      Do you really think he was throwing AT Ortizs head??

      Yes, defenitely. They're major league pitchers, they have control beyond what you think. He went high and inside which can result in getting plugged in the head. When you want to hit somone throw at his rib cage and down, not the neck and up.

      So when the pitcher threw behind Manny, thats where he wanted to throw it because he has great control?? When a pitcher throws one 3 feet over a batters head it was on purpose[remember RJ in that all star game ]??
      "He went high and inside which can result in getting plugged in the head"
      So it can happen by mistake
      If a pitcher can miss his spot over the plate, why can't he miss his spot when he is trying to hit someone?
      I honestly can't see why he would try to hit him in the head.

      I don't think he was trying to hit him in the head, I think it was a riser that got away from him, honestly

      Well your right... but the point I'm trying to make here is that if you throw 'high and inside' there is a chance your gonna hit someone in the head... that's just how it is and it happens all the time. MLB pitchers know this, if you played baseball ever you would know this as well. When you throw high like that, it's bushleague and it's not a mistake (rarely is) especially in their situation that he threw it there. If you really just want to hit someone then hit him in the ribcage or below... like what Arroyo did. When a pitcher throws at someone in the upper region, especially the head you'd better hope they get out of the way.

      How do you know his intention was to go high?? You don't.
      How do you know his intention wasn't to hit him in the thigh? As I said before its never the intention of the pitcher to throw a ball 58 feet but it happens, and its never there intention to throw one to the back stop but it happens, and I am sure you have seen a pitcher MANY times miss their spot by A LOT.

      When you make a mistake its busch league?? Mike Timlin hit Jeter in the head a couple weeks ago on a pitch that he wanted high and inside. He made a msitake and hit him.

      I believe that in the situation he felt he needed to hit someone and that may be busch league, he had his shot at Manny. But I don't think after missing Manny he thought "I have to hit Ortiz in the head now."

      Wells is a over weight, 40 plus year old. Him coming back in 15 days or 80 days doesn't mean he will be healthy for any long stretch.

      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!!
      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....

      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.

      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.

    25. 04-27-2005 12:58 PM #50
      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.
