    Just a reminder. Ted Williams played in only one world series. The greatest hitter (since the Babe) that I have ever seen (no, I didn't see Cobb) had these stats: Plate Appearances: 30 BA: .200 (5 for more »

    This kid's Pawtucket outings have been impressive. The stats, that is. Will we see him in Bostonthis year? We have a bench full of "5-inning-oitchers". Any chance this kid might go 6?

    Posted 04/25/2015 12:36:53 EDT

    Why in the world would anyone want to trade Brock Holt? It seems every time some Sox player turns out to be something special, people are wringing their hands, and getting ready to trade him!

    Betts, Holt, Pedroia and Pablo are the only four position players who have any energy at all. And you want to dump one of them? And play Napoli, Victorino and Craig? I don't think so.

    What's the penalty for trading a "super utility player"? You probably get fired.

    Name the number one pitcher in baseball. That's who I would want for Holt.

    I wonder what Farrell has against the Hit and Run. It's maddening! He has the best combo he could ever have, and Petey gets another DP in his stats, and the Sox are gone again.
