    Clubhouse leader

    I knew when Mike Lowell retired no one would come forward to take his place as clubhouse leader. Varitek has been a terrible excuse for a "captain". The "C" on his jersey should have been placed on Lowell's jersey in 08.

    It is painfully obvious that this years Sox team had no leader. Someone will need to step up and take on that role next season. Not sure who that will be.

    Let's put the C on Beckett's jersey and turn the clubhouse into Josh's Pub. Just think of all the fun the players will have. The Red Sox could open it up to the public (source of revenue to replace all the lost season tickets), allowing us to go in and get drunk with the players while the stands are empty and the team goes 2-10 in April and 7-20 in September....or worse.

    I would like to see Lowell come back and manage this team.

    There are many worse choices than Lowell. I would be okay with Mikey for sure.

    Lowell knows what it takes to win. This team needs that.

    I think that Lowell may be a good manager, but you still need some coaching experience before you can be considered for a manager's job.  I can think of several other former Red Sox players that could be good managers, but have never coached, (Kevin Millar, and Sean Casey).  I am sure that their are many others that would be good candidates, but still need some coaching experience.

    Valid point Susan, but if he has a strong experienced support staff he could do just fine. Francona's assistants did not help his cause very much this year.

    No sox player other than Pede should become our new captain.
      You can't have a part time player "Tek" who has known most of the guys and staff for years expected to be the voice or disciplinarian this team needs.

    First of all, no more "C"'s on jerseys.     That's a hockey thing.

    As far as coaching experience goes, I'm not sure how much Kirk Gibson has had but he sure has done well with AZ.

    He started with the Tigers in 2003 as a coach and became Arizona's bench coach in 2007.  So he had 7 years experience.  I like Lowell but everyone has to pay some dues before they are just handed a job.  It's how it should be.

    The Sox had a leader - he just led them the wrong way.

    Lackey showed the pitching staff the way to ruin and beckett led them there.

    The only way a "leader" could have prevented the collapse is if he put Lackey in a burlap bag and tossed him in the river.  Or at least did the old bar of soap in the towel and given him a beat down.
