I mean come on, the Sox worked Timlin hard over the last few days all the while Paps had extended rest.. :-t to coaches decision...Thats all I was trying to say


So why not just post exactly that in the Sox Game Commentary thread and alleviate us of another Papelbon thread here in Leftovers? :-?

Yeah, my idea of a top flight reliever is that you use him in the most critical situations, not just in the 9th inning with a lead. Because if you don't use him in tight situations where you need a good pitcher the most, you lessen that pitcher's value immensely (and in the case of a pitcher like Ryan or Rivera, it becomes a question of why are you paying the guy all that money?). I hate when managers become a slave to the save.

Francona isn't good at bullpen management, so I wasn't really suprised.

I thought Hort was a mod :-?
If not, he should be.
I mean somebody needs to put all of Miners posts back where they belong ... in general talk.

he probably should be, i definetly wouldnt object to that. im just asking to give a break on the constant correcting. if you dont like the post dont read it and when the post is obviously out of place it will be moved.
