    Re: Looks like "jitterbug jake" is turning into a key player for the Sox

    I have a "oftlaw" theory. Sometimes he makes a projection based on his "analysis" and just gets it wrong. It happens to all of us. I thought Reddick was ready a year ago but that didn't work out that great did it. Maybe there is still time with his 8 HR this year and improved plate discipline but the point it that lots of us make player predictions which just don't work out.

    The difference is that "oftlaw" just can't stand to ever, ever, ever ....be wrong. The guy will be saying something negative about the player on the day of his HOF speech. It makes little difference what school he went to but that may be an issue to a degree. I just think softy is clinically unable to admit it when he's wrong.

    There is something going on the the Sox farm system this year which is pretty phenomenal. Lot's of players appear to have emerged as top prospects now. Middlebrooks, Jacobs, Coyle, Hassan, Brentz, Hazelbaker, Vitek, Head, Ranaudo, Hernandez...etc. The farm is briming with studs. Let's hope it keeps up.

    1-5 at leadoff is not a "good night".

    It's Ok for CEOs to collude and worse together, but heaven forbid if some workers try to unite to get a bigger piece of the pie.

    Mo, I think the MLBPA has a pretty large "piece of the pie". Should their accountants be handling the books? I don't think so!

    Real easy solution for millionaire Big Labor to get a bigger piece of the pie, and that's to use those millions to form their own league and do their own books. As with what bankrupted Detroit, Big Labor wants $50 an hour to push a broom and lifelong retirement without putting up the financial capital.

    Thanks Hill, it is 9 I see. What happened to Federowitz, he was tearing the cover off the ball. Guess its all part of growing up.

    If Softlaw had his way, Coco Crisp would still be our centerfielder and Ellsbury would have been traded for a 4th string catcher or a reliever in the minors.

    In the first 26 days of the season, Jacoby Ellsbury posted a .221/.294/.429 line.

    Neither my sample nor your sample is particularly revealing because of their small sizes. And neither sample accounts for Ellsbury's defensive play.

    Ellsbury is a career .291/.344/.410 hitter while in this season's small sample Ellsbury is a .291/.345/.463 hitter.

        I won't ask which half is sane ....   in my case, it might cause an argument from the other two halves ....

    Has any Redsox player ever had a good UZR/150 in CF in Boston, besides Ellsbury ( who has done it twice ). I seriously doubt it. I think they have the park factor way off. They adjusted it last year but it's still off IMO.

    It can be done, but it is not common...

    Sox CF UZR:

    2002: Damon    +2.2
    2003: Damon     -4.0
    2004: Damon     -8.4
    2005:
    Damon   -16.8
    2006: C. Crisp   -1.4
    2007: C. Crisp +25.1
    2008: Ellsbury +21.3
             C. Crisp     -2.2 
    2009: Ellsbury    -9.7

    It only shows that hes been solid with the bat for the last month..thats all I meant by it..Im not high on the kids D, but I still think hes above average. Im not a big fan of defensive UZR..I think its too flawed but has SOME merit..just my opinion.

    I forgot Crisp in CF that one year. He was outstanding. I was commenting that it seems to be tough to put up good numbers in Fenway's CF.

    I don't think Damon's numbers are skewed. His speed kept him from being worse. His arm was worse than my granma's.

    I still think Jacoby does not get great breaks on balls as they are hit. He seems to be better than 2009, but not by much. He still plays too deep and at times takes the " long road" to the ball. He makes some tough plays, and at times makes marginal tough plays look real tough.

    I find it interesting that no voter from the Fieldng Bible has ever chosen him as a top 10 OF'er...not one.

    That being said, I still think Jacoby is a big plus to this team. His prime is just about to begin and his bat and eye are showing signs of maturing. His speed is a plus on offense, but he could use some better instincts.

    I think he will end up with an OBP over .360-.365, but if he could get over .380...what out...
