dice-K pitched a gem in his major league start for the red sawx:

7 innings pitched, 6 hits, 1 run (earned), 1 walk, 10 strikeouts, and he threw 74 strikes out of 108 total pitches.

not too shabby...

his second start (7 innings, 3 earned runs, 1 walk, 4 k's) was overshadowed by a one-hitter by seattle's 21-year old phenom felix hernandez, as well as the mysterious disappearance of the sawx offense.

they went from a 14-run, 14-hit outburst to one measly friggin hit in the course of 27 hours...

Felix Hernandez is nasty so far. He's given up 4 hits and struck out 18 in his first two starts.

I don't know why there's not more focus on this guy.

Donnelly's last two seasons were nothing like 02-04, but still put up decent numbers for a middle relief guy. Well hopefully he has a strong year.

27 hours later, they bang out 10 runs on 14 hits... go figya.

excellent use of papelbon -- they brought him in to get 2 outs with the tying run at the plate in the 8th.
he struck out guerrero, they're best hitter, with a 97 mph heater.
then timlin came in to mop up the 9th...

Clive and I were at that game.
The place was one huge energy buzz when Papelbon took the mound!

Fenway's not the best park, but it's certainly one of the most expensive parks.

The owners are nothing more than a bunch of cheap pricks!

Miller, how so?

they have the 2nd highest payroll in baseball and they are commited to improving fenway as much as possible.

the team is immensely popular now, and are sold out until the year 2525 or something, so i think its safe to say that the majority of red sawx nation does not share your view...

The tickets have gotten retarded expensive, but I can't say it's because the owners are pricks. Supply & demand. They've done a lot of good improvements to the park...if they were pricks they would have let it be, and would still sell out games.

with another dominant outing by beckett (3-0, 6 innings, 6 hits, 1 run, 5 K's), the sawx swept the angels, who looked like they couldn't wait to get back to the other coast.

the formula for offense seems to be taking shape --
lugo and youk get on base, the big boppers drive them in...

dice-K goes tonight against toronto...

Ah yes another wonderful night in baseball (at least for this Yankee fan) as your over-rated pitcher lost another one. Keep playing that way Matsuzaka and Dice-K will be changed to diceD-k Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

Let me see--his record now for the season is 1 win, 2 losses. How much does that add up to in dollars per loss?

he pitched well enough to win last night (6 innings, 3 hits, 2 runs, 10 k's).
he had one bad inning -- the 4th -- where he lost his composure.

unfortunately the bats were oddly silent... good thing the starting rotation is collectively on top of its game.
