Thats 1

and 10D sucks

Nice to see the OPS likely won't again be sub 600.

Solid offensive skill set

Still shouldn't have put on the 30 lbs.

Hill didn't pitch last night. The HR was off of Wood who was brought in to pitch to Nevers.

Yep.  Lefty - same gist.

Thanks for the info.

Good piece on Bernie acquisition in the Post.  Yanks mabbed him for 16K, double what they initially wanted to give.

Funny sport sometimes.

My only concern about 10D was his mid-season power outage.

I expect his power to develop and increase as he matures (and adding weight and muscle is part of the process).

He's a 4-WAR 5-tool player and I've no idea why you've ragged on him for the past 2 years.

3.9

I think his defense is overrated, especially by the press.

Sure playing in a nice hitter's park.

Would be a great 6 hitter.  Shouldnt be up in the order vs LHP (.247/.694).

Will he get much better?

Not sure.

heh

you do know that

rule of thumb considers 4-5 WAR players as All-Stars right?

and 10D is just 24, and is a couple of years from entering his prime.

and he's hardly the first BoSox left-handed batter who figured out the advantages of oppo field hitting at Fenway

and he's done a good job in left, and likely losing some range points with JBJ in CF.

No you probably don't.

Happy to hear Brandon Nimmo (4.4 WAR) is an All Star.  Yankee fans I am sure will be proud of Aaron Hicks' (4.7) All Star Year as well.

I'm more famliar with Hicks than Nimmo, and I think Hicks is a pretty good defensive CF with some power, aided by short-porch Y-Stadium..

I like the upside of 10D though and think he's a better hitter.

and to my knowledge you've never posted a negative post about either Hicks or Nimmo, but your barrage on 10D is pretty constant.

And rule of thumb is a quick n dirty guage of a player. and I assume in the case of Hicks his HR #s may be driving his WAR, but just a guess.

Masshole with bad beard and bitter divorce whines.

STFU, Josh, you pussy.

Pretty funny.

Thanks for proving my point.

You cannot keep a promise and you get petulant when called out.

Mind you, you also make up shit, just like you always have.

Mind you, school marm, you're still a pussy. Proved that point with the abject panic you went into about a year ago.

So fuck off, Masshole.

I haven't denied despising your threats to post my private information, Utley. Having had people like you interfere in my life from here and other sites, I find the threats, whether aimed at me or at others, to be chilling.

But while I haven't denied objecting to your posting information and/or a picture of me, neither have I broken promises that I have made to stop making personal references to off-line identity, which you have done repeatedly - repeatedly promising to change and repeatedly breaking your promises.

I may be a pussy, but you remain a Boston-obsessed, lying asshole.

I'd rather be a pussy, given your definition of it.

And yeah, Utley, you are exactly who you seem to be in your posts.

Very Trumpian, lying twit.

The troll has proved time and time again he's an indecent sociopath, with an inability to conform to societal norms. He plays at provocative, but he is not. Stalking and revealing private information is not provocative, its an invasion of privacy, and is used as his defense when his pea-sized brain feels overwhelmed and threatened by other more informed posters who show him up for the pathetic loser he is.

Troll you should apologize to Josh, and never post here again.

Good game by the Brewers - the Dodgers never recovered from the bottom of the 1st inning.

Game 7 tomorrow (their time)!

Guesses on who wins?

Sure.  LA wins with the rocket armed kid - but its their last win this year - as THE FIX IS IN

Oh, look - Utley has a new username.

Oh, look, Josh demos his intolerance for opinions different than his own.

Trumpian Twit.

Quite the pinch hit at bat by Nuņez.

Roberts let Hill throw to Noonie?  Or had Hill been brought in for Devers?

Roberts brought in Wood to pitch to Devers. Nuņez was the countermove.

The other natural feature is scheduled to be seen in LA, I believe, rather than his old familiar stomping grounds.
