    Ball flying out to RF today. 



    and ortiz can't reach that RF....



    When Ortiz can't get a sac fly with a runner on third, you know youre going bad 



    frustrated watching this team play like this...we need victorino and middlebrooks back pronto.



    Said during the pre game VIC is expected back in a week or so. Set back from doing baseball activities, with the flu. Will do a few rehab games in Pawtucket

    Failure to hit with RISP is often the culprit when we lose. It's just one of those things sometimes. No reason to think that it will continue all year. 

     



    Same thing happened last year, didn't it? Didn't really get going until June

     



    yeah that's why i'm not to worried..we are only at game 12...it's kind of funny.

    gotta agree with whoever said ortiz looks outta shape this year. His bat speed looks slow too. Brutal at bat from him with an important run on 3rd and 1 out. This is why we need a legit #3 hitter to drive in runs. We cant count on ortiz or napoli. Now napoli hits a weak fly out lol. Yet again, another missed opportunity.

    This is actually a fast start for Ortiz already with 2 HR, one of them a late inning come from behond winner.  He is a slow starter, you have let him slide by the entire April.  Mid May is when he starts hitting, and peaks in October.  But you never know when he loses his eye speed, at this age it could be any day.

    This is a poor lineup for Sox, at least the Yanks have some big boppers in Beltran and Soriano.

    Soriano is a very poor RF, that was an easy catch.  Thanks though.  Need something.

    When you lack quality hitters like we do and have no speed to move guys along, ya it could easily continue all year. Guys like napoli, carp, nava, bradley, middlebrooks, gomes, pierzynski are all inconsistent flawed hitters. Ortiz is looking his age and does not look like he is in the same shape as last year. The worst thing we did was give him a contract extentsion as he now has no motivation. He got his last ring in 2013, now he will make good money his final 2 years and then likely retire. He knows this team isnt going to be world series bound and will likely struggle to make the playoffs. So as long as he shows up and puts up half decent numbers then he has done his job.

    I don't think it's a tough decision; Carp brings nothing.

    AJ looked so out of place chasing that ball tailing towards 3B.

    lol can we just get rid of carp already? how many mediocre outfielders do we need? I think we now know why the mariners got rid of him for nothing lol.

    Supposedly, Carp drew a lot of interest during the offseason.

    Every once in a while, I am right. It's known as the blind squirrel syndrome.

    "We can't count on Ortiz"  I know you're being sarcastic, otherwise that would be an all-time dumb statement. However, the Napoli part I tend to agree with.



    No there was no sarcasm intended. I am as big a david ortiz fan as anyone, but counting on a 38 yr old dh to be your #3 hitter is just plain dumb. Not only that, he is looking out of shape and his bat speed has really slowed down. Kuroda does not throw hard and ortiz popped up a pitch right down the middle, then flew out on a slow 2 seamer which he couldnt turn on.
