Who do you bump out?

      No. Mediocre would be giving them a compliment.

      Ranked 29th in MLB with a 5.54 team era!

      Cole Hamels is a 4.14 era in the NL. He wont save the Sox and I think he is a FA next year? No way the Sox should give up good young talent this year to add Hamels.

      Hamel's is not the answer, not for his price tag anyway.

      I'd like to see what the AAA arms can do.

      Offense is very good.. If they had 2 legit starters they'd be in pretty good shape.

      I play DFS (daily fantasy sports) and Red Sox pictures are basically a "do not start" unless the matchup is really tasty. And stacking opposing hitters can be a solid play.

      they are about middle of the pack offensively 6th or 7th in the AL plus like 10th in avg, slg and ops, I think they are just about exactly where they were this time last year before the addition of the 2 bats [Hanley and Panda], is Hanley still hurt?

      It seems like you can get tickets pretty easy right now. I get weekly e-mails from the Sox offering tickets.

      Can the Red Sox fix their rotation on the trade market?

      http://www.overthemonster.com/2015/5...to-cole-hamels

      There just isn't a whole lot the Red Sox can do to fix their rotation right now without overspending. Coming into the season, the team just needed one pitcher to exceed career norms and three to maintain their career averages in order to produce a palatable rotation; instead all five pitchers, at one point or another, have flopped. There's hope for a couple of them given recent starts, but the rotation is still a mess right now, and there's no obvious diamond in the rough to be found for Ben Cherington. Unless the Red Sox are willing to spend and spend big, this rotation might have to largely fix itself.

      I just looked at the MLB standings. I was kind of surprised that the Sox aren't worst in the league for runs allowed. There are 3 or 4 teams in worse shape. The more surprising thing is that they're only middle of the pack for runs scored.

      Wright pitches a good game last night, Miley is looking great, Napoli has woken from his slumber. I'm getting excited to see what this team can do when firing on all cylinders.

      Went to Pam, our niece's, in CT for a Memorial Day BBQ and 1st birthday for their son. My mom, Parker's almost 92-year-old great-grandmother was there and is doing o.k.

      Pam's dog is names Remmie. Parker was wearing a little Red Sox cap.

      Nan, my wife, said, "we need to change that and get some Mets/Jets stuff."

      "Be sure to get gift receipts."

      I just took my mom for cataract surgery last Thursday. She did great! Asked if she's going to have the other eye done.

      "No. I could die tonight. Started home hospice care over 2 years ago after my strokes. That was supposed to last 6 months at most. I know I'm going to have a fight with insurance even over coverage for this one. I'm supposed to be dead."
