    How about starting a runner

    Bobby V is starting to look like Tito of last year.  Crawford and Ellsbury on 2 x each tonight yet no attempts to run.  Result--- Double Play -- Double play.  USE THESE GUYS CORRECTLY.  This drives me nuts.  Put them in motion and get a clue.

    GEOROM AND RASO...THE PREVIOUS POSTERS ARE ENTIRELY
    CORRECT.  IT IS STARTLING, TO SAY THE LEAST, THAT IN TWO
    SITUATIONS THIS EVENING, WHEN IT WAS VERY EVIDENT THAT
    IT WOULD BE A GAME DECIDED BY A RUN OR TWO, THAT 
    BOBBY V LET PEDROIA HIT AWAY, WHEN A SACRIFICE COULD
    HAVE MEANT A RUN.  HE MUST BE AFRAID TO GIVE A BUNT
    ORDER TO PEDROIA.  IT COULD BE PEDROIA IS THE REAL
    MANAGER. THAT'S WHAT THE DECISIONS SAID. THE TAIL IS
    WAGGING THE DOG. PLAIN AND SIMPLE. ANOTHER POINT I
    WOULD LIKE TO MAKE IS THAT THE SOX SHOULD TRY TO GRAB
    VICTORINO IF HE IS AVAILABLE AT ANY COST BECAUSE CODY
    ROSS IS PITIFUL. HE HAS SLOWED DOWN NOW AT THIS
    POINT OF THE SEASON, AND CODY IS AN AUTOMATIC OUT.
    WE CANNOT AFFORD TO SLOT THIS GUY IN THE MIDDLE OF
    THE LINEUP.  HE WILL KILL ANY RALLY. EVEN HIS SINGLE
    SHOULD HAVE BEEN EASILY CAUGHT.

    Re: How about starting a runner

     JUST TO REPEAT....TWO OF THE WEAK SPOTS IN THE LINEUP 
    ARE SALTALAMACCHIA AND ROSS.  WITH SALTY, IT'S ALL OR
    NOTHING. MOST OF THE TIME, ITS A STRIKEOUT OR A POPUP.
    ROSS IS PITIFUL.  IF VICTORINO IS AVAILABLE, THE SOX
    SHOULD GO OUT AND GET HIM QUICKLY. HE WOULD BE A
    TERRIFIC UPGRADE IN THE LINEUP IF CRAWFORD CANNOT
    PLAY THE SEASON OUT...AND WITH SHANE AND ELLSBURY
    AT THE TOP OF THE LINEUP, YOU HAVE A DEADLY DUO THERE
    AND THEN YOU HAVE PAPI, AGON, AND PEDROIA TO FOLLOW.
    MIDDLEBROOKS AND LAVARNWAY COULD ROUND IT OUT.,
    ALONG WITH CIRIACO AND PODSEDNIK.

    Re: How about starting a runner

    I was at the game and saying the same thing to my brother.  2 outs and CC on 1st, and you don't run him?

    Ellsbury on 1st, no out, a weak hitter up, and you don't sacrifice?

    Twice?

    BV is gone, absolutely gone.  Think Peter Sellers in 'Being There'.
