    How do you guys like Ellsbury, Crawford, Pedroia tonight? We need to ride that train. It's the best shot we have.

    Yes, and AGon is certainly turned it around.

    Add Papi to the mix, and all the talk of a "weak offense" will be made silent.

    Here are some intersting numbers (warning: some small sample sizes):
    Note: OBP used for first 2 slots, OPS the next 9.
    Player in RED represents the player with the most PAs in that slot.
    Sox Batting Slots (with 25+ PAs):
    1) Pods .417 OBP, Nava  .350, Ells  .322, Aviles .286, & Sweeney .226.
    2) Nava .370 OBP, Ciriaco .346, Craw .333, Sween .333, Pedey .320.
    3) Ortiz .952 OPS, Pedey .740, AGon .651.
    4) Ross .977, Ortiz .969, AGon .840, Salty .682, Youk .594.
    5) Ortiz 1.215, AGon .959, Midds .647, Ross .628, Youk .526.
    6) Ross 1.035, Midds .958, Salty .860, Youk .830.
    7) Salty .974, Midds .885, Nava .818, Ross .687, Sween .644, Aviles .530.
    8) DMac .925, Aviles .763, Byrd .728, Shop .671, Salty .633, 
                    Kalish .541, Nava .516
    9) Shop .950, Ciriaco .780, Aviles .657, Punto .552, Byrd .404

    It's interesting that our #6 slot is by far our best this year:
    6) .927
    4) .849
    3) .805
    5) .753
    8) .740
    2) .728
    7) .726
    1) .721
    9) .610

    OBP: our lead off slot places 6th at .317 and our 2nd slot places 4th at .318.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: CC/Lavarnway/Doubront/Cook : Nice info, but Felix is a pitcher not a thrower. He has pitched well with lower velocity for several years now, and he's just 26. I am not confident we can get Felix without paying more than what I'd be willing to give. My guess is Seattle would want at the very least 4-5 of these players: Bradley/Ranaudo or Barnes/Brentz Iglesias/Vitek or T-W Lin/Cecchini Tazawa Coyle
    Posted by moonslav59[/QUOTE]

    From the start of the 2011 season to June 12, 2012, Felix's ERA was about 3.6 and declining.  Take him out of Safeco and put him in Fenway, and that's easily over 4.  That's still nice to have, but not head and shoulders over anything we already have, and arguably not worth his salary, let alone the prospects it would take to land him.

    Seattle and other teams know that but he is still young and maybe just coming into his prime and Seattle is in rebuild mode. They also have more great pitching prospects coming up than probably any other team in baseball. 3 top 100 guys just last year, all starters. It's possible that Seattle goes into full rebuild mode at some point and even trade Felix.

    He may not cost as much as we think given their situation. No way they are winning next year.
