    In response to maxbialystock's comment: The "madness" in the title appears to be the NL refusal to use the DH.   I thought the "madness" was going to be the incredible amounts of money paid to players more »

    Ehh, it's early. I'm certainly not going to make any kind of judgements after 14 games. Personally, I epected a slow start from Ortiz. I'm not expecting a 30-100 year from him either. He's getting old more »

    In response to Hfxsoxnut's comment: WMB's 3 HR and 11 RBI in 14 games look good. But his .268 OBP and his 16/2 K/BB are horrible and indicative of problems that will catch up to him.   I admit that I' more »

    One thing to keep in mind with the pitching is that early in the season, a couple of blowups can distort things. I think a reasonable expectation is for pitching to give up 4 runs or less to give your more »

    I wasn't a big fan of the Sandoval signing. I worried about his weight and his hitting against lefties. But we'll see what happens. My fear is that Will Middlebrooks outproduces him. I understand why more »

    In answer to the question on why people leave, sometimes it's as simple as life changes, work responsibilities or family responsibilties, etc. In my case, my duties at my job went back to what they we more »

    FWIW -- Betts is batting .375 when the count is 1-2. It's his most productive count. And he's batting .231 when the pitcher is ahead in the count and just .091 when he's ahead in the count. (.200 when more »

    I'm not part of the DUMP VICTORINO NOW crowd, although I do believe time is running short. And I wouldn't object to moving on from him either. Certainly, if he doesn't start hitting soon, something wi more »

    Good to see your back, harness. I haven't been very active the past six months because my work duties have changed and it makes it harder to sneak posts when I'm at work, plus I'm infinitely busier. I more »

    If we're going to use spring training stats, you could make a better case for starting JBJ -- .378 BA with 10 runs scored and three doubles along with having the best OF glove and arm on the team.  Th more »

    My confidence is about a shaky 6. It would be a solid 7 if Kelly wasn't hurt to start the year and Vasquez wasn't hurt. Maybe it's wishful thinking, but I think Buchholz will have a solid year. It wou more »

    Good column. I like Ortiz and am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. It really is possible he could have taken an over-the-counter supplement that caused the positive test and has been clean more »

    Pedey's healthy -- until he dives into first base in his first at-bat of the first game of the season and jams his wrist.
