    Kalish?

    With a platoon of Nava and Gomes in LF, Ellsbury in CF, and Victorino in RF. Where does that leave Ryan Kalish? I was hoping to give him RF and let him prove if he's worthy of a future OF in the MLB, but what happens to him now? Is he back at AAA? .243/.293/.351 in 282 PA. Hardly enough to judge, How many more options does this kid even have? 25 next season, and has been injury prone. What's your opinion of his future and the Red Sox possible view of him.

    I believe he has one more option remaining, so he could start 2013 in AAA if they needed him to.

    He's supposedly finally had a full offseason of being healthy and working out. Gammons recently commented that they'd like to find a spot for him, even if it means having him play all over the field, maybe even 1B. So who knows.

    He need to go down to AAA and earn a call up. He wasn't doing much when he was in Boston.

    I think if he hits well in ST hell be the one platooning with Gomes instead of Nava.

    I believe that you're working from a false premise. Nava sports a career 96 OPS+, oWAR of 1.3, and dWAR of -0.3. In other words, he's the walking embodiment of a replacement level player. Why assume that a replacement level player would be the incumbent to platoon with anyone?

    More likely Nava, Kalish, and others will come to camp and battle for a job. If Kalish shows any of the promise that they saw before he was hurt (note: his surgery was expected to have a 1yr full recovery) then he makes the club as the 4th OFer and probably works in a steady rotation across the OF.

    How do we know it's not Kalish instead of Nava?

    Wouldn't ST tell the tale here?


    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.....

    Last time he was healthy in 2010, he was doing pretty well for a 22 year old.

    Do not underestimate how much the FO wants him to succeed to stop the drumbeats over who went over to the A's.

    This. If Kalish is close to as good as Nava in ST then it's a no brainer they go with Kalish over Nava. He's been hurt a lot, but the upside is still there. Nava isn't getting any better, we know what he is. It's Kalish's job to lose.

    Kalish?

    Wait, people think Nava will platoon in left over kalish? Really?

    It'll be Kalish/Gomes, folks. I don't see any other way. They want to give the kid his chance.

    Keep him with the big team as our 4th outfielder.
    Favourite Teams:

    Boston Red Sox: 5-8, games this week vs. Chicago White Sox (3), Baltimore (3)
    Indianapolis Colts: 11-5, 2013 AFC South Champs, great season guys.
    Looking for new NBA team to cheer for
    Ottawa Senators: 37-31-14, season over, good effort guys.

    Saw that he is working hard this offseason. Would like to see him platoon with Gomes and Victorino, Hopefully get in 130+ games to see what he is made of.

    Well your wish will be granted. If he's healthy, hell have all the chances in the world between April and July. If he sucks they'll go a different route but I think he can succeed.

    I kept thinking they might deal Salty or a RP, and not just lose someone, not that Nava is a key or anything.
