Bump

Maybe Nava looks worse than he is out there? My eyes see a range of nil.

That homer was a breath of fresh air. Too bad they spent the entire Bogaerts at-bat replaying it.
   103. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: February 23, 2013 at 04:50 PM (#4374880)
He's definitely not rangy but he's sure handed and seems to have a decent arm. Not saying I want him as a defensive replacement but I'd be comfortable with him in either corner ( maybe not so much in right in Fenway).
   104. Matt Clement of Alexandria Posted: February 23, 2013 at 04:55 PM (#4374883)

I don't see Jeremy Giambi out there. He's not utterly awful. I'm expecting Mike Carp isn't meaningfully better.
   105. Dan Posted: February 23, 2013 at 04:56 PM (#4374884)
What the hell was that?
   106. Dan Posted: February 23, 2013 at 04:57 PM (#4374885)
Carp is probably a similar defender, but has a lot more upside as a power bat.
   107. Dan Posted: February 23, 2013 at 04:57 PM (#4374886)
Sure, just hand the runs right back.
   108. Matt Clement of Alexandria Posted: February 23, 2013 at 04:58 PM (#4374888)
Carp is probably a similar defender, but has a lot more upside as a power bat.
Yup. But he also might suck. And Nava has upside as an OBP bat.
   109. Matt Clement of Alexandria Posted: February 23, 2013 at 04:59 PM (#4374889)
What the hell was that?
Brock Holt, proving Pirates fans right.

JBJ :(
   112. Dan Posted: February 23, 2013 at 05:08 PM (#4374896)
That seemed like a tiny lead to try and be stealing.
   113. Matt Clement of Alexandria Posted: February 23, 2013 at 05:14 PM (#4374900)
So I want to clarify a baseball rule. When a player runs between bases on a pitched ball, the catcher can throw the ball to the next base, and it's possible for the runner to be out if he's tagged before he reaches the base?

I had forgotten that rule recently, for some reason.
   114. Matt Clement of Alexandria Posted: February 23, 2013 at 05:15 PM (#4374901)
That seemed like a tiny lead to try and be stealing.
It was a 3-2 count, wasn't it? I don't think it was exactly a steal.
   115. Dan Posted: February 23, 2013 at 05:19 PM (#4374903)
Including the Strike out- Caught Stealing DP, the Sox have hit into 5 DP in 8 innings today.
   116. Matt Clement of Alexandria Posted: February 23, 2013 at 05:22 PM (#4374904)
Remy's right - really nice swing by Hazelbaker, good mechanics, excellent balance.

A reminder that the truly galling thing about Remy is that he could be a very good announcer.
   117. Matt Clement of Alexandria Posted: February 23, 2013 at 05:24 PM (#4374907)
Professional at-bat by Bogaerts. Admittedly against random NRI fodder.

But I love the look of his swing. He's almost, dare I say it, reminiscent of Manny. It's the really calm hands and lower body, the easy power and weight shift.
   118. Dan Posted: February 23, 2013 at 05:27 PM (#4374908)

He was a good announcer back when he cared about and was still interested in baseball.

Oh, Nava.
   119. Darren Posted: February 23, 2013 at 07:09 PM (#4374953)
I'm torn on Nava. I really want him to do well, but he can be stashed at AAA and Carp has to make the team to stay....
   120. Dan Posted: February 24, 2013 at 04:11 PM (#4375261)
Looks like the Yankees might be the ones bit by the injury bug this year: Granderson hit by a pitch in his first ST PA, and will miss 10 weeks with a fractured forearm.
   121. Darren Posted: February 25, 2013 at 08:00 PM (#4375969)
WEEI says Webster was impressive:

After allowing an RBI double to Melky Cabrera, Webster went on to strike out four Blue Jays batters in a row. Make the feat more impressive was that those hitters – Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion, J.P. Arencibia and Brett Lawrie – are considered to be the meat of the Jays’ batting order once the regular season rolls around.
   122. Darren Posted: February 25, 2013 at 08:07 PM (#4375977)
Should have added that he was hitting 98 and 99.

   123. Dan Posted: February 25, 2013 at 08:32 PM (#4375989)
Should have posted that in the minor help thread where we were already discussing it!
   124. philly Posted: February 27, 2013 at 02:29 PM (#4377084)
Tonight's game is on MLB Network at 7 pm. Anybody have a list of pitchers slated to throw?
   125. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: February 27, 2013 at 03:46 PM (#4377158)
In my experience boston.com is the best source for this stuff. Here's what they got for tonight's game;

Ellsbury CF
Pedroia 2B
Victorino RF
Saltalamacchia C
Middlebrooks 3B
Drew SS
Nava 1B
Hamilton DH
Pitching: LHP Franklin Morales followed by LHP Drake Britton, RHP Junichi Tazawa, RHP Joel Hanrahan, RHP Koji Uehara, RHP Andrew Bailey and LHP Andrew Miller.
   126. philly Posted: February 27, 2013 at 04:29 PM (#4377218)
Thanks. Bullpen day means seeing lots of guys who will be on the team on the plus side, but well you know it's also just the releivers. Oh well.
   127. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: February 27, 2013 at 08:23 PM (#4377334)
Middlebrooks checked his swing on the first pitch he saw and injured his wrist and left the game.

NESNs sideline reporter did inform us that she talked to Middlebrooks prior to the game and that he had worked with Mike Lowell on his footing. That was useful.
   128. Dan Posted: February 27, 2013 at 08:32 PM (#4377336)
Well, we're boned.
   129. Dan Posted: February 27, 2013 at 08:44 PM (#4377341)
Seriously though, third base is a terrible place to lose the starter for this team. There's practically no depth there right now. Pedro Ciriaco's bat at first for several weeks is a terrible, horrible option. I'd honestly rather toss Bogaerts into the deep end than watch Ciriaco get everyday PT at a corner position.
   130. Dan Posted: February 27, 2013 at 08:49 PM (#4377344)
And on cue, Ciriaco makes a throwing error from third base. Yeah, if I have to watch this guy play third base, I'm going to be incredibly sad.
   131. Dan Posted: February 27, 2013 at 08:58 PM (#4377347)
Speier already has a short piece up about the depth issues, etc.
   132. ellsbury my heart at wounded knee Posted: February 27, 2013 at 09:50 PM (#4377369)
I'd rather see Brock Holt(!) than Ciriaco, if it comes to that. If Middlebrooks' wrist is this weak, then I fear for what we might see of his power this year.
   133. ellsbury my heart at wounded knee Posted: February 27, 2013 at 09:53 PM (#4377370)
Doublepost.
   134. Petunia inquires about ponies Posted: February 27, 2013 at 10:12 PM (#4377377)
Andrew Miller is one good-looking man.
   135. Dan Posted: February 27, 2013 at 10:13 PM (#4377378)

I was pretty terrified about long term implications from the moment the pitch hit his wrist. Hopefully our concerns are overblown.
   136. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: February 27, 2013 at 10:43 PM (#4377395)
Via Jenny Dell Middlebrooks just spoke in the clubhouse and said nothing is broken, it was just a scare but not as bad as it appeared. Orsillo reporting no X-rays taken yet though.
   137. Dan Posted: February 27, 2013 at 10:51 PM (#4377396)
They reported that Granderson just had a bruise before the X-rayed him, FWIW. I'm not going to calm down about it just yet.
   138. villageidiom Posted: February 27, 2013 at 10:53 PM (#4377398)
We still don't know what the question is, but regardless I am pretty sure Ryan Dent is not the answer.
   139. Matt Clement of Alexandria Posted: February 27, 2013 at 11:10 PM (#4377405)
This isn't analysis:

Does anyone else feel like this Middlebrooks incident determines the season? If he's fine, we're going to have a mostly normal baseball season for a mediocre baseball team. If he's gone for five months, baseball still hates me.
   140. Dan Posted: February 27, 2013 at 11:14 PM (#4377408)
Britton: not quite as impressive tonight as he was in his first game.
   141. Dan Posted: February 27, 2013 at 11:16 PM (#4377409)

I think everyone feels that way on some level, whether they're willing to admit it or not. You'd have to be an emotionless robot to not have felt that way when you saw him grab at the wrist. So, maybe RDP would be unfazed, but everyone else was thinking "oh no, here we go again".
   142. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: February 28, 2013 at 09:22 AM (#4377509)

Sounds about right. It's not just an exciting young player it's the one guy on the team that really doesn't have a tolerable backup. If the Gods were out to get the Sox Middlebrooks would be the guy they would smite. Every other position has a replacement ready that would at least let us survive for awhile but if I have to watch Ciriaco play third base for two months I may kill myself.
   143. tfbg9 Posted: February 28, 2013 at 09:42 AM (#4377519)
Wrist said to be fine. Just a scare. "NO X-RAYS SCHEDULED".
They're kidding about the last part, no?

Edit: semi-coke to Jose.
   144. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: February 28, 2013 at 12:18 PM (#4377604)
Per Boston.com Middlebrooks to see a specialist today as a precaution. This seems like a good thing. I just think back to Pedroia the last couple of years seeing a specialist and getting a clean bill of health and going on a tear. Hopefully Middlebrooks will get the A-OK and use that as a boost to be comfortable doing things.
   145. tfbg9 Posted: February 28, 2013 at 12:24 PM (#4377610)
Well, lets get the thing x-rayed, MRI'd etc.? No repeats of the Ellsbury and Bucholz fiasco's? Please?
   146. Nasty Nate Posted: February 28, 2013 at 01:12 PM (#4377646)
I have a bad feeling about his wrist.

If he misses time, they have some internal options:

(1) Simply plug Ciriaco in as the starter.
(2) Drew Sutton
(3) Teach Drew to play third, and start Iglesias at SS. In games in which they are trailing, they can pinch hit for Iglesias, slide Drew back, and insert Ciriaco (or Sutton) at 3B.
(4) Teach Brock Holt to play third.
(5) some combination of the above

I assume that Gomez is not really an option besides emergency use at 3B?
   147. Drew (Primakov, Gungho Iguanas) Posted: February 28, 2013 at 01:26 PM (#4377652)
Due to Middlebrooks' injury, Bogaerts will be playing today in...CF.

Huh?
   148. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: February 28, 2013 at 01:42 PM (#4377675)

Where are you seeing that? I'm pretty sure Bogaerts has already left for Asia to join the Honkballers.

Extra Bases has Bradley listed in center. I wonder if whatever site you looked at put in the wrong "B" prospect.
   149. Dan Posted: February 28, 2013 at 01:47 PM (#4377679)
Apparently Middlebrooks took Bp today without incident.
   150. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: February 28, 2013 at 01:51 PM (#4377683)

I mention this with some regularity but it is still not clear to me why 3rd base is not an option for a converted catcher (e.g. Napoli or hell even Lavarnway). Fundamentally it's the same skills at first base; semi-competence on grounder, good feet, quick hands and then you add in a strong arm. That seems like a reasonable set of skills that would translate well from behind the plate.

I had thoughts last night that it would be awfully exciting to see Bogaerts jump in there. So many reasons that it's a lousy idea for a kid who just turned 20 and has a month at AA under his belt but the thought of an October article "when Will Middlebrooks broke his wrist checking his swing, little did we know that a door opened for the player who would generate an excitement not seen by a Boston rookie since Nomar burst onto the scene..."

Then I remember he's 20 and drew one walk in a month of AA ball and maybe I should settle down.

Do 3Bmen have more chances at batted balls than 1Bmen because of their positioning and that there are more RH hitters than lefties?
   152. Matt Clement of Alexandria Posted: February 28, 2013 at 01:57 PM (#4377689)
You can be a reasonably ok catcher without having any capacity to play infield. Think Mike Piazza. The reports on Lavarnway is that he makes Piazza look like a versatile athlete, and he's either a catcher or a DH.
   153. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: February 28, 2013 at 02:17 PM (#4377713)
I agree that it's not a guaranteed successful conversion. However, I think it should be considered more often than it is and it is not clear to me why 1st base is always the fallback position but 3rd base is not. If the player is capable of playing 1st, my belief is that it probably is worthwhile to see if he can play 3rd. This is especially true with the offensive bar being lower at 3rd than at 1st.

EDIT - BBRef now has Spring Training stats for this year including an estimated value of opposition quality? I really think I love Sean Forman.
   154. Drew (Primakov, Gungho Iguanas) Posted: February 28, 2013 at 03:08 PM (#4377766)

It was MLB.com. Not even they can get everything right, it seems. They've fixed it (to my extreme relief).

To me, it seems like 3B requires better natural instincts and incredibly quick reactions to batted balls that are pretty difficult if you've never played an infield position before. 3B usually play closer in on the grass and have to defend against bunts and whatnot, while 1B tend to play a little deeper and have a little more time to react, not to mention all the throws are different. Most C can barely play a passable 1B, let alone 3B.
   156. Dan Posted: March 01, 2013 at 08:25 PM (#4378684)
Anyone else watching tonight's game?

Ellsbury and Drew both look good, putting on good swings against LHP.
   157. villageidiom Posted: March 01, 2013 at 10:06 PM (#4378723)
I'm watching, now. I'm impressed with Wright. LOTS of movement with his knuckler.
   158. Dan Posted: March 03, 2013 at 02:49 PM (#4379775)
Anybody watching today's game against the Yankees? So far the biggest takeaway for me from today's broadcast has been that it's going to be terrible to see another season of Remy blatantly hitting on Jenny Dell.
   159. Dan Posted: March 03, 2013 at 02:52 PM (#4379777)
Drew's range on defense looks pretty solid. He seems like he's finally over the ankle injury.
   160. Dan Posted: March 03, 2013 at 02:58 PM (#4379781)
Napoli just demolished a HR to dead center at fake Fenway. I think he'll hit well enough to be an asset at first base.
   161. Darren Posted: March 03, 2013 at 03:27 PM (#4379792)
nice AB for Drew there too.
   162. Darren Posted: March 03, 2013 at 03:28 PM (#4379793)
Napoli looks like he's in better shape than I remember. He tends to wear a pretty baggy shirt, so maybe I was deceived in the past.
   163. Darren Posted: March 03, 2013 at 03:36 PM (#4379797)
I don't care what anyone else says, I'm glad we've got Ken Stabler in our bullpen.
   164. Dan Posted: March 03, 2013 at 03:39 PM (#4379800)
Andrew Miller has grown quite the beard and long hair combo. I don't think he's shaved or gotten a haircut since last ST, and he was already looking ragged then.
   165. Darren Posted: March 03, 2013 at 03:40 PM (#4379801)
Keep pitching like that and he can look however he wants. Sox pitchers have thrown 4 balls through 5 IP--never thought I'd hear that after last year.
   166. Darren Posted: March 03, 2013 at 03:44 PM (#4379803)
Salty hustle!
   167. Darren Posted: March 03, 2013 at 03:44 PM (#4379804)
Okay, late, partial hustle.
   168. tfbg9 Posted: March 03, 2013 at 03:49 PM (#4379810)
Dempster looked good?
   169. Dan Posted: March 03, 2013 at 03:54 PM (#4379813)
Hanrahan's command doesn't look especially sharp.
   170. Dan Posted: March 03, 2013 at 03:58 PM (#4379814)
Hanrahan looks like ####.
   171. Darren Posted: March 03, 2013 at 04:01 PM (#4379815)
When a Minor Leaguer can get on top of your high heat like that, not good.
   172. Dan Posted: March 03, 2013 at 04:03 PM (#4379816)
Granted, a lot of this isn't his fault, but he doesn't look sharp either.

Sutton with 2 errors at third base in one ####### inning. Amazing.
   173. Darren Posted: March 03, 2013 at 04:06 PM (#4379820)
Yeah, he looks a little too much like another bearded, heavyset closer for my taste.
   174. Dan Posted: March 03, 2013 at 04:06 PM (#4379821)
Closer out. Best RP in.
   175. Darren Posted: March 03, 2013 at 04:10 PM (#4379824)
How soon will Tazawa be closing?
   176. Dan Posted: March 03, 2013 at 04:11 PM (#4379826)
Beautiful slow curve by Tazawa. Followed up with a nice slider or hard curve or whatever. Retires Yankees scrub in 3 pitches, after watching Hanrahan futz around with 6 pitches per hitter.
   177. Dan Posted: March 03, 2013 at 04:15 PM (#4379827)
Another good AB from Drew, even if the result wasn't there.
   178. Dan Posted: March 03, 2013 at 04:22 PM (#4379830)
Lavarnway did a good job framing strike 3 there. That fastball was a good bit off the black,but he held the glove nice and steady and got the call. I actually thought it was still Ross back there at first.
   179. Dan Posted: March 03, 2013 at 04:26 PM (#4379834)
How many more shitty performances by Hanrahan until Nick Cafardo and the like start talking about a "closer controversy"?
   180. Dan Posted: March 03, 2013 at 04:39 PM (#4379844)
Bailey also looked far better than Hanrahan. He did give up some hard contact to minor leaguers though.
   181. Dan Posted: March 03, 2013 at 05:01 PM (#4379855)
This pitcher looks terrible, whoever he is. But Lavarnway has done a good job catching him.
   182. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: March 04, 2013 at 08:09 AM (#4380021)
How soon will Tazawa be closing?


Trade deadline at the latest.

Going to five games the next two weeks, let me know whose career you'd like me to ruin.

"Wow, that Cafardo guy is writing really well this spring!"

EDIT: Oops, I misspelled "Shaughnessy".
   184. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: March 04, 2013 at 02:08 PM (#4380248)
Actually walked by Cafardo this morning, he looks slimmer. Best shape of his life!

There is some nitwit on the field pregame with a Red Sox Longoria jersey on. Yes that is correct, joins the guy I saw with the Michael Jordan Celtic jersey at the parade in 2004.
   185. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: March 04, 2013 at 03:37 PM (#4380340)
Scary moment - Iglesias just smoked a double down the third base line but pulled up as he went into second base . He's staying in the game for now though.
   186. Dan Posted: March 06, 2013 at 03:38 AM (#4381724)
120. Dan Posted: February 24, 2013 at 04:11 PM (#4375261)
Looks like the Yankees might be the ones bit by the injury bug this year: Granderson hit by a pitch in his first ST PA, and will miss 10 weeks with a fractured forearm.


This appears to be a trend now...Teixeira out of the WBC and out for at least 2 weeks with a wrist injury. Heard a "pop". That's a big concern for a guy whose only tool on offense is power. The amusing part will be when Dan Johnson fills in and hits .250/.350/.500 for 6 weeks with half his games in NYS, with 6-10 homers in that span as he takes advantage of the short porch.
   187. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: March 06, 2013 at 03:55 PM (#4382153)
Anyone wondering what happened to Kalish I think Linares ate him. Linares looks like George Scott circa 1978.
   188. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: March 06, 2013 at 04:20 PM (#4382178)
Lyle Overbay...not an outfielder. Misread a fly ball that hit the base of the wall and overran a grounder to allow a run to score.
   189. Sonic Youk Posted: March 07, 2013 at 06:54 PM (#4383285)
Webster today: 3 IP, 1 R 0 BB 5K, touching high 90s again. wheeeeeeeeeee.
   190. Matt Clement of Alexandria Posted: March 07, 2013 at 06:59 PM (#4383295)
So, Bard struck out the side in his one inning of work today? Any reports?

Over on SoSH, they're saying he sat mid-90s (somewhere 93-97, depending on reports) and looked great. Bard recently told the press that he's finally started feeling like his old self in side sessions, and he apparently showed it today. This is really great news.
   191. tfbg9 Posted: March 07, 2013 at 07:26 PM (#4383319)
This is really great news


Let him have a good month and deal him away. I won't ever trust him again. Sorry...

That's silly. IF he's back to the pitcher he was in 2010 and 2011, then he's a better pitcher than the nominal closer. Why would you want to get rid of him?

Speaking of said closer, Hanrahan had another miserable outing today. He only managed to get 1 out before they had to lift him due to pitch count. That's freaking pathetic, and comes after a few other bad outings.

Which would put him, what, fourth in line for the job?

I don't want to make too much of spring training numbers, and I haven't gotten to sit down and watch Hanrahan pitch yet. But in the situation the Sox have, with Bailey, Tazawa, and Uehara all looking like excellent high-lev options, it seems to me that Hanrahan should have to win the job rather than be given time to settle into it.

Hating on one of the best possible feel-good stories of the spring is no fun, teddy.

Hey I hope Bard does well. I just don't trust him. He seems like a guy who can just "lose it" without warning. He did it in the minors. He did in late 2011. And he did it last year.

I never really got the impression he was ever all that good at hitting the glove, he often got outs on raw stuff. Not my cup of tea.

I hope he has himself a good rest of his career.

Night baseball at the Fort. Dylan Bundy and Felix Doubront.

Really impressed by Christian Vazquez behind the plate.

Bard has some good breaking stuff today, but his fastball is all over the place a bit.

Tazawa's slow curve is beautiful. He looks like he has the stuff to be a starter.

Ortiz has said "He'll let Farrell announce the results of the MRI tomorrow"

Sounds ominous.

Thome?
Bradley?
Damon?

Johnny Platoonbody?

If they're to have any chance this season, my preference would be to use Bradley (also time in the field of course) and hope for upside. Platooning people like GOmes and Nava just seems to me to be creating holes elsewhere.

Why didn't they MRI both his freakin' heels in January? Ugh.

This has a Schilling circa 2008 feel to it doesn't it?

And I'm on board with Dales Jackie Bradley plan.
