Bostons second base job

Postby Surfs up » Tue Aug 02, 2005 7:41 am

Bellhorn is due back soon. Dos he get the job back? Graffanino stay there. What about Cora? Somebody has to go. And of the three which one gets the most playing time?

I thought Cora was basically a late inning defensive sub. :-? I would imagine Bellhorn gets first shot at it since it was his before the injury, but I really have no idea.

Word is Bellhorn will go the way of Embree and Grafinino will be the full-time guy with Cora being the infield utility guy.

Sounds about right to me, in his rehab start last night for AAA, he went 0-5 with 2k's so it looks like nothing has changed

There is such a thing called clutch and David Ortiz is the modern day definition of it

I hope Bellhorn gets it back. I predicted him to take the strikeout crown this year.

If Pedroia hadn't hurt his wrist we might not even be having this discussion.

Bellhorn must have pics of Theo Epstein cheating on his wife. How does a guy that bad stay in a lineup that good on a team with all that money? He's not even an above average 2nd baseman. Let's keep graff in there until we can try our minor league talent.

The Red Sox have smoothly avoided speaking about this publicly. I think Graffanino will earn the job if he continues to do well for the rest of the time Bellhorn is out.

Theo is not married.

Going on the DL may have saved Belhorn from breaking the strikeout record. He's a FA at the end of this year. I think he is gone with the way Graffanino is playing. Two more hits tonight.
