    Weakling? You mean like his performance in the '07 PS, when it counts the most? I'm a firm believer that the PS separates the men from the boys. A few examples: Bad PS types - Swisher, Teixiera, ARod (except for '09), Hoffman, Benitez, Nathan Good PS types - El Duque, J. Morris, Mantle, Ruth (P & H), Gehrig, DiMaggio, Ford, Richardson, Jeter, Rivera, L. Gomez, Snider, Gibson, Koufax, Podres, Burdette, Mathewson, RJax, Lyle, Schilling, Ortiz, Damon, Ellsbury, Beltran

    I would add:

    Good PS Dave Henderson .946 OPS in 36 PS games
    Bad PS Jeff Bagwell .685 OPS in 33 PS games

    OK. Henderson was great. I also forgot Berra & Henrich. There's a bunch more.

    Bagwell surprises me.
    Swisher is tough to pitch to because he has a good eye.
    He makes pitchers work. That means his outs are still quality outs, IMO.

    Why is NY playing so well lately? Is it inter-league competition?
    They are showing the kind of depth many thought they'd lack.

    Then there's Jim Leyritz.  Only a .213 BA in postseason, but 8 HRs in 72 PA for an OPS of .926.  And some of those dingers were huge game and momentum changers.

    The Crawford signing allowed the team a speed tandem other GM's dream about. When CRAWBURY clicks, the team is 32-13.

    The team is under .500 when Crawbust "clicks".

    Other GM's dream about paying 23 million for a .275 OBP and two guys who are pitiful against LHP and enjoy long DL stints.

    Harness, I said Bellsbury will be traded before the 2012 season, years ago. You think not?

    How long ago did you say that AGon would be playing for San Diego, this spring?

    Anyone who believes trading unsigned Ellsbury and a package of cheap young talent for unsigned Kemp is a bad move needs to move to Boston.

    The team is 32-13 when CRAWBURY clicks, fool. See May/June until Crawford went down to injury.

    Anybody believing the Dodgers would trade for Jake's arbitration years needs a trip to the Orient.

    Trading Ellsbury is always a possibility but not likely.  It would take someone Theo really covits like J. Upton to even consider it.

    Red Sox are under .500 when Crawburst clicks.

    Kemp's arbitration is shorter Harness, so you don't have a clue. AGon is still in San Diego, according to your drunken mind.

    Reddick would not even have been called up if it were not for Ryan Kalish's shoulder injury.....the Sox taught Kalish much higher than Reddick.....lets not forget that last season Darnell McDonald and Daniel Nava were making the same noise and where are they today???

    Hey I like Elles and I prefer we have both - as ultimately we are stuck with Crawford. It will never happen though... no way. Over the winter I stated repeatedly that Elles game would be elevated in 2011 by Crawfords presence.  He knows he has to excel because the upgraded version (Crawford) put him on the spot, time to shine. He is having his best season in part because he knew he could not play like a weakling anymore.  No bashing here just an observation from the obvious.

    Respectfully one has nothing to do with the other...we'll never know what type of numbers Ell's could have posted last year had he stayed healthy? But, if you look at his career path before hurting himself, all of his numbers from 2008 increased in 2009 and likely would have last year too. Which can be attributed to his working on his approach at the plate. Recognizing the pitch on the inner half and starting his swing earlier and trying to hit the outside of baseball, out in front of the plate vs letting the ball travel, hitting the inside of the ball. What we're seeing from Ellsbury is a natural progression for young hitters. Working on and fixing holes in your swing..it's realy as simple as that, he's always had the tools, like all young players, he simply needed to refine them...

    In 2008 his first, as an everyday player, he had trouble with the fastball up and in and out over the plate. When he came up, he was primarity an opposite field hitter and becasue of his inside out stroke, pitcher's challenged him up in zone. He had trouble catching up to it and got jammed quite a bit...In the offseason of 2008 he worked on his stroke and by mid season 2009 started turning on the ball and driving it to right, once he closed the hole, pitchers no longer were "challenging" him with fastballs up and on the inner half. Thus we've seen an incremental increase in his power and OBP numbers. My guess is that if healthy last year he'd have continued what was a upward arc in his numbers year over year...

    I don't disagree that Kalish might well have been called up before Reddick. What we also don't know is the motives behind the call up. They could well be show casing him (trade) or rewarding him for buying in to the program and working on his plate disipline and showing positive results in Pawtucket...

    Reddick is a very toolsy player with pop and is still only 24, so it's not like the kids a 10 year journeyman minor leaguer, who's keeping a spot warm for a younger prospect. The question with Reddick is not if he's ready to play at this level, rather is he an everyday player or better? The jury is still out.... 

    End of the day, if he continues to refine his approach at the plate and treats every at bat like it's his last and makes the opposing pitcher throw strikes. He could well be an impact hitter or at minimum a 25 homer .280 type guy...Defensively he's already better than many in the game, runs like a deer, plays all three outfield positions and the kid has a gun!

    WOW, it is nice to see (after a bit away) that there is still the incestual infighting going on in this forum....  GOOD JOB GUYS.... I knew you guys could stay with the traditional way of doing things.... Now grow a pair, meet on a corner and kill each other.

    That way the rest of us can just sit here and discuss the team, and other baseball related things without watching you two bozos attack each other and pull each other's hair.....

    Re: Has Josh Reddick Era Begun?

    Sorry but there will be no Josh Reddick era. He will play until Drew hopefully turns it around (but I'm not holding my breath). He was hitting about .230 in triple A. He obviously won't continue at this pace but he wont even continue at a .300 pace, that just wouldn't make sense. Remember in 09 when he came up and did really well for a few weeks, then pitchers figured him out, and he fell off the wagon? This is happening now, when pitchers figure him out, we can expect him to start performing at the level he showed this year, which is .230 in AAA. How well will he do in the MLB if he was hitting .230 in AAA? He's trade bait for this offseason. They won't trade him at the deadline because of how well he's doing now, but Kalish is the RF of the future for the Red Sox.

    Kemp is under control until 2013. Wrong again.

    Ellsbury
    Lowrie or Hassan or Middlebrooks (2 of the 3 if Dodgers get a better offer)
    Doubrant or Weiland 

    Hardly "giving up the farm. 

    Reddick looks adequate, even at lower OBP and BA, with better bat speed than Ellsbury and better defensive ability. With Kalish as more depth, trade for Kemp and make this team better now and in the future. Fix Theo's Crawford mistake, and trade Ellsbury before it's too late! 

    Navy is fine as the UIF/5th OF'er, with Drew as the 4th OF'er. 

    Put Mac through waivers and try and park him in AAA.

    Get rid of Lowrie and Ellsbury, and send them back to the left coast.

    No way to get a good pitcher and net value. Trading for Kemp is the ob  vious move to make this team better now and in the future. No extension for Ellsbury or FA contract, Crawford is a ward of the Red Sox. No need for tweedle dee and dum. Sell Ellsbury's 2.5 years of arbitration to the Dodgers, and get a young star RH OF'er, now! 

    Blow by the Yankees, with Kemp, not Crawbust!

    He may be ready for regular platoon work or perhaps a bit more, but "eras" are reserved for historical figures like Prince Metternich of the Austrian Empire or at least major impact players that define a team.

    And the earth is flat - just like your rants. How's the Cam/Kalish platoon thing working?
    Did Theo pursue CC?
    Did FLA trade Hanly for Jake? Is Jake in San Diego? Or is that still 50/50?

    What makes you think the Dodgers will retain Kemp as he gets more expensive?
    The same logic that veers them away from Kemp also applies to Jake, you fool.

    Take a breathalyzer, then start 10 more Kemp for Jake threads.

    Reddick has a long way to go before he can have an " era."  He has shown potential , but let's not go overboard.  As for trading Ellsbury, how dumb can you be?
