    Re: List the Red Sox Issues you were wrong about

    In response to redsoxandguitars' comment:
    [QUOTE]

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


    In fact, Softlaw's comment was in reference to Ortiz when he first came off the DL. You prevaricate and left out where Softlaw said that Ortiz, if rested (and he was more than any season), could produce about 25 and 90 RBI's, which was about what he did. Softlaw's comment was always in reference to the merits of a 2 year contract on Ortiz, which should never have happened as Softlaw said to give Ortiz a 2 year deal with an option. 

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


    False, Softlaw said he should be rested once a week and not go more than about 120 games. You have edited your own comments and Softlaw's comments to reflect your prevarications. Ortiz was rested more than any season, and benefited from being on the disabled list this season. He did not start and finish more than a part-time workload. Other than grand slam that resulted from the since fired incompetent Jim Leyland, Ortiz was out of gas in the playoffs. 

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


    Salty is a back-up profile catcher, as he sat on the bench with those hands of stone in the WS.

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

    False, a patent lie. Softlaw applauded the 1 year deal after Napoli flunked the physical that ended the very stupid 30 to 40 million deal you have implored Red Sox ownership to give him. All you have done is keep aping how the Red Sox should resign a guy with degenerative hip disease who his more miles and closer to the end of his career. 

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


    False, Softlaw never said Drew was "a terrible fielder" or he has "zero range". Softlaw correctly stated that Drew had weak lateral range and was nother more than a below average fielder whose fielding percentage is nothing but a result of his weak lateral range. 

    I note that you, Slavemicist, said that Drew's range was weak, then pretended to be on his bandwagon and have since cowardly retreated from the stupidity of the Iglesias trade by whimpishly saying "well since Red Sox management sees Iglesias as UIF"er may as well trade him for some old castoff with plus 4 ERA and a giant contract"

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


    False, Softlaw correctly stated the Red Sox were a bubble playoff team and that Middlebrooks was the key to contending in the playoffs. He was correct, as it was Middlebrooks double out of the grave the Red Sox lineup was in that saved the day in Game 2 of the ALCS.

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


    He was and is.

    8) Gomes was a waste of money.


    False, a complete lie. Softlaw stated that Gomes was a fit but that the 2 year deal was a needless overpay in a market that never existed. He went on to say that the total guarantee of the deal was small enough to not be the kind of mistake you made with Santana or InEpstein and Cherry made with Crwaford, and that some GM is getting ready to make on Ellsbury, Drew and Napoli. 

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


    Ellsbury is the most overrated player in Red Sox history. Kemp looks like Mantle and Ted Williams next to this red-headed step child. I note that you did capitulate when I correctly stated that Ellsbury was overrated defensively in CF because he's a deer in headlights on any bloop or soft liner ball hit at or near him. The reason Ellsbury plays the big hop so many times, see Vladdy and 2009 Game 3 of ALDS, is because, despite his speed, he plays an absurdly deep CF to try and disguise what is a glaring weakness. I've seen a lot of strong defensive CF'ers, and Ellsbury falls below some of the medicore ones that I've seen. His skils are totally dependent on his speed, which will continue to decline as he moves into his thirties. His 700's OPS and OPS exposes a player of limited talent who can easily fool a lot of incompetent GM's. I expect to see some GM stupidyly guarantee this flashy phony about 100 million or more for less than the career averages and part-time work load his record reflects for his twentires work history. 

    I've noted that you want no part of bringing this guy back, but are too prideful and timid to refrain from the whimpy commentary about "I really want him back but I would not go more than 70 to 80M". Look, if you really want him back, let's not pretend that another 5M or so a year increase is a deal breaker!!! 

    Let's face it, you don't want this guy back but you're too cowardly to admit it. That's the reason why you keep shilling in this echo chamber. 

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


    He did, and he is a huge overpay. The false assumption is that "but for Victorino" the altneratives would not have worked on the 2013 team. Now that Shane's a virtual contract write off for the 26 million left on his contract, I want you tell me why you want Ellsbury back and would go 80 million to bring him back for what will be a big vacation as the SOP for veteran slugs who sign massive contracts. He's no exception to the rule. 

    11) Iggy and JBJ should be FT'ers


    They should be, and will be. 

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


    Carp did little but take time away from Nava. He showed how stupid it was to sit Nava. Now that he has a tiny bench record that looks shiny with his low costs, I'm delighted, now, that he's a perfect example of selling high on a guy who will go nowhere but down, even in a bench role. 

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


    False, when Softlaw repeats that it's stupidity to ever pay more than a proven offer sheet for any player but a minor league contract profile or an obvious low cost value and fit profile, no way he would ever pay more than "KC did for Guthrie". His limit on Guthrie was one year and 5M, only if that was the market rate. So, the truth is Guthrie, one of many detailed offer budget profiles listed by Softlaw, is little more than a fabricated strawman for someone who wanted the Red Sox to trade Lester for Santana. 

    14) Lackey was a bum.


    Lackey was and is a bum. I don't consider being a joke for most of his massive contract and then provided one season of quality labor to somehow make him a great value. But I've noted your standards are Lackey was a good contract because he had one less than a bottom half of the rotation bum. Of cousre, you wanted the Red Sox to guarantee 2 million to Wakefield in a market that never existed, becuase you loved the guy but would pretend that "I don't like the guy" but would go on to list all these stilly stat snipets to claim he was the best #5 and #6 starter in all of baseball. 

    15) Peavy was a bum.


    Peavy is a bum.

    16) Liked the Hanrahan trade.


    Softlaw denounced the Hanrahan trade. Of cousre, you did little but virtually endorse it.

    17) Hated the Aviles-Farrell trade.


    Loved the Aviles, SS bum, being run out of town. Farrell wasn't a trade, he was a contract hire and Aviles was compensation for a manger who Softlaw said he would keep an open mind about. 

    18) Hated Ben as the GM.


    Softlaw did hate Cherry as GM, and I'm sure still does. Hard to appluad one successful year using the yearly nuclear bomb to kill an anthill approach to each season. A lot of moves this guy has made will be bllowning up in his face, and beyond the "you get some right and you will miss a few". 

    19) Thought Lester was toast.


    Patently a lie. Soflaw told Southfaux to extend Lester during the part of the season where he was slumping. It was you who wanted Lester traded for Santana. 

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


    Crawford should have been kept and traded when his value went up, in what wasn't a trade but what was write off. No one mentions the tons paid to Crawbust before his departure and the large sum paid to make this "trade". Beckett should have been written off separately, and AGon for Napoli goes farther than Napoli in 2013. The assumption is that Napoli was part of this magical team where only Middlebrooks and Iglesias had nothing to do with the 2013 team success. In reality, Lester, Buchholz, Lackey, Ortiz, Pedoria  Koki were anywhere close to being essential performers on a team that was more lucky than good, by virtue of virtual season long injuries to Tex and Jeter, which would have changed the issue of homefield.

    If this team is this "great team", it will resign Napoli, Ellsbury and Drew and prove they were more than a fluke. The 2008 Red Sox and 2007 Red Sox would destroy this Red Sox team, not to mention the 2009 Yankees et al. It was good fortune with the injury to Miggy and the blunder by Leyland when the Red Sox were buried, and even involved the Cardinals with early WS injury to Beltran and the ealier injury to Craig. It took a perfect storm of long shots to end up where it did.

    Were the Red Sox due for a perfect storm of good fortune. Of course they were, after many decades of bad fortune. But, since you were starting "sell threads" before the 2013 season even started, let's not pretend that this lucky season was barely more than a fluke.

    But, If that's not the case, time to guarantee about a quarter of a billion dollars to keep that magic and bring back Ellsbury, Napoli and Drew. I'd love to see it for the sake of exposing it. And because of all the whining that will take place if Ellsbury and/or Napoli and/or Drew go elsewhere and the Red Sox don't get the perfect storm miracle breaks of 2013. If we had just kep this guy or that guy, we'd be back strong in the playoffs and looking at another title. Nonsense. 

     

    (I already listed my long list of mistake


    You need to list them here.

    The only mistake Softlaw made, for which he gave himself an F on 2013 team ending projection, was calling them a bubble playoff team, which was true, but incorrectly calling them a non-title-contender. 

     

    There isn't anyone on this Board that even remotely suggested the 2013 Red Sox would get to the WS, much less win it, unless it was snarky joke;)

    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.

    [/QUOTE]

    He said 'Ellsbury would look better in an Indians hat, but is no Jim Thorpe'

    That was a shot at his Native American heritage, further demeaning his talent as compared to a famous NA Olympian and football player and Softy has also said he is fine with the awful Indians logo that mocks a group of people.

    Many times back when Ells was breaking into the league Softy smeared his heritage in addition to his name, saying his mixed race and good looks lef to his being overrated. Softy tried to claim 'reverse racism' when saying he supported guys like Crisp and Lugo so others who used the STATS to show Ells and Lowrie were better must be racist.

    He has made MANY racist jabs at Big Papi as well over the years.

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


    Before I dress down this delusion, since when is waiting until Lackey delivers a professional work product before "rooting for him by the end of the year" have anything to do with loyalty to the Red Sox team?

    Correct Ranking of Red Sox CF'ers in the history of the Red Sox:

    1. Tris Speaker  HOF  (only great Red Sox CF'er)

    2. Fed Lynn AL MVP 4 time gold glover & 6 time All-Star with the Red Sox (9 Time All-Star total)

    (close to great Red Sox CF'er)

    3. Jackie Jensen AL MVP & 2 Time AS with the Red Sox 4 times top 20 League MVP Voting Gold Glove (Close to great Red Sox CF'er)

    4. Dom Dimaggio  7 Time AS with the Red Sox  (Close to great Red Sox CFer)

    5. Doc Cramer 4 Time AS with the Red sox

    6. Reggie Smith 2 Time AS with the Red Sox .855 OPS Gold Glove and 314 Career homers

    7. Jim Piersall 2 Time AS with the Red Sox top 30 in AL MVP Voting 3 times 

    8. Ellis Burks .874 OPS 352 Career Homers AS, Gold Glove & Silver Slugger with Red Sox

    9. Johnny Damon 2 time AS with the Red Sox 408 career steals and 235 career homers

    10. Tillie Walker  A powerful right-handed hitter with a legendary throwing arm as the CF'er for the 1916 World Champion Red Sox. Though Ruth monopolized the home run laurels for the rest of Walker's career, the red-haired Tennessean still ranked in the top five in the league every year from 1919 to 1922, when he belted a career-best 37 round-trippers in the dead ball era. Walker batted .266 for the Red Sox in 1916, with 29 doubles, 11 triples, and three home runs, one of which came at Fenway Park on June 20 against New York Yankees right-hander Ray Keating. The blast, which carried over the park's 24-foot left field barrier, was the only home run hit by Boston at home all season. (Opposing teams also managed to hit only one home run at the park that year.) At the time, Walker was the only player to have cleared the left field fence more than once, as he had also achieved the feat twice while playing for the Browns.

    Author's Note: While once being touted as "the next Ted Williams", then the"the next Ichiro", then "a poor man's Johnny Damon", Ellsbury's slightly above average MLB career, now entering it's last phase, has been a bust in the shadow of the throng of Red Sox fans who love him because he can run fast. As of the fall of 2013, most Red Sox fans advocate guaranteeing this career sub .800 OPS long ball era OPS and pretzel bone structure profile over 100 million to retain his services for the last phase of his professional sports career. 

    Althouth it may be an emotional blow to many Red Sox fans, detaching oneself from the moment in which one lives is essential to grasp reality instead of the delusions driven by the human emotions of pride and prejudice.

    Re: List the Red Sox Issues you were wrong about

    Mistakes softy made: everything. 

    Highlights: 

    - condeming the Dodgers trade when it was clearly the right trade at the right time. 

    - calling for Cherry's firing several weeks into the season when he will likely win executive of the year. 

    Being wrong about many individual players fits into these umbrellas of wrongness. 

    Let's not forget his worship of the Detroit Tigers and how he was openly rooting for them to beat the Sox to prove his nutjob theories right. 

    The list goes on and on but it's pointless, as we all realize now that softy is not a Red Sox fan at all. 

    There is no redemption for him now. 

    As for myself I was wrong that I thought this team, while being a good team this year, would win a World Series. I did not think we had a championship caliber team this year. I liked the trades and liked paying a bit more for short term deals (something softy hated), but specifically I was down on the starting pitching. I did NOT think Lackey had it in him, nor did I think Lester could be an ace of a staff. 

    The pitching was the key to the season and I was wrong about that and have said so. I am happy to be wrong as I am thrilled we won a championship this season.

    Many others have freely said they were wrong about a number of things. Only softy has refused which is why starting a thread to point out his own refusal is odd. 

    Go find another place to hang out dude, we're done with you.

    I think that many of us were worried about Papi with his achillies injury from last August until May of this year. I was.  I was also concerrned when Hanrahan and Bailey had season ending injuries. Not a bad assumption on anyone's opinion to express concern at the time. I am sure that the FO was also very concerned.  Express your concern and be done with it.

    Of course we were all concerned about Papi at the beginning of the year.  We all expressed said concern.

    The big difference with Stiffy and your average Red Sox fan.......  We have real concerns, & hope for the best with respect to all Red Sox players.  Stiffy?  He makes a prediction about a Red Sox player with a concern.  Invests everything he has in the demise of said player.  Openly mocks & ridicules all Red Sox players that he has taken a vested interest in failing.......   & on & on......

    We express our concerns & frustrations with Red Sox players, then LOVE jumping behind them when they show the fire to make a comeback.  Sure!  We'll turn on a guy who doesn't have any passion, then is content to sit on his arrrrs, doing nothing more than taking up space.  Lackey is the prime example.  He may well have been injured, but when Red Sox fans saw him come to camp fat & out of shape, with a bad attitude to boot.....  Well, we turned on him.  He comes to camp in 2013 in great shape & a definitive new attitude and a burning passion to compete?  Well, we were all in by opening day!!! Those of us who despised him were even rooting for him on day 1.  As we saw him push harder, we pulled for him all the more!!!!  Stiffy?  He kept on rooting against all Red Sox players he had targeted for failure, as he has always done

    Stiffy?  The guy is all about what he thinks is best for him.  He weds himself to his negative predictions about every other Red Sox players, and will never relent.  He makes it all about himself, and wraps his very existence in their failure.  WELL.......   FAIL HE DID IN 2013!  On an epic scale!!!!!!  He made it all about him, and he came out looking like the biggest fool in BDC Red Sox Forum history!  Just desserts!!!!  Live by the sword, die by the sword!  Stiffy is dying a cowards thousand deaths, as he continues to deny and run from his own words.  Too bad for him, as we all remember his every word from Spring Training on.  I've never seen anyone, anywhere, in any venue be so wed to the failure of "his own team," simply to claim an ill gotten victory.  This has been Stiffy's MO for years!!!  Nothing new!   Well.....  His every prediction was proven wrong, & he can't stand it.  YOU GOTTA LOVE KARMA!!!!!  :)  He's getting everything he deserves!  It's almost too easy to mock the guy?  Especially a guy who fancies himself as "a great baseball mind."  There are still a number of guys on here who love to blow smoke up his backside, but they only taint their own names.  I don't get it, but they obviously think they gain "cred" buy talking about how much Stiffy knows, falsely assuming they benefit by means of association????  Right ;)  Bad call boys!  You simply look foolish!!!  You ignore his pathologically nasty socio-political ramblings at your own peril.  You ignore his pathologically nasty Red Sox player character assassinations at your own peril.. ;Z  ;)

    Anyway....   Most of us were concerned about the Sox at the start of the year, but we threw everything we had behind our team.  Stiffy threw everything he had against them and FAILED!  LOVE IT!!!!!  :)
