Well if Romine plays once again like he has been they need to open their eyes and minds a little wider.
Worth has been better at the plate and actually, better in the field as well.
I think Romine is highly skilled defensively but I would bet his defense will be affected by his offense eventually.

I defended Romine a little bit last night but aside from that, I don’t see why it’s so hard for Worth to get PT. Seems to me that, when healthy, he’s done the job everytime he’s been called upon.

He is aware of that:
“Andrew Romine said in BAL he knows he’s got to make plays in field above all else, can’t take his at-bats with him out to SS. So he knows.” @beckjason

There are doubts about the range of Worth at SS

Same strategy as always v Peavy. Get him the 2nd and 3rd time through the order.
Play a good game, guys, I’m missing the Billboard Music Awards for this one.

they’re going an arm short in the bullpen until at earliest Friday. hopefully each starter can go at least 6 until then.

ESPN en español reported that Davis din not take well being benched today. He made a tantrum

any more information? i want to hear more about this

He made it known in the clubhouse and batting practice and refused to sign autographs

We have 3 hard hit balls and nothing to show for it…..they have 2 sof hit bloopers and have a run……that’s Fenway for ya

Well so far Ausmus’ s strategy of putting lefties in against Peavey has failed righties getting all the hits


I guess by now everyone has realized that. It was a secret but Victor has more power batting LH

Boston gave way one run. the ball was in Miguel ´s weak zone but Holt was too short


That was a great play

Was Victor really out on that play? They never showed a closer replay but it sure looked questionable.

We thought so too

don kelly made up for the throw home, by catching that bullet by sanchez to complete the DP at 3rd

Kelly was wrong twice. 4-1 you go to 1B. And the throw was bad.
Sanchez was lucky but ending in good position helps and also was quick

Vizquel told ESPN, Romine is getting regular time to allow him to gain consistency


Ian Kinsler makes all 3 PO’s in one inning.

They are rolling. Good for Torii and that HR. Takes away the play last year that they kept showing over and over.

1. Add on runs each time Boston scored.
2. Romaine does shine even with a silent bat.
3. RaReAlKroJoba shines even more.
Kudos to Mig, Vic! Tori,Ian,Alex,And even Anabel for his start. This team is really working on all cylinders right now. Can even forgive Donny’s error. Health is the key factor now! Eleven straight on the road is insane. On to tribe land.

Clean sweep at Fenway first since 1983 . Looks like this club is hitting on all cylinders . Gotta keep it uo !!!!

The Tigers turned the house of horrors into their own personal field of dreams this weekend. I’m trying to remember a Detroit team that played the game in all facets this well and I’m back to 1987.
I think Brad is doing a masterful job keeping his bullpen pieces fresh and available.
This is a 15-3 run.

maaan I LOVE Miggy!

what a great weekend of baseball – these guys are way too fun to watch. The announcers were drooling over our team last night, almost forgot who they were playing so it was nice for the boys to live up to the hype. This year the add on runs I think are of great importance, we just keep putting in the effort. That homerun by Torii was amazing.
