    Because every player at some point gets an off day. Its how most players stay fresh in a 162 game season. Besides being 37yo and running a lot these past 3 days in Houston its a smart move to gibve him a blow.

    We want him fresh in sept/oct.

    He's been running a lot because he's hot as a pistol. Not a smart move at all. Pure overmanaging.

    From what I understand, Farrell usually consults with papi about how he feels. Im not positive, obviously, but papi may have been a little gassed after the last 3 games. they were all singles, so although hes hitting, the lack of some power might be a sign of him being a little tired and needing a rest. Just a possibility.

    That, and Farrell explained how today was a good day with Chen on the mound to sit him. Hes available off the bench.

    I noticed last night he was rolling over on his swing too. Thats also a sign of being tired.

    Even DHs need some time off.

    Yeah he's 9 for his last 10 but 3 of those hits last night were of the seeing-eye variety.  I hate to see him out of the lineup, too, but at least Farrell shook it up, moved the even hotter Drew up and bumped Nap down -- a good sign.  Have no doubt David will hit late if they get into the pen and need a bat vs. a right.

    One decision means Farrell is average?

    Let's do that math: 1 divided by a million = average.

    Yup, works for me....

    Resting Ortiz now is why I can't go along with Farrell as anything more than an average manager.

     

    He's a DH!

    He doesn't play in the field !

    Farrell, like Francona, must have scheduled this rest in February.

    Unless Ortiz is hurting, this move is pure Francona buffoonery!!

     



    No no, pure rest... But that is not the main point imho, it is resting him after two consecutive days  with 4 hits in each game...unbelievable, just like changing a pitcher with a no hitter after 100 pitches... Nice going my friend!

    So says the master manager evaluator who claims that Francona and Farrell succeed in spite of their buffoonery and Valentine fails in spite of his brilliance.

    Unless the Red Sox tank as badly as they did in 2011, which seems highly unlikely at this point, I would already consider the performance of this team a great success.  Even most human baseball fans would acknowledge this.

    Re: Ortiz is as hot as I've ever seen him. Why does he need a rest now?

    Seems kind of stupid to rest him now.  I could see maybe resting him in the 3rd game of this series especially if we took the first 2 games.  But to rest him now seems ridiculous.  KC has been hot, Tampa was off (chance to put another 1/2 game between them). I understand players need a rest but you ride 'em while hot!

    Rather have a successful "buffoon" than the "idiot savant" of 2012.

    You might be the only Bobby ball washer left. Come on Farrell is a shoe in for Manager of the Year the one criteria you used for proving that others believed you. He is 37, he was facing a lefty, the Sox have a crazy schedule. This does seem like the best time to give the rest, instead of waiting until he is exhausted and the Sox are facing a tough righty.

    No problem resting him against KC when you consider the upcoming schedule.

    With enough injuries and/or under-performances, any team can "tank".

    Not exactly insightful analysis on your part.

    BOSOX1941 thinks Francona and Farrell are nothing but buffoons.

    He thinks Bobby Valentine was a great manager.

    Rumor also has it that he's a lifetime member of the Flat Earth Society.
