I don't think there is any doubt Webster has the biggest up-side. He is also the least experiened as a pitcher. IF he solves his command issues he could be tremendous.

"I'm a journalist, it's my job to report the news." No, you aren't a journalist. You are a sports writer, and in case you have not noticed it's your job to try and help the team. That's what sports wr more »

Another day, another Boston sports writer trying to harm the team by promoting controversy and bad feelings. No other team in sports has to put up with this stuff. And it's day in and day out. more »

The Boston sport's writers really hate Lester don't they.

[/QUOTE]I blame Drew for climate change, also.[/QUOTE]I don't blame Drew. And I like Cherrington. I just thought that was a bad move.
Posted 09/15/2014 11:15:20 EDT
I have to say the single worst move made this year was signing Drew. It came right as the team seemed to be clicking and Boagerts was on fire stringing together multiple hit games. It was a vote of n more »

I've got it in my head that Bogaerts can play SS and that he's been better than I expected. What I wonder is if Betts can play 3B. I assume he can, because he's an infielder, has a strong arm, and ex more »

Pedroia will be fine. The Sox just need to see to it he get's completely healthy and then stop allowing him to try to play through injuries. I see no reason the Sox can't resign Lester and walk away more »
Posted 09/03/2014 10:35:55 EDT
This is a complicated question. I tend to think the primary problem with Pedroia is his toughness which leads to him trying to play through injuries. I'm half way inclined to think the Sox should shut more »

In response to ctredsoxfanhugh's comment: [QUOTE] If Mookie Betts gets regular playing time the rest of the year I'm betting on him leading Portland, Pawtucket, and Boston in stolen bases. [/QUOTE] A more »

My standing opinion is not to let guys that have shown they can play here go. If a guy can play in Boston, he can play in the World Series. Boston is not an easy place to play. Despite three rings in more »

Yankees at -31 in run differential. Yankees, Toronto and Baltimore have shaky pitching. Looks like it's going to come down to the Rays and the Sox. Okay, I'm half kidding, but I don't think it's cr more »

Bogaerts .317 Bradley .301.

You would think the team would have the decency to stay dead. There must have been five times this season where I felt they were going to turn things around, and in every case I ended up thinking they more »

The Dodgers could offer to give Kemp to the Sox and pay his salary and I wouldn't want him.
Posted 07/16/2014 11:59:04 EDT
The Yankees have to be the most pathetic spectacle in all of sports. They spent all that money and will end up behind the Red Sox this year. And I'm not even predicting the Sox will have a .500 record more »
Posted 07/14/2014 06:09:13 EDT
I've always felt Bradley will hit over .300 for the prime years of his career. In fact he's such a hard working and intelligent player that it would not surprise me if he was hitting around .300 in hi more »

In my view (assuming they are both healthy) it's a big mistake if the Sox don't stick the rest of the year with Bogaerts at SS, Middlebrooks at 3B, Bradley in CF, and Vasquez behind the plate. They c more »
Posted 07/11/2014 03:02:06 EDT
I'd say this is also the year to find out about Middlebrooks. It is not the year to move guys who have not been written-off, but who are under-performing. Their trade value is so depressed it's not w more »
Posted 07/11/2014 02:38:34 EDT
Unless the Sox have decided that Bogaerts is not the future SS they need to move Drew and begin playing Bogaerts at short every day as soon as possible. This more or less "lost season" presents the p more »
Posted 07/10/2014 09:22:43 EDT
Even considering not resigning him is idiotic. I guess they could let Lester go, or trade him now and then throw the bank at Max Scherzer, but that would probably cost them more money and they would l more »

I'm saying shut him down if he's got a partially torn ligament in his wrist and is trying to play through it. I don't want to see the guy shorten his career.
Posted 06/30/2014 03:33:01 EDT
Every time I think this team is dead and I can just relax and watch the rookies they seem to show some sign of life like the disembodied arm of a zombie dragging itself across the room with crawling f more »
