[QUOTE]So Ben, tell us what you're going to do if they DON'T make it? To me, this is the worst season I've ever seen for the Red Sox. Yes, I hate the Yankees but you know what? Give them this: they'd find a way to fix the Beckett, Lester, Crawford issues. They'd find a way to get Dice-K winning. They'd find a way to get Lackey into top shape and pitching lights out. Seriously. The Red Sox problems don't beging on the field. That's where they are most visible. It starts at the top. This org needs to look at the Yankees and unashamedly start to do things the way they do things. Wouldn't hurt to look no further than down the road to Foxboro either. Kraft and BB have other teams rebuilding to become the zenith of how pro sports franchises should be run. As long as Luccino, Henry, et al see the seats all filled? They ain't doing nuthin' folks! The only good news this week? Patriots training camp. I'm wearing my Patriots cap now. Season opener can't come soon enough for this guy. At least I'll see a hands on owner who's well respected everywhere. I'll see a coach that demands effort and results or, you are outta' there. I'll see players, every one of them, giving 110% every second they are on that field.

No offense, but what the hell are you smoking?
"Fix Crawford? Get Dice-K winning??? Get Lackey into top shape & pitching lights out???????" HA!!!!!!!
Obviously you have not been watching, or you'd know that the problems with these three go FAR BEYOND "fixing!"
I will give you credit for realizing that the organization is seriously broken. I also accept the point that I think you are trying to make, in that the Yankee organization simply would not put up with the out of control dysfunction in this clubhouse, with the manager (little bobby v.), the president, the GM, the pitching coaches, the starting rotation, etc. etc. etc...........
Let's face it. Luchino & Henry have allowed this organization to become a joke! There is no standard of accountability!!!!! ZERO! It's shocking that it is so blatantly obvious. In fact, it is very clear that the players have absolutely no respect for the owners, & not the slightest bit of fear with respect to anything they do. SHOCKING!
I WILL AGREE WITH YOU ON THIS FUNDAMENTAL POINT. SAY WHAT YOU WILL ABOUT THE YANKEES, & I HATE THEM AS MUCH AS ANYBODY, BUT THEY HAVE A STANDARD OF RESPECT, & THEY WOULDN'T PUT UP WITH THE STEADY DIET OF CRAP WE ARE ROUTINELY FED BY FAR TOO MANY IN THIS ORGANIZATION FOR ONE SECOND! THEY ARE A PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATION. LUCHINO, HENRY, THEO, CHERRINGTON, LITTLE BOBBY V., & TOO MANY OTHERS HAVE MADE RED SOX NATION A CIRCUS! A JOKE! A FREAK SHOW! IT'S BECOME A HORRIFIC SOAP OPERA!
The big problem for me??? This has become a train wreck that I can't look away from because it's carrying the team I love. I'm sick about it! Time for big changes!!!!
