Remlinger ‘s Got to Go

I know he’s only played in 3 games for the Sox, but I already can’t stand our newest reliever Mike Remlinger, a lefty we got from the Cubs on August 10th. The 38 year-old reliever was not getting it done in Chicago and what Epstein and the Sox brass thought we’d get out of him escapes me. In his first 3 games, he’s pitched just 1 complete inning and let up 7 runs (6 earned). In Chicago, he had an ERA just under 5.00 and the 3 debacles he’s thrown in Boston now has it over 6. Here’s some advice for Theo, cut your losses while you can.

    Honestly. Is this the team they’re hoping to bring to the World Series again? Or are they just players they’re hoping to get plenty of experiences before the fall kicks in?

    Greetings from the Birmingham (UK) moblog!

    I saw ‘Fever Pitch’ (the movie) last night. Over here it’s been retitled ‘Pefect Catch’, but anyway.

    I know nothing about baseball, nothing about Boston, but it has piqued my interest in both. I’ll be in Boston on honeymoon in just over a month, and plan to have a trip down to the stadium to have a look.

    Anyway, hello!
