  • Forum Post: Do We Really Need To See Middlebrooks Any More?

    Posted 09/21/2014 08:49:57 EDT

    Complete and utter nonsense. In the 1st place I carefully seperated Middlebrooks from the "kids" who are much younger. He's in a diffeent situation, as I pointed out, yet he was also mismanaged this y more »

  • Forum Post: have we ever had such an electric defensive OF as Rumsey-Cespy-JB?

    Posted 09/21/2014 08:14:36 EDT

    I'm glad somebodies paying attention! Nava is the forgotten man in our OF conversations and he's almost back to .270 after a horrific start to the season. He's hit a ton since the allstar break and pl more »

  • Forum Post: Shane Injurino

    Posted 09/21/2014 07:48:15 EDT

    I have no illusions about Injurino (Love that moniker!). He is a total sissy and is happily collecting millions for nothing. It epitamizes all that is wrong with the MLB CBA. We need to move to an NFL more »

  • Forum Post: What Was the Best Haul?

    Posted 09/21/2014 07:35:32 EDT

    I think I like B, but that would only be the case if a sports psychologist could get Craig's head screwed back on. Man alive, I don't think I've ever seen a post trade collapse this severe! Granted he more »

  • Forum Post: Do We Really Need To See Middlebrooks Any More?

    Posted 09/21/2014 07:08:43 EDT

    To me this whole "let's watch Middlebrooks implode to zero value right before our very eyes" is exactly the kind of mismanagement of our youth movement I've been harping on here. Somebody should be fi more »

  • Forum Post: unthinkable admission!

    Posted 09/09/2014 02:07:09 EDT

    It sounds like a worthy cause friend and I know KC fans are some of the best in baseball. As our season is officially over, I can wish your friend well as his fight goes on. I know you would wish deat more »

  • Forum Post: Let's Keep Vasquez

    Posted 09/09/2014 01:59:02 EDT

    Well said. We can have 1 or maybe even 2 easy outs in the line up if the other 7 are serious hitters. But trying to run with 3,4 or 5 low OPS guys is a recipe for disaster. Our pitching will be weaker more »

  • Forum Post: JBJ: Welcome to Boston

    Posted 09/09/2014 01:51:59 EDT

    The man clearly needs at least 500 more AB's at AAA before being brought back up, which should ONLY occur if he's hitting. All prospects should have at least 1000 AB's at AAA before being promoted to more »

  • Forum Post: Betts over Bogaerts?

    Posted 09/09/2014 01:45:41 EDT

    The truth, and nothing but the truth, is what will lead our beloved Red Sox out of the hole they've dug for themselves. Sugar coating what's happened, and failing to learn from our mistakes, will doom more »

  • Forum Post: Betts over Bogaerts?

    Posted 09/08/2014 09:01:21 EDT

    From your lips to the baseball gods ears mate. I think 30 homers is wildly optimistic for Xander, who is clearly struggling to handle MLB pitching still. At 21 years of age his body is still growing/m more »

  • Forum Post: Betts over Bogaerts?

    Posted 09/08/2014 04:36:14 EDT

    With a small sample size to work with it sure looks like Betts can handle MLB pitching, and also that Xander can't very well. While I desperately want Xander to be the stud he's been predicted to be, more »

  • Forum Post: JBJ: Welcome to Boston

    Posted 09/08/2014 12:59:09 EDT

    Watching the Red Sox chronically fail to effectively manage JBJ's development hurts my head! Somebody should be fired, fired, FIRED for their stupidity. The guy hits .200 for a full year at the MLB le more »

  • Forum Post: Edward Mujica 2015 Red Sox Closer?

    Posted 09/01/2014 09:15:53 EDT

    Mujica is mediocrity defined. He's fairly cheap at $4.75 million for next season, so I don't mind him in the pen somewhere, but he's certainly not closer material or even back up closer material. Teak more »

  • Forum Post: Middlebrooks? He's just a bad hitter

    Posted 08/30/2014 12:20:30 EDT

    You're a more patient man than I. I'm calling him an official bust right now and am prepared to cut bait with him. The man is uncoachable, in the sense that no matter what is said to him or by whom, h more »

  • Forum Post: Brewers Fail to Land Morneau, so What About Napoli or Craig?

    Posted 08/30/2014 11:59:05 EDT

    The bottom line is we are now a different team and if we hope to contend next season we're going to have to bash teams with offensive prowess. You don't accomplish that by constantly trying to unload more »

  • Forum Post: Brewers Fail to Land Morneau, so What About Napoli or Craig?

    Posted 08/30/2014 01:30:28 EDT

    We need Napoli next season IMO. We have enough spots to fill without looking for more, and with a beefed up line up he could be a potent bat. I agree he's not really worth it on paper now, but think w more »

  • Forum Post: Fast Tracking Betts For The Wrong Position

    Posted 08/27/2014 10:26:54 EDT

    I would love to see Betts tried at SS for September to see if he could handle the position for next season. He's had some limited exposure in the minors, but as a 2nd baseman should be able to handle more »

  • Forum Post: Is anyone on this team worth more than Mookie?

    Posted 08/27/2014 09:40:30 EDT

    I love your enthusiasm hombre! I too am excited to watch Betts and to see a smart player like he pick up the game at the MLB level. I wish he could possibly transition to SS, because I think at 21 Xan more »

    Posted 08/25/2014 09:07:42 EDT

    Agreed. I guess it's all water under the bridge now, and the focus has got to be on next season. I do like some of the recent moves and how they position us going into next season. I don't believe we more »

    Posted 08/24/2014 03:44:48 EDT

    Ummm....ok he has a lifetime OPS of .783 and not the .800 I estimated it at. But your passionate defense of the Red Sox unwillingness to best the Yanks crazy contract for Ells is completely unnecessar more »

  • Forum Post: JBJ bashing and i doubt Mookie Betts has the answer

    Posted 08/24/2014 09:15:58 EDT

    Nicely said ABQDan! There is also the matter of physical development. Sometimes players just need some age on them. Xander is 21 yrs old and JBJ 24. Both will be stronger and better if they stay exact more »

    Posted 08/24/2014 09:01:01 EDT

    You are 100% correct AL34. I can't imagine a worse rookie performance year for us in my lifetime. If it wasn't for Brock Holt's stunning success it would have been truly embarrassing. I think they're more »

    Jacoby is a lifetime .294 hitter with an .800 OPS from the centerfield position...what's not to like?? His contract was too high and the Spankees outbid us, but so what?! He's still a STUD player even more »
