    The Yankees are done. 
    Next question. 

  • Posted 04/03/2014 10:24:43 EDT

    He's a number three hitter. That said I do like the idea of him leading off. It'd be kind of brutal. The very first batter and the pitcher is getting worked and worked hard.

    I always loved him. He gutted out a whole year with an elbow hanging by a thread and kept saying he was alright and just needed to execute his pitches better.  And you know if he'd admitted he was hur more »

    I agree with Moon and others and never liked the "put the whistle in your pocket" idea that at the end of a game there are no rules.  It was simply a bad call. I'd go so far as to say it was a ridicul more »

    It was a bad call. End of story.

    Not sure this is a "big deal" but I don't get why they brought him in. 
    They brought him in. He did much better than probably was expected. And they cut him. 
    What was the point?

    I'm not down on Bradley, but he's never going to be as good as Sizemore is right now.  It all comes down to Sizemore staying healthy.  I'm convinced Bradley will hit major league pitching. The Pedroia more »

    Reading up on micro-fracture surgery and it may be Sizemore could make a strong comeback.  There are a lot of bad outcomes with that type of surgery, but it seems as if the problems come when guys are more »

    It seems very unlikely Sizemore will remain healthy.  Based on what we have seen so far, if he does, he's better than Ellsbury.  The scary thing is if you go back to 2011 there are reports of him comi more »

    The Sox were playing Bogaerts regularly in the WS.  The only argument for starting the year with him in AAA is to preserve a year of control.  If he comes out and has a very strong Spring that won't b more »

    The Sox are clearly sold on Boagerts at SS. They never would have made the trade for Peavy if they did not see Boagerts as a SS.  Cecchini is equally obviously the near future 3B-man. He shows every s more »

    Buchholtz is an artist. Very hard to predict. He's affordable right now. You stick with him.
    I expect the downside is greater than the upside. He's relatively cheap and worth the price.

    If you believe in Bogart then the Sox have a chance to be better than they were last year.  I've always felt Lester was the best pitcher in MLB and Lackey not far behind. The pitching looks strong and more »

    They also lost their closer.

    I felt all along the Sox should resign Ellsbury. The Yankees made an absurd offer and then passed on Cano.  JBJ is not Ellsbury, but the loss of Cano is the reason the Sox move up in the power ranking more »

    N.Y. is opperating on emotional turmoil and fumes. 
    They are the laughing stock of the sports world.

    I smell laughing stock of the sports world. 

    And it all comes down to not signing Cano.  It just speaks of tossing logic out the window and  being governed by emotion.

    All I am saying is Ben sees Bogaerts as a SS.

    I felt the Sox should resign Ellsbury. The Yanks offer for Ellsbury was absurd. At this point I go with JBJ. He can either play or not play. He isn't 19. It's time to find out.  If the Dodgers would t more »

    Ben clearly sees  Boegarts as the SS. That was made clear with the trade for Peavy.  Boegarts has done nothing to discourage the idea. He got some pressure situation starts at SS and did not look like more »

    With the Yanks not signing Cano, all their moves add up to a net loss. 
    It's like watching a person disintigrate into madness.

    Not even close. Bradley just threw the ball up and it went in. Bird actually measured and sighted that ridiculous shot.

    The signing hints the Sox felt Ellsbury would sign with the Yankees. 
    Ellsbury runs wild against lousy catchers.
