Just a thought on Middy. I agree that he's got no future with the Sox, and he may or may not do better if -- when -- he's traded to another team. But I wouldn't be so quick to blame him for not taking more »

The problem I have with Cespedes is that he may be afraid of "running into walls," which is something big league outfielders have to be OK with. I can't site specifics, but I recall at least one other more »

Pardon me, but I just woke up from my summer nap.
Where's the game being played?
Posted 09/21/2014 01:23:41 EDT
...just for a change. Is it me, or do the umps seem to be getting worse at calling balls and strikes, at least according to the Amica strike zone? Perfect example: last night the O's third run was a g more »

It's true we won't know for a while whether Vasquez can keep up with major league pitching. But what I like about his hitting is that he uses the whole field, going up the middle frequently. If he ca more »

I never realized how much I could enjoy watching a catcher play "offensive" defense. Talk about all the tools -- savvy, toughness, confidence, aggressiveness -- and good hitting. The Herald notes that more »

So we're now picking apart the OP's validity? I agree with the OP. It seems like putting Koji in at this point in the season can only do damage to whatever confidence he has left. Mujica's been mentio more »

No offense taken. I did read it. But what I'm saying, after seeing three stories in about five days, is that the real problem for JBJ might become the pressure via Boston media, not the swing.

WHY ISN'T HE HITTING HOME RUNS YET??

It seems that Jackie B now has an attitude problem, at least according to someone named Joon Lee at SB Nation, yesterday's Herald, and today's Globe -- http://www.boston.com/sports/baseball/redsox/e more »

I keep trying to get my question posted, so I'll try again: What is SB Nation?
Posted 08/27/2014 11:10:20 EDT
I don't want to see Vasquez go.
True what you say about prospects, but consider that Vasquez is proving himself big time at the major league level and Swihart is still a prospect.

Nice manner, excellent insight -- definitely a notch above Remy. Plus, Orsillo doesn't get all giggly like he does with Remy.

A good starting pitcher making $20 million/year gets about $200,000 per inning if he goes 200 innings over a season. And he's less likely to get a broken nose, separated shoulder or multiple concussio more »

I don't blame Crawford at all, regardless of what he says. He didn't belong here, and he wasn't treated well here. He didn't belong here and everyone, including him, knew it. He was brought in as a bi more »

Good story, Tony. Rarely is the front office held accountable for this stuff. Like when John Henry bumped his head on the yacht's stairway... I think what they did with Bogaerts was close to criminal. more »

Even Jerry Remy made the point last night that Middy was the last guy you should have up there bunting. He saids the pitcher probably would have done a better job, since he's got the experience in the more »

Thanks for the non-story.What's the background here? Who's the guy? Why was he kidnapped? Come on, editors. more »

Can we get Anthony Rizzo back?

Nice story, Eric. Thanks.Note to NESN: I wouldn't watch CMoore if you paid me. more »

I agree with the OP. Pedey has been great for this team, but no way would he have ever hit third in a good lineup. And if Betts is that good -- he seems to have no problem hitting, plus it seems he'd more »
