Comment on: Ortiz got what he wanted in new deal - Extra Bases - Red Sox blog
Posted 03/26/2014 10:48:07 EDT
Will the Ortiz bashers please give it a break. Who else could produce and be as clutch as this man has been. Starting Pitchers only pitch every 5-6 days (and you already know what they make). Some more »
Comment on: Sox make qualifying offers to Drew, Ellsbury and Napoli - Extra Bases - Red Sox blog
Posted 11/05/2013 08:49:36 EST
The big question here is... If Ells was on another team right now and becoming a free agent, would we be drooling over him and offering him Crawford money or more? If the answer is yes, then we shoul more »

I also don't understand why Farrell doesn't at least give Bogaerts a chance to play for Drew. Drew has come up in some big situations and hasn't come thru. I know he is playing the Left hand hitting more »

I'm already done with Hanrahan. I've not been impressed yet and he just blew the game. Give Bailey back the closer role.

It's too bad that he wasn't better at the business side of the company. The game he created is actually really really good. I wish another game company would pick up the rights to it so they could sup more »
Comment on: 'Schilling's company gives RI bad $1.1M check'
Posted 05/18/2012 09:01:59 EDT
In Defense of Schilling, the game his company created (Kingdoms of Alamur - Reckoning) is a great game. As an avid RPG game player, I bought the game on release. It has all the best features that I li more »
Comment on: Josh Beckett needs to go for the good of the franchise - Boston Sports Blog - Boston.com
Posted 05/11/2012 09:23:56 EDT
Unfortunately I agree. It's time to clean house and bring up the AAA players that give a crap. I think if Beckett is gone, Lester & Buch might come around and straighten up. He's a bad influence on bo more »
Comment on: 'Red Sox acquire center fielder Marlon Byrd from Cubs'
Posted 04/23/2012 08:51:40 EDT
Bowden was starting to look like he had figured something out. He had a decent 3.0 ERA this year so far (better than most of the pitchers in the bullpen). Why dump him for another temp player who is n more »

Keep Wake for insurance, offer Tek a coaching job. Both still stay with the sox. more »

I'm willing to give the guy a chance. If you've been on the losing side of teams your whole career, wouldn't you be a little bitter and grumpy? Maybe being on a great team will help him with the attit more »
Comment on: 'GM Epstein saves his best prospects'

CraftyandSly1, Tom Gordon had a streak of over 50 games (54 I think, over 40 in one year) in the late 1990s, so Paps has a way to go yet, but it is a positive direction. He looked really good against more »

Posted 07/12/2011 11:45:48 EDT
User Image drh042003, the reason David had rough ending to 2009 and rough start to 2010, was probably because he was coming back from an injury. It took him a couple years to get back to form. Also, b more »
Comment on: 'Clouds are hovering over Red Sox'
Posted 04/14/2011 08:34:26 EDT
Couple of things I would suggest. First, put Lowrie in at SS, see how he does for a week. Let our Captain catch every other day. The Sox seem to do better with him catching. Stick with a Lineup for mo more »

Posted 02/23/2011 08:46:01 EST
This kid is getting the whole experience. Learning the profession from a young age. He should be really good down the road and hopefully he has fun. That's where David is surely to rub off. You must h more »

I can't wait for the base stealing competition between Ells & Crawford. You gotta believe there's going to be a gentleman's bet about who's going to steal the most bases. This is going to be a fun yea more »
Comment on: 'Red Sox interested in reliever Wheeler'
Posted 12/16/2010 11:54:35 EST
I'm all for a Pedro reunion. If he gets himself in shape and can work out of the bullpen, he might be a good addition (and if the price is right). It would bring back some of the fun in the dugout tha more »

So can he play left field if we resign Beltre?? He can buy a new glove.... Just Kidding..... Ha Ha Ha..... Nice to see a short term deal on a good left fielder or a shorter long term deal with Crawfor more »
Comment on: 'Red Sox complete Gonzalez deal'
Posted 12/06/2010 10:02:21 EST
If Bill Hall is game to be re-signed at a much reduced salary, that would give us someone who could play left and a multitude of other positions too. And he did hit better as the season went on. Not m more »

bcp33bosox, you are correct. I wouldn't want to see that scenario either. Just pointing out that he did fill in once in great while. Can he be taught to play left field. Can't be any worse than Manny more »
Posted 12/06/2010 09:25:48 EST
bcp33bosox, to be fair, Beltre actually played SS 3-4 times and 2nd base once in his Major league career. But it's still not a valid option. more »
Posted 12/06/2010 09:16:13 EST
JBCNH - I believe Pedroia played SS in the Minors before switching to 2nd. So that is plausible, but not likely. He is an excellent 2nd baseman, so not sure why you would want to switch him. I have al more »
Comment on: 'Miller, Morgan out at 'Sunday Night Baseball''
Posted 11/09/2010 08:12:34 EST
Against the majority of posters here, I liked Joe Morgan, didn't like Miller. Jon would constantly pronounce certain player's names the way they were spelled, instead of the correct pronunciation. Dro more »

Curt Schilling and Kevin Millar. That's a team I'd like to see. Could do shots of JD during commercial breaks. LOL more »
