10+ run blowouts may not be as entertaining as a close game, but over the long haul, it's nice to have some really easy wins just to take the pressure off the team to pull off come from behind wins night after night. It also takes pressure off the bullpen's better relievers to pitch night in and night out, and lets the back end guys carry some of the load.

As far as pitching Lester has been a big disappointment. It's known that he's a slow starter...but holy crap we're getting close to the All-Star Break.

As far as hitting Gonzalez has been terrible. 5 home runs...seriously, 5 frickin' home runs. Now it's a concern if he can even hit 10 this year.

I don't think he gets to 15. Just my opinion.

Last year was a great year for Agon. He had a high BA, OBP, tons of hits, etc. He also put up those numbers after coming off of shoulder surgery.

However, this year...SMH. He's not drawing walks, he's not hitting for power, etc. I'd have to assume he's fighting an injury...or he's following the recent trend of high-paid Red Sox players - suckitude.

Aaron Cook has been informed that he will not make his scheduled start Saturday for Triple-A Pawtucket.
This means that he will likely be summoned to Boston to start in place of Clay Buchholz (illness) on Sunday against the Braves. The veteran right-hander has been on the disabled list since May 6 with a lacerated knee but his rehab is essentially complete. Initially expected to be used in a long relief role with the Sox upon his return to the majors, Cook could spend some time in the ravaged rotation if he's successful right away.

He makes for a descent spot-starter, at best, in that kind of role. His role in the BP will be key if we are to make a playoff push without acquiring Thornton. I think Padilla may be making more of a push for a full time 5th if we end up dealing the likes of Dice-K or end up pulling off a big Beckett/Lester deal (which I have mixed feelings about). I like him, but I think his command is less than that of a regular starter.

Nomar
06-24-2012, 01:29 AM
I think hes only good out of the bullpen in garbage time situations like long relief.

Hes 26, so it would be great if he can be a solid starter, but i doubt hed sustain his success. Out of the pen hes a joke in late innings. When Bobby V used him as a setup guy it was horrendous.

I like him, but I think his command is less than that of a regular starter.

Hard to complain about his command in his 2 starts ... only 1 walk in the 2 starts.

Also, I tend to put more value on relievers having better command than starters, at least in terms of giving up walks. Starters seem to me to be able to give up a couple of walks here and there and work around them. But relievers really can't afford to give up walks in the late innings, particularly if they come into a game in the middle of an inning with men already on base.

Also, from what I've heard, Morales actually had some starting experience with the Rockies before he came to the Sox, so it's obviously not an unfamiliar experience for him.

VenezuelanMet
06-24-2012, 09:20 AM
I've followed Morales a lot in the winter league here and I was mad as hell with the Rockies when they moved him to the bullpen at such a young age and without a real shot at starting, he should have been kept in the minors starting a couple of more seasons.
I dunno if he can go and be the starter he projected to be as a prospect but it can be interesting if the Red Sox at least give him the chance. He's still relatively young, I still think the Rockies mishandled him horribly.

For a guy that so many here don't seem to have a particularly high opinion of, Morales has now pitched two very respectable starts as a fill-in starter.

It's very well possible that Morales' is better suited for starting. 2 good starts in a row, 1st one could have been better/longer if he was already stretched out. In the pen, it looks like he's nibbling too much.

Look at CJ Wilson...it's not like it hasn't happened before.

As for now, I would give Morales more starts to see if those 2 starts were just a fluke. I mean, the guy is still relatively young.

Youk should've caught that, and anybody else besides Dmac would've caught that triple by Hinske.

Youk should've caught that.

No way it was near the outside of the bag, low, and thrown hard at that. Youk had to dive it wouldve been a great play if he managed to catch that and tag him out.

i guarantee WMB wouldnt have gotten that either

Sight of Youk getting the standing ovation was very nice to see.

You guys see Youkilis at the end of last inning? Hugging his teammates and giving Fenway faithfuls a curtain call. Wonder if there's something unreported that's going down today..?

Seems as if Youk has been traded. Perfect way to go out, that's for sure.

Dont know about you guys but i almost cried there. Moving moment and a great way to go out for a Sox hero.

Same. It's hard to imagine the Red Sox without Youkilis.

Source: Can confirm that a deal for Youkilis is in works though "not complete.'' Can also confirm he was lifted as precaution. #RedSoxTalk

Weird that they let him hit if that is true.

We don't beat Cleveland in 2007 without Youkilis, he was a monster that series.

Tears of joy, wish I could have been at Fenway to see it and cheer him on with the rest of 'em. Glad he got the ovation he deserved!

As seemingly shrewd and disconnected as he is, he is a lovable character and a gritty ball player. I hope he goes somewhere good for him. Gonna miss the greek god of walks!

BV sure knows how to play to the crowd at times. Pretty incredible moment yesterday with Youk. I'm glad the crowd responded that way. Youk's private moment in the sun and he deserves it. I saved the game on my DVR. I'll watch it again a few times for sure.
