TBS, shut up

I will blame Francona for not taking Beckett out earlier Shank for his stupid column today. And I will start ranting about the Curse of the CHB.

So the Sox better pull it out.

Sounds like someone needs to grow a pair far more than Pedroia needs to grow an inch.

The average height of a man in the US is 5-8" to 5-9" depending on which source you find. If Pedroia is 5'7" tall, about 65-68% of men are taller. If he is 5'9, he's average or even taller.

Not that it matters much when it comes to kicking some serious baseball butt.

If Timlin goes any lower on my loath-o-meter, the bulb might break. Jesus wants you to retire, bubba. Before Monday.

Why was he put back on the roster? Don't we have Paul Byrd now for this kind of situation?

Red sums it up:

For a game that started out like happy hour at Thunder Mountain, it slowly devolved into a torturous, horribly-umpired affair, ultimately crashing with Hindenburgesque splendor around 1:30am, when Mike Timlin--the human white flag--came on and walked three (one intentionally) before giving up the sac fly that sent us all to bed. ...

Ellie wonders why Byrd didn't go in instead of Timlin last night, er, this morning:

... Timlin used to be good, but now every time he strides out of the bullpen, Red Sox Nation mumbles a collective "oh, f&%k." Because we've seen this before, and we know the most likely result will be a swift kick in the crotch. ...

Jeff Louderbeck agrees:

Terry Francona had a choice. With every other reliever used in the bullpen except two, the Red Sox manager could turn to Paul Byrd (who is prone to serving up the long ball but consistently throws strikes) or Mike Timlin (who this year has either walked or allowed a hit to a high percentage of batters he has faced) in the bottom of the 11th inning last night at Tropicana Field. Francona summoned Timlin, and the result was predictable. ...

Peter says it's time to replace Beckett with Byrd for game 5.

KC considers Beckett:

He's definitely affected by an injury, or he's just not good this year. ...
