    He wasn't here long, and he's not lousy. Good defender and is handling the bat well. S. Drew wasn't here and he was lousy, just like he is this year. You need your head examined.



    Bench warmer that could come in and get a hit from time to time or spot start. Thats about it. And while Im sure I do need my head examined, my memory of Loney flying to left and bouncing to second is in tact.

    There a high probability that Loney wouldnt do well in a bench role since hes never been a bench guy. It takes some time to get used to, and some guys arent able to adapt at all. No guarantees that he would be a good "value and fit" besides on paper.

    He's been good value and fit for the Rays, on paper and on the field. I think he would have been a great fit and value, splitting time with Napoli who shouldn't be playing more than part-time.




    I dont disagree about his value, but not sold on the fit part as a bench guy with Boston. I still question if he could do it and be productive. Agree that he was the perfect value/fit with TB though.

    I like that, better than Carp. A contract extension of one year at 3M would have done the trick. A better compliment to old Napoli.

    Loney's off to great start, but he's not going to be a slugging first baseman. But he is a good fit and value to platoon off the bench on a one year 3M deal.

    Loney = Casey Kotchman without the defense.   Do not let 10 game sample sizes fool you. 

     

    The interesting part is softlaw choosing Loney's biannual hot streak to pat himself on the back and cry prophet as he foresaw the clear choice over Carp, yet Carp is still actually outhitting Loney.  (Actually, he was touting Loney over Napoli, but why split hairs at this point?)

     

    You will never convince people you can see the future if you cannot even see the present.

     

    (OK, that last line was kind of deep, especially for me.  I am thinking maybe someone needs to make that a signature, you know, quote me or soemthing.)

    I don't think any other team, other than the Ray's, made an offer to James--and we know about "hindsight"--James and his ground balls to first and second--would have driven Sox fans crazy. I'm happy for him having an outstanding season.

    Like others on the board have reminded Softy Law how he wanted no part of James except for the fact that he could have been had on the cheap; typical Softy premise.

    I totally forgot about Loney's brief tenure with the Sox...i dont think another slap-hitting corner fielder is what we needed...I like napoli

    In response to softlaw2's comment:

    I think if he played about 80 games or more he would be fine. Napoli is better suited as a matchup vs. certain pitchers hitter and pinch hitter.

    At any rate, Napoli was a good value and fit, at 5M base and one year. But I like Loney better than Carp.

    But the issue for the Red Sox is a lineup that doesn't cut it in the middle. Middlebrooks is the only potential changer of that, and he's playing with the rib injury. Middlebrooks is a keeper, that's for sure.




    HAHA!!!!!  It's so much fun listening to you ramble and twist things around....maybe you really are a lawyer after all!!  EVERY player you like has been horrible....and every player you hate has been great.  WMB (the player you have a man crush on) has been a trainwreck....but now that he has sore ribs you now have an excuse.......but you are ignoring the fact that he was a mess before the injury.

    Go away......you're sad.

    Yeah, you're right. Loney was just the piece we need to become a bona fide contender for a ring this year.

    Does Loney play left field? Loney is starting and only has one more HR. Those two players are very different and Carp is a "better fit and value".

    Drew has been pretty solid lately.
