    Lavarnway

    This guy seems to be the real deal. Hit another homer tonight for Pawtucket and has his average up to .355 with an OPS of 1.064.

    Re: Lavarnway

    I was even considering bringing him up when Ortiz is out but it's better to wait until September.

    Re: Lavarnway

    Do not worry that is all we seem to do, "Bring up another one from Pawtucket" instead of getting something done while we are in first place. Wakefield is 44 years old, Miller has been pitching against inferior National League Teams and bad American League Teams. Did anyone have any doubts that he was going to do badly against a good team like the Rays. The other kid was absolutely awful against Baltimore last week and was actually lucky to make it out of the 2nd inning. 
    Jenks'sproblem is that he is over weight and I cannot believe one of our trainers has not seen that and gotten the guy on a regimen. He might have been okay when he was younger but that was 6 years ago. As you age the weight works against you.
    Theo better make a deal soon. This is starting to remind me of last year when we were within a game and a half of first place near the allstar break and he did nothing.

    The Redsox generally have a lot of deep depth on the farm, compared to most teams, and they are willing to do a deal if necessary. It shouldn't kill us to even stand pat this summer IMO. Reddick has done well in RF. Crawford will be back soon. Lester, Beckett, Buchholz and Matsuzaka have all been on the D and we are still in 1st. Hopefully we will get healthy soon. Any other team with those level of injuries would be 3-5 games back minimum.

    Re: Lavarnway

    Reposted from Moon's "realistic" thread:

    Consider Lavarnway's Minor League Stats as compared to Fisk from A level through AAA:

    Fisk:

    1968 - Ave = .338 HR = 12 OPS = N/A
    1969 - Ave = .243 HR = 10 OPS = .746
    1970 - Ave = .229 HR = 12 OPS = .763
    1971 - Ave = .263 HR = 10 OPS = .763

    Lavarnway:

    2009 - Ave = .285 HR = 21 OPS = .907
    2010 - Ave = .288 HR = 22 OPS = .882
    2011 - Ave = .308 HR = 22 OPS = .942  ( *** Not through yet )

    Salty's minor league numbers are more in line with Fisk's. When looked at just by the numbers, Lavarnway projects to be a much better hitter than Fisk, and he is trending up. Both Fisk and Lavarnway were about the same age, same size, same speed when they put up these numbers. Fisk was considered better defensively. When you look at Lavarnway run and swing, both players look similar. This may be the first time both players are compared but the similarities are remarkable.

    Re: Lavarnway

    keep larvarnway in pawtucket until at least september to see if he remains consistent down at AAA rather than bring him up to sit deep on the bench and get a couple of pinch hit appearance.

    he is not going to push ortiz out of the lineup as big papi is actually hitting the left hander better than righties, ortiz is not going to play in front of gonzalez so where would larvarnway play?

    his potential appears to be better than what varitek and saltalamacchia can provide at the plate, but larvarnway reportedly is not yet a good AAA catcher.

    he should not be traded any team this year for a rental player!!!
