[QUOTE]In Response to Re: The WALK-OFF TROT : Yeah, between that and the $1000.00 donation to Habitat for Humanity on each HR hit, that house is under water. Youkillus Yeah, you did not mention him by name but this is obviously a reference to Gonzalez. Once again, you make my point. Tito gave Pedroia a day off because he was struggling. Gonzalez was not the whole time you were claiming he was. Try to keep up. You are the one who went totally outer limits from the start. You claimed he needed a day off when he did not. You have been wrong the entire time. You can try to distract from the original point but it is not working. You whined because he did not he enough homeruns for you and failed to realize that the whole time he was producing.

See, this is where I was right...from NESN's Tony Lee: and further more Lee writes;
The home run was the third of the current 11-game homestand and his second to clear the Green Monster, indications that he is beginning to fulfill the overwhelming projections that the park was tailor-made for him...
Whether Gonzalez wants to admit that the park has an effect or not, the fact that he has dropped two homers over that big wall in left has allowed some to think about what kind of production he will have when he begins to spray the ball all over the place.
So you see Jim, Lee echoes my original post, almost verbatim, the premise being he had not as yet produced up to expectations, and that he was supposed to spray the ball all over Fenway. To back up what I'm saying, here's my original opening sentence: Up to now he's been underwhelming his reputation. He was supposed to spray balls all over Fenway.
My post began on May 2nd, Gonzalez was hitting .312 1HR 15 RBI, that's not 20M production, of course it's a small sample size, everyone knows that, but it's the ONLY sample size we had. To question, that he might need a day off, is hardly reprehensible. You have to admit, well you don't have to, and probably won't, that the evidence youre using on his production comes post OP, meanwhile I've got Eckersly, BBT and NESN's Tony Lee echoing me.
