Start Ortiz over Thome?

Postby LCBOY » Wed Sep 24, 2003 5:46 pm

Thome faces Josh Beckett tonight. He is 1-7 with 5 Ks against Beckett . Should I bench him in favor of David Ortiz?

Thome has been doing very well lately, but so has Ortiz. I'd probably go ahead and start Ortiz though. Beckett has done very well.

Thome's first AB: STRIKEOUT

Why does Jimmy keep chasing high fastballs? Especially since Beckett is a hard thrower.

Thome's 2nd AB: STRIKEOUT

He swings at a low pitch and takes a called third strike.
