    3 FREAKIN HITS WHILE being a strong leadoff guy like back in his breakout season. 2 rbis incl a triple is pretty good stuff!

      YES, he had a good game.......  I did get concerned on his slide to home early in the game (out) ....  I had a vision of him slideing over the BAT that would have raised he!! with the RIBS  !!!!  (AGAIN)

    He was not the difference for winning today, but his soon to be replacement was. Winning isn't about the box score in a season or a career or one game.

    He has a reverse piviot, which is why there was 2008, 2009, 2010 before he was hurt, and 2012. He is not worth more than a 3 year contract, but that won't matter. The time to trade him was with the draft compenastion. He's always been an overrated prima donna who has been a loser on every team he's had the starting season role with.

    He misplayed the route on the 2 runs the Yankees scored. He was also thrown out on a base running blunder. He doesn't make plays that win games, which is part of being a prima donna.

    That said, the Red Sox should not trade for nothing they'll get, even if he does well into the summer. They should ride it out and take the draft compensation, and take advantage of the fact they can play him wherever and how much they want to during a long 161 game season.

    man Softy, Ells just can't do right by you , can he??

    "He was also thrown out on a base running blunder."

     

    come on now. Even the YES announcers said that was a Set Play. Every team does that because the odds are good it pays off more than it doesn't. Pedroia just didn't hit the ball good enough that particular time.

    Sorry dude, but 3 hits and 2 RBI helps you win games every time.

    The contact play. It makes sense with one out. You don't want to stay on third while they record the second out.

    according to softy, all of his numbers are attributed to A-gone, Papi and Pedroia..... If they didn't have such good years then Ells wouldn't have been given such a steady diet of fastballs to hit.

    because you know, it works like that and DEFINITELY NOT the reverse....

    Ellsbury was hands down the player of the game. 3 for 6 is just great with a triple. Pedroia needs to get the ball in the air in that situation.

    Yes he did.  It's been one of his finest efforts in maintaining an argument against all that is reasonable and logical.  Ellsbury only had that season because of Gonzo hitting behind him...and maybe his offseason program.

    You think this is bad? Not long ago, a young girl ventured out too far in the River Charles and began to drown. Upon witnessing the frightening scene from the shore, Jacoby Ellsbury sprinted several hundred yards across the water and saved the girl.

     

    The next day, Softy started a thread titled, "Jitterbug Jake can't swim!"

    first off, Ells didn't cause 2 unearned runs because nobody would've gotten to that ball unless they were out of position. PLUS, that caused the bases to be loaded... not allow 2 runs to score.

    he breaked as soon as there was contact on Pedeys bat, dustin just put a terrible swing on the ball.

    try harder.

    In response to softlaw2's comment:

    Ellsbury was hands down the player of the game

    I'm glad ESPN didn't see it that way, at all. Not surprising you would falsely claim that.

    Let's look at some facts, on the soon to be departing prima donna, Ellspuff:

    He misplayed the route that caused 2 earned runs on the bloop ball to CF

    He was thrown out at 3rd because he didn't break immediately with the ball hit the Pedroia's bat.

    He had 2 RBI's.

    That nets out to costing more runs than he produced. He was the worst player of the game, for those who played for the Red Sox today.

    Bradley saved 2 runs on an oustanding catch on a knuckling liner hit right at him and over his head.

    Bradley created at least 1 run by beating out the throw to 2nd, after drawing the tough AB walk to get on base. That started the scoring.

    Bradley saved 1 run and produced at least one other. He was the ESPN and obvious player of the game. He is the spark for the Red Sox.

    Ellsbury is a prima donna who only plays when he thinks it benefits his career. He is a loner with a sullen disposition.

    Bradley is a winner who has changed the Red Sox brand. The Red Sox should know by now that Ellsbury should not be on the payroll after 2013, should have been traded long before now.



    Worst post I've ever read!!!!!! 

     

    Misplayed the route ?????? What the he!! Is that supposed to mean ?? 

     

    Thrown out at third ???? You didn't even watch the game !!!!!

    I am in agreement with softlaw with this. hits do win games but intangeables do make a difference. I didn't expect a 3 for 4 game from Bradley since it was his first major league game and never went up against a pitcher like Sabathia, he did force Sabathia to throw and did work an 0-2 count into a walk which also allowed him to score. The hits will come but the energy this team has is something that was totally missing laast season. when Gomes scored and came in enthusiastic, this team doesn't hav a high expectation but who knows.

    Not to mention the comment about Ellsbury being a sullen loner. Their is so many falsehoods in this post you get even touch his main point of so how a player who didn't get a hit was better than a player who got 3.

    I'm no Ells fan and really hope he is not with the team next year unless it's for pennies.......BUT....I'm still waiting for you to accept my bet on who will have the better stats this year.....Upton or Ells.  Your reply was something along the lines of "the real question is which team will have the better record".....LAME!! 

    Let's see if your hero Upton is worth the over 100Million$ contract you wanted to sign him for......

    Put up or shut up kid.....

    how a player who didn't get a hit was better than a player who got 3.

    RBI's, batting order, defense, energy, patience, plate work with runners on base, are just a frew areas that expose the box score claims. There was a reason why ESPN experts lauded Bradley as the player of the game. It goes with what the player prevents in runs and creates in runs at the critical junctures in the competition.

    Kingfarce, AL and NL ball and parks make it impossible to compare a slugging haven like Boston and AL East parks and the DH league. However, J. Upton homered off of Hamels in the Braves win, and that homer was huge in that win.

    J. Upton isn't going to cost that much, because he's under contract for years at a lower rate, but I want you to tell Cherry how much to offer your favorite player, Ellsbury, when he desperately tries to create more than one big market bidding team at the end of this year.  




    You do realize that Feway has one of the deepest and largest right fields in all of baseball and that Ells is a lefty ...correct?   You also do realize that you DID say the Sox should sign Upton for over $100mil ...correct?  You also do realize that I agreed with you countless times that the Sox should trade Ells ....correct?  You also do realize you're trying to talk your way out of a simple little bet...correct? 

    So now that your boy is off to a stellar start.....this bet should be money in the bag for you...correct?

    If you're afraid of a monitary bet.....let's do this: If Ells has the better stats for the season you stop posting here for 6 months.....if Upton has better stats I'll stop posting here ofr 6 months...
