Heh, love having the audio going of the game at work when Sox fans come into the library.

If Ozzie was still managing do you think we'd go from the Pirahna's to the Blind Squirrels.

Diamond as far as I can tell... Throws a 4 seamer... curve and change up... That's it...

With a name like Diamond... He needs to cut that fastball... He'd have a Diamond Cutter.

OK, I'm following gameday remotely. Was that a good throw, or a poor decision to send Doumit home (or both)?

Do our third base coaches know anything about baseball: situations -- outs, speed of runner, necessity of taking chance, outs and speed of runner, and outs and no speed running?

C'mon.

Doumit was taken by surprise by the throw home. He didn't slide and made no effort to jar the catcher, nearly tripping over his leg. He looked back to Morneau (on deck) who obviously missed telling him to slide or brace himself. There was plenty of dumb to go around.

It was a great throw... That's the only way he got out...

Doumit didn't slide and I assume that he didn't know that he had to. He looked over at Morneau after he collided with the catcher... I assume he was thinking where were you...

Its the on deck hitters responsibility to head toward the plate to let the runner know if he should slide or not at home.

I hope Morneau isn't letting himself get distracted (lack of HRs, no contract talks, etc).

I think the decision to send him home was OK... It took a fantastic throw... Viciedo had to range to his left to get the ball and he was in deep left.

That's OK. Add a little cheese, a little butter, it should cook up just fine.

The outfielder was relatively deep in the outfield when he fielded the ball and made a great throw. I think it was a bad decision to send Doumit anyway because there were no outs and Doumit isn't known for his speed. If there were one or two outs, I would have liked the decision more.

I don't know how accurate the pitchtrak on Gameday is, but each of those first 3 balls to Dunn looked to be in the zone - and all were called balls. No low strikes today?
