    Larry Bird just walked through that door!

     Not since Larry Legend has the hub seen a clutch performer like Adrian Gonzalez.
    This guy is bigger than the moment. In Sox terms, he's like 1967 Yaz. His Ichiro inpersonation was like Larry going to the middle with a left handed sky-hook. His wall ball blast to win the game is like Larry's step back three pointer to ice the game. The Manny comparisons are way off, and here's why, Manny seldomly hit walk-off any things, Manny hit just 3 of his 555 as walk-offs, none in the regular season with the Sox. Manny, while very good, was more like McHale. Adrian is the Bird, and Bird is the word.

     Ortiz is not exactly all-natural, if you know what I mean. Bird-Gonzalez is still closer than Ortiz-Gonzalez, IMO.

     At this point in his first season, Jose was hitting .345 1 HR 19 RBI, not too shabby,
    CC fans should take notice!

    Up to now he's been underwhelming his reputation. He was supposed to spray balls all over Fenway, especially LF. He's the worst cleanup hitter in the ALE, NLE or heck MLB. If he's going to hit like OFFER-MAN, why did they make him such a big Offer, man? His line shows that he's still recovering from surgery, he getting no lift on his hits, and because he makes decent contact he'll get his hits, until he starts showing some pop, don't you think he should be dropped? Here is his Fenway hit chart:

    As a four or five hitter he really offers no protection, and should be placed where singles and doubles guys bat.

    Not to take anything away from Adrian, but walk-offs in May = LeBron.  Walk-offs in October = Larry Legend.  Let us reconvene at a later date.

    Beat me to it, Space.

    Gonzo has been a terrific addition, but comparing him with Larry Legend is WAY premature.
