    Ellsbury Leading the Red Sox in Home Run Power!

    He's really going for them, just missing back to back homers in his last AB. Ellsbury has a ton of power that is just starting to be unleashed!

    Injury free he certainly should produce at the .300 avg .360 OBP 16-17 HR 'Johnny Damon' type player many here predicted a couple years back. A solid fangraphs 15 million perfomer as an OF starter.

    The fools who said he would be a AAAA outfielder better served in the NL or as a 4th OFer have been eating crow now and in the past and only the rib injury gave them some pathetic hope that the kid might not be a serious talent.

    Remember when softy said Jake would hit more HRs after his move to LF?

    I read in a couple other threads that the BasementGM is denying he is/was Softy. That's truly comical. At any rate the latest turn of events must be eating him alive (Lowry's .500 batting average, etc). Now all we need is for Lackey to turn in a no-hitter and he might resign as GM of his basement.

    Would rather see Ellsbury lead RS in obp, stolen bases, and runs scored if he hits a few HR's added bonus. But nice to see RS score some runs hopefully all the pathetic batting averages will start to rise and RS can get on a bit of a roll.

    Ellsbury is very weak in the almost all other hitting categories. That's the down size to his 2011 slugger approach.

    He has learned to deal with that inside pitch that they have been feeding him for over 2 years now. The next adjustment should be to hit that outside pitch as well as he did when he first came up. Pitchers are going to start pitching him outside again real soon if he keeps this up.

    Chicks and GM's like the HR. He knows where his bread is buttered. I have no problem with it. His average will go up. and his walks, as he drives the ball with consistent authority. He is still going to have a great year. I just don't understand why he can't bunt on base but he clearly cannot.

    Your obsession is making you absolutely unhinged.  Papi is on pace for 12 triples.  Youk is on pace for about 180 walks.  Most of the NYY fans in here have a better idea what's going on with the RS than you.

    Humor him Joe.
    He's utilizing the few assets of Sybil Softlaw.

    Others in the forum have said "Humor him". That is indeed great advice. I wish that I had come up with that idea first. Damn it, why am I always so slow.

    Joe, you are like a teenage girl. The only thing unhinged is your temper.

    Rang is at least willing to admit that the swinging for the fences approach is counter to what management has told him to do, even though Rang doesn't have a problem with doing it to try and get a big contract.

    As Joe point out without knowing it, the snap shot of today won't be anything like the final picture of year end.

    The real disservice is NESN pandering Ellsbury's 3rd homer as this power hitter who almost did the unthinkable by hitting the upper facade down the right field line. He was wailing off his back foot in his reverse pivot uppercut swinging action. The homer was down the line and wind aided by an 18 MPH down wind.

    Jim Rice is correct when he worries about this approach and it's affect on BA and OBP. But what does Jim Rice know.

    Unbelievable.
    He starts this thread to  cover his azz.
    His true motive was to show how hitting a 3-run dinger to win a game will have a negative affect on Ells.

    A true deflection of his his own ambiguity using single game criteria.

    Calling me "softy" isn't even an urban legend. He was wrong in thinking that Tito isn't a great manager, for one.

    It's not one game, Harness, it's his approach since the regular season started. Jim Rice talked about it, have you heard of Jim Rice? Hint: He's a better baseball player than Jason Varitek.

    Re: Ellsbury Leading the Red Sox in Home Run Power!

    Rice was a one-dimensional hitter who made the most out of playing at Fenway Park. Comparing an outfielder to a catcher is ridiculous on so many levels.
    A catcher is involved on every pitch. An outfielder may be involved on but a handful of plays during a game.

    No position affects a pitcher as does a catcher.

    To Baseball GM:

    Actually, I'm addressing this question to the person who is currently posting on this forum as "Baseball GM":

    Have you ever posted on this BDC board using the identity of  - Softlaw - or any variation of the Softlaw identities?


    YES  OR  NO?


    I'm asking this question so that it can be answered without any question of doubt as to precisely  whom it is directed -  just for the record.

    He has already tried to say he is not Softlaw Harness

    There is 100% no question in my mind and others here that he is

    why ask a known liar a question that will simply be answered w/ the same lie he is already trying to pass around? The intelligent here know the banned board jester Softlaw is back as 'baseballGM'

    what a coward he is

    His .182 BABIP (.316 career) has nothing to do with it I'm sure.....  While there should be a slight drop (.280 range) given his decreased LD rate thus far, his BABIP will recover nicely leading to his AVG, OBP, SLG, etc. raising as well.

    I guess he should have bunted instead hitting his fourth dinger. What is he thinking?

    Redsox-11 will be taking a few days off. He and BaseballDr, Georom, and Bosox1941 need to go to a retreat and come up with some new talking points. They shall return immediately after the next Red Sox loss.
