    Re: Standing Myth Debunking Thread

    i really don't get the hate of Ellsbury and Lowrie. they both are doing great this season. and Ellsbury did help us win a ws. i will admit to being biased as Ellsbury is my favorite position player on the team.

    i keep seeing lowlights of Upton dogging it on the field. why is it we would want a headcase on the team? missing Manny's antics much?

    Ellsbury is head case who dogs it in the field and takes a full year off. Upton is not a head case and would find the same vitriol from most Red Sox fans that Ellis Burks found. That's why I want him here, so I can see the further manifestation of the latest chapter of fan bias based upon how a player looks while posing for a picture.

    stop dancing around it and say what you mean.

    Boston fans have embraced Ortiz, Pedro Martinez, Kevin Garnett, Randy Moss, Andre Tippett, Paul Pierce... etc - etc - etc.

    but by not actually saying it - you can deny it, right?

    Boston fans skewered Ortiz, Pedro, Martinez, KG, Moss, Tippet and Pierce, depending upon whether they werent playing at a high level at the time.

    softy's answer to Boston racism...

    ...bash white "good ole boys" based on their race, education, or belly size.

    Yeah, that's a proven method for ending profiling.

    Whats disturbing is how important this all seems to Softie. Its coming off as the first thing he thinks about in the morning and the last thing he thinks about before going to bed. Its just wierd, stalkish behavior.

    My definition of "dogging it" is lack of hustle.  Unless I am missing something Ellsbury does not fit that description.  Even if you think he sucks, that doesn't mean he doesn't hustle.  When he stole home on The Yanks, you made fun of him because he tripped as he dove headfirst.  This was not lack of hustle.  When he got doubled off 2nd this year you bashed him.  It was a baserunning mistake but not lack of hustle.  Will we have to go through this the whole season no matter how well he performs?  If he goes 1-3 he should have gone 2-3.  If he goes 2-4 he should have gone 3 for 4.  If he hits gap doubles he doesn't have homerun power.  If he hits homeruns he should not be swinging for the fences.  Where does it all end?

    jim, he is scrambling because almost every player he has bashed continously for years is doing well, and almost all of "his guys" are on the DL or underperforming.... but hey, BHall went 4-4 in a game this year and Coco has a .297 OBP with 14 SBs in 19 attempts, so "all is good" in the clown's bizzaroworld.

    [QUOTE]Another silly OP from softlaw SSR.  He claims myths that, for the most part, no one ever espoused, and then says there aren't true.   Kind of like claiming that Ted Williams loved the Boston press or that Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz weren't really that effective hitting 3d and 4th for the Sox.  So I hereby debunk both of those myths.  The Ellsbury fixation continues to amaze.  He is having a terrific year--third on the team in rbi's (with 3 more than Ortiz), tied with Gonzalez and for 5th in the AL in runs scored, leads the AL in SB's, plays almost errorless ball (2 errors since he came up in 2007) in the outfield, and has definitely nailed down the leadoff spot for what now seems to be the best offense--or close to it--in MLB.  Oh, and he has played in every game to date--same as Gonzalez--and no other Sox player has.  And softlaw SSR wants to dump him because he ain't Ted Williams or Ichiro or whoever.  Go figure.

    Nope, harness claimed the orioles were for real and were going to finish in 2nd place in the division.

    [QUOTE]Hall is in the latter stages of his MLB career. Lowrie and Ellsbury would be in the pool for a potential trade for a solid young MLB RH OF'er like Kemp or Upton. Hall went 4 for 4 against the Dodgers, and, as a solid platoon/utility player has the glowing vote of confidence from both Tito and Mills. Hall was hated in Boston, but was ready for whatever work Tito gave him. He did not need tired days off, nor extra images for minor injuries.

    Hall was not hated in Boston.  Hall was loved in Boston.

    Is it a myth that the Red Sox FO read Softlaw's posts and actually apply his ideas when making decisions?
