Have no fear, 20M .275 OBP Crawford is near.

Red Sox are in a lot of trouble, with only half the season to play. The Rays look to be the class of the league. What they are doing to the NL is dominant.
Posted 06/29/2011 12:44:05 EDT
Cameron has been bad in a mop role. Crawford deserves an extension, with his .275 OBP. Extend Wastefield, Varitek and Crawford. Cameron's play has been the what's holding this team back. Wastefield ha more »

Don't do anything to throw Wastefield off his rhythm. His ERA is under 5, and he has been the workhorse on this team. He is the team leader, firing up his team with all that fire in his belly. more »

Tito always saves his water until after the fire has burned the building to the ground. Brilliant to put DMac in the 5 hole, getting the only extra base hit. It had a catalystic affect on the rest of more »

Nothing sad about booting Wakefield.
Forum Post: In Red Sox rotation, the squeeze is on:three men for two spots-Lackey,Miller, Wakefield;Which one of these doesn’t belong?
Posted 06/28/2011 07:15:36 EDT
Given Wake's WHIP for the few months of 2011, he should be the #2 starter in the rotation and the Playoffs. Wakefield is a top of the rotation guy, trapped in #9 starter's body. more »

Wakefield to the DL role. Miller stays in rotation for now. Doubrant to the lefty pen role. more »

Do not put weak hitter in the 5 spot! Move Scutaro to #2 and put Pedroia in the 5 hole. Tito can be quite dense. more »

Phillies fans are bad, but they aren't stupid enough to want to see Wakefield over Miller, Aceves and Doubrant. Only in Boston can that happen. more »

The Dodgers would be stupid to trade Kemp for Ellsbury. Yes they save some money, but they are only getting one extra year untill a BORAS client free agent. For what they are giving up long term talen more »

DL Wastefield and get Lackey looked at. If Lackey needs a long term DL, call up Doubrant. Keep Wastefield on the DL as long as possible. more »

HGH can be detected by testing. It's called blood testing, which the MLBPA refuse to allow, just as they refused to allow any testing for steroids until the Congressional threat of a public law. more »

the trades mentioned for Kemp are down right laughable! There isn't anything laughable about a trade offer of Ellsbury, Lowrie and Doubrant, with the Dodgers also being allowed to swap out Lowrie or D more »

Red Sox have had some bad management and two horrible patches of play. But, unless one of the core players has a long term DL, the Yankees will be in the rear view mirror and getting smaller and small more »

You are assuming only Wakefield could do what he's done in those innings, not that his ERA in part-time dutry is anything to brag about. Your assumption is wrong. more »
