A Bridge Too Far, if you want a name for it.

Is it safe to finally call up Castillo...even now? nope
No, they need a few more weeks to properly evaluate Vic's general calf soreness.

In response to BogieAt12oclock's comment: Good to know. Hey, it could be worse; we could actually be watching these games at FENWAY. Ain't that the truth. I feel bad for the folks shelling out large more »

You have to keep it all in perspective. The championships made life as a Sox fan a much better thing.
But the current team sure looks like a dysfunctional mess at the moment.

They're not scoring in the first because they're not scoring period. Averaging 2.3 runs in May.

I agree with max. Mookie's OBP is a problem, but it's far from the biggest problem. The offense is a top-to-bottom disaster. Betts and Bogaerts are the only two guys who show any promise at all.

The situation with the outfield is now officially ridiculous. Last night's game clinches it. Victorino pulls himself from the game with 'general soreness in calf area' or something absurd like that. more »

In response to maxbialystock's comment: Nonsense. The sox lost because their hitting stinks, and Betts made the best outfield play of the night when he dove and prevented a near catastrophic triple. more »

In response to harness' comment: RBI's are a function of opportunity. And Betts has driven in runs because: 1) He's had Holt/Bogart/Hannigan that constituted most of his rbi's. Compare those hitters more »

In response to sycophant123's comment: Personally I don't have a huge problem with Nava. My point is that Castillo is better. there really is no reason to have him at AAA. It isn;t like he needs at ba more »

I predict Nava gets on base by hit or walk at least twice tonight.

In response to slasher9's comment: what do you think of 1/2 point being awarded (instead of 1 whole point) to the player that is able to get on the field? i think there needs to be a penalty for not b more »

In response to harness' comment: Who starts depends on Farrell. The fact he chooses Betts over Holt leading off given a 70 - 80 point OBP negative differential says more about Farrell than anything el more »

I can certainly understand the idea of moving Betts down in the order. But sending him to Pawtucket is just wacky talk. Fortunately it's not armchair wizards like that actually running the team.
