    Softy this ones for you

    Here is the guy who you said would never be an every day player or SS. How's that trade working out for you?

    GP  36

    Full seasons ever played = Zero

    Hands of stone, slow release and weak arm

    Physical and mental constitution of a pretzel

    I'd say your favorite player fits in well on the loser Astros until the Texas heat put him back in his beddy bye.

    Now, Jim, give us a few more rah rah cheerleader threads.

    If you are not softy why did you answer.
    Would you say the same about Tulo, Andrus or Furcal ? Their numbers are the same as Jed's

    I would say that their games played over the last half a decade are more than good ole Jed's.

    I answered because any poster who isn't a NYT drone is called "softy".

    You are a funny one softy......Yes their numbers are consistent However I still believe despite what many had said for the past 3 yrs I stand on my belief that Jed is a MLB SS and that is because he was an excellent SS through out the minors and for the short periods he played for the RS.

    BTW he was the reason that Hanley was being moved to the OF by the RS just before the Bekett/
    Hanley trade.

    BTW, to be a MLB everyday SS it will require actually playing one or more full-time seaons of at least 140 games or more. Jed's about 30 years old, now, and that Texas heat is on the way.

    Re: Softy this ones for you

    Why is this such a debate anyway?

    We all know Lowrie is "talented", that has never been the issue. He hits very well when he's healthy, and it's worth noting that his defense is also at least average, again, when healthy.

    Of course, that's the rub with Lowrie...the Sox gave up on him because a breakdown is always coming, sooner or later. It made lots of sense to include him a deal for anything worthwhile, both to acquire assests and to prevent the team from relying on him in any way (and inevitably getting its heart broken).

    I wish him the best of luck and health, but trading him was certainly the right decision.

    Disagree. Bad Trade as it's turned out.
    Most of his injuries were legit and the mono was a huge setback for him. No doubt he wants to be on the field everyday and I'm happy he is getting his chance to shine, finally.

    I agree about the injuries and mono. It's too soon say if it's a bad trade. Let's see if Melancon comes back and is good. And I'd rather have Aviles at SS because I think Aviles is better.

    But I'm glad he's doing well.

    The other side of the issue is that on another thread hank/softy wants to trade Aviles as well........

    Let's not upset the soft-headed one too much...he's at an all-time high for # of posts and he's been able to keep the same moniker for almost 6 months without being banned for the 98th time...those are both personal bests for him...keep up the good work softy and thanks for the entertainment...face

    571 I almost always agree with your take but I think you are way off on this one, to sell at a low point is almost never a good idea

    Re: Softy this ones for you

    How many games played are required for Lowrie to be included with other everyday MLB SS? If it's more than about 90 games per season, or part-time for tired players with anxiety disorders in hot climates, I don't think the elite MLB AS SS Jed Lowrie should qualify. But you clearly are enamored with him.

    Bill Hall, who I was told was out of baseball, has a current OBP of .545 as a member of the AL East leading Baltimore Orioles.

    It's a bad trade, unless you forget that it also freed up SS for Mike Aviles, who has been having a surprising season as well.

    I suppose we could have bumped Lowrie to 3B or 1B, since we only have a minor logjam at those positions.

    Melancon has a whopping 2IP under his belt in Boston.  Granted, two remarkably horrific IP, but its still a very small sample size.  There is plenty of time befre we know who got the better of this trade...
