Behind the Bases

Jacoby Ellsbury Is Red Hot

With his 15th homer of the season, Jacoby Ellsbury is 5 home runs away from being the first Red Sox player since 1987 to have 20 home runs and 25 stolen bases in one season. He has a batting average over .400 in July.

 

Dustin Pedroia Is One of a Kind

In his last games, Dustin Pedroia has 19 hits (at least 1 per game) and a .404 batting average. Pedroia ended the marathon in Tampa in a eventually game winning RBI single in the top of the 16th inning. Dustin Pedroia is getting ready to creep over .300.

 

Carl Crawford is Working Behind the Scenes

Crawford has improved, with a .333 average since his return from the DL. Crawford used to play amazing in the Trop, a hot stadium. My theory is that as the temperature gets warmer, Crawford will become a better hitter. Expect big things from Crawford in every second half of his 7 years in a Red Sox uniform. I would also expect another slow start in April.    

 

Andrew Miller is ON

With a 4-1 record and a 4.65 ERA, Andrew Miller might have just earned himself a spot in the Red Sox rotation. Even when Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz come back, I am confident that Miller will not go down to the minors. Next year, expect incredible things out of this guy.

 

Josh Reddick Cannot Go Down

Reddick has been amazing since Crawford went to the DL. However, with Crawford back on the team, Reddick can no longer play left field. However, the Red Sox recently put Reddick in right field, possibly a way out of the minors for Reddick. He went 2 for 3 in the game, but the main question os of he was comfortable playing right field for the day.

 

Josh Beckett Isn’t Having an 07 Year, He’s Having A Better Year

Beckett is second place in the MLB ERA rankings at 2.12. He definitely has less wins than deserved, but he has defeated strong teams with ease. It all comes natural to this guy. Josh Beckett is amazing!

 

A-Gon Is “A-Mazing”

Gonzalez leads MLB in average, and he will soon have over 20 home runs. A-Gon hasn’t hit as many homers as expected, but he will have a home run streak in the second half of the season. He always gets intentionally walked with runners in scoring position even with Kevin Youkilis due up. A-Gon is the definition of intimidating opponents.

 

Expect more information to go onto this post. I will add in Youk and any other players that I can think of. Help me out with ideas. I’ll try to write about them as soon as possible. Thank you for reading my blogs.
