That's the outfield alright, several of us have wanted this to be the outfield for quite some time now, and this is why. It's only going to improve, and it's pretty exciting already.

Nice dream dg, now back to reality :-)

No shortage of candidates. Despite his fine outing last night, I cast my vote for Porcello. Remember when we got him, most thought he was a sure #2 who could become an ace. What a laugh!

I'd rather keep both for now, a lot of injuries at that position (Vasquez himself is a case in point). I'd give Swihart a 1B mitt and have him practice the position. Swihart seems to be a very good al more »

OP so true.

He's going to be a good one, and Owens was good tonight too. Very high on Swihart Castillo JBJ Owens ERod Swihart Vaz Betts and Bogaerts. Hope we don't trade more than one from that crowd.

How long before he's Dumbrowski? :-) Anyway, he can't do worse than last place (two seasons in a row). Ben C. made some bad pitching trades and non-signings, it must be said. But he did win in 2013. W more »

He's just trying to fit in with the rest of the staff by getting his ERA up around 5.00. Seriously though, don't know if there's anything to the discrepency or it's a coincidence but will keep an eye more »

Believe JBJ has turned the corner, and he'll be in Boston what he's been at every level in the game, a great centerfielder with a high OBP. Like the way Swihart's been hitting too.
Posted 08/08/2015 08:19:17 EDT
Oh sorry, jbj is in the linup :)
For raider: I well aware that de Aza has been better than Bradley, but de Aza is a known quantity and doesn't need mlb experience.
Posted 08/08/2015 07:18:42 EDT
Why de Aza over jbj? I don't get that. I think we know what de Aza is.
Posted 08/02/2015 09:49:47 EDT
Can't believe Farrell pinch hit for JBJ late in the game. We're playing for nothing, but if JBJ is pressing, and I believe he is, Farrell just made it harder for him. Show confidence in the guy, just more »
Posted 08/01/2015 11:21:48 EDT
Play Castillo JBJ Betts Swihart Bogaerts as everyday starters (Betts can play some 2nd too), put Johnson and Owens in the rotation. Rotation should be ERod, Porcello, Miley, Johnson, Owens. Wright sho more »

For Pete's sake, let it be, let the man play out the season, what vultures and ghouls!

I wouldn't do it, no way, no mas Crawdaddy.
Posted 07/31/2015 12:01:12 EDT
I don't understand it, and would like someone to explain the matter. He was out of professional baseball a couple years and has since played in 40 games in the majors with a grand total of a 122 at ba more »

Love Nava. Sorry he has to go. Wouldn't be surprised to see him in the world series this year, working a walk to start a rally for the winning club.

Play him every day the rest of the season, he's been great at Pawtucket, think he's more ready now than when they played him before. Anyway, doesn't hurt to find out, and his defense and arm is such t more »

Put in an interim manager, change the stodgy unimaginative entitled atmosphere. And I like a lot of the moves Moon suggests with players, particularly the outfield.
Posted 07/26/2015 12:14:41 EDT
By August 1st I hope, start getting adjusted for next season.
