Not bad a deal for Renteria, I think. Managining the Cubs cannot have been fun. Now he gets paid while looking for another position. And we of course benefit from having Maddon go to the NL Central more »

Thanks, Kimmi. Entirely credible even though I have long believed that the batting order was a big deal.

In response to dannycater's comment: 1. You can't play Mookie Betts at 2b because it's Dustin Pedroia's spot and it's wrong to take a young stud and put him at his natural position. 2. Jon Lester is more »

In response to S5's comment: I'm trying to not read too much into the house thing. In reality, the decision to sell was made before the sign went up. Lester was on the West Coast preparing for a bas more »

Ain't buying the slider theory because other pitches can have the same effect. So let's try a little math. Assume 300 pitches per game, multiply times 25 seconds for each pitch, and divide by 60 to more »

J-Bay, good catch on Vazquez. Thanks.

Thanks for the OP, Jete. I will be watching because it's a habit and of course I am always interested in the Sox players and somewhat less so the Yankees. Both teams have their work cut out for them more »

First and foremost, my congratulations to moonslav for a truly great thread. In the past I have thought these realistic threads tended to get a little too far down in the weeds, but this one in parti more »

I gotta agree with those who say Bill-806 doesn't actually watch the games. No way, no how does Buchholz not come out for the 8th inning. He wasn't tired and had shut out the Rays for 7 innings and more »

A nice thought by the OP, but blog sites are rarely known for their class. I think Jeter deserves to be in the HOF. I read somewhere he was the crucial player for the latest version of the Yankee dy more »

In response to Kingface12's comment: He did take his lead in foul territory. The problem was his dive back in.....he went into fair territory after the ball was hit. The replay I saw shows him right more »

I agree with those who defend Bogaerts at SS. Lately he has looked pretty darn good to me. Not gold glove, of course, but much improved, and he is still young. Plus it's clear he is happy there. W more »

Not a great article, not by a long shot. Silly, in fact. I think Bradley is a terrific centerfielder, but have seen better. He might have an attitude problem, but it is irrelevant. If he can't h more »

Tabuk. About a 4 hour drive from Amman.
Posted 09/09/2014 03:20:44 EDT
Honestly? No big deal. Rooting for the Sox right now is mostly habit, not expectation.
Posted 09/08/2014 01:10:27 EDT
Interesting. Since I have been a Bradley booster and concomitantly an Ellsbury naysayer, I have to agree with your points. I do think Bradley is a much better fielder overall, but have to admit his more »

I like the headline and the OP. Boston writers can be nasty, but in their defense they are simply looking for something, anything, to write about. I myself think he is a goner simply because Boston more »

I frankly don't mind anyone attacking the OP. It was, as I said, an honest question. I thought Farrell was wrong not to make a different move, but would love to hear from anyone who thinks he handle more »
Posted 09/05/2014 01:27:36 EDT
It's an honest question. It's September and we know for a fact the Sox will finish out of the playoffs and are a good bet for last in the AL East. So now is the time to try out different players wit more »
Posted 09/03/2014 05:29:01 EDT
Great stats, thanks, bosoxmal. Given the big age difference, I have to go with Betts. I give Cespedes the edge on power, but Betts has as good a Slugging percentage. Clearly Cespedes has the better more »

Funny the different tacks on being vengeful. I like beating the Yankees, but even more I like holding Ellsbury hitless. And, to be even more honest, I want to beat the Rays a whole lot more than the more »

Bill 806, strangely enough, speaks the truth. Of course he is always in favor of playing rookies, but the point remains. This season is over, but not really. Still lots of baseball to watch. And I more »

Thanks for the thread, Jete. So speak the truth--strange times, more so for us than you.
Posted 09/01/2014 01:02:07 EDT
Nothing is more obvious than that Betts must switch to the OF if for no other than reason--besides the fact the Pedroia owns 2B--than that he has probably the best wheels on the team. About two weeks more »
