Thanks for taking over 5S. Great job!!

If JBJ improves his hitting somewhat, his arm and defense certainly could compensate for batting average defiiency. I think HanRam will be better than Gomes in the outfield. He will never be planted more »

A sad scenario with Dubront. A person with so much talent and not taking advantage of it to the fullest.

In response to moonslav59's comment: But what about a Vic/Nava platoon. Vic does his best hitting against lefties; whereas, Nava is good vs RHP. Also Vic can backup center and can spell Nava late in g more »

One of my biggest blunders was not going to ST this year...

I totally agree with Slasher. I think HanRam is definitely destined to eventually play 1st base and eventually take over the DH when Ortiz retires. And, I think management will make Ortiz's decision more »

Because Victorino is an injury waiting to happen, I'd be reluctant to trade some of our top outfield talent. Under this circumstance, keeping Betts and Rusney is 'balance' and security. Even JBJ coul more »

Damn...I'm really kicking myself in the butt for not going there this year as a PRIORITY.
Rest assured that me and my better half will be there next year.
Keep up the great work you guys. Good job!!

How many times does Nava have to prove himself? For Nava's sake, I hope he's traded. It's time for him to thank the Red Sox for the opportunity they gave him, and start for another team. But, for fi more »

I read your post.
I give you credit for acknowledging the possibility that no one really knows what happened.
Regardless, it was an accident. Too bad a serious one.

Just for haha's Moon, try running at full speed, mouth half-open to capture all the air you can, and say outloud the words 'I GOT IT'. Guess what! You don't have to move your lips to say 'I GOT IT'. more »

With the crowd noise in Fenway, who knows if Ellsbury called off Beltran or not. If he did, it's not unreasonable to believe that Beltran never heard him. Any belief to the contrary is purely guessin more »

I wouldn't be overly optimistic for Middlebrooks yet.
The big question is whether the ST pitchers are throwing many sliders yet.
Posted 03/02/2015 12:47:01 EST
On the subject, it would be nice if Buchholz would only be allowed to throw over to first a couple of times per game.
