About Me: Became a huge Sox fan after moving to Portland, Maine in 1970 and following the trade of my boyhood idol, Tommy Harper to the Red Sox. Tears of heartbreak turned to tears of joy. Go Sox!

    The only thing keeping Chavis in the top 20 is his draft placement. The kid is just 19. Man O man some of you guys are ruff. Sox4ever   [/QUOTE] Is he talented, clearly as he was drafted in the 1st ro more »

        Scouts love Rafael Devers, who has posted solid but unspectacular numbers this season in the Single A South Atlantic League. Compare these SAL numbers for two thirdbasemen this year: Player A 381 more »

    I've suggested looking to trade HanRam a couple of times in the past few weeks, but I don't feel it is a realistic idea.  I'd like to see him try to play 1B, but that may never happen either. I'd hate more »

      It is not a coincidence that the 3 rings we have were in years we had 3 plus defensive years at SS. 2004: OCab was way better than Nomar. 2007: Lugo was much better at defense than many gave him cre more »

    I'm not saying we never hoped to get a SS who can hit and field, but until any of them proved they could hit, nobody ever got or will get a legitimate chance at the ML level. [/QUOTE] Maybe the philos more »

    I actually stopped trying to explain this to the 'RS hate defensive SS' crew. Traded for the best defensive SS in BB in OCab Nomars demands forced the Sox hand. Besides, OCab was a decent offensive SS more »

    But on the other hand, is Iglesias as good defensively as we thought he'd be? Has he lost some range due to his knee issues? Right now the defensive metrics favor Bogaerts, and both are a far cry from more »

    In a Boston Herald article the author says John Henry has made it clear the Sox need to play young guys now to build for the future.  That said, when Betts comes back, I see him going to CF and Castil more »

    I just always get the idea the FO via the media SPIN the fans do not want some gold glove no bat  type to play full time........  but I never feel that way.... most fans I know don't think that way... more »

    Moonslav makes a great case for keeping Iglesias in 2013--something I was very much in favor of at the time--but I think we need to remember that Iggy didn't play much SS in 2013 before he was traded more »

    I loved how posters and media called every single Iggy hit a "soft" or "luck" hit .... drove me insane. But like any decent short-stop we have had since Nomar the managment really still expects some 2 more »

    We got one decent year out of Lugo both on offense and defense (and won a ring that year), but trying to find hitting SSs has been a failure, not just for the Sox, but for many MLB teams over the year more »

    ...if you are talking about 1b, if we have no plans for napoli next year then why not shaw? Because chances are what we are seeing is more "flash in the pan" than something to plan around next season. more »

      One player v. one WS title? I'll take the title.   That assumes we would not have won without Vic. It assumes we would not have won a ring with Bags at 1B. I always thought no one player wins a titl more »

    Remember how Lackey got totally roasted here on this site, only to find out he'd been pitching with a significant injury all year long? I'm not saying Porcello's woes this year have been injury relate more »

    I suspect the Sox will give him a decent amount of playing time in the next month and this argument wiil be settled. Hopefully he'll at least show some improvement because he's got the rope streatched more »
