Infield is all righties except Sandoval, switch-hitter. Now the outfield promises to be all righties with lefty Nava in reserve. Ortiz is basically our only full-time lefty bat, so I'm hoping the So more »

Jidgef. You write good. Thanks.

I figure the Sox will definitely finish this season in the AL East. Bet on it.
Posted 03/23/2015 09:30:26 EDT
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 let them go because they were about to becom more »

I hate going after Hamels and letting the Phillies raid our icebox. But I am also nervous about our rotation, nervous enough to think Wright might be in it when the season Starts in about two weeks o more »

I looked at the ST ERA's and they did not make me bullish on this bullpen.

Good thread, comments, but OP claiming best outfield in mlb is way over the top. To me just plain good would be fantastic. The Yank has a point about two rookies, but right now color me "vic-averse. more »

Actually, I think what Dad means to say is he never did much like veterans because the newest face is always the prettiest. Right, Bill?

Not bad a deal for Renteria, I think. Managining the Cubs cannot have been fun. Now he gets paid while looking for another position. And we of course benefit from having Maddon go to the NL Central more »

Thanks, Kimmi. Entirely credible even though I have long believed that the batting order was a big deal.

In response to dannycater's comment: 1. You can't play Mookie Betts at 2b because it's Dustin Pedroia's spot and it's wrong to take a young stud and put him at his natural position. 2. Jon Lester is more »

In response to S5's comment: I'm trying to not read too much into the house thing. In reality, the decision to sell was made before the sign went up. Lester was on the West Coast preparing for a bas more »

Ain't buying the slider theory because other pitches can have the same effect. So let's try a little math. Assume 300 pitches per game, multiply times 25 seconds for each pitch, and divide by 60 to more »

J-Bay, good catch on Vazquez. Thanks.

Thanks for the OP, Jete. I will be watching because it's a habit and of course I am always interested in the Sox players and somewhat less so the Yankees. Both teams have their work cut out for them more »

First and foremost, my congratulations to moonslav for a truly great thread. In the past I have thought these realistic threads tended to get a little too far down in the weeds, but this one in parti more »

I gotta agree with those who say Bill-806 doesn't actually watch the games. No way, no how does Buchholz not come out for the 8th inning. He wasn't tired and had shut out the Rays for 7 innings and more »

A nice thought by the OP, but blog sites are rarely known for their class. I think Jeter deserves to be in the HOF. I read somewhere he was the crucial player for the latest version of the Yankee dy more »

In response to Kingface12's comment: He did take his lead in foul territory. The problem was his dive back in.....he went into fair territory after the ball was hit. The replay I saw shows him right more »

I agree with those who defend Bogaerts at SS. Lately he has looked pretty darn good to me. Not gold glove, of course, but much improved, and he is still young. Plus it's clear he is happy there. W more »

Not a great article, not by a long shot. Silly, in fact. I think Bradley is a terrific centerfielder, but have seen better. He might have an attitude problem, but it is irrelevant. If he can't h more »

Tabuk. About a 4 hour drive from Amman.
Posted 09/09/2014 03:20:44 EDT
Honestly? No big deal. Rooting for the Sox right now is mostly habit, not expectation.
Posted 09/08/2014 01:10:27 EDT
Interesting. Since I have been a Bradley booster and concomitantly an Ellsbury naysayer, I have to agree with your points. I do think Bradley is a much better fielder overall, but have to admit his more »

I like the headline and the OP. Boston writers can be nasty, but in their defense they are simply looking for something, anything, to write about. I myself think he is a goner simply because Boston more »
