    yeah that was sick, and no real crow hop either from what i saw/recall

    if we could somehow combine Boggy's bat w/ Bradley's Defense then we'd really have something.

    I think we need a Dewey interview either on WEEI or in the NESN booth tonight.  Maybe w/ Don and Jerry live talking about throwing arms.  That would be pretty cool.  I know Donnie O has a man-crush on Evans.

    I heard about Mays and Clemente never saw them live but did see tape

    Saw the Parker throws in the AS game (one at home and one that got Rice at 3rd)

    Evans - just too many bullets (esp to home) to list

    Mark Whitten had a gun and I recall liking Bruno's arm too

     I know its hard to be patient with Jackie's offense, given how the team offense has struggled.  But, for me, I find myself able to accept Bradley's slow development at the plate because, even before I am a Sox fan, I am a lover of the game of baseball.  Within that love, a beautiful centerfield patrol is of the highest order of appreciation.  I have been over the moon watching Jackie play the field this season.  If his bat can just pick up a little - not asking for Willie Mays, or even Jacoby Ellsbury bat - just a little, I will be more than happy witha  future of Bradley in the 9 hole and playing legendary centerfield.

    You really don't want the Offensive stats between the two. OBP .282 Slugging % .292
    OBP .358 Slugging % .419
    He better have a good arm.

    I'd take Gary Pettis right now but even that is a mere pipe dream.

    Gary would hit ya 240 over 320 but he's also give ya 40-50 SB's and a great CF as well.  Usually was able to handle batting lead off although better suited for down in the order (8/9).  GP would be a very good goal for JBJ to at least look at as a comp.......less the SB's of course.....Makes you appreciate GP much more now doesn't it?

    I agree. Allow JBJ to patrol CF for the rest of the season. In fact, Farrell, if he hasn't already, should tell JBJ that he's the everyday CF, no matter what.

    In the fifties the Sox used to, for a couple of years have an in season  exhibition game with the Giants. One of these times they had a throwing contest between Mays and Piersall, I guess for distance and accuracy. They both had great arms but that night Piersall hurt himself and never threw as well again.

    CF is about range, Corner Outfield is about arms.

    I agree with you agreeing, Bogie. Obviously, CF comes naturally to JBJ, and think he may be pressing too much at the plate, to the point he's totally lost, knowing if he doesn't produce as well offensively, he may be sent back down. Honestly, if he wasn't, he probably would have been, by now. If he knows he's here to stay, he may relax, get back his confidence, swing and game

    Actually, RF is mainly about arms. With JBJ, the SOX have a CF with both range and a good arm. Neither Damon nor Ells could ever be considered great CF's because of their weak arms. JBJ has all the tools to be the greatest defensive CF in SOX history, overtaking Fred Lynn, Dom DiMaggio, and Jimmy Piersall.

    Nice Bogie.  The O's of the Weaver era are always lauded for the starting pitching and Weaver's love of relying on the long ball.  But, I loooved those teams for a very different reason - truly beautiful defense at the key positions:  Brooks at the hot corner, Blair in center, Frank Robinson in right, Belanger at short, shoot davey johnson and later Bobby Grich at 2nd.  Poetry in motion.

    No question; the Orioles very rarely gave a team a 4 out inning.

    Belanger was an awesome defensive SS, who couldn't hit a lick. He'd be hated by many of the current posters on this board. So, Space, Do you know what Belanger's nickname was?
