    Re: Terry's obsession with McD is frustrating

    PLEASE!!!!   D'Mac, to his credit, has come through in the last two nights, but one can not be expected to forget about how awful he has been game in & game out for 120+ games.  Pretty big sample?  Pretty consistent? 

    I like the kid!  I really appreciate what he did for us LAST YEAR!  WE NEED somebody who can pick us up right now, & any honest Sox fan would agree that D'Mac is NOT THE GUY! 

    It's OK to have an honest critique, albeit fatal, with one or two of our guys!!!!

    Doesn't mean we're just being negative.  It's realistic!  BASED ON HARD DATA!

    p.s.  This is a ridiculous conversation!  If we're all being honest, NONE OF US would choose to put D'Mac out there!  I will assume Tito's hands are tied????

    You lost a lot of credibility in the thread title and OP because you launched into the attack mode without checking your facts, then shot back that you can't be bothered to check facts before attacking Francona. 

    Now you're attacking in all directions in hope of maybe making a point, but it ain't working, at least not on this thread.  Try again tomorrow maybe.

    Tito has no choice. Imagine how it was with Cameron and DMac. I believe they will get a righty bat before the end of 8/31

    I think that you can write off Crazy4Sox as a Red Sox fan. Put him onto ignore and do yourself a favor. Better yet use your ignore button often. Weeding is a fulltime job in here.

    I agree!  It's doubly difficult because of the unspoken component working the reverse magic of Softy's constant & insufferable refrain!

    I really like the kid!  I've been pulling for him!!!  He really helped get things going yesterday, after Lav. went 0 - 2 w bases loaded!  BUT!!!!!   This just can't go on much longer!  We could afford to carry him for the past 2 months when things were rolling along!  NOW!!!!   WE NEED SOME REAL HELP!!!  I'm not attacking the guy, he's just incapable of giving us the help we desperately need with all the injuries!!! 

    Come on fellas!  Knock off all the other BS!  I think we can agree on this????

    As for Crazy4Sox, it seems to me, that I've read some pretty positive posts from him????  He probably just got frustrated, like the rest of us......  Wasn't following the ins & outs of the pre game stuff...  Hey!  It's summer!!!  If I could get back to the Cape from Oregon, I'd be missing the pre-game after coming from the beach, half watching the game at Clancy's!  Cut the guy a break!

    God!  I wish I could get home!!!!

    REcent mini-succeses or not, the D-Mac experiment is done.  He really would not be difficult to replace.

    I do still wonder why the Sox went after a utility INF at the deadline, but ignored OF depth...

    Crazy4Sox doesn't have very many positive posts but he is not as bad as Alibi Ike. He is Wet Blanket #1. I call him Alibi Gripe.

    Max, he had none to begin with. But Pike's advice of putting him on IGGY is mean.

    here we go again..some 'im- posters' here continue to bash individual players.  Granted he is below the mendoza line, etc, etc...but the reason he is here is because many players have fallen apart with injuries and McD is versatile..can play 7 positions.  So just keep on whining about "certain pitchers" and players you don't like, but stop playing god to things you quite clearly and obviously no absolutely nothing about..get a clue before you whine

    Craze4 is a loose cannon much like Cater. They go off onto a rant before they think. They are loyal first and fail to digest the facts and be reasonable and logical. The fact that they never learn is ample to put them onto ignore - unless you enjoy debating a stone wall. Harness is like a shopkeeper "The customer is always right".

    PawsoxPhil,

    Only a fool would think I'm not a Sox fan just because I stated McD is not a great option off the bench.  Like dirtdog, suggested if every Sox fan was honest about there feelings there would be a lot more realistic posts on our board.  I'm not going to overlook an entire season by covering it up with two hits in three games like some of you.  I'm also not afraid to admit being wrong when a mistake gets made.  Francona had a choice last night to play Reddick in CF and Lowrie who finally had three hits the night before.  Instead he benched Jed in favor of his righty/lefty matchup that rarely works any better for the team.

    Posters who use multiple screen names, can't accept anything but their own beliefs, correct everyones spelling, make excuses through twisted Stats and jump all over fellow fans for any negative thread have the real issues to deal with.

    Sound familiar?

    [QUOTE]I really don't know why we keep putting McD in the lineup.  Sure the guy may get one big hit every four or five games but with Wake or Lackey on the mound you need your best lineup, especially without Papi or Youk out there.  He had a triple last night, hopefully he can do something to help tonight.

    Very good day by DMac today, thats right I gave credit where credit where it was deserved as I normally do.  Also a very nice game by Lavarnway, maybe one or two of his very few doubters will agree?  Or maybe not

    DMac had an .812 OPS vs LHPs last season. Don't "gloss over" that either.

    The problem is, we need 2 RH'd bats in the OF: one for CC and the other for Reddick. Since Tito will never bench CC vs most lefties, DMac is probably all we will have until Sept call ups or beyond.
