this guy's the real deal. live in bmore and got to see him last 2 days versus NATS. saw him in that AB against strasburg.. threw him a 97mph fastballl on the outside black on 3-2 after buzzing him inside.. stanton adjusts on the fly and goes the other way for a 440 foot bomb to blow him outta there.
today in a 0-1 game, waits til bottom of ninth against the stud closa sariano.. first pitch, he comes up and in, second pitch throws a strike away on a slider. on 1-1 he comes back with another high fastball and boommm.. stanton is all over it roseann barr on a big mac. score tied! this guy is a total stud. very smart with great power to all fields. you let ells go, let shane go to cf and put stant in right.. u keep gomes/nav in left.. send jbj/boegarts and webster if u must in a package!
First, I needed a translater to read your ramblings.
Secondly, let me get this right. You'd send three of our top prospects for a player who has been injury prone this year and last when we're just about to see the Sox reap the harvest of all of these prospects and on top of that you'd just let Ells go when he's fnally back to the way he's capable of playing. Sorry but I couldn't disagree more. Just glad your not the GM.
Hetch, you and I are in exactly the same place on this topic. The plan for this team is exactly on schedule. This year is only a very pleasant bump in the road.
I'm looking for a year like this one NEXT year and for things to get better after that. We've got some very good players who are blocked and at the same time we've got some holes appearing. Within a year or two we're going to be able to use those blocked players to trade to fill the holes, and those that can't be filled with trades are going to be able to be filled through FA because of the low salaries we're going to be paying our "new regulars".
The future for this team is very bright. This is where we want to be. Let's not go screwing this up just because we got greedy in 2013.
A few of our comrades wanted to go crazy and get one or both Uptons, neither of which I've ever cared to see in a Sox iniform. Justin's having a fair year but hitting only .255 with 100 strike outs in only 329 at bats, and BJ is just beyond awful this year.
