    There's nothing wrong with looking at Quentin's AAA stats and wanting to see it get a CHANCE at the MLB level. While healthy.


    Thats the difference between him and BA. BA, while healthy, has gotten his chance, and then some.



    Somebody who knows more than the numbers can correct me, but is it really true that Quentin (395 ABs in 138 games) has had less of a MLB chance than Anderson (416 ABs in 160 games)? It seems they've had relatively equal amount of MLB time to date. For my money, I'll take the players (of Owens, BA, Quentin, etc) that are completely healthy and ready. Anderson has a couple more weeks to keep punching his ticket, but if he continues to perform you have to reward him with a spot on the team. If he really has improved his attitude and his swing, he'd be a major plus to the Sox.

  2. Winner of GA/KY will play two games today - the SEC Champ game will still be tomorrow but starting 2 hours later (3pm Eastern).


    All games have been moved to Ga Tech, and only family, friends, and school-related officials (plus media, etc) will be allowed into the games. Today's and tomorrow's games will be played in front of a nearly empty arena...

    I think SF will eventually cave and give up Sanchez or something else a little more worthwhile. They need bats worse than the Sox need to get rid of Crede. And its not like there are a ton of options out there. Inge is the only other one, and DET isn't going to give him up for nothing either.


    Does SF really need to make a deal? They are going to suck either way - why part with young talent (which I'd assume the Sox want) for a guy that probably won't make them better than a last place team. It seems SF only wants to trade their old talent, and there really isn't a fit for those guys on the Sox.

    Your link doesn't work. Dave roberts eh? Bleh.


    I couldn't get the link to work, so posted the full url. Either way, just a horrible offer from the Giants. At that price, I'm glad KW hasn't traded Crede yet.

    Just curious, say Anderson gets the CF job, who do people envision hitting leadoff? Cabrera-Swisher at 1-2 would be fine with me if BA turns the corner this year, which is really the best case scenario for this year.


    I'd go Swisher-Cabrera...which is my hoped for lineup regardless. If BA is in CF, then it'll be Swish-BA-Dye. If BA isn't, it should be Quentin-BA-Dye.

    Based on the way McGinley phrased that it sounds like they are going to film 18 new episodes that will air on ABC.


    That's the way I read it as well...and it would be AWESOME!

    None of those teams have really traded their highest value players while holding onto their lowest value players (unless you're talking about Miguel Tejada being traded when his value was probably the lowest possible, barring a suspension due to 'roids)


    I also don't disagree that the ownership in Baltimore is absolutely terrible, but Tampa Bay and KC are pretty well stocked for the upcoming years.


    I'm also not saying that Florida's plan is the best plan for everyone, but you can't deny their results. 2 World Series rings in 14 years of existence? Not going to get much better than that.


    Sure, the Marlins have done it twice very well and, true, Baltimore is a management problem. However, my main point is that the Marlins are more an anomoly than the norm. Rebuilding isn't as easy as some (not saying you, in particular) think that it is. KC has traded some very good players (David Cone, Dye, Damon, Beltran) at a point in which they had a ton of value and has had only one winning season since 1995 when the trading / dumping salaries began. Sure they have good, young talent, but that has been true for awhile now. Same with Tampa Bay - not a single winning season in their ten year existence - though they haven't done much in trading their top players, which was your original point (so TB proves my point but doesn't really disprove your point).

    Ventura ended up getting a contract with the Mets that was bigger than Thomas' was at the time. How would THAT have set with the reigning MVP if Reinsdorf had re-signed Ventura for the Mets' contract price? They had Olmedo Saenz, Joe Crede and Carlos Lee at 3B in AA and AAA at the time.


    Good point - I admit to know remember the numbers but remembering that it was well below what he was expected to get on the market. As for the then minor leaguers, even then we knew Lee wouldn't be a major league 3B, and Crede was still years away (meaning I don't think it is comparable to the current Fields-Crede situation). Resigning Ventura would have avoided the Norton - Snopek era yet we might not have had the Milkman mini-era.

  9. Ventura was better than Crede at every facet of the game. It's a no brainer. The irony is how diametrically different the situations are... most Sox fans (including me) believe the Sox screwed Ventura...first with the White Flag trade right after he came back from that terrible injury...then by offering him a token contract that was never legit (those teams were cheap). I'm not even going to rehash the whole Crede surgery / Sox are screwed with low trade value and can't resign him thing.

    I didn't realize the title said the internet created OPS and RISP stats. Really a misleading post.


    Well, 90% of the posts missed your original point about the internet and baseball, especially the great point about allowing us to make baseball a job. it somehow got sidetracked into the "stats" argument and the "internet + baseball = bad" argument, neither of which were inherent in the original post. The internet has improved some things, but it clearly has made other parts less enjoyable.

    The Vic Theater on Sheffield just south of Belmont. In the city.


    It was a double feature. Talladega Nights was the 2nd film.



    I heard they stopped selling pitchers at the Brew and View. I used to live on Barry and Sheffield, just down the street from the Vic...many stumbling nights home from there!
