Bogaerts and Betts were better choices.

In response to dannycater's comment: max v. moonslav, a battle royale If so, I am overmatched because moonslav knows way more than I. The best I can hope for is what he just wrote, that another manag more »

An amazing, optimistic thread. Elsewhere there are at least two threads that argue that this year and this team and especially this manager are all hopeless. I have been to those threads and encoun more »

In response to moonslav59's comment: Just say no! Do NOT trade any prospects for two month rentals. I'm fine with making a deal for a pitcher who will help us beyond 2015, but I do not think getting more »

In response to soxnewmex's comment: The Red Sox lucked out and didn't have to face the Astros ace Keuchel 10-3 and his 2.00 ERA 0.96 WHIP and 100+Ks, and George Springer just went on the DL with an i more »

I want to apologize to everyone on this thread who saw the inner truth about this incompetently managed, apathertic team long before I did. The argument about whether Tazawa should have been ready to more »

Now that I get it, I'm starting to enjoy this thread. In my own defense, I have to say sometimes it's hard to see apathy or a virus for that matter. But, once you see it, it's like revealed truth. more »

I take it back. I'm starting to see the apathy virus now. Ortiz was playing 1b with all kinds of viral apathy, but dunderhead Farrell waited until the 8th inning to bring Napoli in. And some outfie more »

In response to BogieAt12oclock's comment: Definitely a noticeable improvement with Ortiz at 1st base. The runner on 3rd running on contact is the manager's call. I think it should be based on the spee more »

This is an insane thread. Ortiz is the most apathetic player in MLB and none of you ever complain about it, maybe because he was one key to winning three WS.

It irritates the heck out of me when Holt decides to get picky at the plate and especially take a called 3d strike on a 2-2 count. He needs to forget Bill James.
Posted 07/05/2015 12:03:41 EDT
I wanted to keep Ellsbury, but not at his price, which frankly ridiculous. That said, he has definitely helped the Yankees from the lead odd position with Gardner up 2d. I don't think of him as frag more »

In response to bosoxmal's comment:
It's a very good move.
Posted 07/05/2015 11:56:52 EDT
Moonslav, nobody is untouchable, but right now buchholz is close to our MVP because he has a variety of good pitches and good command of them. He is almost a sure win when he is pitching like this a more »
Posted 07/05/2015 11:34:21 EDT
With Victorino back, this move gets De Aza back in the lineup, basically, his bat for Napoli's.
Posted 07/05/2015 10:44:07 EDT
Moonslav, while I don't at all mind agreeing that not having Tazawa available Friday night was a big mistake--they really had a shot at winning with him in there for the 7th and/or 8th innings--and th more »
Posted 07/05/2015 10:30:40 EDT
I think Pedroia, Holt, Betts (!), Bogaerts, Ortiz, Ramirez, Sandoval, victorino, and hanigan/Leon. Against lefty starters, I would probably bench Ortiz, move Ramirez to DH and the 5 slot, DeAza to LF more »
