    like i said yesterday danny, i think thats why crawford was successful batting second. just got a hit to get on base and reek havoc on the bases. batting in the the heart of the linup puts pressure to comeup with the big hit.

    j, both second or 9th are ideal spots for CC. I agree. It's not like he can't help the team still. But putting him in a traditional RBI spot like 5th,6th is just...well....dumb

    J, it's all the misconception that CC is the same guy he was in Tampa....Apparently he is far from it. So you make adjustments according to his production, or what he does for the team (or doesn't do). He's paid 142 mil for several years. That doesn't give him an automatic spot in the middle of the lineup. But obviously it means they will play him every chance they can get, and it should be in the 2nd or 9th spots.

    I'd try 2nd first danny. he has a comfort level there and wont feel its a demotion, which would just add more pressure. honestly, i think its just more a case of being an off year, magnified because its the first year in Bostin and the big contract. still too soon to say IMO

    I agree that the 6 spot should be a run producer, but I do not like Crawford in the 2 or 9 hole...I think 7 would be better. In the 2 or 9 hole, with the guys coming up, he will be reluctant to use his speed, in the 7 hole with Tek/Salty and Scutaro coming up, he could run at will.

    Lester is throwing way too many pitches again today....nibbling and getting deep into counts, 4 innings, 80 pitches when you have given up just 2 hits and 1 walk is terrible. This was an issue I thought he had overcome since it early years with us, but this year he has been doing it alot.

    Lester isn't "nibbling". Lest lives and dies by painting the corners of the strikezone. When his game isn't 100%, he doesn't hit those corners every pitch and his pitch count inflates. Lester needs to get his A game together to start going deep into games again, personally with a day-nighter tonight, Lester going 7 innings in the first game would be huge, if I'm Francona I give him a 120 PC.

    He sure is shutting them down, hard to criticize Lester.

    Shields ball to strike ratio is better, but his pitch count is almost as high.

    With the way Ells is hitting I'm wondering if the lineup should go 

    Pedey 
    Ellsbury

    instead of 

    Ellsbury 
    Pedey

    just a though...

    This switch-a-roo idea made even more interesting when you consider that, as ells has morphed into a power hitter, Pedey has also taken over the best baserunner/stealer mantle for this club.
