    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh this AAA line-up...

    Road trip thus far:
    Four games in KC:
    4 runs
    7 runs
    4 runs
    6 runs

    2 games so far in TX:
    0 runs
    11 runs

    Total: 32 Runs in 6 games
    60 H - 207 AB  .290 BA on the road.

    Overall team BA on the road (with Youk/Ells/Papi healthy): .255
    My, my, my - that's some "AAA pathetic embarrassing line-up".

    Guess which player has the best OPS over the last two weeks?

    They could score 100 runs in 2 games I would still like to see Crawford moved to the #2 hole until Youk returns. I think, wait let me think about it some more, I'll readress once I have the benefit of hindsight.

    Re: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh this AAA line-up...

    Tito doesn't generally go for  back-to-back-to back lefties at the top of the line-up.
    Crawford is hitting .217 in 6 games batting 2nd...likely vs. RH starters.
    Overall, he's hitting .280 vs. RH starters.
    He's hitting .300 batting 6th, vs. all pitching.
    He's batting .282 in the 7th slot, vs. all pitching.
    Of course, this is just doing normal research via hindsight.

    Re: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh this AAA line-up...

    I'm kind of with Burrito on this one. Granted Crawford's not an ideal #2 hitter with his low OBP, but the thought of Ells and Crawford on 1st and 2nd with Gonzo at the plate makes me salivate.

    Re: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh this AAA line-up...

    3 lefty hitters at the top of a line-up can easily be compromised by a lefty at an intricate part of the game. Besides, Pedey is one of the best #2 hitters in the game.

    Interesting note on Crawford: He's listed at 6'2"  215 lbs. One would never think it given his ability to accelerate around the bases.

    Posted by harness[/QUOTE]That's undoubtedly what Francona is thinking. Maybe Pedey could hit 3rd with Gonzo cleaning up.

    Last we checked Pedey is the clean-up hitter. Until Youk comes back it makes sense to go along with what I said.

    Depending on how Youk or Ortiz are swinging the bat, especially with Youk, maybe the line-up will have to be adjusted. Regardless of results it jsut seems wrong that MacDonald is batting second when you have Crawford. Drew was treated the same way over the years and every time he was kept high in the order he seemd to do better. It might be what Carl needs.

    Re: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh this AAA line-up...

    Mac has the highest OPS of any player over the last two weeks.
    Crawford is one of the most aggressive hitters on the club. His mentality may change hitting in a slot where OBP is deemed more important.
    Pedey's approach sure did when he hit lead-off.

    Crawford makes a pretty good hitter in the 9-hole

    Oh, against RH's

    against LH's he needs to ride pine

    Great thread harness.

    I guess we shouldn't be too mad at the crybabies on the board. Everytime they whine about D-Mac or Scutaro or something like that, they have a big game.

    Like that pathetic thread where some brain-deficient posters actually thought the Sox should have started Ortiz over Lavarnway.

    Re: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh this AAA line-up...

    Well Roy, It's another 11 spot and counting. Mac again stays hot. Papi has a nice game off the layoff. AAA line-up helped team go 4-2 on the road.
    Papi/Jake return to make it stronger. Texas suddenly isn't the giant I feared should the RedSox cop the WC.

    As Jack Warden would repeatedly say in HEAVEN CAN WAIT:

    "Looking good".

    Crawford OBp might reach .300 before season end. Now that's 20M of great 2011 value.

    I like it that Crawford had a great game. I'd like it even more if he'd agree to take half his contract and use it to get Kemp.
