    I love how VTek gave all the props to DMac on the play at the plate.

    Double-take for Jake.
    He's now in double figures in Home Runs.
    May end up with 20.
    Must be that back foot pivot.

    Don't forget how softy projected an increase in HRs for Jake when he moved to LF in 2010, due to the less stress.

    Cue: denial & diversions.

    Lost in all the hate and bashing...

    is how Wake has allowed Aceves to fill the crucial long relief role.

    is how VTek has helped Salty ease into a pressure burner situation.

    is how Jacoby has far outshinned the other 4 OF'ers on the roster.

    That catch that Ells made in left-center was a catch that i don't think anyone else in the majors could have made.  That sort of catch certainly balances out the occasional bad jump/read that Billysoft writes him off as a bad defender for.

    [QUOTE]McDonald "saved the game", last night. 

    Did you see the block of the plate by your anti-hero VTek? The guy would have been safe. You only see what you want to see. I see a great throw by DMac and a team effort win thanks to VTek and others.

    Wakefield has been peppered with 27 hits in his last three waddles. 

    I thought you were ignoring WHIP for Wake. Now in a smaller sample, suddenly it takes on a higher value meaning?

    His ERA is not far from the over 5 it's been since the last half of 2009. 

    You used to say over 5; I guess that means it is falling...

    The younger talent would have done better, 

    I have asked you over ten time, who this "younger talent" is that is being held back by Wake. You naswered Miller in April... the guy that started off horribly in AAA and obviously needed fine tunning before taking the step up. You mentioned Doubront, who has been hurt and ineffective. Who else is Wake holding down?

    Crickets...

    while this guy gets a month or more on the de facto DL and then averages 6 or more days between goofball pitching. 

    How many times do i have to show you the numbers before your thick skull let's in some light? The guy has more starts and IP since he joined the rotation on May 22nd than any other starter on the staff. Nobody has avgeraged a start every 5 days, since Tito gives everyone an extra day when the team gets a day off.

    Ellsbury has reached double digits in homers for the first time in his Ted Williams like career. He's been weak agianst LHP this year. Despite a Crawford career high season, to July, he is what his career averages say he is. 

    He is doing much better than his career numbers were before the start of 2011: the numbers you said he'd end up with at season's end.

    Perfect time to deal him for Kemp, who is what Ellsbury can never be. But more importantly, Kemp is what the Red Sox need in the present and the future. 

    His "future" is short, in terms of team control.

    Despite Salty's past ball, his pitching was good with the pen. 

    You mean "pass ball"? 

    He's still a lousy defender. Varitek is as bad as Wastefield, on the "where would the Red Sox be without him" nonsense. 

    Wake up and smell the coffeee.

    A solid young defensive catcher would be better than Varitek, but as long as he's here there isn't hardly any Red Sox fan who will admit that replacing him would improve the position. The assumption is that a younger alternative to two old fossils like Wakefield and Varitek could not possibly do as well as these "classy" loyal heroes. Nonsense.  

    Of course there are some young players who could do better than Wake and Vtek, but to get one that is a certainty to do better would be highly costly. Teams don't just give away top young catchers and starters, and despite your twisted dreams, we do not have a great defenseive young guy ready to play MLB in our system, and we do not have a MLB ready starter either. Dream on. Nighmare on.

    Is this ever an understatement!  Ells is very deserving of his All Star selection.  The only criticism I have is his 10 CS in 38 attempts.  He was caught only 12 times all year in his 70 theft season in '09.

    For all of the speed that he has, I don't think he is necessarily one of the best baserunners.  Good baserunning and base stealing also takes smarts and getting good reads on things.  Not that he's terrible, but with his speed, I think he could do a better job.

    [QUOTE]william, take a look at his numbers v. LHP, while you are limiting your criticism for this "budding superstar". Moonslow, in your drivel on Kemp being "short", it's called an extension and the very factor why the Dodgers will take a long look at any serious offer. If you would get your head out of Wakefield's backside you would be able to see outside your nose.

    Many left handed hitters struggle against lefties.  Since he will face righties 70% of the time I'd rather a left hand batter struggle against lefties than the other way around.

    Personally, I think Ellsbury is a terrific ballplayer , but what is the point of devoting an entire thread to try and gang up on a particular poster , that you happen to disagree with? It is really not called for and serves no purpose. There will always be differences of opinion, whether its baseball, politics, horse racing, or anything else.  Nothing wrong with that. Is everyone supposed to conform to the same viewpoint on this forum?  I don't think that would be very interesting.

    That's a very reasonable point of view.  However, this particular poster does tend to invite this kind of treatment with his endless and remorseless attack on certain players.
