About keeping three catchers. I would ask everyone who believes that is dumb--and it could be--who they would put on the 25 man roster. In other words, who's left down at Pawtucket who can help? Th more »

Hold it. I think 3 catchers are feasible. Check my math. Right now we have 13 pitchers and should only need 12. And we have 12 positions players: 1 DH, 2 catchers, 4 infielders (Marrero, Bogaerts more »

Well done, dannycater and royf19. You two are amazing. Back in 1975 I was still on active duty and nowhere near Boston and had only the local newspaper, Stars&Stripes, as my conduit. Besides, I w more »

Great question, and I kind of like royf19's facetious response--keep all 3. Why? Because Farrell has had a short bench during this semi-hot (getting better) period for the Sox. To keep 3 catchers, a more »

Dannycater doesn't just think outside the box, it's also where he disappears to when things go awry.

Is it worth mentioning that so far the unimaginative--on the part of the manager--have 4 of the Sox hits, all 3 of the rbi's, and 2 of the runs scored. Maybe our OP writer will return to this thread more »

So far Farrell's pedestrian lineup has worked well. Bradley walks, betts singles, holt walks, and Bogaerts doubles to drive home 2 runs. Then Ortiz and Sandoval both pop up with runners on 2d and 3d more »
Posted 06/29/2015 08:15:59 EDT
Give JBJ credit for getting 2 longish counts, 1 for a walk.
Posted 06/29/2015 08:14:10 EDT
Way too much justice so far. Jays batter has his hands in the strike zone, but still gets the HBP, but then trips going home and is out. Then a cheap single followed by a double play play K plus thr more »

In the event, tonight's game, JBJ walked, betts singled, holt walked, and Bogaerts doubled in 2 runs. So right now Farrell's sensible approach has made a lot more sense. Now let's start another t more »

Think of this as a game in a NL park and Leon is batting 8th and Bradley is the pitcher. They both stink and are impossible to hide, but the worst thing you can do is give a .120 hitters who has neve more »

In response to MadMc's comment: With all the OF'ders at our disposal we went outside for DeAza and Peguero because BenC and JF didn't know how to handle JBJ. They wouldn't give Brentz another chance. more »

Tazawa has pitched against the Jays 4 times this season. In 3 of those 4 times he pitched a total of 3.1 innings and gave up 1 run. In the 4th occasion, in June, he gave up 5 runs, 4 earned. Given more »

Agree with the OP. When he is healthy, Buchholz still has it, by which I mean a variety of good pitches and pretty good control. His WAR of 1.5 makes him the 24th best pitcher in MLB, and we know he more »

A truly astounding thread which has by and large successfully ignored the simple fact that, when your lineup has a 22 year old batting 1st, a 27 year old batting 2d, another 22 year old batting 3d, a more »

OP was a good instinct and absolutely what I had in mind. Yesterday's box score, on the other hand, is dismaying. Miley had an excellent start, going 6.1 and giving up just the 2 run dinger down the more »

In response to BogieAt12oclock's comment:
I'm not going to predict a perfect game, but I can definitely see a no-hitter. The perfect game would be ruined by a walk to Naptime.

Twice in a row holt k's while keeping the bat firmly on his shoulder. Horrible.
Posted 06/27/2015 04:44:03 EDT
Leon watches 2 fat pitches for strikes 2 and 3. JBJ K's on three pitches but swung on all 3.
Posted 06/27/2015 04:39:17 EDT
Holt makes a bad judgment, but is redeemed by good plays by both Miley and Bogaerts.
Posted 06/27/2015 04:28:37 EDT
Ortiz took 2 called strikes and failed to check his swing for strike 3. Sox hitters just love to take pitches.
