  • Forum Post: once again bobby v waits to long to take out the starter

    Posted 04/16/2012 02:31:53 EDT

    Also at this time of year, Bobby V is still trying to figure out what he has.  How do players respond in certain situations...  It may result in a loss here or there, but truly understanding the capab more »

    Wow these rankings seem way out of sorts.  Roy Holliday is good but he isn't as good as they make him appear.  Put him back into the American League and he returns to a good pitcher but not an ace.  R more »

  • Forum Post: What would it take for fans to stop selling out fenway?

    Posted 01/31/2012 04:02:28 EST

    You know it is funny, I have been to like 6 or 7 games in the last 10 years at Fenway.  I enjoyed every game, and they lost every one.  I tell my wife we can't go because they always lose and so we mu more »

  • Forum Post: Red Sox Have Made Offer To Edwin Jackson/Sox prefer Jackson to Roy Oswalt-Who do you prefer Jackson or Oswalt?

    There are ways to lower your Luxury Tax burden even if you give one of them a $9 or 10 M deal.  Give them a 1 year deal for $10M and a Player Option for $3M.  This makes the deal worth $13M over 2 yea more »

  • Forum Post: Multi-Year Contracts of the Epstein Age -How did they work out?

    Posted 06/18/2011 01:05:48 EDT

    I'll take a 3 year UZR rating over the 3 year Fldg% stat everyday of the week to decide who is a better fielder. Posted by moonslav59 The problem with UZR is how arbitrary it really is.  Ellsbury is n more »

    Let's see, Double Header the night before, 2 more games before an off day, had to call up Bowden to be in the pen, not yet sure if you can pull Jenks back into the bullpen and have him be effective.   more »

    In Response to Re: One hundred and ninty five years: Let's not forget to point out that you pretty much have to combine all boston franchises' championships just to have more than the Yankees alone. P more »

  • Forum Post: Dan Shaughnessy: “the Red Sox haven’t won a World Series on the level since beating the Brooklyn Robins in five games in 1916;it’s 95 years and counting. What do you think?

    Posted 04/25/2011 01:54:50 EDT

    Without context Shaughnessy is a joker anyway.  How many 'legit' titles have there been since 1918? Without context it really doesn't matter.  Also Ortiz has not been confirmed to be on the list of ap more »

  • Forum Post: Gordon Edes takes Daisuke Matsuzaka to task for his disappointing tenure with the Red Sox. Do you agree?

    Posted 04/18/2011 01:59:57 EDT

    While Daisuke may not be what was advertised, when he hasn't been fighting injuries he has been fairly effective.  I would say he is a #4 pitcher making maybe #3 pitcher salary.  When he is effective more »

    Posted 02/18/2009 04:43:57 EST

    While I like Lowell a lot as a player and a leader (at least from appearances), he was injured last year for much of the year and he didn't help the team much through the year because of it. There was more »

  • Forum Post: Trade Wakefield [to Arizona]

    Posted 02/13/2009 04:13:21 EST

    First, Wakefield would have to approve any trade since he is a 10/5 guy. Second why would he agree to a trade when essentially the deal is perpetual options to the Sox until either the Sox don't think more »

    Posted 02/02/2009 08:22:43 EST

    Clement wasn't a bad signing, it ended up being on balance not a great result but it was a good signing. Matzusaka wasn't 103M he is 51M, the posting fee didn't go to Dice-K or Boras in any way. Rente more »

    Not sure how this conversation relates to the Red Sox or sports in general even. That being said, GITMO is a farse and should be closed. Not because I don't think terrorists should be brought to trial more »

    Yet more amusement from folks. It is amusing that while Manny wasn't here our runs per game went up not down. It is also amusing to note that Bay's numbers come out almost exactly where Manny's were p more »

    I am going to say that Renteria wasn't a bad signing, it was a player that a lot of people didn't understand. He is a national league player, this isn't something stat sheets and such can really show. more »

    I agree, why is race a consideration. You get the best available players for the price and you go with them. In sports black atheletes are not the minority. I don't like the idea of racial profiling o more »
