Bloody Sox Laundry - 8/26/09

Red Sox radio broadcasts return to WEEI - Extra Bases

And out of market listeners still have to pay the MLB for the broadcasts. *sigh*

Lowrie homers again for Pawtucket - Projo Sox Blog

Now, minor league radio is free - too bad I didn't think to listen in for Jed's rehab so far.

After the jump, a current Sox pitcher has us concerned, a former Sox pitcher speaks his mind (again), and a once-possible blockbuster trade pitcher's injury doesn't surprise the Sox.

Farrell says Beckett's problems are mechanical, not physical - Projo Sox Blog

Yay - now fix it. Also, score one for Pitch F/X - his curve wasn't dropping like it should have been.

A bit late, but Curt spreads his wisdom again.

Report: Red Sox were worried about Santana's elbow - Projo Sox Blog

Well, that would've sucked. Good thing we didn't make that deal, eh? Lester's looking like our ace for the near future, Ells should be in jail for this thievery, and Jed's blazing the comeback trail.

Is elevating a starting pitcher’s pitch count a GOOD thing? - Inside The Book

You hear all the time about how if a team can be patient and cause a starting pitcher to have a high pitch count, that it is a good thing (for the batting team). Or in general, if the starting pitcher has a high pitch count and the bullpen has to come in early, that it is a bad thing for the pitching team.

I have always wondered if these are true, and I am not sure that they are.

Always interesting to rethink common sense.

Drop links in the comments and discuss. Again, congrats to Ells - that's a lot of running.
