    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Best nickname for Bobby Jenks : You are starting to sound like that no-good rascal Pike. You know the one who is always policing the forum and trying to limit "free speech". Poor Pike, he expects everyone to be a good, loyal Red Sox fan and not come here daily to bash, be cynical, skeptical, and pessimistic. Pike  really needs to get a life and stop burying his head in the sand like an ostritch. After all isn't someone who identifies trolls, also a troll, at least that is the logic of the Forum Simpletons. Pike needs to reverse his image and be more like AlibiIke or Andrewmitch. Now those are "real fans".

    Glad you liked it pike. I never disagreed with your position, just your methods. You have at times been intrusive and presumptuous, especially to me personally, that's why some people call you a "troll". I'll admit that you have not been as much lately. I don't think I've ever called you a troll, but I have gotten impatient with you calling me one just because I told a joke. That was the source of the disagreement I had with you. I said that over and over again last year on the game threads. Occasional jokes are one thing, merciless ripping and constant bashing is another. I've told a few jokes, but I've NEVER used abusive nicknames or gotten personal about players that I root for and want to do well so the team will win. Some people just like to tell a joke from time to time, doesn't mean they hate the players or are trolls. That being said, it's the shotgun blasts, the personal attacks, the name calling and the vitriol that I get upset at. Just shows imaturity and stupidity, not team loyalty. On that I agree with you.

    Well, at this time of the year, the men in Halifax go to the laundromat and get turned on by watching Mrs. Murphy's petticoats go through the dryer cycle or else they go the the bakery to watch Pa Whipple make tomorrow's doughnuts.

    Why Utica, that is such a nice cheap shot at a place you obviously haven't been to lately.  It's something like Babe would say.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Best nickname for Bobby Jenks : Well said. The BS is running very deep in here lately. I don't necessarily refer to THIS thread, this is obviously a joke. I'll be the first to fire off a joke or two about a player in good humor, but some of the just pure hatred I read on this forum for Carl Crawford just doesn't make sense to me. I don't get how doing that is constructive, or how it helps the team. Am I annoyed at his lack of production? Yes. Aggravated and frustrated that we haven't seen the old CC yet? Sure. But nowhere other than Boston would they be calling for a player's head after only one year of a seven year contract. If he's still doing this after three years, then you MIGHT call him a "bust". But now? Just too early man. Some of the criticism is so loud and obtuse that the only way anyone can get their money's worth out of it is to actually root for him to fail! Imagine that. Some fans have put themselves in a position where to save face and "be right about him" they have no choice but to root for him to fall flat on his face as opposed to helping the Sox win a WS. That's a shame, and I don't get it.

    Happens to every team who delves into the free agent market, there's a hugh risk why it's best to develope your own.

    People are just having fun. Look at the Yankees with Pavano, sat out a few games out with bruised buttocks.

    I was rough on him too. Maybe Jenks will rebound but up to this point it hasn't been a great signing.

    LOL, but I did watch a few TV specials that Anne Murray did which showed the beautiful scenery of Nova Scotia. Good music too with Kris Kristoferson as a guest.

    There's a lot of beautiful scenery in Nova Scotia.  But Halifax is a fairly sophisticated city, not a hick town.  And there are a lot of passionate and well-informed Red Sox fans here.

    That is one of the greatest posts I have ever seen on this website. Well done, Examiner! Meanwhile, this thread is BS. What will you guys do next year if he has a 1.54 ERA and helps lead us to a WS title? Children.

    Look kim, this was just meant to be humor, like a David Letterman Top 10 list.  In general I'm a strong supporter of Red Sox players.  Bobby Jenks has given me nothing to support.  He's a guy who clearly doesn't take care of himself and he appears to be on his way to getting paid 12 million for nothing.  If he proves me wrong I'll be the first to admit it.

    Jenks could prove to be a very nice part of the bullpen. That is of course if he gets healthy. Hopefully he will be able to contribute, he does have the talent.
