    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 »

        In response to maxbialystock's comment: OK, it's my turn.  Our two rotation mainstays/aces, Lester and Lackey, are gone forever.   On the other hand, neither has had a good ST so far.  Cherington 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 »

    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 »

    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 »

    Love this kid! He's about as untouchable as any prospect can reasonably be. A budding stud in MLB, and he's allllllll ours! MUHAHAHA!!!   In response to bosoxmal's comment: In response to ctredsoxfanh 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 »

    He'll never admit to being wrong, but you've clearly proved your case Tea....er...hill55!   In response to hill55's comment: In response to emp9's comment: Hill, re-read my post. I never said ALL regu more »

    Ahhh!! Now Hill when you read this I want you to always remember that I am you, and you are me, and we are ONE. I'm happy that was cleared up by our resident genius!! As for the rest of his nonsense, more »

    Really had alot of nothing to say there didn't ya Empster? I have no idea about this alleged post you claim to have made where you "proved this wrong on another thread." Put up or shut up bub. And yes more »

  • Posted 03/16/2015 08:19:45 EDT

    Totally agree that this is spring training and ptchers may well be working on certain things, and not overly conerned about stats that don't count. Similiarly, batters may be working on going the othe more »

  • Posted 03/16/2015 05:26:41 EDT

    Get used to folks being anxious regarding the starting pitching staff, because Masterson, Buch, and Kelly are all spooky critters with a high risk for failure. I see Miley as a classic number 4 starte more »

  • Posted 03/16/2015 05:14:43 EDT

    And even the nicely priced James Shields would have been a HUGE signing for us. But we are where we are, and we have to deal with the present realities. I think that with our logjam in the OF, and our more »

  • Posted 03/16/2015 05:07:38 EDT

    In all honesty our defense isn't really "better" than last season at all. We're going to play Hanram in left, a risky move likely to have some issues related to it. Not saying he'll be horrible, but c more »

    Some good recent posts here, especially new entries from Javi60 and Redsoxpride34. It's good to see some folks starting to pay attention to what should be obvious to usall: this starting 5 just ain't more »

    None screamed louder against a Lee trade than I did. That being said, he and Hamels have absolutely nothing to do with each other and should not be discussed in the same terms. Hamels is almost 7 yrs more »

  • Posted 03/12/2015 11:32:18 EDT

    Flapjack I want to suggest to you that our goal as a team should not be to "slug it's way to the playoffs despite a mediocre rotation." That's what small market teams hope for, not a large market team more »

    If you did Sonics, then I was right there with ya man. Was a crazy idea to even consider a trade for a 37 yr old guy with serious elbow problems and a HUGE contract to boot! He's their nightmare to ha more »

    Excellent! Here's hoping we can get a deal done for Cole Hamels. Appreciate the link hombre.   In response to seannybboi's comment: 3/11 Update: according to Peter Abraham.... https://twitter.com/Pete more »
