    Game 1 @ Yankees  Red Sox win and I guaranteed the win.

    2 huge mistakes from Manger John, that, fortunately, didn't cost the game:

    Positioning Middlebrooks way off the line with 2 outs, on the double by Cervelli. Up 4-0, against Cervellie, move Middlebrooks to 3 steps off the line and move JBJJ in 4 steps and 3 steps towards the line.

    Up 4-2, v. CC, not putting the squeeze play on for the correct starting SS and weak hitter Iglesias. Too early and wrong score for pinch hitter, but nothing to lose perfect time to put the squeeze play on. Iglesias displayed his bunt skill with the bunt single, earlier in the game.

    Plays of the game:

    JBJJ with the walk off of CC and reaches 2nd on the infield single

    JBJJ with the catch on Cano, bases with runners on

     

    The ESPN broadcast team did an excellent job. Aaron Boone is excellent, thank goodness Joe Morgan hasn't been on the ESPN ariways, lately. All of them pointed out that JBJJ was the MVP for this game, without getting a hit. Charisma and poise, something that only Ortiz had provided over the last 4 seasons.

    Priceless moment: Late innings images of an empty Yankees stadium with hotdog wrappers blowing all over the place

    As I stated, against the overwhelming "12 days and 9 games and one year of control" minions that dominated this Board, Bradley did in fact change the face of the loser Red Sox brand of billion dollars and zero playoff wins. There was energy, excitement, and hope has returned.

    Iglesias is just an artist at SS, after nearly a decade of watching butchers revolve through the "management wants a slugging SS" door.

    Despite Yankees missing key parts that will return to help the offense, this game will be one of the highlights of the 2013 season. I hope it won't THE HIGHLIGHT.

    Thanks, DG, and I thank goodness for your objective and well thought out posts, even when we disagree. Please include your summary, or things from these games that stick out in your mind. You have great insight. And thanks for supporting the campaign not to do the 12 days and 9 games year of control bean counting on Bradley. He will struggle at the plate, but what he brings to the table on both sides of the ball and his energy and charisma is what changes the face of a team.

    Bradley hustled into second base to beat the throw the same as Nava did the other day in spring training.  It's positive things like this that don't show up in the box score, yet are immeasurable in helping to win.

    Also, I wonder if Bradley would have caught Ichiro's single to center?

    I gotta say Amp, that I thought he had a chance to get it also. I hope he is not so conservative that he never dives this year. That was a 50 / 50 ball I thought.

    Boomer, I hesitated writing that earlier for fear of being lambasted by the big-time Ellsbury supporters.  But, I honestly, and maybe I'm totally wrong, felt that he chose not to dive for fear of injury.

    Nice win even though we faced Hofstra's lineup.  We need to come out of April with a winning record and this is a good start.

    No question about it. The ball should have been caught, but Ellsbury did the backup steps deer in headlights thing again. Bradley would have broke right to the spot and caught the ball standing up. I didn't mention it because it fortunately didn't cost the game.

     



    go watch the play again. the ball split the gap between Ells and ShaVic... and why would Ells back up when the ball was a bloop in front of him and to his left??

     

    that's exactly what Ells did, the ball was not catchable unless you laid out for it... and even then, it's unclear if anyone would come up with it.


    if you going to try and bash ellsbury at least do it when it is deserved... but then again, you don't need a reason to bash Ells.

    1 hour, 35 minutes into the game. bottom of the 4th. Lesters 71st pitch. No way Ells is at fault for not catching that ball... I watched it from both the YES and NESN feed. no way he misplayed it, it was just a bloop to the perfect spot. tool.

    "You did forget to mention that Ells was 3/6 this afternoon."

    Umm no he most certainly did not forget it. It's just not relevant to his myopic narrative. 

    That said softy this was a good post overall, thanks.
