    Maybe he should catch or pitch every game for crying out loud,after all he is a professional baseball player.

    The first time a flyball is hit his way and he totally butchers it.

    That will be the second sign of the apocalypse.

    They tried Youkilis in leftfield once. It was not pretty.

    People tend to remember that stuff.

    Back the good old days of hockey the teams used to designate a position player as "3rd goalie" just in case of injury. I never actually remember any of these 4th liners actually donning the goalie pads and trying to play a position they had no clue about. Teams usually figured they were better off with the goalie who had the least serious injury continuing...they had a better chance that way at least his intincts could carry him through.

    Actually, Youk has not been bad in the outfield.   Over the last five years, he has appeared in 22 games (19 started), mostly in LF (two in RF).  Out of 44 total chances, he has had 39 PO, 4 Assists and 1 error.  I'll take that.

    That said, those who have played baseball know that it's a different animal in the outfield although probably an easier transition for an infielder to make than the other way.  Gonzalez is a very good infielder and has a better than average arm for a first baseman.  A few rounds of fielding practice ought to tell Francona the story.  Let's wait and see.

    I agree with the OP. If it keeps McDonald or Cameron out of the lineup, put him out there. Lest you forget McDonald KILLED the Sox last night. Not to mention Cameron's less than stellar defense.

    Not bad?

    Just because Youkilis was only charged with one error in the outfield means nothing.

    His range was bloody awful, he had no clue how to play the caroms off the wall, he has no speed. All in all he looked like a fish out of water.

    22 games , 44 chances. That is 2 chances per game. How many "chances" did he not have because the official scorer ruled a ball a hit because he figured the slow footed Youkilis has no chance to reach the ball? Fielding is all about "range" not "# of errors" ...they can't charge you with an error on a ball that you don't get anywhere near. A fielder with range will take basehits away, sometimes a fielder with more range actually will have more errors than a player with less range....you can't measure fielding by percentage only.

    Nor can we only rely on your memory (with all due respect).

    To bad Crawford isn't healthy and out there.  Him and Ellsbury can cover a lot of ground on their own.   In this way, they could put Gonzalez out in RF for only the most routine of flyouts.  No diving for catches.  Leave the rest of the field for the other 2 guys.  Not sure if McDonald, or a now slower Cameron, would be able to pull that off.  It's a tough call.

    mojo1120 - If you were to go to an amusement park and their was a ride their that was very good, fun, etc.   But, at the end of the ride you knew it was going to derail and everyone on the ride was going to die.  Would you still go on it?

    well, jaycoach...this is not ancient history.

    So if you can't remember things from only about 5 years ago, what can I say?
     
    Perhaps you didn't watch the games?

    Perhaps you need lessons on how to improve memory?

    Youkilis, like Gonzalez, is a slow runner. These players are suited to positions like corner infield or catcher. Most other positions require some kind of foot speed and range, Youk and Gonzo have very little of either.

    Youkilis in LF was definitely not pretty, and something I hope we never have to see again.

    Morons! Try to pay attention. Nobody is talking about Youk to the outfield. The only discussion is Gonzalez to right field. That is the only discussion. Try to focus. Gonzalez goes to right field for a couple games. He's not gonna suddenly die because he isn't playing first. Papi goes to first. Cameron, thank God, is out of the lineup. It's a win win all around.

    Although I don't know much of the Bible in detail, I don't think it clearly states anything about Adrian Gonzalez playing rightfield leading to the apocalypse.  Then again, the Bible seems vague and contradictory about a lot of things, but I'm sure one could find a parable that fits the situation depending upon whether it suits your spin on things or not.  

    Perhaps sinceyaz is more schooled in these matters, being a pastor and all.  Given it's a Biblical matter, Softy (betterred...) will have something to add to the discussion as well, but I think his interpretation will be applied to Tim Wastefield (as he call him) or homosexual behavior.

    "You'd think that was the case the way some people talk. For crying out loud, the man is a professional baseball player - put him in right field and get Ortiz into the lineup. "

    No, the way some people talk, one would think dropping a few games to San diego and Pitt was a sign of the apocalypse.

    Moving Gonzalez to RF on the other hand, is sheer ignorance...
