    well bill,

    in the case of jd crawford, you can't steal 1st base.
    if the SOX didn't have CRAWFORD, they'd be a better team.

    nice job again, theo the tool.

    Who leads the AL in sacrifice hits?  Anyone?  Bueller?  Could it be KC?

    Who leads the AL in steals?  Could it be KC?

    I think the Red Sox offense should definitely immulate one of the worst teams in baseball.

    The Red Sox lead the league in BA.  They should be able to score 1 run without having to manufacture a run.

    Because of the mindset of Francona. He is not an aggresive manager, counting on the extra base hit to win games. There wer several times over the weekend where he had runners on 1st and 2nd with no outs, and would not sacrifice. He rarely puts on the hit and run, and hitters are geared toward OBP rather than run production.

    Red Sox have been conservative on the bases for decades. One would think that oldtimer fans would be especially cognizant of this. The Red Sox strategy is dictated by Moneyball, Bill James, and the FO. Hasn't this subject been beaten into the ground in here over and over again. One would think that the answers would finally register in your brain but then again perhaps those who continue to rehash this are merely trolling.

    I agree with you - up to a point.  It's not the mindset of Francona, it's the game philosophy of the organization to not give up 1/3 of an offensive inning just to move runners 90'.  And that philosophy gets borne out by doing a cost/benefit analysis of the sacrifice.  This team plays by the numbers rather than on hunches.  (I'll never forgive Grady Little for his "hunch" BTW)

    But I'm like you.  I think there's a time and a place for everything, and when you're in a game against a pitcher who's "got it" that day you need to be able to MANUFACTURE runs. 

    The thing is....
    Were it not for an outstanding catch of Crawford's fly ball in the 9th the Sox would have WON that game 1-0.  Sometimes baseball is like that.  :-(

    As an aside here, I wish the Sox had been playing the Y's yesterday.  There's NO WAY Granderson catches that ball!

    the sox would be 9th in SB while the ''to old yanks ''

     have been leading the AL most of the yr

    Come postseason, it's not gonna go down like that. THis conservative play is fine with the injury risks so I'll buy into that. Playoffs series? There's no room to not be aggressive.

    Crawford never got on base yesterday.  Ellsbury got on once with a double and nobody (Pedroia) could drive him in. 

    Four players went hitless:  Pedroia, Youkilis, Crawford, and Varitek.  The Sox scattered 7 hits over 11 innings, but couldn't put them together.  Thus 0 for 8 with RISP.

    It sounds like you watched the game while the doom and gloomers did not. Pinstripe is just here to compare Yank and Sox stats and do his troll act. He likes to revert the thread to a pizzin contest much like his troll tag team buddy Babe.

    Just saying, the Sox have played conservative all year. Pedrioa is the only player that's been on par with past years. If teams expect the Sox to not turn it on in the post season or worse... think they don't have the weapons for it are going to be sorely mistaken. This is the fastest Red Sox team I've ever witnessed and they're not even trying yet. No doom and gloom here. Division would be nice, but this team is built for the post season.

    I wish it got here already. I'm enduring the formality is all.

    Ellsbury doing great all season. Crawford, not so much. Or not at all, really.

    Why, did they find a bunch of greenies in the clubhouse leftover from '83?  I wouldn't touch that stuff either.
