Ortiz coming back to bat .313 and lead the team in home runs (17) and RBIs (61).
The only difference between Shane Victorino and 2007 JD Drew is public perception and that JD was better at the plate.
By the way, this is going to be the first Red Sox team not to feature two 20 HR hitters in forever.
The difference? Shane smiles a lot.....oh, and JD is a better hitter.
Even with a regression, they should walk into the playoffs given the lead they have in the division.
I like this universe where Sept, 2011 never happened. Stewie, smash the remote.
but pretty much everyone in their lineup is performing above career norms.
Shane Victorino has been worth 2.2 fWAR/2.7 bWAR so far this season. 2007 JD Drew was worth 1.8 fWAR/2.1 bWAR. And Drew was signed to be a major offensive piece, whereas Victorino was signed to be a complementary piece
Couple of notes on #18, Dempster is a two-year deal, and Ellsbury has been playing great defense (except for his arm of course).
Agree with #21.
Hard to see this as a dominant AL East team. Can't imagine anyone on the RedSox starting for the Orioles except Pedroia and Ortiz.
Agree with #21.
It passed the Turing Test!
Why do people think Ells isn't durable?
Can't imagine anyone on the RedSox starting for the Orioles except Pedroia and Ortiz.
It's not a mystery. He played 18 games when he was 26 and 74 games when he was 28 - and not because he was benched or platooned.
