Free agents are over-rated. Put the money into the farm system, and give the young players you already have a chance to show what they can do. In particular, we do not need a 3rd baseman. We already h more »

We don't need a 3rd baseman, we already have 3 good candidates on the Redsox, between Garin Cecchini, Brock Holt and Will Middlebrooks. Save that money and use it for a true pitching ace... or to deve more »

P.S. If you have any non-forever stamps lying around, use them up first! Too bad they didn't announce this sooner, I could have used all of those for sending Christmas cards.

Why didn't they just make it fifty cents, so it would be simple to calculate cost in your head, and so pennies would no longer be needed in the cash drawers at the post office? Besides being simpler, more »

One very simple solution: define every play at the plate as a force out, as if the bases were loaded. As long as the catcher has the ball and steps on home plate before the runner touches home plate, more »

"That also proved to be a smart move. If Drew signs with another team, the Red Sox will receive a supplemental first-round draft pick. If the qualifying offer depresses Drewâs market, the Red Sox wi more »

Thank you for including a link to the actual study writeup, which is available online for free (thank you, JAMA). One sentence in the study writeup that is very important: "Compared with placebo, men more »

How about banning tobacco in at least 80 percent of every park, with a designated area no larger than 20 percent of the park for smokers to light up? Tobacco users are less than 20 percent of the popu more »

Thank you Jacoby, that was a very classy thing to do.

Get the draft pick, X at short, Middlebrooks at 3rd, no problems. JB junior in center. Develop the farm system. Forgot about megabucks free agents. It's time to be smart and get real about how the m more »

JBJ is your man in center field. He just needs consistent playing time. You could occasionally have Nava in right and Victorino in center to spell JBJ if necessary. I love the strength of Nava's arm, more »

I hope the draft pick Boston gets from the Yankees turns out to be the next Joe Dimagio / Ted Williams type of player (Yaz II would be great too!).

Perhaps Mr. Fisher would like to ride the train that goes through Leicester Massachusetts. In this case, he would need to contact CSX. MBTA, we'd like it if you would expand passenger service west of more »

One of the worst things about JFK's death: it caused the death of 50,000 Americans in the Vietnam War. JFK would have taken us out of Vietnam, unlike LBJ. This is documented fact, and can be read in more »

Baseball would do better if it was not controlled by TV and cable TV. In the old days of baseball, there was a one minute time period between innings. Now it's 2.5 minutes. That adds an extra 27 minu more »

Salty is OK by me. Please don't give away the farm to trade for a catcher: not a good idea.

Stephen Drew plays is a terrific defensive shortstop. In addition, this past season he had a .253 batting average, 13 home runs, 67 RBIs, 57 runs scored and six steals. He was a good clutch hitter too more »

You can look at Philadelphia to make a run at Ellsbury. They have the money to spend, with a new cable TV contract in hand. Boston doesn't really need to keep him, we will be OK without him. It was gr more »

Having Middlebrooks bat for Drew was a mistake. However, IF you're going to weaken your defense by doing that, then do a double switch: put Middlebrooks in as a runner for Ortiz, and have Napoli pinc more »

Why wasn't the batter walked to load the bases and set up a force at every base?
Posted 10/27/2013 09:12:26 EDT
Great point, and I fault the manager. The manager should have moved his 3rd baseman into the correct position. It should have been a double play, and could have even been a classic triple play.
