I thought it said "Nava" when I first read it. As in "Daniel Nava says an asteroid won't destroy earth"
For the record that I was not the first Sporting Nerd to give up on Daniel Nava.
Meanwhile, Daniel Nava moves into Allen Craig's apartment in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.
Where is Daniel Nava btw? Did I miss him getting injured or something?

So did Daniel Nava. And this is why:
Daniel Nava. First pitch he saw in the big leagues resulted in a Grand Slam.

Finally got that big upgrade over Daniel Nava. Nice work boys! . ...
Daniel Nava, Grand Slam 1st Pitch. Tell me what's better?
DeAza trade has to spell the end for Daniel Nava and, very possibly, Shane Victorino in Boston.
Daniel Munoz-De La Nava and Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo beat and 6-4 7-5 in the 1st round at Furth
For his career De Aza is pretty good against righties, so I fully expect the Red Sox to keep Daniel Nava because that would be super Red Sox
Would assume the De Aza acquisition means have finally given up on Daniel Nava, but we'll see.

.Lou will come on tomorrow and demand for Daniel Nava to start in right when he gets off the DL, clown.
lol I meant this year where Daniel Nava is our 4 hitter when our LF with glass bones gets hurt
Rick Porcello, Brock Holt, Daniel Nava all signed last night!
Daniel Nava will start at RF and bat 7th vs New York Yankees on Sunday.
Daniel Nava is actually really good so shut up please and thanks !
Every time the Red Sox start Daniel Nava over Brock Holt, an angel loses their wings.
as Joe Costiglione told Daniel Nava, you only get one first major league pitch in your career. Why not swing?
Red Sox lineup: Brock Holt starts in right field, Daniel Nava at first base -
Also, it's troubling to me that John Farrell deemed Brock Holt a better hitter in that situation than Daniel Nava. Unless Nava is hurt??
Craig's HR ends a 106 streak of homerless at bats. It had been the longest streak on the team. Daniel Nava (76 at bats) is on the clock.
where is Daniel nava I am not amused
In April, Daniel Nava and Brock Holt hit .333 with runners in scoring position, but Ryan Hanigan hit .111 and Mike Napoli hit .125.
John Farrell not concerned with Daniel Nava's slow start
- we could say the same thing w/ local products like Scott Feldman, Daniel Nava, & others. Local talent undervalued.
It's a BABIP issue again for Daniel Nava, who's 1-for-his-last-25:
At a time when there's playing time to be won, Daniel Nava is hurting himself by starting poorly -- again.

Poll: What role should Daniel Nava have for the 2015 Red Sox?
Nava hits slam, Red Sox rally past skidding Royals ... Daniel Nava's second career Grand Slam might not have come with the historical significance that his first did, but it was equally, if not more, pivotal. Nava's Grand Slam and Xander Bogaerts added a three-run shot and the Boston Red Sox rallied past the skidding Kansas City Royals 8-4 on Sunday. Kansas City blew a four-run lead and dropped three of four to the last-place Red Sox. The Royals fell 1 1-2 games behind Detroit, which beat Cleveland, in the AL Central. Kansas City is in the thick of the wild-card race. The Red Sox chased Jason Vargas (11-9) with one out in the sixth after Mookie Betts and Bogaerts singled. Reliever Aaron Crow walked Yoenis Cespedes to load the bases and struck out Allen Craig. Nava hit Crow's next pitch into the Red Sox bullpen for his second career Grand Slam and a 7-4 lead. Bogaerts homered in the third and got three hits. He also had a sacrifice fly and drove in four runs, giving him 11 RBIs in his past 15 games. Joe Ke ...

Gotta love Pat Tabler calling Dickey's last pitch as a 'room service fastball' to Daniel Nava
Xander Bogaerts homered among his four hits and fellow rookie Mookie Betts also went deep during a big night at the plate to power the Boston Red Sox past the New York Yankees 9-4 on Tuesday. Daniel Nava hit a three-run shot and Yoenis Cespedes tripled, doubled and singled to back Joe Kelly’s first win with Boston. Betts had three hits and slumping Mike Napoli hit two sacrifice flies for the last-place Red Sox, who have won eight of their last 11 road games. Source: Yahoo! MLB
The next time Boston Red Sox outfielder Daniel Nava is overlooked won’t be the first.
Please send Daniel Nava back down to Pawtucket! He is worthless and just made the classic mediocre lazy *** play.

One and Out Allen Craig goes on disabled list after injuring ankle in Red Sox debut Aaron Gleeman Aug 5, 2014, 1:13 PM EDT 23 Comments Allen Craig Red Sox Allen Craig turned his left ankle while stepping on first base Friday night during his Red Sox debut and now he’s headed to the disabled list. Craig logged just four plate appearances for the Red Sox after being acquired from the Cardinals in the deal for John Lackey. Before the trade he struggled all season in St. Louis, hitting just .237 with a .638 OPS in 97 games after topping an .825 OPS in each of the previous three seasons. He hasn’t been the same since fracturing his left foot late last season and according to Alex Speier of WEEI.com “the Red Sox were trying to discern if there was any connection between last year’s injury and this one.” In his absence the Red Sox figure to increase rookie Mookie Betts‘ playing time, which could potentially prove to be a positive thing long term. Daniel Nava will also see more action.

Final: Red Sox 10 Indians 3 W: Lackey(8-4) L:Masterson(4-5) The Sox bats were on fire last night as they earned their first double digit runs game of the season. Daniel Nava, who has been hot since his latest call up, went 2-4 with and RBI. Dustin Pedroia went 1-3 with 2 RBIs, Mike Napoli was 2-3 with with 2 RBIs, Xander Bogaerts was 1-4 with a home run, Jackie Bradley Jr went 2-4 with 1 RBI, and AJ Pierzynski went 1-4 with 2 RBIs. John Lackey had yet another strong outing, going 6.2 innings, allowing 3 runs on 7 hits. Lackey walked 1 and struck out 5. He did allow a a two run home run in the 2nd inning. The lineup the Sox had for last night's game was absolutely stellar. They were getting on base consistently and David Ortiz was the only player without a hit, but he was walked 3 times. Guys like Jonathan Herrera and Jackie Bradley Jr have been swinging the bat well recently and have both earned their playing time. With Stephen Drew potentially facing time on the DL, Herrera is showing us that we have not ...

The Red Sox outfield isn't just bad. It's HISTORICALLY bad. That's not me saying it, it's well-respected baseball writer Tom Verducci of Sports Illustrated. We'll likely discuss this on Monday's From The Pressbox. Meanwhile, on Thursday night in Cleveland, the Boston outfield continued its anemic hitting. Jonny Gomes, Grady Sizemore and Jackie Bradley Jr. went 0-for-11 with six strikeouts, dragging down the team's batting average from all of its outfielders to .215. They are on pace to be the franchise's worst hitting collection of outfielders since the 162-game schedule began in 1961. Here are Boston's worst groups in that span according to batting average, OPS and home runs, with the players with the most appearances in left, center and right, respectively, listed parenthetically: Red Sox Outfielders, Worst Batting Average (1961-2014) 2014: .215 (Jonny Gomes, Jackie Bradley Jr., Shane Victorino) 2010: .245 (Daniel Nava, Darnell McDonald, J.D.

Bottom of the eight Boston Red Sox vs N.Y. Yankees Dean Anna doubles on a line drive to right fielder Daniel Nava. Yangervis Solarte to 3rd. Dean Anna clearly beat the grow to 2nd, but as he is picking himself up from the slide, his foot lifts off the bag for a moment ( did not call time), with 21 year old SS Xander Bogaerts never taking his glove with the ball off Anna's back. Called safe the Red Sox CHALLENGE!! *** like baseball is not slow enough, they are letting technology into the mix with instant replay. BTW the play was not over turned and the Yankees did not score. Its amazing how things have a way of working out without the overkill..

Daniel Nava, who provided some Opening Day heroics last season, will return to the leadoff spot for Friday's home opener at Fenway Park.
Boston Red Sox RF Shane Victorino has been put on the disabled list. The Boston Red Sox put right fielder Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list Monday because of a strained right hamstring, making the move before the World Series champions opened the season at Baltimore. Jackie Bradley Jr. was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket and Daniel Nava started in right field against the Orioles. Manager John Farrell said Victorino has a Grade 1 strain. ''It's going to require some time down,'' Farrell said. ''Whether that is 15 days or beyond, remains to be seen.'' ''As we tapped into our depth last year many times over, unfortunately we're doing it on Day One,'' he said. Victorino was hurt while running the bases Saturday in Boston's final exhibition game. The move is retroactive to Sunday, the day an MRI revealed the strain. The 33-year-old Victorino won a Gold Glove last season and hit .294 with 15 home runs, 61 RBIs and 21 stolen bases. He also got the big hit that helped Boston break open the clinching Ga ...

MLB announces postseason shares NEW YORK -- A full postseason share for the World Series champion Boston Red Sox was worth $307,323, down from a record $370,873 for the San Francisco Giants last year. The players' pool dropped to $62.7 million from a record $65.4 million, Major League Baseball said Thursday. Boston split $22.6 million, voting 58 full shares, partial shares equivalent to another 14.9 and 21 cash awards. A full share on the NL champion St. Louis Cardinals was worth $228,300, down from $284,275 last year for AL champion Detroit. To put in perspective the relative value of the bonus money, consider that for a player like Red Sox outfielder Daniel Nava, whose 2013 salary was $505,500, his World Series share amounts to a 60 percent bonus for an extra month of work. But for an established star like World Series MVP David Ortiz, the "bonus" money in some ways represents a paycut. Ortiz earned $14.5 million in salary last season. Divided equally over 162 games, that's $89,506.17 per game. But a pl ...

Never Say Nava (Never) By Gino Blefari President & CEO Intero Real Estate Services, Inc. “If you're interested, you'll do what's convenient. If you're committed, you'll do whatever it takes.” - John Assaraf On this past Saturday (10/26), I sat down to watch game three of the World Series with three longtime friends; Gary Raczkowski, Bill Klaus, and Duke Powers. All three of us have children who attended St. Francis High School in Mountain View, which made us proud to watch as the school was well represented in the 2013 World Series by St. Louis Cardinal Player, Daniel Descalso (class of ’04) and Boston Red Sox Player, Daniel Nava (class of ‘01). In the top of the second inning when Daniel Nava came to the plate, Raczkowski, who is a Financial Advisor but could easily be hired on by ESPN, filled us in on Nava’s journey to the major leagues. The story was unlike any other story of an athlete I had heard before: Back in 1997, when Nava was a freshman at St. Francis High School, he stood only 4’ . ...
Congratulations to the Boston Red Sox on their World Series Championship. But Big Props to Daniel Nava of the Boston Red Sox, who was 4'9" in High School. Walked on to Santa Clara University and was cut from the team but accepted the role of equipment manager and washed his teammates uniforms. Left Santa Clara to go to a J.C. was talked into playing baseball again by a friend and the returned to Santa Clara for his Senior year to play baseball. Played Independent Baseball was founded by a Boston Red Sox Scout and acquired the rights to have him report to a single A system for the BoSox for $1.00. He earned a salary of $1,100.00/mo after earning a spot on the Single A team. Last year in Major League Debut he hit a Grand Slam at his first at bat, this year after the Boston Marathon Bombings he hits a walk of home run to win the game, and now he is wearing a World Series Championship Ring! Dream Big.They do come true and never.ever give up!

Daniel Nava! Hit a Grand Slam on the first mlb pitch he saw!
As much as John Farrell should be credited for the Sox' revival this season, last night was an epic fail. A) Is it too late to banish Stephen Drew to Single-A Lowell Spinners? B) Take a webinar on NL-style substitutions. C) We get it, Daniel Nava is a grinder and a great story. But how about batting somebody who's a power threat behind Ortiz? Now you've basically taken Ortiz and Napoli's bats out of the lineup.
After six innings, it's all tied 2-2 at Busch. The Cards struck early when Matt Holliday and Yadier Molina hit a pair of RBI singles to take a 2-0 lead. Daniel Nava tied it up in the sixth with an RBI single off of Seth Maness. Joe Kelly finished his outing going 5.1 innings while allowing two runs on two hits while striking out six. The Red Sox will send up Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Stephen Drew and the pitcher's spot to start the seventh.
John Farrell is an *** for starting Daniel Nava over Johnny Gomes.
Farrell on lineup tomorrow: David Ortiz will start at 1B and Daniel Nava in LF.
Eric Byrnes is talking about left field as if Daniel Nava has never played a game outside of Fenway Park before
Cardinal Nation: Rosenthal ditched his power breaking-ball assortment to throw 11 straight heaters. You want efficient? How's this for efficient? He came in with fastballs of 96, 97, 97 and 98 mph to get Jonny Gomes looking. He threw heaters of 97, 98 and 98 to set down Jarrod Saltalamacchia swinging. And then he pumped fastballs of 95, 97, 98 and 99 to whiff Daniel Nava and earn a congratulatory handshake from catcher Yadier Molina. Do we like heat? steve
Boston's Daniel Nava remains in the game as the left fielder. Boston Pitching Change: Ryan Dempster replaces Junichi Tazawa.
A list of former Sea Digs who are in this World Series. Well, Ortiz DID play here for rehab. Hope this list encourages more folks to come to Sea Dogs games next year (and help the Ronald McDonald House parking fundraiser). Boston: Pitchers: Ryan Dempster, Clay Buchholtz, Felix Doubront, Jon Lester, Junichi Tazawa and Brandon Workman. Infield: Xander Bogaerts, Will Middlebrooks and Dustin Pedroia. Outfield: Jacoby Ellsbury, Daniel Nava and David Ortiz.
A day after Mill Valley's Bryan Price got job, Petaluma's Jonny Gomes starts in over Redwood City native Daniel Nava.
Quote of the Day: Daniel Nava, Jonny Gomes, and ice cream
Jonny Gomes likely to start over Daniel Nava again in Game 1
Don't take this wrong about what I'm about to say! something to get off my chest! Anyone who knows me knows I'm an diehard Red Sox fan! The outcome of the ALCS was wicked awesome but! I'm kind of questioning the decisions to leave Nava out of game six! The following says it all for me: GOMES IN, NAVA OUT Daniel Nava batted .303 during the regular season. He had the third-highest on-base plus slugging percentage of all American League outfielders, trailing only Los Angeles Angels star Mike Trout and Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista. And in Game 1 of the AL Championship Series, he broke up a no-hitter with one out in the ninth inning. Nava wasn't in the lineup for Game 6, marking the fourth time he has taken a seat on the bench during the ALCS. Never mind that he has been the Sox’ primary left fielder against right-handed pitchers or that they were facing another righty, Detroit Tigers ace Max Scherzer.
nothing like an early morning heated debate on the quality of Daniel Nava as a baseball player with
.894 vs RHP - Gomes is .745. I'm thinking about printing up some "Free Daniel Nava" t-shirts.

Shane Victorino on his Grand Slam: "All the emotions went through my mind. No disrespect and I would never be one of those guys if [the Tigers] took it wrong. It was definitely excited running around the bases, the pounding in my chest. I don't like when teams show that kind of emotion and I hope they understand it was a special moment for me, for the city." Daniel Nava added, "I'm never going to forget watching that. Vic was delirious. I think we all were."
Notebook: Jonny Gomes's start was feel-good story for
Cardinals excited to have Allen Craig & his .830 OPS available for Series, Red Sox less excited to have Daniel Nava & his .831 in lineup.
sorry, AL. but according to "raw stats" Daniel Nava was better than Shane Victorino.

Make no mistake- Joe West's umpiring tonight was atrocious, but the Red Sox bats were even worse. Thank the baseball gods however for Daniel Nava. If he hadn't broken up that no-hitter, I'm not sure Boston would have had any chance to recover their mojo in this series. On to Game Two!

SPORTS Red Sox Clinch Playoff Berth, Beat Orioles 3-1 by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS September 19, 2013 10:15 PM BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox clinched their first postseason berth since 2009, beating the Baltimore Orioles 3-1 Thursday night behind John Lackey's two-hitter. Coming off a last-place finish and a 69-93 record — their most losses since 1965, the Red Sox have rebounded under first-year manager John Farrell and ensured at least a wild-card berth in the postseason. They lowered their magic number to two for clinching the AL East. Just before Adam Jones' game-ending flyout to right, the crowd chanted, "Lackey! Lackey!" And after Daniel Nava caught the ball, catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia embraced Lackey in front of the mound as Red Sox players came out of the dugout for their usual postgame handshakes. Earlier in the day, the Los Angeles Dodgers became the first team to earn a playoff berth when they clinched the NL West. Boston scored all its runs in the second on Stephen Drew's two-run homer and ...
