I never have liked foulke, he was a crybaby and told the sox that he lost his confidence.....................

he has 2 pitches(fastball+ changeup) and has somehow gotten away with it................

Judging by the lack of speed of his fastball, he's going to have to roll his changeup to the plate to make it effective.

Prior is also one of the best in the game but I have to disagree about Beckett. I think he has been overrated since his playoff run and still hasn't proved much in terms of the other two.

rivera is arguably the best closer in the history of baseball and he has one pitch. It is all about attitude and location. Foulke does scare me a bit too though

Foulke has 3 pitches....a 2-seamer, a 4-seamer, and a changeup. And i wouldn't be too worried about him. He's better than anything the sox could of gotten, and he'll save 35 games easily.

I'll try to keep it as unbiased as possible about the pansy they call Pedro...oops...anyway Pedro will not post as many strikeouts in previous years. I say 16 wins, 2.5 era, 165 k

Ahh a Yankee fan who can admit that Pedro is the best in the game...refreshing. Comparing Prior to Pedro is ok in my book seeing how incredible Prior was last year but to lump Beckett into that mix is insulting to both Pedro and Prior. Beckett might be good, even very good but he in no way is comparable to either of the other two.


But don't forget--before they made it big, scouts compared Beckett and Prior as being very, very similar...both will be huge this year (when Prior gets back).

Look, don't worry about Pedro. I'm hoping--for fantasy sake--he has another bad start and I can try to get him cheap.

He'll be fine. Expect at least one DL stint, but wins, good ERA and great whip.
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.
