    If the Sox sat every player who is in a slump right now we would be looking at Pawtucket...and they were eliminated from the playoffs.

    Re: Pedroia is killing us

    I will tell you who has killed us and it is not Pedroia.  Saltamacchia is 3 for his last 39.  With mucho strikeouts, he has been pathetic.  Even though it was a trade please put that in Theo's column when considering his success rate with personnel.

    Re: Pedroia is killing us

    The Red Sox are losing as a team and it's easy to find the player or two who are struggling statistically over the most recent period of time.  What has really killed the Sox over the course of this season are a rash of key injuries (I know that good teams supposedly can overcome them which is ridiculous because they usually do not) and year long underperformances or injuries to a handful of important players (Lackey, Crawford, Buchholz, Wakefield, Albers, Wheeler, Okajima and Jenks).  Games are won and lost daily over a period of 6 months and had some of those guys performed like they should have, the Sox would be in a very good place today instead of fretting about whether or not they will be playing in October.   A major league baseball team each year consists of players who do what you expect them to, players who do more than you expect them to and players who do less than you expect.  The Sox unfortunately have had more of the latter than the former and that may result in a disappointing regular season.

    Wilcy,
    The end of season counts a lot when you are collapsing. This team open badly and is now showing how deeply flawed a team can be when they are for the most part overpaid.   The lax coach, the rash of injuries which point to poor fitness, the terrible chemistry due to ill advised free agent signings, and the front office following the Yankee model are all reasons we stink.  We are the antithesis of the 2004 team and if you don't see it don't be surprised to see it go on next year as well.

      That's the point.  They would not have anyone and that's how baseball works.  You hope that the non producers of late perform the way they can and have.  Non producers on teams which are playing poorly like the Sox change from one day to the next.  It could be Bard, Lester, Lackey, Pedroia, Gonzalez, Crawford, Wakefield, Saltalamacchia, Albers, Wheeler, Scutaro, etc.  Just as winning is the great elixir, losing is often contagious.

    Re: Pedroia is killing us

    Pedroia has done so much that to blame him now is just not fair.  Putting him at cleanup is really asking too much of him. Let him hit second , as he is most used to doing.  When a team is sinking , as the Sox are , there is plenty of blame to go around.  Pedroia is the least of the problems.

    You mentioned the fitness a few times if I'm not mistaken.  Youk looks unfit, but the games he missed might be as a result of wearing down due to change of position.  Crawford missed the same amount as Youk and is in great shape.  Scutaro missed more than either of them and looks like he's in good shape.

    On the pitching side, it's jenks, who's always been really fat.  Dice had arm issues which do not look fitness related.  Buchholz probably had the spine issue for a long time.

    Despite the fact that Salty is struggling at the plate right now... the acquisition of Salty is a definitive win 4 Theo. He has outperformed expectations of him this year, and is probably the Sox catcher for the next 3 years.
