In response to softlaw2's comment:
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...
So again....put up or shut up kid?
There are few things more futile in life than arguing Ellsbury with Softy.
Yep....just found that out!
