G64: Rockies 12, Red Sox 2

Josh Fogg (5.06, 88 ERA+) / Curt Schilling (3.49, 127 ERA+)

After missing two weeks with a left groin injury, RHP Fogg allowed six runs and 11 hits in five innings against the Astros on Thursday. ... The only Rockie with as many as 10 plate appearances against Schilling is catcher Yorvit Torrealba (5-for-10).

Fogg is consistent: His ERA+ from 2002: 99, 81, 89, 85, 88, 88.

With Pedroia getting the night off, Francona considered having Youkilis (.421 OBP) lead off, but is opting instead for Crisp (.281 OBP). Sigh ....

At least Yook is #2. No major league team -- not even the worst team in the game -- should have a sub-.300 OBP guy leading off. Anyone who gets on base that infrequently should be fighting like hell to avoid being sent to the minors.
Coco Crisp, CF
Kevin Youkilis, 1B
David Ortiz, DH
Manny Ramirez, LF
J.D. Drew, RF
Mike Lowell, 3B
Jason Varitek, C
Alex Cora, 2B
Julio Lugo, SS

Didn't Pedroia just have a game off in the last road trip? Is he nursing something? And why did Cora pinch run for him last night? Cora does not look faster than Pedroia to me.

Terry must've been watching my MLB 2K7 game last night, in tourney mode I had Boston and Colorado facing each other, Crisp went 3-4 with a RBI against Fogg.

Schill getting knocked around by the Rockies is not my idea of protecting our lead at the moment.

Lowell HR doesn't take that much of the sting out -- we need Curt to settle down a bit.

Rocks are not a bad team. But you we should be able to get to Fogg.
