    Just wanted to take a minute

    And give props to guys like Pede, Iggy, Nava, Clay, Jon, Uehara and Bailey for their great starts.  With Iggy?  I have always been a skeptic as to whether or not he could consistantly hit major league pitching enough to stick in this lineup.  After watching some great plays in the field and an aggressive approach offensively "I agree" he should remain on the big club when Drew returns.  I don't think being sent back to the minors would help his career or confidence level at this point. 

    With that said I still like Ciraico if Middy or Pede get hurt but would love to see Iggy finally solidify our future at SS, it would make a Bogy decision that much easier if he can play 3B with Middy moving to 1B.  With Nava? hes another competitor who deserves some playing time "at this point" probably more than Bradley who has struggled a bit in the field and at the plate.

    Lastly, I have really been pleased with the way Lester and Clay have taken the leadership approach on our staff.  This is probably the most important step to our club acheiving the 88 wins I predicted if it continues because with kids like Webster, Barnes and company we have the arms to bring in if Dempster, Doub or Lackey struggle.  Our pen looks to be as good as any in the AL East which should only help us win close games throughout the year so keep up the great work guys.

    This should be a fun team to watch, especially if Papi can return withouth experiencing a lengthy slump before finding his groove.

    yup.  it's been pretty fun to watch so far.  Sox are getting hits contantly and scores early in the game.  Lester and Bucholz are pitching like CY winners so far. Hope they keep up the good work and attitude.

    Right now Sox could care less if the big sloppy returns.

    Bradley on the roster was a huge mistake. He's been overmatched, and only has a .330 OBP. The sooner they get Ortiz and Drew on the field, the better this team will do.

     




     

     

     

    sonner this board bans u for good the betterr

     



    even if BDC banned by IP address an old dumb hillbilly like Softy could figure out how to change his IP

    i'm not so sure he does.. he told me he would save my FA offer to jacoby to laugh at later and he said just the other day that it wasn't on his drive. Either he's a liar about saving my post or he's a liar about having a backup drive. Personally, i hope it's the latter. Having a backup drive filled with random peoples post on an internet forum is kind of sad.. At least use that extra storage for porn not to stalk people Tongue Out

    I have the feeling that backup drive is stuffed full with Jacoby Ellsbury jpegs.

    i hear the ladies think jacoby is hawt. Softy must think so too. it explains the grade school crush he has on him. His Jake-bashing is akin to pulling a girls hair because you like her and don't know what else to do.

    Bradley on the roster was hardly a huge mistake...the kid's getting a valuable "cup of coffee" and will be that much better prepared when his time comes. Later this year or  next spring....Remember Pedrioa hit well below the mendoza line for the better part of two months when he got called up....Bradley has shown good plate disipline, has played good defense and almost took Andy Petitte to souvenier city in Yankee stadium. Please let's not over react and bury the kid before he's even turned 22 with less than 100 big league at bats...

    apples to oranges. Pedroia went to AAA and showed he could make adjustments at each level. Bradley has ~50 games above A ball and didn't really show he could adjust when facing more advanced pitching. JBJ is going to be a great ballplayer and his time in the majors is sure to be valuable but his situation is vastly different than pedroias and we should treat it as such.

    I agree Soft-Guy and great post! Probably the only mistake they have done so far.  Glad they'll be putting him back in AA or AAA to get his swing back and learn how to hit the inside pitch because he's overmatched. 

    It's all good though....Ellsbury is doing great at leadoff and really masking a lot of JBJ's recent woes.
