I posted item in a long post in a discussion with harness on another thread. Does anyone realize that Sandoval is hitting just .146 since May 11? Actually, .140 since May 12. (He went 1 for 5 on May more »

I'm not ready to give up on Ortiz. I didn't have 30-100 expectations for him this season. I was expecting him to slow down, so I was hoping for around 25 homers and 85 RBIs and hit around .255 to .265 more »

Harness, I can't really agree with you on some of criticisms of Farrell and Betts. First Farrell, you are critical of him for waiting too long in making some of the lineup changes. Yet if you recall, more »

I think the Betts-Ellsubry comparison is why you look at all the numbers. If you just look at BA/OBP and OPS, then yes, Ellsbury is having a much better year. But numbers can be empty numbers too. You more »
Forum Post: Would you consider swapping Papi and Panda's batting order now?
Posted 05/19/2015 12:37:58 EDT
I wouldn't consider a move -- yet. Ask again in two more weeks.
I think the Sox have bigger issues, namely Napoli at 1B. I expected him to be better this year. So much for having a good spring.
