So This Is How The 2011 Red Sox Should Line-Up


Recommended Posts

I don't see it as fruitless, but ok. It's hard to argue that having an inferior player at a position on a good team, can't be upgraded by a better player, who plays the same position, on a bad team.

Baseball for the most part is an individual sport. I'd have to lean toward winning improves team chemistry over the opposite.

Don't you know that every player on a bad team is worse than every player on a good team? DUH! If the Giants had Halney Ramirez at SS instead of Juan Uribe they would't have won the series.

The only good thing about football ending is the increased focus on baseball. You guys are great.

I was just thinking about how awful it is for baseball when a huge market team sends one of their GM's underlings to a small market team to be a GM and he promptly trades the 28 year old best player o

That is a whole other argument-chicken vs egg type of thing-but that is not what is being done here.

Who is better Gonzalez or Teixiera?

Is that what is going to be the deciding factor this year?

Let's see what Yankee's 3-4-5 does. That would seem to be where the curiosity lies.

I'm not a huge Teixeira guy...but I haven't seen a lot of Gonzalez either.

As usual, the deciding factor will most likely be starting pitching. I think we all know the Sox and Yankees will both hit.

I fully admit the Red Sox are the better team though.

That's the fun of a season.

Rather than a player who was injured practically all of last year vs a platoon player,

That's true. I think the Sox win the division, but anything can happen. No stats can tell you who's going to be the best team.

Nobody knows-It is all hypothetical.

We DO know that the Giants won WITH Uribe. impossible to say what would have happened if they had Ramirez.

Even the stat geeks do not know.

I would say the AL East crown lies with the team that answers that question the best.

Both teams will hit, but how the lower portion of the rotation performs will decide the division crown and maybe the big trophy at the end.

Have at it, but teams win, players don't

Nah you just are a terrible poster who makes horrible arguments and he pointed it out pretty effectively.

Yet you are the one that continually gets banned here, and comes crawling back to where he obviously isn't wanted.

Uh oh, are you you going to go running to the Mods crying, which is your typical MO?

Loser.

Good point. IMO the Red Sox starting rotation is far superior to the Yanks and that will be the difference. It should be a great season.

Awww did I hurt someone's feelings? Poor baby. He pretty much said the same thing that I've been saying about your lack of any coherent argument on any topic. You just waste everyone's time on here.

We didn't realize that you were the coherency police.

Maybe someone should be self policing themselves.

If you don't like what I write PUT ME ON IGNORE. It is pretty easy. It appears that you are the one upset.

I never claimed to be the coherency police. Everyone just agrees with me about how awful you are though. I'm not upset at all. I'm loving the fact that you're being called out of for the waste of time you are. This is too good to put u on ignore.

Look at Red Sox Nation already making excuses for their team crashing and burning before one game is played!! HAHAHAHA

And we should be surprised how? The Sox are on a 10 game losing streak.

Like 2004, I expect the Sox to be better in the second half then the first.

Go look at Granderson's stats.

He can't hit. A career .268 hitter is not a good hitter by any standard. A hitter that averages a 136Ks since he became an everyday player is not a good hitter.

Granderson's .822 OPs is an anomaly. He had two monster, relatively speaking, OPS years. Every other year he is a .250ish hitter with a sub 800 OPS.

When he retires, he will have a sub-800 career OPS.

No one is dumb enough to read into anything that happens in spring training (except maybe you...) but this post by the leader of RSN is clearly the beginning of the excuse making campaign when the team isn't as good as all their fans think they will be. Gammons is the mouthpiece of the team and they clearly are trying to lower expectations.

What the hell is that supposed to mean? You think the Red Sox are going to say-"But look, the experts said we would not be good at the end of Spring Training"? Really?

Delusion is one thing. But being such a hater to actually sound stupid is monumental.

Trolling 101 kids

Ignore the factual discussion regarding the Gammons Tweet and attack me for some nonsense to try to get a reaction. Good troll.

It is funny. You infer I am putting too much into a spring training losing streak.

Yet, you use an anonymous scouting report that Gammons provides based off os seeing the Sox and Yankees in Spring Training. :huh:

Once you get Curtis' nuts out of your mouth, please argue any point I made.

He has two monster years and every other season he has been a K machine with JAG avaerage.

The fact that you are using K's and AVG to judge players shows how dumb you are.
