    It should and will be Wright who pitched well, but his 1.8 WHIP means the tide could just as easily have turned the other way. I like him but think he needs more seasoning anyhoo. Teakus-Carpe Veritat more »

    My humble apologies Sync! I knee jerked against something that wasn't there. I just so HATE seeing Red Sox fans called Yankee fans because of a view they might hold, and I got a bit spazadelic in misp more »

    Not so sure that applies to catchers, who throw violently from their knees in a variety of weird angles. Most other positions a guy can set himself and deliver a throw from a predicatable arm angle. W more »

    The man put his predictions on the line and asked other RED SOX FORUM fans to do the same, and you imply that he is somehow a Yankee fan? And I guess that also means anyone hazarding a negative guess more »

    I'm also totally excited and think Hanley really wants to succeed here, for many reasons in addition to his competitive nature. Add the Panda to the mix along with a resurgent Pedroia and Napoli.....s more »

    I think you're generally right Spaceman, though there are some who would loooove to see the removal of those with whom they disagree. But I do think we've done a very good job of resisting those voice more »

    The man did everything that was asked of him and was a great talent behind the plate. I hope all goes well and he's back in 18 months better than ever. Now....can Swihart possibly continue the great p more »

    The OP clearly asked for the best ever.....and that is cleary The Splendid Splinter. But man alive has it been a pleasure watching this David Ortiz in action these past years! The greatest Red Sox hit more »

    And, for the record, I agree with most of what ADG has said AND most of what CT has said, minus the part about ADG "complaining and whining". I think he articulated a point of view using logic, reason more »

    Shane is being show cased for a trade. Here's hoping he can stay on the field and perform well until the deal is done. Trust me, nobody is confused about who has more value long term. But this is actu more »

    Prediction: Shane will NOT be playing for the Red Sox on May 1, 2015. He will most likely be traded, (I rate the chances for this 90%), or have an injury before then resulting in a call up. He'll then more »

    ALWAYS remember the following : The single greatest predictor of future injury,  is a history of significant past injuries. While the success rate of Tommy John Surgery is well established, the risk f more »

    And hence the divergence between two camps of Red Sox fans. One camp is perfectly content to rest on our laurels because we won in 2013, the other camp-where I and most of the fans I know reside-belie more »

    A good offense combined with good pitching is the necessary formula to win championships. Having one without the other is a recipe for a looooong season, which is what I fear we're going to have if we more »

  • Posted 03/18/2015 11:57:45 EDT

    We know much, and I couldn't disagree with your post more. Our starting pitching staff is poor. We determine that by assessing last seasons performances, and whatever information can be gleaned from t more »

    CT it was a pleasure reading your thoughtful analysis, and I agree with most of it. Things can often get acrimonious on a message board, but I don't think any reasonable person could find too much fau more »

  • Posted 03/18/2015 07:54:34 EDT

    How any intelligent person could look at this starting crew and think otherwise is beyond me. This front office has chosen to assemble a bunch of mediocre, injury prone head cases, and has attempted t more »

    Victory lap...over 1 bad start? I assure you any poor outing by any Red Sox player would NEVER be a cause for celebration from me, or any true Red Sox fan. Nor would a sample size of one constitute an more »

    Haha! Thanks man. It's been a lonely vigil for me, with but a few willing to stand beside me and embrace what I see as an obvious truth. But I'll bet my hat that this will change in the days and weeks more »

    I've seen nobody here "freaking out about spring training stats" or "trashing guys with less than 10 innings of spring training." I've heard many reasonable concerns expressed about this starting staf more »

    Thanks Zac! Always appreciate your level headedness hombre. The simple fact is that pitchers ALWAYS have an advantage over hitters, at all phases of the game. It's why the greatest hitters in the game more »
