    I believe once Barnes returns, Abad is gone.

Singles just don't seem to produce as many runs as the home run. it doesn't have to represent a permanent change in approach by any means but I think it is time to consider doing a little more to try and score a few runs.
    I thought for sure I would get some kind of response on this one but alas not so much as one word. Guess just muddling along is ok for this crowd. Couple things though once again. I don't need to hear Bogaerts talking about how much this team misses Papi. We all miss Papi. Shut your mouth and play the game. We understand that you are trying to hit. No need to apologize. What I would say is that if David was still there, I don't think that Pedroia would have run his mouth outside of the clubhouse and no one would be crying about the guys we don't have anymore. Who is leading the way?

    I responded by fixing it for you.

    thanks - i'm always up for a few beers. How did you do that anyway? Is that even legal? Can you do that with tax returns as well? You numbers guys scare me.

    Dustin Pedroia only has 3 games so far with multiple hits. He has yet to reach base more than twice in one game. He's only had RBI in two games. He had one double and no triples or home runs.

    This guy just sucks right now. His flapping gums aren't helping the situation either.

    Technically, you can do anything you want with a tax return. Whether the IRS notices is a different question.

    He has been horrendous. At least the glove is still there. Imagine him with grenade hands like SS/3B? pfff

    I love accountants who say what do you want one plus one to be equal?

    Xander is going to want a bank vault when he comes up for free agency. Is he really worth it?

    Speaking of hitting singles at Fenway.....it may take 4 hits to score a run because of short left field. Ugh.

    I grew up thinking we need power from corner positions, 1B, 3B, LF, RF and obviously DH in AL.

    You fall in love with Sale. Everyone else is trade bait. That's as far as my loyalty goes.

    1 + 1 = 3 is just an immaterial difference in the grand scheme of things.

    A clear cut example of the data painting the picture you want painted.
