    The New "Yaz"

    One of ESPN's so-called gurus has likened this Bradley kid to Derek Jeter! He does take into consideration that Bradley plays the outfield and bats lefty. If this guru had been around a lttle longer, he might have remembered Carl Yastrzemski!

    Now, there's a match!

    Well, I'm going to go with another lefty who also played the outfield, centerfield no less, was fast as lightning and electric as a youngster ... Freddy Lynn!

    how does this comment from buster deserve a slap

     

    “He is a blessing for the Red Sox, in terms that they have this type of player with this type of personality at the beginning of the year,” Olney said. “He’s so mature. He looks like he’s going to be their version of Derek Jeter, he really does. I don’t mean as a player — I mean in terms of being able to handle things when he gets up.”

    Naw, he's definitely a Kirby. Short and somewhat squat with a great positive attitude and solid ability to hit and defend. If we can keep him under 240 lb we have a pocket Kirby Puckett.

    I think thats quite a compliment made by Buster. He wasnt comparing the type of player, but the personality that most baseball fans respect. Pretty cool thing to say IMO.

    If you were to compare JBJ to former sox players, Id go with spacemans choice, Freddy Lynn.

    Crazy talk.  We just need a solid player who can contribute at bat and in the field.  If his remarkable ST stats only level off slightly to, say, an OPS of .800 or more, he will have made remarkable jump from AA.  If he starts in LF on opening day, he will be a real contrast to Gomes, who looks and fields like a DH.

    Huh??  They never won a WS.....they gave us a ton of heart  breaks and the 'days' you refer of did not last long at all.  Did you even watch them back then?  Give me the 2002 - 2008 Sox teams ANYDAY.  THOSE WERE THE DAYS!!

    The kid is already going to have enough pressure.  Let's not annoint him the next Jeter or Yaz just yet.....2 of the best players of their generation.  We have a prospect that has looked very solid this Spring.  He has been an OB machine and could develop into something special.  The best part about the kid is everything from his neck up.  If Bard had the same brain maybe we would be talking about a lights out closer right now......

    Yeah I hear ya. Maybe I over-reacted a bit!  This kid has just been talked about so much by every facet of the boston market...and now he's being talked about a ton on the national market that I just get nervouse we might be jinxing him! HA!  Let's face it....it's not every day a young upstart fights so hard in one of the top 3 media markets for baseball that he will beat out a bunch a veterans to play the most famous left fields in sports.  It's a great story!..................I just hope he makes the team.....it could be a PR disaster but more importanlty weaken the team....

    One thing about this kid is he doesnt seem to put any expectations on himself. He just goes out and plays the game. He certainly has a good head on his shoulders.

    I think he does. With Papi on the DL the decision is really between JBJ and Sweeney, which should be a no brainer.

    big yet no power

    He probably will though.  Gotta figure the Sox brass will send him down when Ortiz comes back to start with the '20 day thing'.

     is not always about winning a WS althoughit helps. Back in 67 we had no hope then by the AS break we had hope. From then on every yar we had hope some more than others.
     Prior to 67 they were lucky for many years to crack 80  wins after that yr 80 became the lower of the amount of wins.

    BTW enjoying the season as a whole can be as good as winning a WS. 2003 was disapointing at the end but was a great season overall

    Well, I'm going to go with another lefty who also played the outfield, centerfield no less, was fast as lightning and electric as a youngster ... Freddy Lynn!  

     



    Bradley isnt fast as lightning though.  I feel like we can do better on the comparison.
