The last time the Angels were in Fenway, they were watching another Manny bomb sail into the dark night ...

Yikes, another missed start for Beckett this one due to a stiff neck?

Pauley to start.

Why does this team have stiff neck-itis. Can we get the Jordan's sleep techs to find some better pillows for these guys?

At least the Thurston era has ended.

I believe Beckett was also mentioned as having been struck down by the same flu like symptoms that sidelined Varitek yesterday....

GARLAND
not sure what to make of this guy. He's a career 44% GB pitcher; but in '07, he dipped to 39%; now in 08, he's up to 54%. Yet despite giving up fewer ground balls last year, and despite a terrible July (6.37 ERA), he was able to post a near-career low SLG of .414. Now it's certainly possible that it was just luck, since his HR/FB% was a career low 7% (vs nearly 11% career average).

Then, in 4 starts this season, he has 3 strikeouts. That ties him for 2nd to last (for pitchers with more than 10 IP this season), ahead of Brian Bass but tied with Chan Ho Park and Chris Sampson.

Split-wise, he's got a normal LH/RH platoon, and he's good the first time through the order, and after that the long balls start coming. But overall, for a 28 year old with nearly 1500 IP in the majors, he usually gets the job done.

Garland's last start against Kansas City displayed his 4-pitch repertoire clearly enough (clockwise from L: change, FB, slider, curve). Velocity on the fastball ranged from 89 to 93 mph, and on the changeup from 78 to 82.

Another SP bites the dust.

According to Rotoworld Matsuzaka is out tonight due to illness.

Lester goes on short rest.

Have you followed Bartolo Colon at all over the past month?
