    It went the same way of any other similar post the circular file.  It still amazes me when guys hit a rough patch how "fans" throw them under the bus just like Bill has tried with Ortiz.

    Excuse me, critism on Napoli was just and valuable, first got him out 5th spot in line up, then he has been more productive platooning... He had a fine weekend series, lets hope and pray he keeps on...Same with Lester, he was awful for a long spell, , but now he has pitched great in last two outings...such is baseball and Life...

    What a minute?  Valuable?  Are you saying that the criticism on this board got the Red Sox to change how they played him?  Seriouisly?  You really think the coaching staff comes here for advice on how to run the team?

    Should have answered the paragraph abover earlier, but it passed me by, found it today as part of Sunday leisure... Comments on these or any boards are not a exclusive brand, they form part of a much larger context, which includes blogs, panels like The Baseball Show, and hundreds  of media channels that all together form The Voice of the Fan, which all baseball people listen to... Or was not Napoli shortcomings at due moment tweeted around the world? ... How did Nap overcome his whiffing spree: out of 5th slot, hitting seventh and platooning?... go sox!

    are you assuming that players only play better when they are dropped in the order?  As i have explained 100x, no matter what the movie alluded to, there is no voodoo in BB.  Players get hot, and players get cold, and players get hot and players get cold.  And it has been that way since the beginning of time.

    And sometimes coaches pick stuff up.  And sometimes no one knows how players get into slumps, and how they got out.  I've played long enough to have had this happen to me several times.  About the only thing we know is that players generally trend towards their historic norms.

    It is true players get hot and cold. But many times psycology plays huge part in a slump, as former player u ought to know this... So any kind of logical change in every day habits do wonders...I have seen players  that hit well in lower part of lineup, that when upgraded as third or cleanup just bust... And viceversa...

    Napoli has always been a very streaky hitter. More so than the norm. That will probably continue.

    The good.

    And the bad.
