In response to ctredsoxfanhugh's comment: High contact rates, and good contact can cause some players to consistently keep their BABIP over .300 Mookie is a linedrive hitter who doesn't swing and mis more »

In response to MadMc's comment: I agree the Phils need to dump salary to become competitive. I have said this for a while: Hamels, Howard, their best catching prospect in the minors and $25 M for Nap, more »

In response to moonslav59's comment: I think they'd say no. I might offer Owens, but I think Hamels' contract is too high to be worth risking Owens. I'd offer just about anything else besides Betts, S more »

I now have Mookie Betts as our 2nd best prospect. In one week, he probably will be the number one prospect as Xander will lose his prospect status.

I agree that Pedroia should become more aggresive on the first pitch. However, after the first pitch he should become much less aggresive. He is swinging at way too many pitches outside of the strike more »

Thats one of the longest HR's I have ever seen hit in Fenway. It took 3 replays before I even figured out where that ball landed. About 15 feet short of the upper deck.

In the last game and a half, Bradley has caught 2 balls that Nava probably would not have and Sizemore has missed 3 balls Bradley probably would have caught. Thats 5 hits, 4 that were or would have be more »

Good predictions. My biggest disagreements are with Papi being too high and Middlebrooks being to low. Both by about 50 points.
I know I will get one number right though.....2014:)

I come up with 241.7 million for 8 years starting in two years based on the WAR-$ formula. So less then a million a year over pay. The problem with the deal is the length and danger that comes with le more »

I wish we would have traded a reliever this spring. That would have allowed us to keep Cordero. The reason he was brought in was for insurance. The insurance was thankfully not needed. The reason we d more »

C-Pierzynski will drive me mad with his unproffesional hacking AB's. David Ross will catch most of the games in the World Series....Again. 1B-Napoli will be slightly better then last year. 2B-Pedroia more »

In response to SpacemanEephus' comment: Is a devastating splitter and slider effective in the majors if the complimenting fastball is 90-91 and flat? Is his fastball really as flat as his critics say more »

Just to remind people of our injury problems last year, we lost our 2 closers for the year and when they did pitch they were not that good. We lost 2 of our top 3 starters for 3 weeks and 3 months res more »

Something is not right with him. He is spiraling down.

Thats kind of disapointing. I expected Barnes-Workman and Ranaudo to have just missed. However, based on those numbers, it looks like none of them would have cracked the top 125 even. And Vasquez woul more »
