In case you missed it, the first opportunity for a second-guess capable of eating up 48 hours of valuable radio broadcast time came last night when Terry Francona brought Manny Delcarmen into a tie-game and Delcarmen promptly gave up a double off the very top of the wall to Nick Swisher. Delcarmen got out of the inning and heads, for the moment, went unexploded.

“Still too early, but I share the concern. Would love to see the eventual second unit guys – Baby, Jeff Green, Arroyo, West and probably Kristic – get to play together. Rondo looks exhausted and it would be helpful if Doc could cut back his minutes. Also, I strongly suspect there were concerns that Perk was not the same player anymore.”
“Packer was serious about hoops. I knew it was a big game when Musberger/Nantz would call a game with Packer. He was old school so he took delight in fundamentals such as a pick/roll or boxing out a rebounder. I'm still a young kid, but I enjoyed his analysis.”
