Red Sox - DLed Wells

Boston Red Sox - Placed P David Wells on the 15-day DL; recalled P Lenny Dinardo.

And once again, the Red Sox dodge the “Who do we piss off, Bronson ,Wade, or Tim?” bullet for another couple of weeks as Wells will be out for roughly a month according to media estimates.  John Halama will temporarily be in the rotation, which isn’t really a good thing, with Dinardo being the last lefty.

Uh-oh...

Stop. Halama time.

Lenny DiNardo called up. Diana DeGarmo will do backups for him.

Stop. Halama time.

A lot of guys might have retired after released and moved in an out of the rotation as much as Halama has been the past few years. John is, however, too legit to quit.

Anything to keep Bronson in the rotation.
   5. Dave Cyprian Posted: April 26, 2005 at 09:37 PM (#1290047)
kevin, no he appeared to have a leg or knee injury when he came off the mound to field a ground ball to his right (towards 3rd base). i forgot which leg.

Are you sure Mantei didn't go on the DL also? I mean, he rolled his ankle. That's tough.
   7. Biff, highly-regarded young guy Posted: April 26, 2005 at 09:39 PM (#1290053)
By the way, why in the f**k was DiNardo brought up instead of Youkilis? Do we really need EIGHT RELIEVERS until Miller comes up to make his start?

Darren's Frank Grimes rant re: Francona leaving in pitchers after injuries isn't humor, now its prophecy.
   9. Baldrick Posted: April 26, 2005 at 09:42 PM (#1290060)
Youkilis had to stay in Triple A. He needs the opportunity to play. If he were on the Sox, he'd just sit on the bench watching Vazquez play. No one wants that.

I'd hope he'd get the starts if he were brought up...

Though now that I think about it, I think you're being sarcastic.

With Halama starting, you might need all eight in one game.

I'm shocked that a spry young pitcher like Wells would get hurt.

Of course nobody could see this contract turning out bad. :-)
   13. bibigon Posted: April 26, 2005 at 10:39 PM (#1290164)
They save money for every start he misses!
   14. karlmagnus Posted: April 26, 2005 at 10:41 PM (#1290168)
AND get better pitching once Miller's back!

FYI, on BBTN Gammons said that the Red Sox believe it will be closer to 6-8 weeks instead of 4-6 weeks for Wells.

I'm sure this got discussed in the Chatter somewhere, but for those who don't wander that way, there you go.

YOU SUCK YOU POS.

Btw, that one game I saw at Fenway, Halama beat the Sox 8-3.

It was sad.

The media has made a great deal of the Sox supposedly having a problem of which pitcher they would have to send to the pen once Miller was healthy. But I think it was a very good possibility all along that someone would get injured at some point in the season, either Wells and his numerous issues or Miller having to come back slowly from surgery. I never thought the rotation would ever be too crowded.

There's a lot of dreck in the pen right now: Myers, DiNardo, and Neal are all taking up a lot of space out there and provide next to nothing for the Sox. Halama is more useful from the pen, but they're still carrying too many relievers.

You don't want to wear out guys like Timlin and Embree in blowouts. And with the Red Sox, there are a lot of blowouts. That's what guys like Neal are for.

Soft tossing lefties aren't exactly an ideal choice for Fenway Park, are they?

And this is evidenced by Boomer's foot injury?
   21. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: April 27, 2005 at 02:52 PM (#1292218)
WAkefield for closer!
   22. Loren F. Posted: April 27, 2005 at 02:56 PM (#1292227)
Was Boomer's sock bloody?
   23. Smiling Joe Hesketh Posted: April 27, 2005 at 03:50 PM (#1292366)
Schilling on the 15 Day DL with a new bone bruise in his gimpy ankle.
   24. 1k5v3L Posted: April 27, 2005 at 03:56 PM (#1292389)
That's what Schilling gets for kicking Sweet Lou when he's down.
   25. Der Komminsk-sar Posted: April 27, 2005 at 04:33 PM (#1292510)
"And this is evidenced by Boomer's foot injury?"
i thought it was a reference to dinardo.

My bad if it was.
