    Thank you, although I question your statistics,  I consider that a compliment.The trouble is, to the lefties, anyone politically left of Obama, Biden, Reid or the deceased Kennedy is, to them,  considered an ultra-conservative which is truly laughable.  I don't count JFK in this statement because today he'd be considered ultra-conservative.


    Actually I dislike any politics on the baseball board, right, left or otherwise. If I wanted to talk politics I'd be in the politics forum, which I'm not. My biggest problem with softlaw, and you for that matter is the insistence on bringing politics onto the baseball forum.

    So,in order to make a bad team better,they need to get rid of their best offensive player?Then they can replace him with someone who isn't as good.This will somehow make the team better?

    That's a novel approach.

    Thank you. Sorry if I was harsh, but election season really seems to bring out the worst in me.

    If Ortiz is allowed to leave, the Sox better amass the best SP rotation in the league.  They will be suffering a lot of low scoring games.  Not saying it might not be better to just bite the bullet now, as opposed to re-upping Ortiz for 2 or 3 years, just know that he is by far the best offensive player on a weak offensive roster.

    OTH, is there any doubt that if they DO extend him on a multi-year contract that he won't get injured and see production fall off?  That has happened  in every 3+ year contract they have agreed to since Dice-K's deal in 2007, no? 

    And if they DO NOT extend him a multi-year deal, it is a given that he must go.  He is too big an ego and distraction to make up for his ability to hit HRs.  Just imagine how insolent he will be if he gets "disrespected" with another $15 million arbitration deal?

    Is that right? What about his many aliases? Are they banned too? Personally, I favor a vacation rather then permanent banning for bad behavior. People can learn to behave here with proper persuasion.

    papi should walk (no pun intended) he is overpriced for his position and health prospects are not good...but the biggest reason is we need a new direction....take that 30 mil and give it to someone else...preferably a pitcher




    Yeah, but he produced this year, so IMO he gets one more year (but not two). He deserves one more year.

    Sorry WallyBrainDead...I am not going to get sucked into a personal back and forth with you no matter how hard you try. The fact that you persist in doing this reflects on you, not me. Again:

    TALK TO THE HAND!

    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.




    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.

    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.

    pumpsie I to do not desire permanent bans on anyone. With 2004Idiots if the BDC simply implemented Thread Creation to a max of 2-3 a day it would have served its purpose, along with suspending him every single time he re-loaded the same cut/past over and over again.

    I would consider it a priveledge and a sort of sport to terminate any moniker that was pike's. I would do this for free if the BDC asked.

    Over the years there have been very few "weirdos" if any at all on this forum... meaning no perverts, no profanity laden posters, and whatever. Those are the types you would want to do away with forever. It has been quite clean here from my point of view.

    Honestly for someone who seemingly despises the forum as much as pike he sure spends a lot of time here... there must be some troll term out there for that.

    It is no secret that I think Pappi should go.  The sox are announcing that serious talks with David will begin soon.  Best to get this over asap.

    I wonder if Papi ends up with his buddy Tito?

    Catchy phrase, but what, exactly, is this "new direction"?


    Without Ortis next year, where does the offensive production come from? The #1 and #2 hitters?
