      tonights game was an embarrassment...and more of the reason i hate Kieth F**k..he's pitched one inning this year in which he hasnt given up a hit, or walked someone...1 inning!!

      Take it easy on Foulke. He's having a rough time of it but it's very early. He's one of the best closers the Red Sox have ever had. He'll bounce back.

      it was in the 4 th inning or so, the score was 8-3, i said to my wife..''wanna go see the house?'' (we're building a new home), gone for an hour and a half, i figure the game will be over. sit down to watch Law and Order (tivo'd), commercial comes on, hop on the net, check the score....

      I had a feeling about last night when Clement couldn't keep the O's down when the Red Sox staked him to an 8-3 lead. Oh well, the Red Sox will bounce back tonight.

      Unreal. I love how easily Sox fans forget that Foulke was one of the top reasons you actually won a world series last season.

      As Kevin McHale used to say to the press after a Celtics loss, "This isn't world peace, it's basketball!"

      After a world series win, it wouldn't surprise me if they finished third this year. It's not the same pitching staff without Pedro and they didn't have a whole lot of injury problems last year. The O's are much-improved. Even Toronto and Tampa have gotten better. It'll be tough to win more than 90 games in that division and the weak central could easily produce the wildcard team this year since there are so many automatic wins.

      Doesn't matter since the Sox finally won it all in my lifetime. I never quite believed it would ever happen.

      same here, he really needs to play what's he's paid. 2 more games like that and the nation will speak. Foulke on the other hand, he's going to have these games, it's not common and he pulled the same stunts last year. O's are a tough team.

      Ah I watched the game last night the O's got alot of cheese hit end of the bat , bloops, ect..Followed by a few bombs...Shoot Tejada hit a 9 iron out of the park...Many good pitches got wasted on crappy hits........

      Foulke needs to find his fastball 84 mph is'nt doing it....the Velocity diff fastball to change and poor location is killing him....Embry is killin us worse than Foulke

      If thats on the money I rather see Schill rehab than keep up these 5 inning outings....I have seen him pitch in person twice this year he looks fat, out of shape and loses command/ velocity after 5 innings or 75 pitches which G60 pointed out....

      Bone bruises are pretty serious stuff.....Can Hanley pitch????

      WEEI just confirmed and they said its something the Sox "hope" will get taken care of in 2 weeks. He had a bone scan done yesterday and found bruised bones in his repaired ankle.

      Speaking of rehab. Is Wade Miller starting in Pawtucket this Thursday? I'm gonna go watch if that's the case.

      Same here. It's being called a "mild" bone bruise.

      Quote »
      BOSTON -- The Boston Red Sox rotation took another hit Wednesday when the team said ace Curt Schilling would be out at least two weeks with a bruise on his right ankle.

      General Manager Theo Epstein called the injury a "mild bone bruise" on the same ankle that Schilling had had surgically repaired during the offseason, but Epstein said the bruising was higher on that ankle. Still, team doctors believe the injuries are "indirectly related."

      "That general area has been through a lot," Epstein said.

      Schilling, 1-2 with a 7.13 ERA this season, began experiencing pain in the ankle the eighth inning of Saturday's loss at Tampa Bay, Epstein said.

      The announcement came less than 24 hours after the team said left-hander David Wells would miss at least a month because of a sprained right foot.

      "Having them both go down in 24 hours makes it dramatic," Epstein said. "But we can withstand that. ... It's that type of adversity that really defines a team."

      Schilling will wear a removable boot on the ankle. The team did not say who would fill his spot in the rotation.

      Schilling injured the ankle toward the end of last season, leading to his now-legendary "bloody sock" performances during the team's World Series run last year. He had surgery after the season to repair a ruptured tendon sheath.

      Epstein said he didn't think Schilling rushed through his rehabilitation.

      "His ankle felt fantastic (during spring training)," the GM said. "His ankle felt 100 percent. This was unforeseen."

      The losses of Schilling and Wells leaves the Red Sox with just three members of their season-opening starting rotation -- Matt Clement, Tim Wakefield and Bronson Arroyo.

      Wade Miller, who is working his way back from a frayed rotator cuff, was scheduled to make a rehabilitation start for Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday. But he's not expected to return to Boston's rotation until mid-May, Epstein said.

      It sucks but it's better now than in September. Time for Wonder boy to go and earn his money. At least it sounds like they aren't going to be rushing Miller into duty which would be a bad idea.

      Call up Alvarez and give him a shot.

      My boy Wade needs to come up immediately! Hope he is well, losing wells and now shill is not good however i don't usually start getting concerned until the All Start break.

      They said the most optimistic return would be 2 weeks. He will have a boot on his foot and only do pool work. So my understand is that he won't be throwing which can't be good. Sounds like they want him off the DL in 2 weeks but won't they need rehab games to get the arm strength back??

      I normally wouldn't be concerned about injuries this early . Only reason I would be is that these are 2 pretty heavy guys [Wells and Schill] so I would be worried about reaccuring ankle problems.

      As for Wade he is a guy that hasn't been healthy for awhile and he has issues with his delivery that aggrevates the situation.


      I think this came out today. Irony.

      It's no new news that the dude has a big mouth. He's been like that his entire career. A former MLB pro player that plays on my summer league baseball team (Pete Shourek) tells us all sorts of story's about him & his mouth. The guy is way to political (or acts like he is).

      Wow .... Pete is down to playing summer ball now. Yikes. I always wondered where he went to. Him & Paxton Crawford, Rolando Arroyo, Frank Castillo, El Guapo and a couple of others.

      ... and yes, I wish Curt would SHUT UP and get back to playing ball.

      Yea man, we always make fun of him however the league is competetive and not anyone can play. It's fun standing at second watching him blow people away at the plate... people swing the bat before the ball even gets half way between the mound and home plate. Dudes in the outfiled just stand there with their hands behind their back... literally. He'll only throw when we really need him to or when the beer is getting warm Would like to know what El Guapo is doing these days.

      El Guapo was/is Rich Garces. I think you're thinking of Ugueth Urbina. His mother was kidnapped and held for ransom for months. She was found and rescued a few months ago.

      No I am thinking of El Guapo. Last year he went missing for 10 days or so and reports came out that he was kidnapped. Nobody in his family knew where he was, he missed the last 2 games of whatever league he was pitching in, and his daughter had to except his come back player of the year award.

      That was the last I had heard of the story.

      After doing a google search it turns out he was partying or something

      Sorry, my bad. I never heard about that. I'll have to give it a shot the next time I come home late to the Mrs. though.

      Miller looked decent last night. Struck out the side in the first then was solid through the 5th. Velocity was 91 at the highest, I think.
