Pitching Pitching, Get Your Red Hot Pitching Here

There will come a point, maybe, that the Sox will need pitching, starting pitching. This year. From the Herald, "the Red Sox are now 12-13 in games started by anyone other than Curt Schilling and Josh Beckett."

***Peter here, and ouch, I thought that stat would be something like that. Or a little worse! Wake? No run support. Clement? What are we about to see on the mound tonight? Number 5 (insert DiNardo, Wells, or etc.), no clue. This will not work, and that is why Friday's start by the big lefty against none other than Scott Kazmir is so important. And not important "win this game and thats all that matters," but important in the long term, for the rest of this "promising but still missing a few parts" 2006.

I'm surprised that they are not further below .500 in those games, which is more of a tribute to the offense, the Troika (Foulke-Timlin-Papelbon), and the stellar fielding.

Pretty grim stat.
Not that I hold to much stock in the injured, aging, Wells, but maybe he'll come through and help us out this year.
