Jeremy Reed plays first base and all three outfield positions, particularly center field (which he plays well). I wonder if Reed will be a future fourth or fifth outfielder/first baseman for the Sox.

Boy I hope not. Jeremy Reed sucks. So much.

Reed plays the same positions as Kotsay and, at this point, is likely the better outfielder. I would, however, expect Kotsay to be the better pinch hitter, as Kotsay's lifetime average pinch hitting is around .325.

I don't know. At first response I wanted to say worse, but I have to say, I am pretty confident Jeremy Reed can hit 225 with a 650 OPS, and he actually runs decent and plays good D.

I really wouldn't hedge my bets on that, Kotsay may be bad now but there was a time he was a legitimate above average MLB player who has been slowed by injuries and age.

Reed, for his careeer has a .666 OPS. He is just a terrible hitter. As miserable as it is watching Kotsay everyday in the lineup, Reed would be downright depressing.

I'm fairly excited about Sale, but his delivery concerns me. It looks like an injury waiting to happen. IF the Sox have plans to use him as a starter in the near future, I'd like to see them work with his delivery.

Yeah, but I wouldn't wanna mess with his arm slot because IIRC that's contributed to his success, and arm slots also work differently for different bodies. There is no concensus between mechanics guru on arm action. For example, some say scap load is good, some say it's bad.

First, the Sox should definitely stop him from recoiling after followthrough because it increases the risk of injury (I believe this is supported biologically). Also, I'd get him to use a bit more lower half to reduce strain on his arm. He's using his lower half adequately now but given his tall lanky frame, I'd like to see him generate the velocity without stressing the arm. Peavy displayed both of these problems and he has had health issues in his career. I don't want to see Sale following his path.

Sale tonight

Struck out the first two batters he faced.

Gave up a homerun to Alex Presley and then gave up a single and walked the next two batters.

He got out of it throw by striking out the next guy looking.

His control wasn't the best tonight (35 pitches, 16 strikes).

He reminds me a bit of Buehrle the way he just gets the ball and throws it. Not a lot of time between pitches.

How many innings did Sale pitch in college this year? My buddy said 150ish is what a Sun Times article is saying but I found a website that says 103. Anyone?

I believe I heard/read the same as you, 103. Or at least in that same ballpark.
