    Posted by dgalehouse[/QUOTE] Nah, the best one I saw tonight was to have intentionally walked Thome and go to a RH. But then again Aceves wasn't sharp and Albers pitched last night and they really are trying to avoid 80+ appearances for Bard. But that at least wasn't "he left Lester in because he wants the players to like him".

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Sox/Twins Wednesday night game thread : Funny, Lloyd.  The second guessers are out in full force now, and I keep thinking about Bill Simmons BJ line from the article I posted last night.
    Posted by joel49[/QUOTE]

    That was the greatest line ever ... only wish we could repost it verbatim here.

    And it's so true ... some of these people could be eating a steak dinner on a beach in Maui with a bikini-clad Jennifer Aniston, who promises to do whatever they want, with an endless supply of beer in the cooler ... and they'd find something to complain about.

    "Hey, Jennifer, what's with all the sand on this beach? And could  you put something on?".

    I'll say this: The umpiring in this series was crap. Not saying for a second that's why we lost tonight, but McClellan last night and whoever the guy was tonight were awful.

    I don't want to be liked, it's a formula for dishonesty.

    I guess the Ellsbury MVP talk will have to take a day or two off. Of course, Ortiz as a Dh can't be an MVP candidate becuase he's a Dh. Dh's aren't eligible and are inferior player.

    Re: Sox/Twins Wednesday night game thread

    Several years ago Ortiz and A-Rod, by then a Yankee, were having great years, and the Globe asked for opinions on who should be MVP.  I said A-Rod for two reasons:  he played 3B; he played in more games (just one more, I think).  Ortiz is still a very good hitter, but I just can't see voting for a DH as MVP as long as there are position players with seasons as good or almost as good.

    In this case, Ortiz's numbers aren't all that great.  AGon is having a much better year, and I think even Pedroia is having a better year.  Ellsbury, batting leadoff, has almost as many rbi's and way more runs scored. 

    Ortiz doesn't need to be an MVP candidate to be valuable to this team, which he is.  Last night was just one more example of why that is so, even though the Sox lost. 

    The Ellsbury MVP talk is just that, something Bob Ryan wrote about on a slow day.  And, really, the point of his article was to show that leadoff hitters had in fact been voted in as MVP in the past.    I personally don't like the Ellsbury MVP talk because I think it's a distraction, plus I can't support MVP for a one year wonder.  Right now, I don't think Jake is even the best centerfielder in the AL, let alone the MVP.  But he is having a terrific year, one that is benefitting both him and his team.
