And I believe those numbers don't even factor in tonights HR. We probably have a very special player in Mookie Betts. He hasn't even really started hitting that well yet. If he were hitting as well as more »

Mookie has .9 more WAR value than Hanley Ramirez right now. .2 higher than Dustin Pedroia. .7 higher than David Ortiz. .6 higher than Xander Bogaerts. I think Mookie has a higher WAR value than any ot more »

McCutcheon currently is hitting .189. Harness would probably release him.

To me the main question for this team is when does Craig get demoted. He has an option and he needs PT. Castillo will be ready soon and JBJ is still doing very well. Why keep Craig on the 25 man when more »

Sheriff Red has spoken! All the guns slowly make their way back into their holsters and everyone backs away from the poker table! I bet Mookie still puts up one of the top 2-3 WAR values on the team t more »

Historically Mookie has destroyed left handed pitching and this year he is under .200 against left handed pitching. That's going to change quickly.

I beat the "don't sign Salty" thing to death and got nothing but grief for it. Now look what happened.
Posted 05/05/2015 07:08:13 EDT
Remember when we were arguing about Salty and so many of you were advocating re signing him. Well, he is now available at league minimum and has officially been cut. The Marlins couldn't even move $1 more »

Forum Post: Mookie Betts reconsidered
Posted 05/04/2015 10:24:05 EDT
Betts is in the top 20 in baseball for average velocity of his hits and # 16 in baseball for average distance hit. He's trying to drive the ball and he's had some success but they aren't dropping in f more »

I think a big part of the approach is to acquire guys on 1 year deals like Porcello and Masterson and see how they fit and what their work habits are like, how they adapt to the arm strengthening prog more »
Posted 05/04/2015 12:47:41 EDT
Look at so many pitchers after they sign a big deal. It's almost automatic that they aren't worth it. Look at Tanaka even from last year. Lot's of us thought he would be a stud, and he was, but one in more »
Posted 05/04/2015 12:45:17 EDT
The Redsox have had chances to sign top pitchers a number of times recently and they have gone the value route, with guys like Masterson, Porcello, Miley...etc. It is pretty clear they are going with more »

Sending Mookie to AAA is just dumb. There is no way to describe the idea without it being insulting to a degree. It's 100 AB approximately. With that logic, apparently we should be sending Napoli and more »

Ok Harness. This year's 100 AB sums it all up. They should trade Betts while they can huh.
I'm fully anticipating about 6 years of belly laughs.

Another day at the office. Oh well, time to go home. Let's hope the Sox start pulling out of this funk. I listened to the game on the radio today and it seemed like we were making contact but they jus more »

You've posted 25 times in the last 7 hours alone Harness. Since 3:40PM today EDT. Lots of research and typing. You must have a stenographer.
Posted 05/03/2015 10:50:07 EDT
The bottom line harness is that you are clearly grasping at straws to even come close to justifying your Betts analysis. Your coin flip is going to fail. Time to flip it again for another 500 posts.

Some people have multiple identities just to mislead and create havoc. I just wanted to keep my son's company out of this. Excuse me for trying to be a good father.
