    Gotta like the fire Ciriaco brings to the team...he WANTS to play.  The Sox need a bunch of players like him with fire for attitudes.

It was insanity by Ben.

    Lets put it this way, when I was watching the team without Ciriaco the game was shut off more than once due to boardom.  He puts the word "excitement" in perspective so the more energy and crafty vets like Pod the better.

    Ciriaco should not be DH under ANY circumstances.  Now if he were to reaplce Aviles at SS, I wouldn't care.  In fact, I'm all for it, at least for now.

    Nava also shouldn't DH.  He should probably be demoted so the Sox can call up Lavarnway and let him try his hand at DH.  I really don't get why this has not happened beyond maybe that the FO has lost almost all of their faith in Lavarnway, to the point where they don't even want to jeopardize his trade value by having him face actual MLB pitching...

    In Response to Re: No complaints today about DH???? : I have been talking Pods and Linares over Nava and Sweeney for a month now. I don't get it.  Neither one has been productive for quite a while now.  I like them both and wish them well but seriously...change it up.

    A month  More like 2 years, at lest with regards to Linares.


    Persoanlly, I have verylow expectations rom Linares, but really, what is at stake in letting him be Carl Crawford's right-handed platoon partner who gives his elbow rest? Try it, Ben. Its free. you can even FA Melancon to make room. It's very possible no one will claim him.

    I would be not upset if Melancon released, same with Punto, and Nava dropped down.

    I was not refering to any one particular person but to the thread about a week ago lambasting BV for using the guys he had as DH. Mainly because they had not hit well.

    Maybe with Gomez, Nava and others it comes down to options available I don't know.
    I agree PC should be at SS..
    As for Lavarnaway no way he should come up unless he is going to catch every day. He needs to work his D so he can be the future catcher of the RS

    I don't think Lavarnway would have been too hurt emotionally, or even progress wise, had he been brought up to what amounts to a cup of Starbucks. He did it last year and did it well I thought. Also, as I've said in previous threads, it would not have been so bad to have the 3rd catcher so that the Sox had the option of allowing Salty to DH and Shoppach to catch with Lavarnway as an emergency man.

    The 3 catcher thing would have been a short term thing too. Just long enough for Ortiz to get off the DL.

    Ciracio has both power and speed.  I'm sure he can teach Crawford a few things here and there.

    When's the earliest Lava can be called up and not lose a year of team control on the back end of his years of service with Boston (more likely a prime year)?

    good question

    what are the rules to qualify as a Super 2?  and how many games did he play last year?

    I'd think you could call him up on Sept 1 and and still have him for 2013, 2014, and 2015 before he goes to ARB........

    I think September games do not count, but I am wondering about August games.

    Actually the person you should be calling out is Danny-boy. In his last article he whined about Pedro DHing.

    You mean CHB? If he knew anything about baseball he might be dangerous.

    Well notin, I'm glad you finally changed your opinion a bit anyway on Ciriaco.  When I first mentioned he should be here instead of Aviles or Punto you said he would never help.

    I like the guy for a lot of reasons and hes fun to watch.

    A good line-up tonight. It will be tweaked when Ortiz comes back, lof course, but I think Pedro is our new SS, and that the RF and C spots will depend on the opposing pitcher. All in all, much more predictible than so far this year.

    I have noticed you and I are agreeing a lot more often than in the past.

    My personal theory is that you have simply gotten smarter.   And my really egotistical theory is that you got smarter by learning from me...

    If by power, you mean "no power", then yes, he has power and speed.
