    has tonights lineup been announced?  is the kid playing?

    Bill....X-Man could go 5 for 5 with 5 430' HR's and drew will still be on the team 01-Oct.

    I say this is a foolish post and releasing Drew would never happen for multiple reasons.

    Not that far fetched ..........  Drew will not be here next year......  What if we could get another bat/arm for him now ?????   Interesting, for sure !!

    At this point, moving Drew will be the stupidest thing they can do.  He's going to play October ball with the Red Sox.  When will you grow up Bill... Will you ever?

    Grow up ?????    Nevaa,  what for it's baseball !!!

    Good idea!!

     

    The Sox should move him for a stretch run hitter capable of hitting .280 / .360 / .450 since July 1.

     

    One name that leaps to mind is Stephen Drew...

    Bogaerts going 4-for-5 with 2 HR's would be awesome. It's also not going to happen. He is the most exciting prospect we've had in some time, but at his very young age some struggles are to be expected (if you don't think this is true even for elite prospects, look at Mike Trout's numbers during his first call-up in 2011 or Profar's this year), and the last thing we need to do is start building up ridiculous and impossible expectations that he's going to come up and immediately hit like Miguel Cabrera.

    I commend your enthusiasm for our young players, Bill -- seriously -- but this is a dumb thread.

    My prediction is if Bogaerts has meh first week, Bill starts a campaign to dump him and call up the REAL future in Cecchini...

    Bill,

    I respect that you are a big proponent of giving the young talent a shot....always an exciting thing for any fan, but you need to give Drew a break.....he is hitting .324 in the 18 game sin August, even better versus RHP....we cannot and should not expect to get that type of production from a 20 year old rookie.....not fair to Xander. That said, we all know Drew has struggled mightily vs LHP, so having Xander play SS vs Lefties to see if he produces is the way to go.....tonight he gets a RHP, so even this shouldnt be a good test.

    Not impressed with him guys. Not because he didnt get a hit, but because I dont like his stance up there, and am not crazy about his swing. He doesnt look like a hitter up there, looks like you could knock the bat out of his hands. When he stepped in I was like "this is him? this is the guy? Hmmmm." Its only one game, I may be wrong, probably am, but I was not encouraged by what I saw in his overall approach at the plate.

    Really???? I thought he looked great at the plate.  Even though the results didn't show, he seemd very relaxed and comfortable.  He didn't really chase any bad pitches and his swing looked very smooth and balanced.
