    Pitching is a Major Problem

    The new manager cannot succeed without strong, deep pitching.  The Sox need starters and relievers who are reliable.  The question is how does Madden do it? Should the Sox hire the Rays pitching coach as manager? Does he have leadership qualities as well as a talent for spotting and developing pitchers?

    They just have to replace Paps and Dice with CJ wilson and a couple of setup men, let bard close, and hope for the best.  Lackey will be the 5th starter behind Beckett, lester, wilson, and buch, with Wake #6 and long man.  Aceves is better than long man now...

    They need to get rid of the incompetent gm who acquired the "problem players". They then should look to Hickey and other proven pitching coaches in new manager search.

    totally different senerio's...the Rays have a group of young guns that all were drafted and developed in their system and they also have been aided by the MLB welfare system which pays them 30M every year to fund thier entire minor league system...

    Simple and to the point. The whole Fall/Winter discussions may end up jerking a round-robin like a cloths line in the wind. What the FO actually does may make this post quite prophetic.

    Isn't Wakefield a free agent?  I say let him walk away. 

    Also let Drew walk away too.

    I think you should post another 184 Ha's. Then you'll have one for each Wake win.

    We should send Lackey, Wakefield, and Carl Crawford to Japan for Hello Kitty and Pockie Man, and Godzilla. 

    This would be a great cultural exchange program between the U.S. and Japan.  lol

    I think you should post about the same number of Wastefield apologies. Then you would have one for each of his plethora of losses.

    The pitching is what it is.    Beckett and Lester need to slim down and become No. 1 and No. 2 again.     The Lackey that's been seen is as good as he'll ever get.    Buchholz has to prove his back is strong again.    No help ready from the farm system.     Wakefield will be back as the No. 5 pitcher in the rotation.

    If Wakefield is the no 5 pitcher next season, the Red Sox  pitching will be in trouble again.  He is too old to be a reliable  starting pitcher.  He is ok as if he has an occasional start or as a member of the bullpen as long-relief.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Pitching is a Major Problem : a loser? I wouldn't call a guy who has pitched in the major leagues as long as Wake has a loser. I also wouldn't call a guy who is generous with his time and money a loser. I also wouldn't call a guy who sacrificed an ALCS start in 2004 in order to save the bullpen which led to THE comeback a loser. Now you can say he is done, that he is no longer effective and the Sox should not re-sign him...but to call him a loser is pretty stupid. Now I know saying stupid things on this forum is your thing and is why you get picked on all the time on this board (reverse pivot)...but you have a better chance of finding a loser by looking in your mirror then looking in the direction of Tim Wakefield

    That's precisely why he looks to Wake...
