    In response to softlaw2's comment:

    A high average doesn't make up for a lower OBP, unless that profile has a high slugging profile.

    The Red Sox will be keeping Bradley, just like they kept Ellsbury. But, with what's on the books and the farm, Ellsbury will not be back with the Red Sox because he's a poor value and fit for 2014 and intermediate future.



    i never said that. I said a high average can make up for the fact that one does not draw a load of walks. Someone with a high average and draws a ton of walks will have an insane OBP. Ells does not have an insane OBP. He does have a good OPB due to the fact that his average is high and he does not draw a ton of walks... He draws a decent amount, but if his average wasn't so high his OBP would merely be modest.

    The reverse is also true.

    please keep up softy.

    Would Bradley Jr, Ellsbury, Victorino be the best defensive outfield in baseball?  Warrants some thought.

     

     



     Gomes was promised the starting left field job. Not fair to reneg on that.

     



    he was brought in to platoon Lf... not start.

    In response to softlaw2's comment:

     He does have a good OPB

    For a leadoff hitter and a player who has averaged very few homers per season, his OBP is not impressive at all.




    Unfortunately his 2 injured years brought that OBP down and should be taken into consideration, although I understand you wont do that...Personally, I wouldnt count an 18 game season. He would be around a .360-.370 OBP for his career, which is perfectly acceptable for a leadoff hitter.

    When you sign a contract with an MLB team you're agreeing to do what the team asks of you. Within reason of course.
