    Going into the playoffs I was worried about the bridge from the starters to koji, but they ended up doing a great job overall

    I was worried about Napoli's defense.  He was not only decent, but he was the best defensive 1B in the AL this year.

    Agreed I thought Andrew Miller's injury was a death sentence to the bridge. Thankfully I was wrong.

    Re: List the Red Sox Issues you were wrong about

    Here's just a portion of that old poster named softy's issues he was wrong about:

    pre-season calls:

    1) Papi was now a "punch and judy hitter....with bat speed no fatser than Iggy."

    2) Papi would end up on the DL, unless he rested once a week and did not exceed 105 games.

    3) Salty was a "back-up profile catcher".

    4) Napoli was a bum and poor fielder at 1B.

    5) Drew was a terrible fielder with "zero range".

    6) Middy was our only hope to even make the playoffs.

    7) Nava was a back-up profile LF'er.

    8) Gomes was a waste of money.

    9) Ellsbury was, well there are too many negatives to list.

    10) Victorino was a huge overpay and clashed with Ellsbury.

    11) Iggy and JBJ should be FT'ers

    12) Carp was a waste (even though he cost us no players to acquire).

    13) Wanted us to pay more than KC did for J Guthrie (arguably the leagues worst SP).

    14) Lackey was a bum.

    15) Peavy was a bum.

    16) Liked the Hanrahan trade.

    17) Hated the Aviles-Farrell trade.

    18) Hated Ben as the GM.

    19) Thought Lester was toast.

    20) Thought we should have kept Crawford until his value went up and hated "the Dodger trade".

    I'll stop at 20.

     

    (I already listed my long list of mistakes several times on other more worthy threads.)

    1-I liked Carp's fit, but thought he was better than Overbay only beause he could play LF as well as 1st.  He was much better than I anticipated.

    2-I thought Ross was gone in August.  Thought the concussions had him on retirement's doorstep.

    3-Thought Uehara would be toast by the end of August.  My plan was to use him for every save until we clinched the pennant, and then wing it with whatever we had left in the BP.  I can't beleive someone his age was sharp until the very last game.

    4-I thought Dempster would pitch to an ERA of below 4.25.

    5-Liked, and still like Bailey, and would sign him to a minor league split deal.

    Re: List the Red Sox Issues you were wrong about

    I was wrong about Softy being a Red Sox fan. I was wrong for a while with that because I wasn't really involved in the threads he was in, and had spoke to him once when he seemed like a genuine person. However, his TOTAL annoyance and disappointment with the Sox winning the World Series can't really be ignored by anyone. Making excuses as to why they won was just the icing on the cake. Unbelievable.

    IMO all of his suggestions as to what the Sox should and shouldn't do, probably should be the complete opposite.

    And talking/obsessing about a team you don't even enjoy, and possibly hate, on their own team board is mind boggling to me. There's just so many other ways to spend and enjoy your time. JMO

    Hahahhahahahahaha

    Look at the racist fool wrong about EVERYTHING this year spin, lie, smear, move goalposts and HATE on the Red Sox

    HAHAHA

    Can we get a bigger fool gluttony for punishmnet loser than Softy? Returning over and over to the site of his humiliation despite being despised by 995 of the posters here and NOT a fan of this team. Can you have a more lonely and pathetic life than that?



    What did he say that was racist? Because if that's true, he should be banned for life from this forum under whatever name he appears on...immediately. How does he get to stay here for so long until he says something else?? I don't get it.

    Ellsbury.  Has now cemented himself as one of the greatest CF'ers in the history of the Boston Red Sox.

    Lackey - had me rooting for him by the end of the year.

    Re: List the Red Sox Issues you were wrong about

    I was wrong:

    I thought Lowrie wRC+ 121 would win the Silver Slugger over Hardy 98.

    I didn't think Bill Hall would be the first positional starter of 2011 to be DFAd (46 games).

    I didn't think Mike Cameron (starting CF profile) would have .477 in 2011.

    In the off-season, I didn't think Lester and Lackey could both dominate in the playoffs again.  I'm happy to admit I was wrong.

    In the off-season, I never would have guessed that Workman and Uehara ( who gave up 3 HR in 3 games in 2011 PS) would anchor a bullpen to win a WS.

    I didn't think Jenks, Bard, Aceves, Bailey, Melancon, and Hanrahan would all implode and it would be a good thing.
