    The most exciting thing to me about tonight’s win was both Venters and Kimbrel. They both looked 2011 good. Just absolutely untouchable. Love it.

    Not to mention the great starting pitching we’ve been getting.

    Remember how when Bobby was manager the TV cameras wouuld always show him? Anyone notice that they hardly ever shoe Freddie?

    Kate Says:

    That’s because Bobby was always standing and cheering on his players. Fredi just sits on the bench thinking up his next stupid move.

    #179: Fredi really does have that unfortunate look of being confused by whatever he’s watching.

    Nate Says:

    I have a question for Bobby V, how do you leave a reliever in long enough to give up 5 ER and not record a single out? Fredi didn’t get away with stuff like that in Miami, so you better believe it ain’t gonna pass in Boston where people actually watch the games.

    Ham’s Sox – Cubs WS I looking good early

    Note to Fredi:

    JASON HEYWARD is 22 YEARS OLD.

    He can play every day.

    Walker Says:

    According to fangraphs Jason is 3rd in all of MLB in WAR. Yet he hits seventh and randomly gets benched. His defense is so important in RF.

    So if Delgado pitches another gem…. When Hudson comes back does J.J. Go to the pen?? Of course not!!

    David Says:

    Yeah, I don’t agree with Heyward getting benched. Let ‘im play, Fredi!

    About Humber’s perfect game from yesterday: does the Seattle stadium not have the check-swing cameras? You know what I mean — the one directly perpendicular to a right-handed batter? I find it maddening that, in all of the highlights, there’s not a true shot showing whether or he checked his swing or whether he swung.

    Nate Says:

    Fredi can’t even make a proper Sunday lineup. He failed to get Diaz or Ross involved. Somewhere Bobby is shaking his head in disappointment.

    DJ Says:

    @186 I looked everywhere but to no avail. It was so frustrating I just wanted to see if the ump missed it or not.

  14. 189
    Steve Says:

    I know I’m late to this party, just seeing the lineup… The Jason benching makes zero sense to me. How at all (and certainly after the last couple of weeks), Fredi is treating Jason like a platoon option is just beyond me.

    Nate Says:

    Awesome catch. Somebody get Prado a bigger dip.

  16. 191
    Nate Says:

    Is Fredi watching this game? Why not argue that awful call?

  17. 192
    Walker Says:

    I miss Bobby Cox arguing calls. It seems Fredi doesn’t do that. Bourn was safe.

  18. 193
    Nate Says:

    That’s the 3rd time in the past week or so that I have seen Bourn called out at 2nd when he was definitely safe.

  19. 194
    Walker Says:

    How is it that In Atlanta GA I can tell when somebody is safe than someone in Phoenix that is a few feet away?

  20. 195
    Frigatedoc Says:

    Oh no…… Durbin….. I can’t watch

  21. 196
    Walker Says:

    What happened to Medlen or C Mart?

  22. 197
    Nate Says:

    If I’m Randall Delgado’s ERA, Chad Durbin is the last guy I want replacing me with 2 men on base.

  23. 198
    Frigatedoc Says:

    New name for Durbin…. “Durwin” or “Durwood” ala Bewitched.

  24. 199
    Nate Says:

    Fredi Gonzalez is the Les Miles of MLB.

    Walker Says:

    Hard to swallow losing a game basically because we walked the pitcher.
