    Shall we look in on our departed this spring?

    Reddick    .344   .364   .563   .927
    Lowrie     .364    .462   .636  1.098 
    Scutaro   .150    .320   .200   .520

    Well, looks we may have gotten one right anyway!

    Departed? or "Deported?"

    I often think of "departed" as dead....but that's just me.

    Ha! Good one Zill. I did almost put "dearly departed", but that WOULD have been more like dead.
    I realize you can't put much stock in to ST stats, but I really do expect both Reddick and Lowrie to do well in their new digs. Scutaro is still in shock I believe!

    It's only a matter of time until Lowrie gets hurt/sick.

    Actually, the other issue with Lowrie is his extremely limited range at SS.  He'd make a decent first baseman, but as a shortstop he looked like Tanner.

    The Patriots went winless one year in exhibition and made it the Super Bowl.
    The Sox won the Grapefruit League one year and then had a terrible season.
    The Sox finished last in the ST standings another year, and I think that was when they won the '04 series.

    ST stats mean nothing except for those trying to make a roster.

    Yes, we would have been a much better Spring Training ballclub had we had these guys.  A sure lock for the Mayor's Cup.  At this point, we'll just have to hope we win it.

    I thought this thread was about the movie "The Departed". They filmed alot of it in the bar I used to live above in Brooklyn. Would be cool to meet Space there when I go up, maybe mid May.

    I can see Reddick having a "Nick Swisher" type career, who I also think would be a good fit for us in RF next season if our guys don't work out.

    Won't an 0-4 day in spring training at this time lower your BA by 100 pts? Actually I'm hoping that Reddick, Lowrie, and Scutaro have great years. I'm also hoping that Bailey and Melanchon do well also. It is possible that Cherrington and the other GMs were all winners.

       I remember a interview Lowrie gave when he was down at Pawtucket. This was the time when he and Crawford bumped into each other. Lowrie kept insisting he wouldn't play till he was sure he was 100% healthy. This coming from a ballplayer IMO should have been bustin his butt to get back to Fenway, good riddance to him.

    Good point, but I honestly thought this thread was going to be about famous people who dies this spring.

    Let's see. Depart means leave, and departed means dead? If the present tense is leave shouldn't the past tense mean left?
    I see dead people!

    That worked well when he came back too early from a mis-diagnosed wrist fracture.

    or others who came back too early and made their injury worse:

    Cameron hernia
    Ellsbury fracture
    Pedroia fracture
    Lowell hip DJD
    Youk hernia

    Maybe lowrie learned a lesson after hiding his wrist injury from the team and going something 1 for 20 in a pennant drive, before he came clean. People busted his chops (myslef included) for not being honest, but it did show he was willing to play through pain at that point in his career.

    I don't see how an 80% Lowrie was going to help us anyways, when a 100% Lowrie was nothing more than a servicable utility infielder.

    Mr Moon,
    You may have written him off too early, and it looks like he will get a chance.

    I agree, but while here, he was what he was.

    (Remember, I was the author of the longest Lowrie thread on this site... "No Pop Jed..." the one about him leading the team in Slg% vs LHPs.)

    True.

    He needs three things to happen to fulfill his potential:

    1 Stay healthy
    2 Stay healthy
    3 Stay healthy

    Just kidding:

    2. Hit RHP like he used to.
    3. Pull a Jeter, if you have bad range you can't make errors (ie like he did as a rookie).

       So in your opinion A-Gon, Pedroia, Scutaro, Youk, and Salty should have sat down because they certainly were not 100% healthy. What bothered me about the interview is that he stated he wouldn't play if 100% healthy at least six times. If you look at fragile in the dictionary you see a picture of Lowrie.

    I was thinking we might have heard how Pap was doing in his new home!!!!

    I wish him well--like I wish Jed, Scu and  Josh well--they all did their best while part of the "Nation."

    There will be more departing soon and there will be more coming soon.

    Should be interesting--The Jays and Rays may be tough for the Sox and Yanks to overcome.
