    In Response to Re: BLOWING THE WILD CARD IS IMPORTANT:
    Do the 1969 Cubs or the 1964 Phillies ring a bell???  Well the 2011 Red Sox team belongs in the same category.  For the first time since I was unable to remember, I find myself totally embarrassed by the ineptness of this team.  Injuries at this point are only an excuse.  Other teams gut it up and win in spite of them.  Could this be the worst conditioned, most out of shape team ever?  Probably not, but they are very close.  They certainly top the league in overpaid, underperforming players.  Are they staring at their salary checks too much to notice they are blowing the playoffs?  Do they even care?  I cannot recalll when a team of 5-6 supposedly top starters has ever fallen  so far from grace.  Only Beckett seems to show any pride or be in any condition to even be considered a champion.  Gonzalez was a champion for 3 months.  Unfortunately he seems to have forgotten the season is 6 months.  His RBI total in the last 2 months is in the teens.  Bard was great for 4 months but in the last month has been mediocre.  A future closer?  You must be kidding.  Youkilis and Pedroia seem to be a mere shadow of themselves.  Lackey looks ready to retire.  I understand problems at home and am empathetic.  Perhaps he should have just taken the season off.  The same for Wakefield.  Ortiz has done well on a dying team and deserves commendation.  So does Papelbon in what is likely his last year with the Sox.  Ellsbury has done very well.  That is about it on this team.  Lester has regressed substantially and looks much more like a second or third starter but certainly no leader.  At this point, it seems better to just focus on the future and start the yougsters as much as possible to evaluate them for next year. Even if the Sox make the playoffs, it will be one series and out.  This team though talented on paper just does not have the heart to perform.  Looks like wait until next year once again.

    And your post Norm speaks volumes as to why Pumpsie and I, not to mention many other Red Sox fans, are convinced  that our team will never again win a title of any kind---division, league or WS---until Epstein is replaced as GM and Francona in the dugout.  Epstein's signings, especially in the pitching department, has been one unmitigated disaster for the past four seasons, and Francona is a one trick pony in the dugout.  He plays a bland and dull station-to station game, rarely hits and runs, keep te runners glued to the bases even though this season we have several regulars who run very well, and is ridiculously slow in replacing a pitcher who is getting bombed out there.  In addition, he has made an art form of making the same strategical mistakes over and over again.  The team is in poor condition, was not mentally prepared when the season began, is woefully weak in baseball fundamentals, and when it comes to mental gaffs, it is in a class by itself.

    Now there are some who still believe that the Theo-Tito duet can rally us in the years ahead and lead us  to new heights of greatness but that is fools gold.  They need to be replaced, both of them, because we will never win anything if they stay on.

    In Response to Re: BLOWING THE WILD CARD IS IMPORTANT : Like I said, I don't disagree with you just to disagree with you. I think you are right about Bedard and Harden: Bedard is better than Harden, but both are better than one. As for my predictions of the number of wins, do I need to go get BOTH of our predictions from the other board? I said 94. You were higher. You were wrong about that, and you are wrong about choosing the Red Sox are favorites to win the ALC. I need to correct some of the misconceptions you are spreading around here from time to time.
    Posted by pumpsie-green


    I predicted 98 wins.  I said we were the favorites to go to the WS.  Have I ever mislead anyone about that?  You said 94 wins and also said we'd be lucky to win 84.  If you can choose one of your predictions then so can I.

    And I am more than willing to discuss any prediction or opinion I have ever made.  In the other thread, you deleted an entire thread because other posters were making fun of your predictions.

    Go ahead; I can take it-and give it with the best of them.I plan to keep bashing the underperforming parts of this franchise. You can keep sucking lollipops and waving pompoms while you wear your pink bonnet.
    Keep this in mind: neither of us has any right to tell another poster what to write or how to write it. Its called "Freedom of Speech". Ever heard of it?

    Who were these posters who complain about FA signings at the moment of the signings. I'll bet that they were elated at most of the signings at the time unless they are trolling. Why don't they go on record at the moment of the signings instead of playing the hindsight game. Even a caveman can play the hindsight game.  Put the jerks onto Ignore.
    Posted by BeaconHill19


    My recollection was that Pumpsie was elated at the CC signing, and I wasn't.

    How quickly they disown their own opinions.

    In Response to Re: BLOWING THE WILD CARD IS IMPORTANT : Pumpsie saw me on the Harden/Bedard thread.  He agreed with me that Bedard was the better choice over Harden.  And that apparently confused him.
    Posted by Joebreidey


    Joe, he said he didn't want you to confuse people here.
    He hasn't posted here in years. Why would he give a damn now?
    If he was strictly following you, why did he start this lame thread?
    Why did he choose now to "follow you"?
    Why didn't he "follow you" last year?

    I recall this clown when he quit and made those bogus claims in 2007.
    Like Law after Buch proved him to be the fool he is, Pumpsie was afraid to show his face around here. Now he comes back after a huge defeat years later to feed off the fear and panic, like he did before, and is using you as an excuse.

    This guy is a parasite.

    You weren't so fond of 'Freedom of Speech' when you deleted an entire thread filled with other people's opinions, were you?

    There were some great exchanges between Ipot and Fred on the Brooklyn Dodgers, among some other very interesting conversations.

    All of them deleted because you got your panties in a knot because a lot of posters were making fun of your opinions in that thread.  So I guess the freedom of speech doesn't include the freedom to be reminded of whatever you said in your speech.

    From what I know of him, he seems like a good guy outside of the RS.  He claims to be a RS fan, but he's been bashing us ever since I've known him, and I do not recall him ever once saying anything nice about the RS or anyone on the team.

    Sure, you have the right to.

    But it is really really weak to delete all your posts so that you can conveniently deny whatever you predicted.  I've said lots of stupid things in my life.  I would never deny them.  The only thing that makes us unique are our opinions.

    Even more so in here.  In here, you're not a guy or a girl unless you choose to be.  AL34 could be 5 feet tall and 300 pounds, or a world class athlete when not practicing corporate law.  In here, all you are is reduced to your opinions, and how you express them.  You chosen to delete all your opinions, and your opinions is all that you are comprised of.

    I have no use for Stephanie Klein, but she once said that honesty is the most interesting thing in the world.  Deleting your opinions so that you can pretend you never said those things is dishonest.

    I'd have no intention of talking negatively about anyone.  Never have and never will.  Have you heard me talk about Fred?  Except for a direct response, the only thing I've ever said about him was that he really knows minor league talent.  The only thing I've ever said about Val/30 Something is that he's a genius with numbers, to the point of making my head hurt.

    But if Pumpsie wants to start it, by saying the same stuff that he said in 2007, then he'll be reminded of what he said in 2007.  FWIW, I never even mentioned who co-authored the thread with Pumpsie, since he is not here, it is not relevant.

    That's why you garner the reaspect you have here.

    I don't have any patience for liars or quitters. I will call a quitter a quitter no matter what. But I won't get into the gutter unless provoked. Then... anything goes.

    I admire the fact you show far more constant. Always have.

    Thats right; I do. And I chose to exercise that right for reasons you are very aware of, but choose to ignore. You sign up for a board, knowing the rules, but when someone chooses to use one of the rules, you complain about it. That is what controlling people do: they try to make their own rules if they don't agree with the ones that exist.
    Besides, didn't you want to stick to the topics here? How does my elimination of any thread on another board relate to what I presented as my legitimate opinion of what is best for the team? Isn't that what you called "trolling"?

    Lets see how this works out. My guess is that we make the playoffs and most likely will get bounced in round 1-round 2 at the latest. In which case you will get to wear the tag line that says "Pumpsie Green knows more about baseball than Joe Brady" on the other board all offseason.
