    Thanks Pesky.  I haven't even heard this kid's name.  Will keep tabs now.

    I haven't heard of him before. With Ell's future in question, and the current OF situation, it's nice to know there's some potential down on the farm.

    Yeah, he's definitely one to watch among the MiLB players.  Anyone interested in an ongoing thread about prospects?

As a result the Red Sox organization may have gotten a bit of a steal. A potential gold glove fielder, Bradley also possesses good speed and appears to understand his own strengths. He’s currently hitting .333 with 11 walks in 12 games. He also has four steals in five attempts. If Bradley, 22, keeps hitting for average, walking and stealing bases he could end up as a real impact player at the big league level. If his hitting levels off, though, he will likely still have value at the big league level because of his glove work.

    Its nice hes doing well but really too early to tell how things may turn out. I am excited to see Middlebrooks doing so well and Lav beginning to recover from being sent back down.  The way our team is playing, both could have a starting job next season and possibly significant playing time this season.   We began last season slow but Bobby appears to be lost with this club.  Not a good sign if he can't earn the respect of our players never mind fans. Of course injuries and still a lack of pitching like many of us predicted doesn't help his cause either.

    In reality, Valentine has been handed a garbage sandwich..
    I can't use the real word on the website...but you all know
    what I mean. This club is a joke....they can't hit and can't
    pitch...bottom line. OK..maybe they can pitch a bit. but if
    the lineup Valentine is given is composed of scrubs, they
    cannot score runs. This is evident in their record. Good
    opposing clubs just outscore the Sox and put them behind
    the eight ball early. ie. the Tigers , Rangers, and Yankees.
    the only reason they beat the Rays was because the Rays
    also have lousy hitting. Even the Orioles have better hitting.
    They have an all star catcher, good center and right fielders,
    a decent shortstop . etc. etc. The Sox have PApi and that's
    it. Don't expect Pedroia to carry this club. Forget Agon...
    he's a soft .300 hitter who is not a leader. Youk is on the
    downside. This is simply a last place club. Valentine has
    his work cut out for him to put it mildly.

    I should certainly hope that a 22 year old with big potential would do well in high A.  We'll see if this continues once he makes the move to AA.  The biggest question around him is health and how the wrist injury affects his power.

    Long time clock to Bradley, Jr. helping the terrible Red Sox OF. Can't blame you for pipe dreaming.

    USC=Southern Cal, not "Carolina". Carolina=North Carolina, not South Carolina Shamecocks. You don't know your baseball and couldn't get admitted to a University with high academic admission standards.

    Since South Carolina is the big pretender in football and stinks in basketball, at least you have a revenue losing sport that football subsidizes into a national elite program.

    Posted by hankwilliamsjr[/QUOTE]Did you ever stop to think that the purpose of this thread isn't to "pipe dream" as you put it about a quick fix for this year's outfield, but to have an honest discussion about someone who might be an exciting Red Sox prospect? Of course not because to you, the only thoughts worth thinking are the thoughts in your head. You really should go see a therapist or go live out in the woods far from electronics or something.

    Re: Jackie Bradley Jr.

    South Carolina has done pretty well lately in baseball haven't they? Oh yeah, it's just softy talking smack and distorting the truth again.

    Bradley has 5 errors so far in the OF, which is pretty incredible by itself, but he is reputed to be a solid defender. It's good to see him starting off well. Solid OBP numbers.
