Billy got the call in the 8th in a 2-2 game against Pittsburgh today. He got hammered for a double, a HR and a single. final score 2-4 Pirates. Billy to have another sleepless night.

my reaction: A. i was happy i didnt have to worry about having a stroke.

B. i was happy i didnt have to spend my evening thinking up new and horrendous names for Billy.

C. i actually felt sorry for him. he was choking back tears waiting for Jack to get to the mound.

ive spent some time at the Marlins stadium, the fans are bandwagon and spoiled and turn ugly very quickly. we were kind to Koch compared to the hell he will face to that crowd!

Hes a stand up guy and a nice guy too. He just has forgotten how to pitch

As long as he's not blowing games for the Sox, I'll feel bad for him.

But yeah I feel for the poor guy. Well he's not exactly poor, but you get the idea.

He was a good guy, too bad he sucked and apparently continues to do so.

Million dollar question - did Kenny make the deal knowing we were going to lose Foulke no matter what, so this was a chance to maybe lockup someone who was as good as Foulke for a number of years? I wouldn't say the trade backfired, in that sense, unless you're missing those draft picks we may have received based on Foulke's 2003 rebound year.

As I recall, Foulke was God awful and we had to take him out of save situations in favor of Osuna, Marte, etc. This was a GOOD TRADE at the time to anyone comparing Foulke numbers to Koch numbers. I myself was high on the trade until about August last year. I let my pre-concieved notions of Koch get in the way of his reality. I'm glad he's gone, and I'm ecstatic we have Takatsu
