MALE, Brooklyn

About Me: Hello Red Sox Fans, Live in Brooklyn, formerly Longmeadow,Ma. I go a long ways back as a Red Sox,Celtics and (don't hate me) NY Giants fan. While I rarely go in person to a game, because I think Sports are over priced and we are taken for suckers, what with the over saturation of commerials including all the freakin billboards, I still love sports.

    We have an outfielder who I think is flying under the rader. He fields and runs like Sweeney but hits with power. 19hrs last year in something like 400 ABS in minors I believe last year.  His name is more »

    Hey Spaceman! I'm still pissed that they traded you and Bernie away. But, hey, that Stan Papi was some ball player, no? Anyho, I think you got it exactly right. The chips lie on those starters. Both L more »

    You, know I think its kind of fun to watch. Here's a few random things about it... 1. Team USA. Since when is "Willie Bloomquist" an all star? Half of the Pitching is manned by    guys I never heard o more »

    This team could realistically lead the league in doubles (like last year), smack 200 taters, and steal 150 bases. While not in the same offensive tier as the Angels or Tigers, they might just lead the more »

    Unbelievable! Don't get me wrong, I love watching Ellsbury play. However, last year he hit a whooping 4 dingers and had almost zero impact in an injury plaqued year. For that, he gets a raise??? - Nin more »

    Good Morning Red Sox Nation! Read some great responses to my post. A couple of additional thoughts on my part... Acceves. I'm not quite as hooked on him as some of you. Bard. If he goes back to throwi more »

    Soft, I liked your response. Good points. To me, Tazawa looks like the real deal and has to stay up. Acceves, looked lost by the end of the season. Maybe, he has to go. Carpenter, could be very undera more »

    Zill (may I call you that for short?), The thing about sitting too long and then throwing too hard - I'm not sure I quite agree. It always seemed crazy to me to have a Pitcher warm up by throwing 50 o more »

    Sorry, but so far, I don't see it happening for any of these lads. Cecchini really needs to power up. Swihart, whos not that big, needs to ave 280 - 300 and show superior defense. Marrero seems ordina more »

    If Ciriaco had been given the chance to start in 2013, is it fair to assume he would have given us average to above ave. defense which at least is equals to Drews? Here's my guess on say 140 games of more »
