    It sounds like a worthy cause friend and I know KC fans are some of the best in baseball. As our season is officially over, I can wish your friend well as his fight goes on. I know you would wish deat more »

    Well said. We can have 1 or maybe even 2 easy outs in the line up if the other 7 are serious hitters. But trying to run with 3,4 or 5 low OPS guys is a recipe for disaster. Our pitching will be weaker more »

    The man clearly needs at least 500 more AB's at AAA before being brought back up, which should ONLY occur if he's hitting. All prospects should have at least 1000 AB's at AAA before being promoted to more »

    The truth, and nothing but the truth, is what will lead our beloved Red Sox out of the hole they've dug for themselves. Sugar coating what's happened, and failing to learn from our mistakes, will doom more »

    From your lips to the baseball gods ears mate. I think 30 homers is wildly optimistic for Xander, who is clearly struggling to handle MLB pitching still. At 21 years of age his body is still growing/m more »

    With a small sample size to work with it sure looks like Betts can handle MLB pitching, and also that Xander can't very well. While I desperately want Xander to be the stud he's been predicted to be, more »

    Watching the Red Sox chronically fail to effectively manage JBJ's development hurts my head! Somebody should be fired, fired, FIRED for their stupidity. The guy hits .200 for a full year at the MLB le more »

    Mujica is mediocrity defined. He's fairly cheap at $4.75 million for next season, so I don't mind him in the pen somewhere, but he's certainly not closer material or even back up closer material. Teak more »

    You're a more patient man than I. I'm calling him an official bust right now and am prepared to cut bait with him. The man is uncoachable, in the sense that no matter what is said to him or by whom, h more »

    The bottom line is we are now a different team and if we hope to contend next season we're going to have to bash teams with offensive prowess. You don't accomplish that by constantly trying to unload more »

    We need Napoli next season IMO. We have enough spots to fill without looking for more, and with a beefed up line up he could be a potent bat. I agree he's not really worth it on paper now, but think w more »

    I would love to see Betts tried at SS for September to see if he could handle the position for next season. He's had some limited exposure in the minors, but as a 2nd baseman should be able to handle more »

  • Posted 08/27/2014 09:40:30 EDT

    I love your enthusiasm hombre! I too am excited to watch Betts and to see a smart player like he pick up the game at the MLB level. I wish he could possibly transition to SS, because I think at 21 Xan more »

  • Posted 08/25/2014 09:07:42 EDT

    Agreed. I guess it's all water under the bridge now, and the focus has got to be on next season. I do like some of the recent moves and how they position us going into next season. I don't believe we more »

    Ummm....ok he has a lifetime OPS of .783 and not the .800 I estimated it at. But your passionate defense of the Red Sox unwillingness to best the Yanks crazy contract for Ells is completely unnecessar more »

  • Posted 08/24/2014 09:15:58 EDT

    Nicely said ABQDan! There is also the matter of physical development. Sometimes players just need some age on them. Xander is 21 yrs old and JBJ 24. Both will be stronger and better if they stay exact more »

    You should listen to this man. He know's of what he speaks.   Teakus-Carpe Veritatem!     In response to redsoxdirtdog's comment: [QUOTE] I don't think then Red Sox are "giving up" on JBJ, but it seem more »

    You are 100% correct AL34. I can't imagine a worse rookie performance year for us in my lifetime. If it wasn't for Brock Holt's stunning success it would have been truly embarrassing. I think they're more »

  • Posted 08/24/2014 08:55:52 EDT

    Jacoby is a lifetime .294 hitter with an .800 OPS from the centerfield position...what's not to like?? His contract was too high and the Spankees outbid us, but so what?! He's still a STUD player even more »

  • Posted 08/24/2014 08:26:25 EDT

    This move is very encouraging and all of Red Sox Nation should be pleased. He's not the stud quality player like some other recent Cuban immigrant signings, but he's an excellent baseball player well more »

    I'm guessing some of the kids will be packaged for a Stanton or other stud player. The Marlins would have to be knocked off their feet to let Stanton go, but I think we have the pieces to do it, inclu more »

    The Red Sox front office continues to send Clay out there when he DOES NOT DESERVE A SPOT IN THE ROTATION. He is statistically the worst starter in the majors (with enough innings pitched to count) an more »

    Watching and waiting for rookies to develop can be maddening at times! I screamed from day 1 that JBJ needed another year to season in AAA, because he was simply over matched at the plate. The fact it more »

    Man alive, I'm glad we didn't shake on that deal for Tulo!! He's Mike Lowell now, only with a monstrous contract. Oh well Moon...back to the drawing board kemosabe! Might I propose the following: We t more »
