    At this point? They should just have JBJ take a month or whatever completely off without even thinking about baseball. Come back, and rework his swing/approach. There's absolutely zero reason he...

    I don't see him lasting, fringe guys with maturity issues rarely last. If he shuts his mouth, brings his lunchpale, and brings 110%? He could be a great addition. He has the ability.

    Hopefully Castillo can perform some. With pedroias decline with the bat, Maybe we'll see a Castillo-Mookie duo hitting 1-2 in the coming yrs?

    Napoli has put up production worth the #5 slot relatively easily.






    I'd say its an issue in boston over most, they are dead last in SLG% after all.

    He's at worst a #6 IMO...Most guys with 20 HR's/30 2B's wont be hitting #6, this isn't the 2003/2004 Red sox.




    My biggest concerns are this..

    * Players seem to be going to free agency...

    Well right now the red sox are 8th/15 in OBP and dead last in total SLG% which is the biggest reason they are also dead last in total runs.

    I'm not saying cespedes is the guy you want hitting...

    I would argue the same thing, I'd argue '13 is the outlier.

    So far his WAR's are 3.9, 1.6, and 2.8 (On his way for 3.0+)






    Per 162 games he is averaging 32 2B's, 5 3's and 29 HR's (66...

    78 PA's is what? 18 games? That just doesn't give enough sample to really come to any conclusions.






    Overall numbers should go up however. lot Less foul ground and a place that gives a...

    From '11-13 cespedes had a total of 13 Atbats at fenway park. That's not even enough data to get anything out of. Even this seasons total (58) isn't much when it comes to making accurate guesses.

    Ugh....I don't see why ANY decent person from around here would actively search and than watch a fellow American getting beheaded, just...AWFUL!

    Honestly, I am Kind of torn.

    While I think he can be worth his contract, I like JBJ enough to give him another shot. I also Love mookie...And they even have margot who looks like he'll be in AA...

    I'd give him up to 4 x 13 and obviously give him the QO.

    Reasons?

    * Give/take, This is what Cespedes has been in his career. Fan graphs has him at 38.6 Million worth of value total in his 3...

    Seems to me a TON of people are thinking Stanton or bust, I don't know if i'd agree with that.

    Jason Heyward would likely offer similar value (85%), he won't offer the sexy bat...But he seems to...

    I don't know about this signing, do I think he will make his money? likely, He can be a 2.0 WAR player and just about accomplish that.

    My question is this...Is he going to be much of an upgrade...

    even for HS/IFA's, reaching the MLB is rare at 20/21....and for them to have success? even more rare.

    I think the fact he mashed up AAA at the age of 20 and took home minor league player of the year is more so an indictive of future success than Struggling at the MLB level at 21 is for failure.

    XB is 21 yrs old, he was the youngest opening day starter for the sox since who? Dwight Evans in the early 70's?

    Most players his age are still trying to master AA breaking balls...He's trying to...

    I think they will move on from victirino as soon as they can. Maybe ST+However long it takes to get his value up enough to where they can trade him without paying his final yr.

    outside of that?...

    The Impact of Framing

    New Red sox catcher Vazquez (up from AAA) is getting raves about his ability to frame pitches and some say he's a 2.5-3 WAR...

    With the corners being craig/cespedes? I think you need a very good CF defensively. If Mookie progresses to being that? than sure. But his route taking is extremely raw, which is too be expected.

    1 problem with that IMO is that OF would be terrible defensively. Cespedes will be fine in LF but Craig in RF is bleh and 34 yr. old Victorino who is consistently battling injuries in CF? I just...
