    [QUOTE]Nice to see Ellbury first opposite field hr in his career. With Crawford and arbitration it will be nice to see near 30M and Aviles and Jackson in 2012 and this combo v Lee and hamels if it ends up those 2 in 2011 WS. CERA didnt work well tonight, so with passed ball scored WP, nice to see Varitek working hard for another backup catcher contract. FA Varitekwill have to fend off big FA offers for his production as backup catcher 40 years old. I liked, much better, the smart punch and judy cue shot to make Yankees pay for defense set-up. As wooden and pitiful as the old blind hog looked, other players should learn to employ this approach more often. Last night was quite good for Ortiz, which had to be overlooked with those pretending that Bellsbury is now better than Ortiz, this year. No Red Sox fan mania of desperation to sign Ortiz, but pleading to make a deal with Boras and Bellsbury.  Note: AGon is the MVP, by far, no offense to Ortiz. Ellsbury is nothing more than hype for MVP, for a player that has less than 50 hR in his entire career and never more than 9 in a season before Agon. One opposite field homer in career isnt a sign of things to come, its a sign that career averages and quality of batters around is not value or team balance production worth paying Crawford 20M and Ellburys 2 years of overpaid arbitration. Popularity always brings out the vitriol if a popular player is criticisized, which is why Ortiz has always been fair game and is disrespected. Popularity is not based upon productivity and numbers.

    You foolishly wanted Tek to retire. What a dummy.
    Tek ties and then puts the one game Boston won out of reach.
    He gets Beckett through a tough inning of missed location.

    As for who is and who isn't cutting it:
    AGONE: .856 OPS in 2nd half.
    JAKE:    .938 OPS in 2nd half.

    Laughter is claiming reverse pivot is why ells can't hit.

    Laughter is not knowing why one career other way homer.

    Laughter is thinking one game means a 40 year old catcher has teams interested in his services as FA.

    [QUOTE]Laughter is claiming DiceK on DL in 2007. Laughter is in looking in a vacuum and not being able to distinguish between pre-agon and career averages. Laughter is not looking at the 45M spent on 2011 OF and comparing one lefty OPS v. another lefty OPS v LP. Laughter is not knowing that a massive budget for 2011 that has all nearly all left feet is pure idiocy.

    HA! Now that is funny! You are so easily duped, with UR bias/player bashing.
    You are as predictable as Seattle rain...and over the last 2 years, just as monotonous. I sucked you into doing the very research you denounced. And then you couldn't show anything backing UR 43% fat city baloney.

    You think because AGONE is here that Jake is excelling. What an idiot.
    Jake has matured as a hitter, fool. Don't you watch these games? Look how many outside strikes he's hooked into the Fenway BP. Think that's an easy poke?
    He's making better use of his quick bat speed. He's making the very adjustments you claimed he'd never make.

    He's out-hitting AGONE in the all-important second half of the season.
    He's out-hitting AGONE vs. southpaws, UR earlier pet peeve.

    Keep shooting blanks.



    He's seeing less fastballs and less pitches in the strike zone as a result.
