As predicted, Victorino couldn't stay on the field, Craig wouldn't produce and we should have traded Nava. It would have been great if JBJ could have generated some results as he would have been a goo more »

In response to moonslav59's comment: In response to harness' comment: Who's been one of the worst leadoff hitters in the game? Mookie Betts. There are 173 MLb players who qualify with PAs. Here's some more »

Now leading the team in RBI?....Mookie Betts.

It's hard to understand how this team is bad overall defensively except for Hanley. We should be about average or better everywhere else. I'm sure some guys are having bad years defensively besides Ha more »

Holt has been at 3rd for only 3-4 games this week and he's already blown 2 tags which both cost us a run, plus missed several balls which maybe Panda would have had. Not good.

Castillo will probably be with the team by Saturday. It's only a matter of time.

Harness is flat out on the mat in the middle of the ring with Ali looking down at him shaking his fist. The ref starts pounding the mat with his hand...."One, .......Two.......Three....the bell goes D more »

I stand corrected Amp! I thought he was smaller!

Excuse me Harness, but you are the one who kept comparing Betts to Holt. You try and keep up .... Devil David and yes, even Harness, have points about Mookie putting too many balls in the air but Mook more »

In response to moonslav59's comment: RBI's are a function of opportunity. Ellsbury has less opportunity with NY's lower third of their line-up as opposed to Boston's, especially when Hannigan was play more »

If the move is afoot, it's probably Vic's hamstring...

A lot of analysis indicates that a manager should put his 3rd best offensive performer in the lead off spot. Is Holt our 3rd best offensive performer? NWIH.
Posted 05/21/2015 01:38:41 EDT
Harness, are 5 HR better than 1? Are 8 doubles better than 4 ( Betts actually has 9 now after tonight's game)? Are 39 runs created from the lead off spot better than 35? And I'm comparing him to Ellsb more »

What a combination: Chapman and Uehara!
Posted 05/20/2015 08:13:19 EDT
I'm not sure how good of a pitch caller Swihart is but I think he will hit just fine for a catcher. I'd leave him in the majors at this point.
We're going to need him.

It sure looks like Ellsbury is having a good season huh. We he is, but let's drill down into it some: HR: Ellsbury: 1 Mookie: 5 DOUBLES: Ellsbury: 4 MOOKIE: 8 TOTAL RUNS PRODUCED OFFENSIVELY ( more »

We are only 2.5 games out, and starting a homestand. If Papi and Napoli start hitting, I like the recent trend lines.
Posted 05/20/2015 11:59:38 EDT
I'd like to keep Mookie driving the ball. His swing is level enough. He should keep his existing approach and just get a little more luck. He can help that some by leveling his swing a wee bit but he more »

I don't think we could have gotten anyone to even pick up $5 mil of Victorino's contract with no prospect at all coming back last winter. He was considered a huge risk and rightfully so. He's still hi more »
