Pedroia on Iglesias: "There is no way, in life, that you have hand-eye coordination like that and you can't hit. That's impossible. You just need to use it."

The Yanks would only lose a 3rd round pick if I remember correctly but their luxury tax hit would be huge. Every once in a while Boras loses and this might be an instance. I still think Drew goes past more »

All this stuff is very small sample size but the Delarosa data is encouraging. And I'm looking to buy stock in Mookie at this point.

Jasko, oh omniscient one. I will make sure to consult the oracle before posting again.
You don't know Jack, Jasko.

Betts so far today is 1-2 with a double and a walk and his 4th SB. He's hitting .471 with an OBP approaching .525.

For example, Lester says he's willing to take a home town discount but we hear $20 mil per year bandied about and there is no contract in sight but we hear him speculate how a Scherzer level offer wou more »

There is little indication that Betts will be a plus defensive SS. He was already moved off the position in the low minors. The guy is clearly a stud but he's not everything to everyone. He probably e more »

An undiscussed factor is that Japanese players have a much greater loyalty to the team they play for and the ownership groups they play for. Which is exactly why I like them so much. When Matsui broke more »

Word is that Scherzer thinks he's worth 7 years and $144 mil. And you know what...he probably gets at least that. It's the price you pay for greatness in mlb these days. Some team like the Cubs will b more »

In response to moonslav59's comment: Bogaerts is just worth a ton more if he sticks at SS. We are taking a position which is normally a .750 OPS slot and maybe getting a .900 OPS level of performan more »

It would have been worth it to sign Kuroda just to knock the yanks out of the playoff picture. Now they will be gnawing at us all year.
Posted 04/12/2014 11:50:57 EDT
Realistically, Drew was an average SS. Why lose the possibility of a pick, over $10 mil per year of cash, and commit to him long term when we get essentially the same offense and defensive value overa more »

Hanley Ramirez didn't look to be nearly as good a hitter in the minors as Xander and he has averaged an 880 OPS in the majors. We don't know what level Xander will reach, and of course we would be for more »

We were losing 6-2 against him in the 6th inning a few minutes ago. Against arguably one of our 2 best pitchers this year. Removing him from the Yanks and adding him to our rotation would have been hu more »

If we had made a strong run at Kuroda this off season we wouldn't be in this situation. But it was Oh NO, Kuroda isn't worth it, he's too old, he's fading fast ...etc. Watch him put up his customary s more »

In the long run, IF they can keep Bogaerts with about average defense at SS, it opens up the rest of the infield for killer offensive performance level by potentially having Pedroia, Napoli and someon more »

I'm not sure we lose more than 10-15% in defense from the drop from Drew to Bogaerts. Drew was over rated defensively.

Bring on the Yankee bullpen!
