I gave you some stars, but it doesn't seem to affect your rating.

I have the Trilogy as well, I've never bothered to play III, I just remember how disapointed I was after seeing it in the theater.

You know Manny had the most outfield assists by any major leaguer a few years ago right?

Manny fields, and the people who play with him respect his play.




Well, you learn something new every day. You know Manny also had the most errors and worst Fielding Percentage of any LF starter that same year?

Ouch...assists are easy to come by playing left field at Fenway...

That's false... He had the third worst fielding percentage

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/stats/fiel...umn=fieldingPct

Once i get home, I'll check out how hurtful these errors are. If Manny commits an error and it deosn/t come back to hurt the team, it doesn't really matter.

He still had 8 more assists than the 2nd most assists in the AL.

Manny isn't paid to field. he's paid to hit.

And yes, Manny would be a DH if Ortiz wasn't on the team. BUt also if Ortiz wasn't on the team, Wily Mo Pena would be the DH for the Sox right now.

Haha...duh.

I can't think of anytime where Manny's defense lost a game for the Sox...

If defense wins championships, does lack of defense lose championships. Since the Rockies are the best defensive team in the history of the game, it seems nobody has a shot against them.

You know the 2006 Red Sox were the best defensive team in the history of the game up until the Rockies took that over this year. Red Sox missed the playoffs because of lack of pitching depth (after going into the season thinking they had it). Now defense wins championships is a soccer, basketball and football thing.

PItching AND defense wins championships in baseball. Considering pitching is part of the defensive effort. The Red sox have the best pitching left in the postseason (ERA wise for the year). So we shall see what the does for them. Certainly, Beckett hasn't let them down, it's Schilling and Dice-K that have gone 4 2/3 and let the team down. Wakefield pitching four great innings, then ran into bad luck in game 4. He's also available for game 7...

I see it that the Sox should have only allowed 2 runs at the most in that 5th inning in game 4... They SHOULD have won that game...Boy, would that have changed things.

Well the Sox didn't do enough to position themselves for a championship last year. Pitching does fall under the umbrella of defense. Beckett is a stud, Dice-K is not even close to his hype, Schilling could come out and throw a 2-hitter you just don't know.

As for the Rockies, their pitching has been damn good in the postseason, something like 4th best ERA ever [i could be wrong, off the top of my head]. You can't doubt the Rockies D.

I'm not saying the Sox can't win. I'm just saying it will be interesting. Whichever team makes it out of the AL is supposed to beat the Rockies. Sox and the Tribe were the two favorites entering this year.
