I really don't understand why JM decided to forfeit this game. We had a chance. I must say I'm rather angry about this decision.

And just who exactly would you like to see in the 6th inning?

You won't see Foulke.
You won't see Howry.
Do you want to see Biddle?
Do you want to see Kip?
How does Matt Ginter grab you?

I'd be angry if I didn't feel the acid eating away at my stomach lining giving me an ulcer before I turn 18.

God damn Embree. Nice recovery Lee. This team is going to make me start smoking like a monkey.

Jer, I am fully aware we have no pen. But, you still don't send your worst pitcher out there.

As much as I hate him he has been doing better as of late. But now he is back to sucking.

Maybe Embree wasn't such a good idea. Now that he's given up a run and loaded the bases I'll get Rocked.

You know you got a problem when Rocky Biddle is an upgrade at pitcher. THIS IS WHY I DIDN'T WANT GLOVER TO START!!!!

This feels like someone is stabbing millions of tiny knives in my very, very slowly.

Embry should never pitch when the sox have a lead.
Manager of the year strikes again.

Ok since Embree and Biddle shouldn't pitch with the lead the bullpen is now down to.

Foulke
Howry
Kip
Ginter

Jerry, what part of "you still don't send out the worst pitcher in baseball" are you struggling with understanding?

HUH???? first of all he said when we are winning so that eliminates half the games. Second of all, when you are winning, your starting pitcher is generally doing well. This was an IGNORANT move.

I'm not struggling with it West I get it.
I'm just making the point that we can't pitch Embree or Biddle because they suck so we are going to pitch Kip Wells and Matt Ginter every day by your logic.

I didn't say don't put in Rocked. Rocked should have started the inning. He had the potential to get out with 1 or 2 runs of damage. Sending out Embree to give up a run and load the bases for Rocked was insane. I'm surprised you don't agree.

No I get what West is saying look if Embree is this ****ing bad then just get his ass off the ****ing team. And if Biddle is hurt then he shouldn't be pitching either.

Thats not the point. The point is, you bring in your worst pitchers in certain situations, like when youre up big or down big. NOT when you have a 3-1 lead on the best team in baseball.

No that was insane, I just didn't have a problem with Embree starting the inning he has been pitching a little better as of late. He is still bad but just not as bad.

I think I said that before Embree even pitched in his first game for us.

And I agree you should the best bullpen pitcher we had was Glover and he is starting now. So Manuel had a choice of putting in Biddle or Kip Wells who both have been bad as of late. I understand exactly what you are saying the problem is that our bullpen sucks.

Earth to Jerry. You still don't put in the walking disaster. Rocked or Kipper had some chance. Embree had none...period.

Ok then get him off the damn team then. If the only reason why we are keeping him is to mop up when we are getting killed then that is stupid.
