Comment on: Excited About the Prospects of James Shields Joining the Red Sox? Hell, No - Eric Wilbur's Sports Blog - Boston.com

Agree on Shields. Disagree on Reynolds. I find him to be totally listenable, knowledgeable (obviously), full of good insights, and head and shoulders above McCarver. I think the broadcast team of Buck more »

Yup. It's the only way I will watch a game anymore. When I tell people I prefer to watch a baseball game over an NFL game, I cite the fact that at least for baseball, the commercial breaks only happen more »

I don't think even Freddie makes that catch, Jim, and I loved me some Freddie Lynn. He was spectacular going back on balls to the wall and abusing his body crashing into it, but I don't recall ever se more »

And I believe they need to abandon their working the count philosophy. Our pitchers are constantly victimized by opposition batters swinging at first pitch fastballs. Other than Ortiz and AJ our hitte more »

Although, Ryan's contract averaged out at just over a million per annum, Catfish Hunter was the first to bank a million in one year, albeit as an up front signing bonus, some five years earlier than R more »

Thanks fpr the link to your Sept. 4th column, Chad. I enjoyed it just as much as I did the first time around. And thanks for a great season of covering the Sox. Boston strong!

Glad to see Ross getting his due and Farrell finally giving these crucial starts to the better backstop. Rossie is a rock solid, take charge catcher who is more likely to make contact with the bat. more »

And let Bogaerts take over for Drew, too.

Seattle wins. Don't even send Shane out to the field now.

Assuming Seattle can hold on, I'd sit Vic and put JBJ out there. Let Shane rest up as much as possible now.

As did RS.

And what happened to Brock Holt? Did he get sent down? Seems he would be a good choice to play 3B with the left side of the infield providing nothing at the plate lately.

But batting Drew against LH pitchers is hurting them. The team seemed to be clicking with either Holt or Snyder at third and Jose at short. As everyone knows, Jose is just flat out the better SS. H more »

But why not ride Iglesias' hot bat higher in the order so that he potentially gets one more AB per game?
