    CRAIG or MidDellBrooks, more likely for career salvation?

    no both guys r on this team's roster to start next season or at spring training. craig looks atrocious with the automatic K or 0-2 counts in every AB and total lack of basic adjustments. WMB is clearly a source of mass disappointment, very little quality ABs.. not buying the injury thing. at this point, they both need a change od scenery. insanity is doing the same thing over and over. if I had to pick, would go with craig for he did it in more ABs and had a higher ceiling.. again, it just wont b at fenway. both guys need to go somewhere with less profile like Arizona, Pittsburgh or even the mets.

    It just goes to show how mind over matter can impact your performance.

    Not making excuses for anyone but if Craig's ankle is still impacting him why wait another month to have it surgically repaired. Get it done now and spend the extra month rehabbing. He lands on the left foot every time he steps into a pitch and pivots on it--try it yourself--and think of Alan Craig wearing the Sombrero as WMB did Tues. night.

    WMB---shut him down at the plate and use him on defense. Is Sox Medical Staff sure his wrist is healthy? They want him to play Winter Ball--good idea--see if he is capable of swinging the bat pain free.

    Maybe they both need glasses. When you swing at balls a foot off the plate, and let down=the=middle fastballs sail by, it's not the swing.

    Given where Middlebrooks is at, do you think shoving him out there a late inning defensive replacement will do any good? Let him play for Pawtucket for the playoffs. The problem with that? They don't want him as they want to win the IL Championship.

    It's not necessarily the vision either.  Some of is just falling behind in the count, guessing wrong, just generally getting eaten up by the pitchers.

    Craig has several years experience of not only hitting MLB pitching but hitting it well.  WMB has a couple months and after pitchers made adjustments to him he has failed ever since.


    This would be like putting David Ortiz next to WMB after he had a down year.


    Craig is the obvious answer.

    I thought Craig and Middlebrooks look alike.
