    At least he didn't clog up the basepaths too much last night.

     

    Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

    In response to softlaw2's comment:

    This team was built for Ortiz to provide year long slugging. That's not going to happen. He's a punch and judy hitter with no more bat speed than Iglesias, who doesn't have the Constiution to sustain season long slugging production. Get it over and put him on the field for what he's paid to do, and if he breaks down then 60 day DL him and allow the team to settle in and adjust to a style of baseball that relies on speed and top defense. This team isn't going to get the season home record job done when it comes to trying to outslug the AL, and bottom feeding off weak slugging teams like the Rays isn't going to offset the problem. The sooner they expose Ortiz's patent infirmities and adjust, the better. 

    81 games are played in Fenway, and no more than 18 games are played in any other single venue. Losing to the O's and hapless Royals at home is a serious problem that the current early record doesn't erase. This team isn't going to get it done with Ortiz slugging, even though the GM constructed it that way. The sooner the realization and adjustments are made the greater the chance the team and the manager adjusts and tries to make the playoffs with a team character of team defense and speed and adequate overall pitching staff performance.

    Because of Fenway, this GM is incompetent in understanding value and allocation of labor costs in trade and FA market. This is how great managers earn their money, despite the GM. My mind is still open on Toronto bust manager John, who does seem to understand confidence and approach to pitching. Beyond that, my mind is still open. We'll see, but I'm watching how he handles and adjusts to the fact Ortiz aint gonna get it done in the slugging department.




    Blast from the past!

    Amazingly, 4 of them have come after turning 31 and 3 after turning 34. He also has had 28/99 at age 33 and 29/96 at age 35.

    So, if you lower the cutoffs to 28+/98+, here's how Papi's big seasons have gone:

    5 straight from age 27-31

    23/89 in 2008 (only 109 games played)

    5 out of 6 seasons from age 33-38

    (The one season he didn't hit 28/98 was 2012, but that year at age 36, he hit 23/60 in just 90 games with a 1.026 OPS- his 3rd best of his career.)

    His 2014 OPS is now up to .876.

    His career 162 line is .285  36  118.

    His career 162 playoff line is .295  34  119.

    His career 162 WS line is .455  35 160.

    I'll never understand why some clowns can't wait for this guy to decline and retire.

    Never an actual compliment to Papi... just sarcastic jibberish.

     

    Ohh, if Papi were just an ex-Marine, red-neck,  pale-faced...

    Papi has had a great year this. Granted the average in down, but with 35hrs-104rbis this year imagine what production might have been like with a half way decent lineup surrounding him. Might we be looking at 125-135rbis season, just supposing.

    Most of Papi's PAs have come in the 3 slot.

    Here are the Sox numbers in the slots around him this year:

    1) OBP .327

    2) OBP .304

    4) BA .243/ OPS .760

    Just imagine...
