    Then, they don't have a prayer, if he's reinjured, due to lack of rest.

     

    A DH runs to 1B 3-4 times a day. My grandma can do that blindfolded. If papi gets hurt, it won't be due to not having to jog to 1B 3-4 times the night before.

     

    If the Sox have to rely on one offensive player that much, they're screwed anyway. 

    Exactly. That's what I've been saying. We put all our egss in the Papi/Dempster basket, now they alone are our hope.. sad, but true.

     

    The Sox played what, 18-19 games  without him, in April?

    They seemed to do ok.

    And, you think the next 18-19 games Papi sits out will be "OK"?

    Can your grandma hit HRs with a strained lat?

    You do realize now that that is why he sat out Sunday, right?

    If the rest of the lineup hits somewhere close to what they're capable of, yes, I do.

    But, if they manage Ortiz correctly, we'll never have to find out.

    You are out of touch. Nice try, with the bugaboo "Lost his pop".

    So, you are admitting your statement that "Papi no longer has pop" is a bugaboo?

    The issue is that he can't produce season long numbers. It was never "just the heel and you divert", it's you diverting from the reality that he's old and has broken down physically to a part-time player. Bad wheel, bad wrist, lat, pulls and strains, etc.

    No, the issue is DH'ing is no harder than washing the dishes or doing laundry... things my gandma never gets a day off from.

    You're right, Moon.

    The extra day off didn't help him heal at all.

    Yes, and "the next night" is the point. Manager John needs to keep him in the status of a 100 to 110 game part-time player. If they go for more, he'll break down.

      " NOW ITS THE OBLIQUE"  !!!!   THE END IS NEAR ......37-42 AND OUT OF MILKSHAKES !!!!

    My grandma washes the dishes everyday.

    The Red Sox medical staff obviously prescribed a very specific schedule of days off for Ortiz.  I'm sure Farrell would rather pencil him in every day but he's following the schedule.

    Yeah, but can she turn around a Matt Moore fastball?

    I have to meet your grandmother, and see if she can meet that schedule. Dishwaster loading and unloading doesn't count.



    It's harder than being a DH.

    She does windows too.

    We can't possibly make the playoffs with Papi taking a day off a week and Dempster "fading in the dog days of summer".

    We barely have a chance with bot doing well and playing nearly every chance they get.

    lot of unfactual assumptions creating this silly argument.
