RAIN.....And Mike Timlin Signs For 2007
The fourth game of the 2006 World Series of Baseball was rained out. The game was called after a two hour delay and will be made up on Friday, weather permitting. The light percipitation over the area today (Thursday) will, late tonight and Friday, become heavier, with increasing winds. So while there is a window of opportunity to play baseball today, Friday looks dismal. Somehow I hope they get one in.
And Mike Timlin, the veteran Red Sox pitcher, has signed a one year $2.8 contract. If used wisely and much less than the 70 plus appearances he has become used to, he can still be valuable in the set up role. His age, however, has become a factor. This is but one little step....the Red Sox have miles to go before they are set. Their pitching questions, both starters and relievers, are far too numerous for me to go into here. Enjoy game four, weather permitting. If there is another rainout, the pitching rotations will surely change...I'm sure Detroit wants to get Rogers in there ASAP. Enjoy your Thursday!
