Okay nice look. Now more Sox news, or are you too busy holding town meetings on healthcare?

Nice. One bit of advice, though: don't "mask" the url on *all* of your pages (just the home page should suffice). That will make it tough for someone to share a link to a specific post they like, and can hurt your traffic.

Hanley Exits Stage Right

Hanley Ramirez has been released by the Red Sox.  With Pedey coming back, this had occurred to me as an option but a very unlikely one.  It seemed like having three catchers was a luxury they couldn't afford, or they'd send Brock Holt down temporarily or put Nunez on the DL just because he really is always injured so why not.

In the end though, they realized keeping Hanley didn't make sense.  If he came out of his slump, you're likely going to get stuck with him for next year or have a conflict with him and the fans when you bench a productive player.  But it was more likely he'd have good moments but never be all that good.  He's been terrible for about 3 weeks now.  Cutting bait with Hanley means you have more money for next year (Kimbrel & Mookie perhaps), you don't have the headache of however he's going to act if/when you bench him, and you keep other options on your roster.  As for the money, you're already spending it either way so don…

The 2018 Red Sox Biggest Liability: Infield Defense

This Red Sox team is stacked.  At the moment, the biggest concerns seems to be the Mookie Betts hasn't been hitting and the fifth starter is likely going to be the perfectly capable Brian Johnson or Hector Vazquez for the first month or so.  But this team does have one real problem with it - and another possible one I'll write about later.  The infield defense has the potential to be pretty bad.  Given that I'm usually the one seeing hope in dark Sox times, I figured I'd try to dampen everyone's spirits now that we're cloaked in the warm glow of J.D. Martinez in a Red Sox uniform.

Based on what new manager Alex Cora has said so far, the Red Sox most likely Opening Day infield will be Hanley Ramirez at first, Eduardo Nunez at second, Bogaerts at short, and Devers at third.  That's a group that has the potential to really hit, but they also all have big defensive question marks.  It's not great when Bogaerts is your best defensive infield starter.  For the…

The Hard Truth About Dustin Pedroia

For whatever reason, second base is a position in which career longevity is rare. Dustin Pedroia is 34 and most of his modern comparables didn't play much or play well beyond that age.  As I detailed a little while back, really solid second basemen like Jose Vidro, Carlos Bearga, Ray Durham, and Ian Kinsler all puttered out (or are currently mid-putter as is the case with Kinsler) around that time in their careers, or slightly earlier.  Placido Palanco is probably the best case scenario -- and he moved to third. 

It is of course possible that Pedrioa has some good years ahead of him.  It's possible his knee surgery eventually fully heals and gives him new life.  But it's also possible we're seeing the beginning of the end, or even the end of the end. 

I, like any Sox fan, want to see Pedroia out there and succeeding.  I want to believe that his passion for the game and Scrappy Doo-like "let me at 'em" attitude will win out.  But, while I'm not a docto…
