    RF WAR 2012 + '13

    Sox   22nd  1.8

    Reddick   10th   4.4

    Batting average, have we time warped back to 1982?



    Sorry.

    Reddick's OPS is 426.

    Better?

    Josh is hitting .125 now with a .533 OPS.

    He hit .215 with a .647 OPS the second half of last year.

    I love a great fielder, and Fenway's RF heightens our need to always have a good one out there, but that's a pretty poor OPS for an OF'er over the last 350-400 PAs.

    His BA and OPs over his last 160 PAs or so is about .150/.515.

    Imagine if somone like Iggy hit that poorly in even a smaller sample size...

    Undecided



    Exactly.  When the playoffs rolled around last year, he was hitting eigth in their lineup.

    Reddick is a solid player who was good value at his current contract.  But he's VERY replacable.  I'd take Shane.

    Reddick's career OPS+ is 99.  That's sub-par for a corner outfielder.

    While true, his glove and arm make up for that at least to some extent.

    The worst part of the Reddick deal was the years of team control, not so much the players.

    We needed a closer once we decided to put Bard in the rotation.

    I agree, Moon.  But having "years of team control" is more important to a small market team like Oak.  They cant go overpay a Victorino, we can.

    This post is correct.  I pick on Reddick a bit too much.  It just bothers me how people make it look like that was the worst trade of the century.  Reddick (now with a 2 season sample) is what he is.  A .240 / 25 HR hitter who can play a good defensive corner outfield.  He's a solid starter, sure, but not a star.

    Guys like that are necessary , but replacable.  We dont have to hold onto our solid prospects.  Only the elite ones.

    Reddick isn't what he is - not yet.  He will be over the next 5-7 years, which means if he's slightly above average from age 22 - 25, he'll probably be very good from age 26 - 33.  I don't think he's going to be a superstar, but it's not hard at all to see him as Jayson Werth with a better glove.
