    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 »

    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 »

    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 »

    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 »

    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 »

    Well said sir and I totally agree. He remains one of our top prospects and I'm faaar from giving up on him. In fact, I'm thinking if his body does catch up next year or the year after and he's able to more »

    I think it's time to officially nominate Moon for GM! Very creative mind capable of thinking outside the box. I actually like this whole proposal Moon....though I am not at all concerned about staying more »

    Hehe! Flapjack I don't understand your reluctance to simply admit JBJ is presently overmatched at the MLB level. The man isn't hitting .230 after 4 months...he's hitting .211. His freaking OPS is .570 more »

    Of course it was! We had Brock Holt playing 3rd base as well remember, but after Drew was signed and Xander moved to 3rd, he went to the OF. Off course the Middlebrooks injury played a role, as did ma more »

    Drew was signed with the understanding he'd been out of baseball a long time and he'd need several weeks to get into game shape. His 1st game for us was June 15th against Cleveland. And we were only a more »

    Wowsa! And if a player hits .400 for 2-3 weeks...would that make him a .400 hitter? There is a reason small sample sizes are discarded when stats are used to evaluate talent-they lie! JBJ IS A .200 HI more »

    Which is exactly why I'm so furious that the ownership forced Ben to keep him in the bigs all season. He WASN'T READY! Any fool with a modicum of baseball insight knew that, and yet the bozos allowed more »

    Of course defense is important, but let me test your hypothesis further. My argument is ALL MLB players must be at least adequate on both offense and defense. A superb hitter would of course be excuse more »
