torre getting bounced, or just stumping for votes in Massachusetts?

More like stumping for votes in New Hampshire.

Thanks for making sure that doctors will always be gamefully employed.

something to think about, especially if colorado is able to split at fenway...

assuming that boston wants both ortiz and youkilis in the lineup, that means that boston will be fielding, in the huuuuuuge outfield of coors field, either
a) manny, dinggleberry, youkilis
or worse
b) manny, drew, youkilis.

either way it's not exactly going to be a gold glove outfield out there, with manny and youk occupying the cornet spots and having to cover a gynormous amount of ground.

Youkilis plays 3B as well, so they can take Lowell out. My guess is that each of Lowell, Youkilis, Ortiz takes a game off in Colorado and they leave Drew in RF.

There might be a game or two where Manny comes out for Crisp/Ellsbury late as well.
