Bowden Inserts Himself Into the Equation

Brad Penny, John Smoltz, Dice-K, Clay Buchholz, or a deal for Halladay? Who will be in the Red Sox rotation by the end of the month? After yesterday's game in Pawtuckett, Michael Bowden showed he should be a consideration as well. After 12 days off Bowden pitched 5 innings of no-hit ball against the Indianapolis Indians.

The Red Sox have a lot of chips as we approach the trade deadline but they also have a first place team and a system that has them ready for the future. A big trade may not be in order but the team can go either way; not a bad situation to be in.

One of 'em is going, I'm sure. Theo always seems to have his cards close to his vest. We'll see.

I'm still not sure Smoltz is the answer and Penny has overachieved. I think Dice-K will be a contributing factor down the stretch.

In New England, summer panic is as comfortable as a clam roll and mini golf at Yahmouth. Pitching depth erodes like sand in a flood, and all of a sudden, Smoltz is no good, Dice K is hurt, Papelbon is routinely touchable, and Penny is Penny. Alas, 9-0 against the Yanks and a mere one game lead.

Panic, New England. PANIC!

Yankee fans are happy because they got to win another series in their wiffle ball field.

As opposed to that cavernous stadium where hitters go to die---Fenway. The stadium that turns Lowell, Bay, and Lugo into offensive monsters. Er, maybe not Lugo...
