    Nava????

    This guy may be the absolute best bargain for the money in major league baseball.  He is a .300 hitter this season, has a great OBP, can play 3 defensive positions quite well, runs the bases well, can hit in any spot in the line up, has 60 RBIs and has only played about 2/3s of the games.

    Of course, he could wear down, but what would his numbers look like if he had played 90% of the games?  Yes, I do realize that he hits much better against right handed pitchers.

    Also on Base in the last 37 straight games.....very impressive especially when you consider he has sat many games while we faced lefties.....he has managed to stay focused and ready everyday he gets in there....a great story

    He's a good man to have on your team. Likes the game. Knows the game. Seems like a good character guy. I like him as a player and a person--he needs to be on the field more. 

    FYI: June 18 was his last HR----lots of doubles----he helped win the Rays game--3-1 with that HR.

    !0 HR's for a corner OF or 1 B not much.

    35 extra base hits in 380 AB's, in 113 Games.

    .300 BA------about an .800 OPS.

    The Sox are 66 and 47 when he plays---Good things happen when he play.

    Dumpster Profile.  Career Minor Leaguer with minor league ceiling.  Any team depending on a guy like this must be in a bridge year.

    From EXTRA BASE Blog

    Stat of the Day: Nava is 13th in the majors with a .387 OBP. His .831 OPS is fifth among American League outfielders.

    There are many people on this board who would have argued that Nava would never be 5th among Red Sox Outfielders in OPS.

    Re: Nava????

    Nava has had an odd second half (post All Star).

    He's batting .353 with a .443 OBP, .515 SLG and .958 OPS and 11 doubles in 26 games and 80 plate appearances.

    However, he has 0 HRs and just 4 RBIs. After June he was on pace for more than 100 RBIs but has just three RBIs in July 70 PA and 4 RBIs in August in 56 PA.

    His plate appearaces per month  are down from the first half but even still, you would think he'd have more. If he stayed on the same RBI pace as he did early in the season, he would have at least 20 more RBIs.

    So what I want to know -- what is his BA with runners on base and RISP since the start of June? For the season, his numbers are great but how good are they for the past two months?

    Re: Nava????

    With his high OBP I prefer him in the 2 slot. When he bats 5th behind Ortiz he finds lots more runners on base but his tendency is not to be aggressive in spots where aggressiveness is called for. Too many times he'll take a first pitch strike right down the middle of the plate and then swing at crap once he's behind in the count. Working a walk is great from the 2 slot but the 5 hitter's job is to drive in runs. Don't get me wrong cause I like everything about the guy, except maybe his base running.

    I've got to think that Nava is a guy who truly appreciates being a Major League Baseball player.
