    Lavarnway has too many holes in his swing for a high BA, and still can't seem to see the difference (until it's too late) between a 2 seam, cutter, and split; he's also fishes outside too much. He needs to calm down and start picking out his areas, and be content to take strikes on balls he can't reach/hit.

    He'll probably end up as a powerful mistake hitter, that sees mostly breaking balls away - which is why his outside pitch/oppo double about 8 days ago was so nice to see. Don't have to pull everything.

    He's never going to hop out of a crouch and catch a pop at the fence half way to 1B, he's not going be good fetching passed balls/WP's in a place like MFY Stadium. But if he can catch the ball, frame the ball, call the game, and throw that ball (all things he can do or learn - his throwing is already good BTW), then what you have here is a plus catcher. If he turns out to be a wizard with the bat you get him to DH or 1B before 900 games caught so he doesn't get used up. What's the problem with that? (rhetorical).
    Yeah we see it the same way. Its a good problem/option to have at least.

    Small sample size (19 games), but Youk's OPS as a 1B this year was .984

    On his career his OPS is .050 higher as a 1B than as a 3B.

    Every 3B/1B that I've looked at like C/1B - hit better at 1B than C or 3B in the same year.

    3B is a grinding position. A lot of 3B are big guys - 6' 2" 225lbs. Diving around kills you. If you take C and 3B out of the mix most long career positional players peak at 26-30, and start declining at 34. 3B start declining at 30, and by 32 are more "declined" than other positions at 34 (including way more position changes and retirements too).

    That's what makes Beltre such an exceptional/rare player. He's never hurt


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Some jerks never learn.....

    swagger dude, Beltre's loaded with swagger. There was a vid of him and V-mart playing with waterguns in the Sox clubhouse. That was good time for this team.

    I'm not sure we want a Salty version playing over 1B in Davis.

    Who is the prospects that played 1B back from the Gonzalez trade?

    Jon Heyman says that the Red Sox are looking to get Ike Davis.


    TRANSLATION: The Red Sox aren't interested in Ike Davis.

    Mets To Seek Veteran Relief
    By Ben Nicholson-Smith [October 3 at 10:00am CST]
    The Mets plan to pursue veteran relievers via trades and free agency this offseason, Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports. Though Mets executives are pleased that several young relievers have developed, they hope to supplement their young arms with more established pitchers.

    “The young guys give us some depth, but we will still need to add,” one person told Martino.

    GM Sandy Alderson spent a significant portion of last offseason’s budget on relievers Frank Francisco and Jon Rauch. The strategy will be different this year, with Francisco, Jeurys Familia, Josh Edgin, Robert Carson and Bobby Parnell already in place. Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reported yesterday that the Mets aren’t expected to re-sign Rauch or Ramon Ramirez when they hit free agency after the season.


    Put a package to include Aceves for Ike Davis.
