In response to ampoule's comment:
Ampoule, terrific post. Look, Papi got injured in July and now three months later he still can't move. He is starting to fall apart physically and his age is catching up with him. It is part of the aging process and there must be nothing more than a one year contract and no option whatsoever If Ortiz doesn't like it let him go somewhere else where he thinks he can get the contract he desires. Papi has been a big part of our team's previous success but for pete's sake there comes a time when you just have to move on.
I think Lucchino should be terminated on the spot. I'm tired of his corporate gobblygook.
He threw Francona under the bus and pulls all the puppet strings attached to Cherington. Actually, wasn't Epstein's initial resignation due to Lucchino's monopoly of power?
His lies, distortions and phony facade turns my stomach.
While we're at it, Ellsbury(Ellspuff, Mr. Fragile) should also be gotten rid of ASAP. If anyone here actually thinks he's not fragile or actually wants to return to the Sox, would have better odds betting on the tooth fairy.
As I've posted before, I think the tendon problem with Ortiz is the beginning of the end of a wonderful career with the Sox. I think he should be given a 1-yr contract at MOST with a team option on the second year. Don't be surprised if the 1-yr turns into a sad injury plagued one....not because he's lost talent, but because father time is catching up to him.
As for Ells, face it, the guy is a tin man, easily bruised and long disabled, and though I wish he could stay healthy and stay with the Red Sox he wants out and we must try to accommodate him.....if we can. But we cannot just give him away but this winter it is going to be hard to get a lot for him since it would be a one year rental---and there are a lot of other CF that will be available and not represented by that bas@@rd Boras.
As for Lucchino, I compare him to rat s@it; he is that low down in my view, a real rotten do@che bag, but he was given a new three year contract by Priune Face Henry, so we are left with just praying that he stops meddling and keeps his rotten nose in marketing and promotions because all of us, save for him, is aware that he doesn't know baseball worth a d@mn.
