    That's why I like Bard not being the closer, he's more valuable in these types of situations. Even if pap closes this game, Bard is the one who "saved" it.

    Ah, there's DJ.  As soon as the game is under control he comes through.

    [QUOTE]I don't know, this team is near the basement in W/L record. I think the team will be fire with Lowrie in the same role he's in, SS v. most LHP starters, some 3rd when Youk DH's against some LHP starters, and some backup 2nd and first. I also think the this team would be fine without Jed Lowrie, if they traded him for a solid young RH corner outfielder.

     Long run, sure maybe they don't need a Jed Lowrie, but, at this moment in time, the Sox are dead in the water without J-Lo.

    Trading Lowrie for a RH corner OF'er makes no sense. If you need a RH bat to balance the line up, you already have Jed.....

    GM,

    Give it up!  Just admit you're wrong & move on.....  NOBODY'S buying it.  You're p!$$in in the wind.  Take a look at you shoes!  You say, "don't believe your lying eyes!"  Can't help what WE're looking at......  The kid is finally healthy, & WE're finally seeing what he's capable of!  :)

    Cue the ............  "Lies, damned lies, & GM statistics."  :)

    Drew came through in the 2007 ALCS, when the game was "in hand".

    You know I've watched every inning.  If Jenks and Paps can't hold the 3-run lead we're toast anyways at this point in time.....You have seen Paps pitch this year, right?

    I think you're stealing RSInsider's thunder but that's ok.  I do like when that happens - it makes me laugh and it's another run......

    Ellsbury must be taking Tito's criticism to heart. He's just standing there trying to get walks. That's not working either. He better go back to trying to swing for the RF fence, his OBP isn't going up just standing there.

    If it really makes the team better, okay. But who backs up the infield? Who replaces his right handed bat? I think he is really valuable right now to this team, I don't think you can get better value in return.

    Jenks and Papelbon on a long bridge span to cover. Jenks imploded in his last outing. The small ball A's should help him.

    Buck has not met expectations thus far this season

    Jenks did not implode his last outing...it was the outing BEFORE that one (2 outings ago).......

       Come on; you don't know if the game is under control or not. No run is to be dissed. Secondly JD is hitting over 300 against lefties; a lot better than Crawford, McDonald, and Cameron. Give JD credit for a great swing against a lefty!!!

    Trading Lowrie for a RH corner OF'er makes no sense. If you need a RH bat to balance the line up, you already have Jed.....

    It makes total sense, if you look beyond 2011. Scutaro is right handed, BTW, and the Red Sox have Iglesias beyond 2011, BTW.

    Pray tell who is going to be in the OF in 2011? Crawford, LH, Ellsbury LH (slap hitter splits), and ?

    The team also needs a solid young catcher to backup the Salty/Walmart bargain bin experiment.

    Just walked in on a four run lead.  Gotta love that.  I see Lowrie's had another big day.  I hope Terry rides him at least until he cools off.  For those who have maligned the starting pitching, has any one of them given up more than a run this last trip through the rotation?  Did Ells really K looking three times?  Ouch.

    OK.....After seeing about a dozen horrific swings against the lefty today, Drew finally had ONE very good swing today.

    btw, Drew's swing has never been the issue.  It's a great stroke.  If Pedey had that stroke he'd win the triple crown every year.........

    Wrong, if Pedey had that stroke he'd never have been AL MVP. He's too small for that kind of "stroke".
