I have no expectations from here on out...just going to enjoy watching the kids play, and any game they win the rest of the way will be like an unexpected gift. As much as I'd like to believe that so more »

I don't have high expectations for Shaw -- always figured he'd end up a AAAA guy or bench bat most likely -- but I'd love to be surprised. There are those guys who never got much attention as prospect more »

I think there's two ways to evaluate any transaction: -In hindsight, I think we got poor value by exchanging years of an improving young player (plus Montas, who has turned into a good prospect) for ~ more »

Looking at Iggy's whole body of work, including defense, in context for his position is not "cherry picking." Taking one number (even OPS+) in isolation, devoid of any context, and making it the fina more »

All the more reason to get Napoli out of the way sooner rather than later.

I agree with the notion that Cherington did not have a lot of great options in the 2013-14 offseason...however, I find the decisions since then far more alarming and the equivalent of throwing gasolin more »

In response to southpaw777's comment: I thought i read somewhere that if he remains off the 40 man the rest of the year he can forfeit his comtract and become a FA. I don't know why he'd want to do t more »

Is this the thread where we vote on the Top Postersâ¢?

By the way wont hold that against him not Power Pitcher. Many good Pitchers pitch to contact.

5.2 K/9 vs. 4.0 BB/9 does not impress me. He's still more suspect than prospect, IMO...granted, he may take a big step forward at some point, but he feels like kind of an afterthought in our system ri more »

In response to chickenandboose's comment: You guys are annoying lol you give a rookie a hard time but stay shut when napoli was striking out every at bat. At least be consistent with the bashing unles more »

don't forget he had that special clause where they couldn't offer him a qualifying offer if they wanted 2 Not only that, but they wouldn't have been able to re-sign him before May 15th either due to a more »

In response to -BurritoT's comment: If you had an offensive laden team then by all means I could care if JBJR batted .240 and won gold gloves ... the same reasoning I used for keeping Iggy. However we more »

In response to sycophant123's comment: I am using hyperbole to get people wound up. I didn't realize you guys were new to the forum. I also am saying he should play the rest of the year. It is just t more »

This thread is the perfect metaphor for the 2015 Red Sox: I expected so little, but the reality was even worse.
Posted 07/31/2015 10:54:42 EDT
Heck of a game thread here... I'd never have known that we won.
Posted 07/31/2015 02:54:14 EDT
Screw you and go away, Farrell. Let me keep my daydreams about blockbuster trades for a little while longer, at least.
Posted 07/31/2015 02:52:29 EDT
In response to slomag's comment: I don't think wanting somebody to play is hype. Most JBJ supporters have made the argument that he needs to be about a .250 / .700 OPS guy to be a solid every day sta more »

Eating into Sandoval's contract
This is weighing heavily upon my mind.

In response to notin's comment: He is considered a bust because two of the other 44 players to defect from Cuba were immediate superstars, and he hasn't been one. This, and probably a bit of the "bigg more »

In response to JoeBrady1's comment: I think he'll be a good player, But the issue is that we signed him for 7 years, and have almost nothing to show for it after two years. So instead of him being p more »

Yeah, I don't believe for a second that Lackey was traded because of his age. There's much more to that story yet to be told, IMO...
