In response to moonslav59's comment: What Holt or Betts or anyone else has done so far this year doesn't really matter when considering what will happen over the next 100+ games. I prefer to loo at re more »

In response to RedsoxProspects' comment: By the way, even after this year's slump, Mookie is still a lifetime wRC+ of 107 as compared to Holt's 96. Plus he's a much better fielder and base runner. So more »

I don't think Jerry and Don are homers. Kruk and Schilling work for ESPN and not for one particular team's network. Don and Jerry should only be compared to other home team announcers. Don and Jerry g more »

My temporary impatience with the hitting is beginning to fade. Glad that Farrell finally tweaked the batting order and that Nap corrected a hitch in his swing. Just hope they can keep it up on the roa more »

In response to Hfxsoxnut's comment: We have a run differential of -42 in 42 games and a Pythagorean record of 17-25. That's disturbing. On the bright side, they have two wins more than their Pythagor more »

Rusney is off to a rough start. Unfortunately, he fits in perfectly so far.

Sox struck first tonight. Let's see how it works out.

In response to dannycater's comment: The alternatives to Mookie batting first frankly are terrible--Nava? Should he even be playing? Pedroia? He hates hitting 1st..(and 2nd and 3rd, and with a bad wri more »

Where is he going to play? What is he to do but sit for Injurino, Nava, Bradley?....pathetic it's taken this long.

Rusney is here to save the day!

Nicely played Jim.

In response to SpacemanEephus' comment: The Sox have been a mess thus far. No doubt. The pitching was broken as the offense was solid, then the pitching was hoss and the offense was dead. But, her more »

No one is trashing Betts. Some of us are pointing out his deficient OBP. None of us claimed it could not be corrected. It is up to Farrell to make lineup adjustments as needed, and so far, he hasn't.

Betts' job is to get on base and set the table for the power hitters, not to drive the ball. His job is to get on base any way he can. The leadoff hitter should have a high OBP.

I am impatient with the offense. I'm hoping it's just a strange coincidence of underperforming which will be corrected over the course of the season. I don't think impatience is unwarranted just becau more »
