    Jed Lowrie - who knew?

    3 HR's, 4 doubles, BA of .500 and playing good D at SS for Oakland through seven games.  I'm glad to see him doing well.  I thought he got ripped way too much by some posters here during his time with the Sox.

    Agreed Joel.  Jed is a good player, just can't stay healthy.  To some this is akin to failure.

    It's not like Oakland has a rep for finding value.

    Re: Jed Lowrie - who knew?

    "No Pop" Jed was what softy called him.

    He may have one of the highest HR% of any SS over the past 2-3 years. Of course softy doesn't count doubles and triples as "pop", but either way, softy was wrong again.

     

    SS SLG% since 2010 (35 SSs with 950+ PAs)

    1) Tulo   .547

    2) Lowrie .453

    3) Reyes  .453

    4) HanRam .438

    5) Hardy    .427

    10) Drew   .414

    13) Aviles .400

    15) Scoot  .398

    16) Jeter  .396

    I am happy to see Crisp, Reddick, and Lowrie do well for the A's.  I always thank Lowrie for hitting the game winning RBI vs. the Angels in game 4 of the 2008 ALDS.  The Red Sox eliminated a very good and talented Angels team that year.

    Jed has always been a good player. When he can stay healthy, which hasnt been often.

    I know...Iggy is only 2nd or 3rd in every hitting category - so lets bench him!

    if anyone else on the team had a BABIP of over .600 then they would lead the team in every hitting category too......

    If his .600 BAbip was basxed on line drives falling in, it would be one thing, but Iggy has only one line drive hit, 3 GB hits, and 5 weak IF grounder hits or bunts to give him 9 hits overall.

    That is totally unsustainable. Sure, he might start lining more balls like he was in ST, but he's at best a .260-.275 hitter this year, and more likely a .235-.245 hitter with such great range and defensive instincts that his offense shouldn't even be an issue in need of discussion.

    Always thought he was a good player, had a great swing. Too good a swing to not hit, in fact. Injuries were his big trouble here, but I always thought he could reach greater heights.

    Re: Jed Lowrie - who knew?

    I was fine with Lowrie, playing third base. That would have left Youkilis at first, until Rizzo was ready.

    Someone in the FO had designs on A-Gon. Funny how Theo went out and got Rizzo right back from the Padres. Also wanted Werth over Crawford.  Once Rizzo and Middy developed, Sox had Youk and Lowrie to trade, which they eventually did, and got mostly nothing in return.

    2013 Line-up

    Ells CF

    Pedroia 2b

    Werth LF

    Papi DH

    Rizzo 1b

    Middy 3b

    Salty C

    JBJ RF

    IGGY/Drew SS

    [QUOTE]

    softy was wrong again.

    I was right about the pretzel, you were wrong. And your low self esteem is causing you to work to hard at trying to assert yourself with phony stats.

    Jed Lowrie's career SLG is .430.

    That is still very high for a SS, but it's interesting how you bounce from 1 to 7 game sample sizes to career numbers whener it suits your fancy.

    He's a butcher at SS.

    Yes, obviously, but that does not affect his "pop". Please, try to stay on topic.

     

    Lowrie's a big reject because he's never played more than 97 games in his career! He's closing in on the 30 years old.

    While this nonsense is going on, Crisp has 4 homers in 8 games, which is better than fan favorite Jed slugging SS Lowrie.

    Why not look at Crisp's career HR % like you did for Jed's SLG%? Your constant moving of the goalposts must be tiring for you.

    Career HR%:

    Per PA:

    Lowrie  .0283

    Crisp    .0183

    Per AB:

    Lowrie  .0323

    Crisp    .0204

    Huge disparities here, clown. It's wood shed time again.

     

    By year end, Lowrie will be what Lowrie always is, a butcher SS who has the constitution of Ellsbury. These two guys are two of the most overrated fan fravorites in Red Sox history. Both are career losers from college days forward.

    Yes, I see Jed Lowrie T-shirts everywhere.

    In response to softlaw2's comment:

    Woodshed time is illegal, stooge. I'm going to simply plug some metal in you, time. Lowrie hasn't played more than 97 games in a season! Who cares what rainman "per plate A" stat splits you choose to use to try and make a case that Lowrie is a HR profile. Lowrie's a pretzel who ends up in the dumpster, which is where it's time to put you.



    Of course you "don't care" when you are wrong.

    Your position was Jed had "no pop". You then compared his "pop" to Coco's. You got taken to the wood shed, and now you want to change the discussion to playing time. Nobody disagrees that Jed can't stay on the field. 

    Stick to the conversation: "No Pop Jed".

    Re: Jed Lowrie - who knew?

    OPS+ adjusts and measures Jed's OPS.  His OPS+ is 101.  That is about as average as average gets.

    So we have an average hitting SS who cant play the position or stay healthy.

    He was traded for Melancon , who was in turn traded for Hanrahan (the included prospects were throw ins).

    Sox (indirectly) got Hanrahan for Lowrie.   Lowrie (a utility IF really) for a proven closer who is pitching well?  We actually made out pretty well.

    What's the average OPS+ for a MLB SS, drew?

    Made out like a bandit, getting rid of Lowrie the pretzel loser. I like how he was on the DL and working on his "feces" at Stanford on labor law.



    You criticized the Jed & Weiland for Melancon trade at the time!

    Your lies never end.
