    Does Softy stage himself? Is the Pope Catholic? Does a bear sh-it in the woods? Softlaw is here to annoy others and he laughs at his keyboard 24/7. Why others can't see this is beyond my comprehension. Even Harness knows this but Harness considers Softy to be a unifying target on the forum. Unifying is like a thousand flies landing on a piece of cow sh-it in the field. Softlaw condones it since his entire existence revolves around this BDC forum. A populated forum is better than a good forum in his opinion.

    I can't begin to think like Softy, in either the troll concept or just the narcissistic pain in the rear approach. I can't even begin to go either place. I don't understand either of them.

    Only you would bring the Pope and a bear defecating in the same paragraph.

    Not that you deserve an explanation, but my allusion to Softy as a
    unifying force refers to common disdain for him instead of posters being at our own throats.

    Come to think of it, you would also suffice.

    Getting back to baseball, while Weiland didn't draw rave reviews from the board overall, I was impressed with him. He had one poor inning where two balls were hit well off him. Scutaro prolonged it. Scut needs some down time when Lowrie returns. I'm talking DL and use Navarro with Lowrie at SS.

    Weiland has a nice easy delivery and good movement. He's unpolished but I can see how he can really be tough on righties with some experience. He pitched in the Cape Cod League just a few years ago.

    88 of 89 games played

    5K, your list was a nice diversion with this glaring omission:

    Ellsbury v. LHP   BA .255 OBP .328 SLG .377  7 SB CS 1

    Crawford v. LHP BA .151 OBP .275 SLG .267   0 SB CS 3

    Kemp v. LHP  BA .338  OBP  .484  SLG  .592   8 SB CS 1

    Since the Red Sox are married to Crawford, without a pre-nup, makes sense to go after Kemp with Ellsbury.

    Note: Small sample, but:

    Reddick v. LHP  BA .667 OBP .692 SLG .917

    Reddick would be quite capable in CF, and has an outstanding swing with good bat speed. Even if his OBP falls to around .300:

    Reddick and Drew and Kemp is far superior to Reddick and Drew and Ellsbury

    Why invest 12 to 14M in Ellsbury, if it could be invested in a long term extension for Kemp? Obviously, that makes no sense with Crawford, Reddick and Kalish on the books.

     
    While even I must admit that Kemp is better than Ells, you made one glaring mistake. How could you play Drew every day instead of Crawford?

    Same on me, back to ignore billbywhoever and his Mayberry friend.

    Yes, I just commented similar on another thread.
    What's really nerve-wracking is when such identities can't agree on anything.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: A Realistic Look at 2011: Part III : The biggest problem with most CERA bashers is that they don't understand it's proper usage. It is a very limited and narrow use when used the right way. It can't be used effectively with every team, since many teams do not allow large enough sample sizes with the sdame pitchers and both catchers. When teams do have 2 catchers with large enough sample sizes, there is almost always a consistent disparity... the same way there is almost always a constent disparity between AGon's BA and Scutaro's.

     Just saying, in 2009, Scutaro batted .282 and Gonzo batted .277...

    Nuts, that proves how deceptively useless batting average is as a tool for judging baseball performance. And to think that for many years that was one of the most important things we looked at.

    I wonder at what level the RedSox will resume playing.
    Will it revert back to ST mode?

    back from a wonderful time in Bar Harbor. My wife doesn't know I planned it around the Sox off days and thinks I made a big sacrifice. Ignorance is bliss sometimes, I guess.

    Thanks to Burrito for playing sheriff on this thread.

    Nice to see the same old clown now using small 2011 splits vs LHPs to find a straw of negativity in "Jake's" first half of the season. This is the same clown who bashed me for using 3 season's worth of splits on Papi. Now, suddenly the career numbers vs LHPs are not important. Now, suddenly Kemp's attitude and mental lapses are to be forgotten. Now, suddenly we are to look at only Kemp's numbers in 2011, not his career numbers and splits.

    I missed the Sox banter, and hope we can still keep it "real".

    A lot depends on the health of Lester, Beckett & Buch.

    I see our hitting to continue on the post April pace.

    It will be interesting to see if they give Drew or Reddick a shot to cover us at DH, or if it will be McDonald or someone else. I know they aren't going to call up Lavarnway yet. I would think that this is Drew's last chance or they might make a trade. If Papi appeals it might delay things long enough to get Crawford back.

    I think we'll see Reddick vs RHPs and DMac vs LHPs if Papi doesn't appeal.

    Disagree. The true sacrifice would have been to schedule Bar Harbor when the Sox played the interleague games.
    You may have cost them the division!
