    the jacoby effect

    from the first time jacoby got on the field for the redsox jacoby provided

    a spark for the team.the sox lost that spark and did not replace it.

    i know its early but this team is lacking emotion that champions have.

    they must find it soon or they will play like this all year.

    they are fat cats.

    There is a reason why it is tough to repeat.  Each team the sox play will play above their expectations.  I would not pull the panic button yet. The only thing which has my concern at the moment is Carp's attempt to steal second yesterday.

    Sorry, I checked Fangraphs, and the Red Sox were 3rd in the league in emotions.

    To your point, it was a split poll.  They ranked a little high on players sharing their feelings (Badenhop and Mujica ranked 1/2 in hugging) and a little low on 'emotion that champions have'.  Most of that was due to an expected regression from Papi for not smashing a phone into little pieces.

    And to think some thought losing him would be no big deal.

    One of the things we struggles with from post Wade Boggs to Johnny Damon (11 long seasons) was having a bona fide lead off hitter. 


    It's terrible to lose Jacoby but da ca$h man overpaid for him enormously. 

    JBJ seems to be viable option in CF and I believe we will find our lead off hitter in due time (Vic, Boggy, JBJ, Pedey, Sizemore). 

    We can never replace Jacoby (for now) but we can come close in CF and Lead Off while re-llocating resources to other facets of our team (eg starting pitching, some more power).


    Also, I think we have 5 guys in our line up who will hit 10 HRs and swipe 20 which is really a very nicely balanced team

    Vic, Pedey, JBJ, Boggy, Sizemore
