Game 3 control issues
Wow, the first inning and a half of this game has been fairly tough on the eyes. Seven walks for Cabrera over 1 1/3 innings? Unreal.
And I did say in my last post how much I loved watching Cabrera pitch. This wasn’t what I had in mind.
If the Red Sox can win comfortably, Terry Francona should get an ideal chance to get Foulke in the game in the late innings and see if they can get him on track.
Clearly, Papelbon is the guy in the ninth inning of close games for right now. But I’d put that in pencil, not ink. I do think they’d like Foulke to reclaim his old job. It’s just hard to say if that is realistic right now.
