    Actually, Porcello has the third most quality starts on the team despite the horrendous ERA.  His WAR rating is -0.1, which is lousy, but HanRam's WAR is -1.2, and HanRam is paid $19M this year to Pro more »

    Not a big Ruthledge fan--he's not good with the glove. But I would easily trade Holt or Pedroia for that matter if it mean getting a good pitcher.

    My question is why did he even think he should tweet something like that?  it's way, way outside is area of expertise, which is baseball and something he knows a lot about.  To paraphrase Samuel Johns more »

    MacMc, I disagree.  The Sox are paying both those guys a lot of money, ditto Sandoval, which means they are an investment.  I love seeing the "kids" play and especially when the do well and help win g more »

    I like him but have to admit I usually have the sound turned off.  I do not think of his departure as the end of the world.

    I share the frustration of the OP because the game-winning hit came from a White Sox player who already had two hits off of starter Miley.  However, it is also true that we have just about the worst b more »

    Interesting.  I kind of expected Shaw to get the job, but have to agree 1B is probably the best place for HanRam.

    Schilling was just plain dumb to tweet that.  Yes, an ordinary citizen is entitled to say anything about anything, but Schilling is very much a public figure, one who is paid to be a public figure.  A more »

    Joe McCarthy or another of the old time managers once said that a pitcher who lacks control has nothing to offer.   My take on Kelly is that he is hittable when he over-relies on his fastball, and he more »

    Timely recall of a thread.  I for one was almost certain Bradley couldn't hit, but clearly he can.  Yes, still a small sample size, but impressive nevertheless. I give outfielders in front of the gree more »

  • Posted 08/24/2015 03:28:23 EDT

    I think you guys are missing a key point.  Yes, his fielding stinks, but the real point is that his hitting is also subpar.  His current OPS is .728.  And his overall WAR rating is -1.0.   Almost all more »

    Not ready to join the gang, but absolutely am enjoying the improved play, especially the hitting.  Outfielding not too shabby either.  But the bullpen is still a problem and sometimes the starters.  E more »

    Really hard to see 1 run per game merely by replacing HanRam with JBJ or whoever.   I see things a little differently in terms of next year because right now I see 5 possible/likely outfielders:  HanR more »

    While I consider the OP to heretical and dannycater to in fact be a heretic, the simple fact is that right now on this team the pitching is broken, busted, destroyed, worthless, you name it.  Conseque more »

    I am inclined to agree with moonslav's notion that dumping HanRam right now is probably not the smart move.   That said, my concern about him is that, season to date--and we are near the end of August more »

    Applause for the OP and the notion of defending Ramirez in LF, who these days is just about everybody's whipping boy--and I admit one of mine.   To me HanRam is another reminder of how seasons and pla more »
