    In response to dannycater's comment: See, you are wrong, Betts and Bogaerts are MLB  ready and so is Holt (as a backup). Swihart shouldn't be here but injuries to the other 2 catchers caused him to be more »

    In response to dannycater's comment: Yes, I would have been that apologist. Correct. That's my point. We all have things we feel should be done for what we feel are the right reasons and we're not alw more »

    Max is right. This is a truly astounding thread. The Sox need to simply go to the players who are ready to play in the majors and can build around going forward, regardless of their age. In case anybo more »

    In response to dannycater's comment: roy, it's apologists thinking. And yes I'll go there. It's exactly how Ben gets to survive the axe. Well, the Sox had to get rid of the starting rotation last year more »

    In response to Bisson1's comment: They should send him down to AAA and let him work at 1B for 2016. There's no point in grooming him to be a catcher when the longterm plan is Christian Vasquez.   The more »

    This is a ridiculous thread. Small sample sizez mean absolutely nothing. Anyone who thinks they do is just fooling themselves. They can cherry-pick all they want about the times they judged a player c more »

    He had that spurt where it looked like he turned the corner but unfortunately cooled off. Pitchers are killing him on the outside pitch. He's either taking them for called strikes (often strike 3) or more »

    Hmmm ... fans complain when Ortiz gets angry at what he percieves a bad call. Fans complained when J.D. Drew showed no emotion after taking a called strike.

    Hey folks, make up your damn minds.

    In all the Ortiz bashing, has anyone noticed that he's batting .342 in his last 11 games with 4 HRs, 10 RBIs and an OPS over 1.000. He's had hits in 10 of the 11 games, and the only game he didn't get more »

    A positive about the season is how the young kids are doing -- Bogaerts, Betts, Swihart, Rodriguez. That's why I say bring up Bradley and give him one more shot in RF.

    I don't understand why Farrell had Betts lead off. Here he goes again, Betts leads off and the No. 2 batter comes up with no one on base.
