    Bogey won't be as good as Drew last year, but we should be the same or better every where else.

    Sometimes the TOP PAID outfielders aren't the best defenders.

    I think we will still have a GG outfield here in the U.S.

    How about a bit less of the Yankees' philosophy and more of the Rays' when it comes to defense.

    I've heard Sizemore is looking good in ST.He's been splitting time between left and center and Farrell is saying he's going full speed in the field and on the bases. 

      Considering he hasn't played since 2011,it'll be interesting to see how he does in Thursday's first ST game.He could be a huge pick up if he's anywhere near the level he used to play at.

    I love how Bill started this thread in response to what he probably saw on Fake news today and it is turning into a legitimate conversation about our defense.

    I'm definitely interested in seeing how the youngsters do.  I have a feeling JBJ and victorino can be really special playing next to each other.

    Imagine if Sizemore stays healthy and forces himself into a starting role and JBJ hits the ground running?  Sizemore/JBJ/Victorino. You're going to have to hit the ball off the wall to get a hit in Fenway.

    Drew was playing out of his mind on defense.  Bogey does not have to be as good with the glove, just good.

    Re: Hows that DEFENSE going to look..........

    The entire left side may be a concern.  Boggy is decent but will not be as good as Drew.  Let's be realistic right now with WMB....he IS a below average defender.  I wouldn't mind seeing him shift to the outfield to be honest....I think he could be a solid LF'r and am shocked that more here do not want to see that happen.  Nava and Gomes are also a bit below average based on their range.  The rest of the defense is very strong.  I think more balls will drop in without Ells in there but I think JBJ can hold more runners on with his arm so it MIGHT be a wash (not too comfortable with it though due to inexperience but JBJ from everything I have seen or read is a plus defender.)

    Boggy does not have to be as good as drew.  Chances are that wherever Drew ends up, that he will not be as good as he was last year.

    Even the biggest jacoby fans don't think there will be much of a change in the outfield.  JBJ plays center field very well and if you have doubts, then you never saw him play.  JBJ has issues stealing but he still gets the pitcher's attention when on first.  Possibly just one ball got over JBJ's head last year.  That was when he was called up when the sox were at Yankee Stadium.  Some said that even Willie Mays wasn't getting that one.

    Middy is another one you haven't seen play live if you think he is below average.  Possibly the numbers are in your favor but he covers a lot of ground and gets the ball over to first with ease. If he should falter the sox have Garin Cecchini ready to go.

    I don't think you can.  Literally.  Like you can't. Like you woukld be unable. Softy has more vitriol and mean-spirited judgement in the index finger he types with than you have in your whole body.
