A friend in San Francisco, a Giants fan, whose team that just lost its 8th straight game, says it's The Curse of the Panda!

You should write for the Globe, Harness, shades of Shaughnessy there

Go sawx, shut em down Joe, 4 game sweeperroo.

Panda is 28. He'll give four solid years at 3b, and probably a fifth, and clutch hits sprinkled all over that. Glad we have a dependable solid player at 3b. Total upgrade. Time will tell of course, bu more »

I see Masterson going long relief, and Owens or ERod taking his place in the starting ro by end of May. Then I think we trade for a quality starter at the deadline.

In response to harness' comment: I don't recall 'many' picking Toronto this year or in years past. I think baseball people realize that Toronto's line-up is now quite surmountable. And in an up-for-gr more »

Many pick Toronto in recent seasons, including this season once again, but so far Toronto hasn't lived up to the billing. I guess if many keep picking them, odds are eventually they'll win the divisio more »

Moon of all people, putting out the sss!

Agree on your pitching assessments at AAA Harness, esp. Owens and Wright. Yes, one needs to be wary trading with those shrewd Cards, but I agree with some of the others here on the Lackey trade, doesn more »

Of course, the season does not hinge on Koji. In baseball, the season does not hinge on any one player or role or position. There are 25 guys on the team, and maybe 40-60 guys who play for the team at more »

Great start, let's hope it continues, starting with Buch tomorrow. Didn't he think of that I'm the Ace/He's the Ace shirts? Anyway, it was a great idea, and all the guys have pitched very well the fir more »

They'll trade Craig and/or Vic. Castillo is the guy, the front office knows it and will make it happen.

Hope to "see" you there, Jete.
Posted 04/10/2015 02:48:50 EDT
You too, Jete, enjoy; even if ARod is the . . . gasp! . . . Face of the Franchise!

HanRam took him deep for a grand slam, but the wind and weather kept it in the park.
Posted 04/09/2015 12:51:21 EDT
Xander needs a big hit in a big situation. HanRam won that game with his second grandslam in anything approching normal weather, or at least the wind not blowing in. Last year when we were down late, more »

Henry Owens, JBJ, Castillo, Barnes

Turning the other cheek there Bill. So many threads degenerate into name calling that I went with that approach ( tongue planted firmly in cheek, of course :) No dumber than most threads, imho.
Posted 04/08/2015 09:03:41 EDT
Sorry to insult your intelligence, Kingface. I guess I started the thread to find out who we got for Iggy, and to express my surprise at how well he has hit in his brief major league career (.276 over more »
Posted 04/08/2015 07:24:36 EDT
Thanks Space, couldn't remember Hembree and Escobar. We definitely got a front-end big benefit from the trade, and it'll be interesting to watch Iggy's career from afar. He certainly has hit better in more »
Posted 04/08/2015 05:28:24 EDT
How's the weather look? Think they'll play?
Posted 04/08/2015 05:20:24 EDT
In response to SpacemanEephus' comment: In response to soxnewmex's comment: 4 for 4 today, with a double and 3 runs scored. Hear he's a pretty good fielder, too. See if he can stay on the field. Peavy more »

Sorry, tried to correct spelling error of Iglesias on headline but didn't take.

4 for 4 today, with a double and 3 runs scored. Hear he's a pretty good fielder, too. See if he can stay on the field. Peavy's gone, what did we get for him?
Posted 04/07/2015 03:26:32 EDT
Jacoby is a good player, but we were right to let him go instead of pay him big bucks. Start to think about the same about Lester.
