  • Forum Post: Betts and Castillo to compete for Opening Day CF

    Posted 03/04/2015 01:24:18 EST

    Apparantly Danny Watkins, the referring area scout, didn't check with you when he advised us to draft him in the 5th round of the 2011 draft as a short stop. And, had you bothered to read the article more »

    You are 100% correct. While there was no on field shouting match or other wanton dsplay of rebellion, there is no denying that he pouted ad made his displeasure known to the team when the move was mad more »

    Posted 03/04/2015 09:55:12 EST

    I had expected the obviously necessary moves to be made by now. I'm guessing Shane is being shopped, and will be closely inspected by many teams this spring training. I also still think Xander could, more »

    Posted 03/02/2015 11:16:33 EST

    I think .265 with 10-14 dingers should be about right. But I think he's going to struggle at times defensively, as he works hard to hit well. With our "ground ball" starters he's going to have many ch more »

  • Forum Post: Hamels/Lee to Sox update

    Posted 02/25/2015 09:51:04 EST

    Well said good sir! Your logic is beyond dispute IMO, and I really hope the Red Sox management wakes up before it's too late and gets something done. Another point to consider is that we have NEVER be more »

  • Forum Post: Red Sox to sign Yoan Moncada ...

    Posted 02/23/2015 10:03:12 EST

    A bit of a head scratcher for me to be honest. We balk at picking up Shields, whom we desperately need NOW, but go all in for a guy 3yrs away from the bigs, and pay big bucks to do it? Don't get me wr more »

  • Forum Post: Whos camp are you in?

    Posted 02/18/2015 08:48:31 EST

    This is exactly my position. I also fear a possible sophmore slump from Vaz this season, as pitchers will try to work around him a tad more. Can he make the adjustments needed to even come close to a more »

  • Forum Post: Sox reportedly make offer for Hamels?

    Posted 02/17/2015 08:05:28 EST

    I think we really need to make something happen here. We have an OF log jam and some bottle necked prospects trapped behind vets. Our farm is stocked wide and deep, if we wouldn't trade youth now...wh more »

  • Forum Post: Americas Great Health Care

    Posted 02/16/2015 12:31:29 EST

    The sad truth is the American people have the very worst health care system in existance in the world today. We have great doctors and technology, so that's why Sultans fly here to get treatment for w more »

  • Forum Post: JBJ

    Posted 02/15/2015 08:28:54 EST

    JBJ could have an OPS of 1250 after spring training, and he'd still deserve no chance to win a spot in our already crowded OF. Nobody was harder on JBJ than I last season-nor more accurate in assessin more »

    I won't be done with this thread until the mental midgets at ESPN have apologized for lying and promulgating a false story. The NFL Commish needs to be thrown out, and the NFL needs to offer a public more »

    Posted 02/11/2015 09:32:09 EST

    How do the Red Sox not make a serious play for this guy? DUMB!!!!! He went faaar cheaper than I would have ever thought, but reports suggest no offer was even made by the Red Sox. That's going to make more »

    I gotta go with James Shields....oops! I forgot, the Red Sox napped and didn't even make an offer for him. Hmmm.....maybe Panda?

  • Forum Post: Pitching wins... what exactly?

    Posted 02/06/2015 08:44:38 EST

    Good points all Notin and I agree with most of what you said. Absolutely BP's are a HUGE part of any pitching staff, though in a short 5 or 7 game series nothing trumps a stud ace starter-including Mi more »

  • Forum Post: Sox-Miley Agree to 3 year deal!

    Posted 02/06/2015 08:20:12 EST

    I know why we made the deal. We're rolling the dice that he'll fit in well and perform at max capability. But ask yourself why HE would want this deal. Is he expecting to perform poorly...and thus thi more »

  • Forum Post: Pitching wins... what exactly?

    Posted 02/05/2015 05:46:29 EST

    I'd sign Shields, but he's the lesser pitcher among Scherzer, Lester, and Hamels. He's also most certainly not going to be the bargain some here seem to think he is. He'll be signed for roughly 6 yrs more »

    Posted 02/05/2015 08:44:49 EST

    Looks like I may have said we'd be fav's for 2015+16-I stand corrected. Of course, you'll never hear me predict a WS win for any team before the season starts...too many variables and too much time to more »

    Posted 02/02/2015 12:35:57 EST

    Well, if the shoe fits... I consider dice rolls like this to be a waste of time, done more to give the appearance of addressing our needs, than actually meeting them. No puppies were slaughtered, and more »

    Posted 02/02/2015 11:23:26 EST

    I completely agree. Had they scored on that play Carroll would be a genious right now. I agree with those saying I'd give Lynch one shot at it 1st, with a plan to call a quick TO if the effort failed. more »

  • Forum Post: Pitching wins... what exactly?

    Posted 02/02/2015 01:43:09 EST

    I have never said adding Hamels or Shields would make us favorites to win the World Series. I said adding them to our present team would give us a shot to legitimately compete for a ring. I do believe more »

  • Forum Post: Pitching wins... what exactly?

    Posted 02/01/2015 03:24:52 EST

    The thing to remember is the disproportionate impact aces have on a playoff series. If we added King Felix miraculously to our present team, could anyone reasonably argue that his pitching 2 or 3 time more »
