    Suarez debut begs the question, Why Not Mookie?

    This Suarez kid started for the Tigeers last night and looked like Nomar in his prime! The kid had a couple of cups of coffee in AAA after hitting under .300 in AA. As the Fox commentators mentioned last night, "the best players are in AA, etc. etc". Why wait with Betts? LF is a desert. Stick him out there and see what happens. Put Nava in right against RH pitchers. Limit Gomes and Sizemore to PH (or run). Since Betts seems to do well in CF. Stick JBJ in RF or send him back to Pawtucket for the rest of the year.


    We are NOT the 1914 Boston Braves, and 10 back of two good teams (Toonto and Baltimore) is asking too much. Let's look at it as a giant spring training, and see what guys like Mookie can do.

    While it would be good to see Mookie play for the Sox now, I think its best that he stays in AAA to hone his skills there in preparation for when we become a relevant team again.

    WE ARE ALL JUST POPPYSEEDS IN THE BAKERY OF LIFE

    If you've given up on the season, why would you want to start Mookie's clock?

    And while I appreciate what Saurez has accomplished in his pro career last night, remember Romine also got  a hit in his first game with Detroit, and he just got replaced.

    I dont think Mookie is far off.  If he tears up AAA, I could maybe see July.

    If Suarez shines at shortstop, we should inquire this off season what it would take to get Iglesias. 

    Stabbed by Foulke.

    But then the people who hated the trade would have to go back to hating Iggy.

    But I'd have no problem taking him back.

    [object HTMLDivElement].   I did hate the trade.  But I never hated Iggy. He is one of the best defensive shortstops I have seen. And, he did hit .300.  But he doesn't have to hit that much to be valuable. I would take him back in a minute. I always looked forward to a left side of  Iglesias and Bogaerts.  I hope his leg problems are not a chronic thing. He is a pleasure to watch.

    Ben is secretly hoping Iggy never plays another game.  It's the only way this trade is going to look good in retrospect.  

    The BBWA bailed Ben out once by not naming Iggy the ROY.  Maybe now Iggy will bail Ben out again by being chronically injured.

    Re: Suarez debut begs the question, Why Not Mookie?

    Mookie has also seen his numbers go down quite a bit, albeit a very small sample size.  After a HUGE start to the season he was batting around. .299 in his last couple weeks at Portland.  And since coming to Pawtucket he has seen his AVG dip from .355 to .269, his SLG drop from .551 to .385 and his OPS drop from .994 to .791

    Please note, I still think Mookie is a stud, I think he is good enough to start on a first division team and I think he has a really good chance to make all star teams in his prime.  I'm merely suggesting what I've been saying all along.  I said a month ago that if he made the jump to the big leagues he would see a dramatic drop in his production.  Well we are seeing a drop now in Pawtucket, does anyone think it wouldn't be more pronounced in the majors????

    Mookies time will come, and relatively soon but not today and not tomorrow.

    The dude hasn't taken about 20 at bats above the AA level.  We realistically have ZERO ideal what he could do at the MLB level.  He's also played in less than 10 games in the outfield so we have no ideal how he looks defensively out there.  Have you seen him play the outfield???? I haven't.  If I had to guess I'd say/hope he looks good out there and will only get better but do we REALLY even have a clue to how good he looks out there????

    Like someone said, he starting to cool off with his hot hitting.  Plus he just played in CF in the last five games per reading boxscore from one game to another in the past two weeks.  He played alot at 2b before moving to CF which he was fortunated to play there cuz Nava just got called up last week.  

    Also he is not on the 40 man roster which mean, Ben C need to make a cut.  With too many guys on DL, it is too hard to make a cut.  Wait until at least two to three guys to come off of DL, then Ben C could DFA someone to make a room for Betts
