    Without a doubt the correct move. Reddick has earned starting time, now he just has to keep it. Drew's skillset has clearly diminished.

    Re: Reddick in right tonight-Tonight's lineups

    From ESPN:
    The Mariners are chasing history, but not the kind any team wants to make. Nearly 100 games into the season, the batting average of their whole team is (gulp) .223. So unless they start mashing, they're going to obliterate the record for worst average by an AL team in the DH era. That record, if you want to get technical, is .226, by Otto Velez's 1981 Blue Jays. But that was a strike year. So if you count only full seasons, the Mariners have almost no shot to avoid that record -- which is .235, by Tony Solaita's 1976 Angels. To beat that, the Mariners would have to hit about .255 the rest of the way. And don't bet your family Space Needle pass on that. Of the nine position players on the roster with more than 100 at-bats, six of them are hitting .229 or lower.


    Mariners

    Oh, and one more thing: The Mariners are rampaging along with a pathetic .288 on-base percentage. So that means they're about to become the first AL team to rack up on-base percentages under .300 in back-to-back seasons since the 1966-67-68 White Sox, Senators and Indians did it three years in a row, before the mound was lowered to prevent offensive abominations like this.

    What happened to Jack Cust? He hit pretty well with Oakland last year.

    Tonight isn't about Drew or Reddick, it's about Felix and Lackey. 
    If the Mariners "who hit 223 as a team" hit Lackey he has nothing to complain about but his own performance.

    It certainly did Beltre no favors. Chone Figgins either.

    There isn't a more expensive #6 hitter in the history of baseball. That's the bad news. The other bad news is that he's not even one of the better #6 hitters.

    Yup he's been a disappointment for sure....but I seriously doubt he will hit .240 for the rest of the year let alone his tenure in Boston.  Unless of course you feel that career averages are completely meaningless

    You tell us to listen to career averages only when it suits your agenda.

    Crawford had a single bad month for the Sox, and it was BAD. He batted .208 in April.

    Since then his lowest BA in a month has been .278. He will return to his career form and the Sox will be very fortunate to have him batting 6th in the lineup. Crawford makes this team better, end of story.

    Career averages are only meaningful when applied to Bellsbury, I thought everyone knew that.

    I have this weird feeling right now,  I'm going to go out on the limb and say Lackey pitches a great game tonight.  No way he's better but I think he can outdual Hernandez tonight.

    The Mariners 223 team BA should give him some confidence.

    No, the worse news is that some clown wants to trade our .370 OBP guy and move CC to leadoff.

    Reddick deserved a chance and is proving he can handle RF.  I would still like to see him hit a few more lefties before being convinced hes an every day player. 

    Regardless there is no need to trade Josh, SS, pitching and maybe a rental RH bat are the real needs at the moment.

    In Response to Re: Reddick in right tonight-Tonight's lineups:
    No, the good news is that Crawford and Kemp is better than Crawford and Ellsbury, and Kemp's skills mean that a .300 OBP leadoff hitter doesn't matter when you add a guy who destroys LH pitching and has an elite OBP. The bad news is that idiots have a lot of free time to drivel.

    biilyboy, I have to give you credit for trying so hard to get rid of Ells but the more you bash him the better he seems to get. 

    Maybe you should start praising him :)
