he's 20 years old and not married....what's the big deal?
Comment on: Red Sox defeat White Sox 6-4 in 14-inning battle in Chicago - Extra Bases - Boston.com
Posted 04/17/2014 10:25:13 EDT
they had 6 hits in 14 innings. the highest ba in the lineup is .273...gomes. offensively, they're..well....offensive. except for mujica, who isn't going to cut it, the pitching has been quite good.
Comment on: Red Sox' defensive plan for Bogaerts is a long journey, not a short stop - Tony Massarotti - Boston.com
Posted 04/16/2014 02:44:43 EDT
there's always been that question mark; particularly since he's a "big" ss and not the typical smaller, nimble guy that is the norm for the position. unfortunately, bradley jr is exhibiting some serio more »
Comment on: Early returns have been downright awful for the Red Sox - Boston Sports Blog - Boston.com
Posted 04/14/2014 12:39:03 EDT
they're painful to watch. the thought that is beginning to occur to me when i hear "its only april" is that this could be a very long season.

Posted 04/13/2014 04:16:22 EDT
while it may be early, its also possible that what you see now is what you're going to get with the sox. they have been a model of inconsistency so far. the line up as it stands just doesn't have much more »
Comment on: Is Pineda Pinetargate something to investigate? - Extra Bases - Red Sox blog
Posted 04/11/2014 01:06:59 EDT
i think the fact that farrell elected not to do anything about it is as much of a story as the fact that this guy was cheating.
Posted 04/10/2014 10:52:05 EDT
of course its not legal. he was clearly using the substance on his pitching fingers and the ball. i have no idea why farrell didn't bring it to the attention of the home plate ump. his explanation tha more »
Comment on: Step back costs Sox, Doubront chance to move forward - Extra Bases - Red Sox blog

let's not suggest that sizemore cost them the game. doubront was awful.
Comment on: What is the best lineup for the Red Sox? - Touching All the Bases - Boston.com
Posted 04/08/2014 06:02:37 EDT
if things remain as they are and bradley continues to produce, nava will be the guy sitting when victorino returns. it may be that bradley goes to center and nava and sizemore split time in left. of c more »
Comment on: A week into the Red Soxâ season, thereâs plenty to like and dislike - Adam Kaufman - Boston.com Sports
Posted 04/08/2014 10:31:57 EDT
can't disagree with any of that. we're very early in the season and one game can change a lot of perceptions; particularly negative ones. my biggest concern is the lead off spot where they are gettin more »
Comment on: Jackie Bradley Jr. stars, John Lackey sharp again as Red Sox beat Rangers, 5-1 - Extra Bases - Boston.com
Posted 04/07/2014 10:42:55 EDT
bradley is proving a lot of people wrong; including me. they way he's playing now, i don't see how you sit him let alone send him down. he's a better defensive outfielder than either nava or sizemore. more »
Comment on: Red Sox swept by Brewers at Fenway - Red Sox - Boston.com
Posted 04/06/2014 06:04:43 EDT
maybe not time to panic but i'm getting nervous. not a lot of offense in evidence. they're getting very little from the lead off spot. very few key hits and certainly no consistency. nava, gomes, pier more »
Comment on: Red Sox receive World Series rings but can't get the win in Fenway opener - Extra Bases - Boston.com
Posted 04/04/2014 07:51:25 EDT
mujica looked awful. no movement on pitches and obviously easy to hit. let's hope he gets better.....a lot better. gomes is not off to a great start either. i expect he'll come around...hopefully soon more »

Posted 04/04/2014 10:32:19 EDT
x looks like the real deal. i was very happy to see middlebrooks get off the snide. bradley looks like he is on a mission to convince the sox he belongs in the majors. scoring from first on a pop up s more »

Posted 04/02/2014 05:40:59 EDT
what a sleazy thing to do; particularly under the circumstances. unless he gives the money away, i've lost all respect for him.

Posted 03/31/2014 07:49:52 EDT
ok...that's it....send middlebrooks down, napoli strikes out way too much, bradley can't hit, lester gives up too many homers, big papi is all done, etc,etc. too soon????!!!!

sizemore has earned the job. he has to be the starter and its his position as long as he performs.

probably nave to start. don't bat victorino leadoff. he'll get hurt. xander may be an option at some point.
Comment on: David Ortiz says heâll continue baseball career elsewhere if he has to - Red Sox - Boston.com
Posted 01/27/2014 07:30:57 EST
not a good sign to be talking about this before spring training starts. the sox would be crazy to do anything too quickly. he's not going anywhere for a while.

ellsbury did what everyone expected him to do. he's would have been crazy not to take the money. its ok to give bradley a shot in cf but they better sign a quality free agent. they can't afford to hav more »

i didn't think i'd ever say it, but bring back napoli. ellsbury is likely to be gone and that will be a significant loss. the pitching should be basically intact. it will be middlebrooks and bogaerts more »
