    My standing opinion is not to let guys that have shown they can play here go.  If a guy can play in Boston, he can play in the World Series. Boston is not an easy place to play. Despite three rings in more »

    Yankees at -31 in run differential. Yankees, Toronto and Baltimore have shaky pitching.  Looks like it's going to come down to the Rays and the Sox.   Okay, I'm half kidding, but I don't think it's cr more »

    You would think the team would have the decency to stay dead. There must have been five times this season where I felt they were going to turn things around, and in every case I ended up thinking they more »

    The Dodgers could offer to give Kemp to the Sox and pay his salary and I wouldn't want him.

    The Yankees have to be the most pathetic spectacle in all of sports. They spent all that money and will end up behind the Red Sox this year. And I'm not even predicting the Sox will have a .500 record more »

    I've always felt Bradley will hit over .300 for the prime years of his career. In fact he's such a hard working and intelligent player that it would not surprise me if he was hitting around .300 in hi more »

    In my view (assuming they are both healthy) it's a big mistake if the Sox don't stick the rest of the year with Bogaerts at SS, Middlebrooks at 3B, Bradley in CF, and Vasquez behind the plate.  They c more »

    I'd say this is also the year to find out about Middlebrooks.  It is not the year to move guys who have not been written-off, but who are under-performing. Their trade value is so depressed it's not w more »

  • Posted 07/11/2014 02:38:34 EDT

    Unless the Sox have decided that Bogaerts is not the future SS they need to move Drew and begin playing Bogaerts at short every day as soon as possible.  This more or less "lost season" presents the p more »

    Even considering not resigning him is idiotic. I guess they could let Lester go, or trade him now and then throw the bank at Max Scherzer, but that would probably cost them more money and they would l more »

    I'm saying shut him down if he's got a partially torn ligament in his wrist and is trying to play through it. 
    I don't want to see the guy shorten his career.

    The quote below needs to be repeated over, and over, and over again, until it sinks in, and the nonsense about being converted to a starter stops.  "September 2011 when he was still the set-up guy. He more »

    I've seen people post about what is the most disappointing thing this year.  To me it's the fact the team seems to have wasted a year during which Uehara continues to be absolutely brilliant.  In fact more »

    Posted 06/13/2014 05:00:19 EDT

    I still believe Bradley will hit around .300 most seasons. That's what he's always done.  There are a lot of hard throwers in college and the minors and he hit them.  I think he's still pressing and w more »

    It's hard to say the Sox are completely out of it. I can't see them catching the Jays, but they are not very far out of a wildcard slot.  You never know, but that if they got in,  Lester and Lackey mi more »

    It's not my money and it's only for the rest of this season. The reason I hate the deal is it stunts Bogaerts' development at SS. That is assuming the Sox have not given up on the idea of Bogaerts at more »

    Wouldn't "Pretentious Buffoon" be a better nickname than "Goofy Genius"?

    I agree with pretty much all of this column. Look at the bright side. The Yankees spent a ton of money and while I do not think the Sox can make they playoffs I do think they will end up ahead of the more »

    Is this a serious proposal? I can't think of anything more ridiculous than the Red Sox getting rid of their front-line pitching. They would immediately be put in the position of having to go out and f more »
