    Ortiz and the Sox lineup

    Big Papi is beyond question the MVP of the Sox lineup--best OPS, most rbi's, etc, etc. 

    But he is now 0 for 18 over an 8 game sequence--3 at the Giants (he played in 2) and 3 (he played in 1) at the Dodgers, then 2 at home against the Orioles--in which the Sox won 6 of those 8 games, all against decent to very good opponents. 

    We still need him to hit well, but it's also nice to know the Sox can win basically without him, at least on a short term basis. 

    I think it goes without saying the Sox lineup has depth, and the pitching right now is pretty darn good too.

    hopefully he gets his "cold streak" over with now and heats back up for the September run....

    He's hit the ball hard a few times, but not hard enough.

    His back is probably still nagging him.

    Or maybe like somneone else said, he is in a cold spell and just has not been that good.  Possibly time to sit him down and think about the boy wonder Boggie hitting dh for a game.

    You must be giddy, Jackbu.  You got to take a shot at your two favorite whipping boys in the same sentence.  I guess you still haven't looked into those OCD meds yet?

    Re: Ortiz and the Sox lineup

    Were able to win because we have a very balanced lineup. When your best hitter goes onto a little slump like papi is currently in, the team can still sustain momentum. Papi will be back to normal soon. hes been the most consistent hitter this year and like a couple other times this year when he was in a 3-5 game slump, this too will soon pass.

    Thanks for reading the OP--few others did.

    How is suggesting that boggie play dh for a game, taking a shot?  I have said from the beginning that I like this kid but only stress to the posters who only know this kid from the stats they read, that he wouldn't be a game changer and he hasn't.

    as far as Ortiz, is he 0 for 18 or in your world something else.  In addition to 0 for 18 his home run count and rbi count is much less in the second half. David had the chance be clutch last night with bases loaded and failed, something we have seen more of as the season progresses and the last two post seasons.

    If Ortiz goes 0 for again tonight, the dream will soon become a reality.  This is what everyone wants, right?  Everyone wants to see the kid play except if it means sitting a slumping Ortiz?

    Maybe. Since we are trying to figure out causation what caused you to become an internet troll?

    It seems that your definition of an internet troll is anyone who has an opnion different from yours.  Sorry if you get upset from facts, but this is all I have posted here. 

    Yes, Ortiz has had a better year than most including myself predicted.  But his second half numbers are not holding up and his latest first base experiment failed.  His test on how be a teammate also failed.

    Ortiz most likely will break out tonight but if he does not, I doubt Farrell will be much like Tito.

    Big Papi needs a Big Rest; like a 3 or 4 day cruise to Martinique, or wherever. We've all seen him slump (and press) before, but this is serious. Watch that front foot. The last few days it's impossible to predict when it comes off the ground. That suggests he's guessing, and guessing wrong. Anxious to be Big Papi and help his team. Get him off the field for a few days; he always comes back strong! We got along without him (think of the old song) in April, we can again for a few days.
