    9 years ago, when I lived in Maine, I used to get the Globe delivered to my home. I haven't since then, and I don't get banned or censored.

    Hmmm....




    LOL!  Are you implying that I might have been too provocative in another life?  Are you saying it's my fault.  Stop blaming the victim LOL....  

    The BDC standard is laughable though!  If you call out Stiffy for his vile rhetoric, BDC calls it a "personal attack," and bans you.  CRAZY!

    I think theres only one answer moon, we are sox fans who all hope it will finally be different.


    GREAT answer craze!

     

    I'm hoping it will finally be different as well, but with our player's ages and recent injury histories, I'm not holding my breath on the health issue.

     


    Moon, is this not what spring is about? To hope to have a healthy team? Should that not be part of our excitement. A team that appears to have no ego's (although we know that is not completely possible) to hope for a miracle? "1967" Ya just never, never know my friend.

     

     



    I have not given up hope, my firend. 

     

    I do, however, try to be realistic. For 5 seasons now, I have been hoping that our team stays healthy, particularly the starting pitchers. I have wished for another top starting pitcher each winter, so we wouldn't have to count on the "big 3" to all be healthy and on top of their games at the same time, but it has never happened. It doesn't mean it can't happen in 2013, and I am pulling for it to happen as much as anyone on this board.

    But, I'm not kidding myself, Promise, we are not younger this year, and a few players we signed have serious injuries (Naps & Drew), and some of our own players have had recent injury histories- some are the types that may continue (Buchholtz, Papi, Kalish) while others seem freakish in nature or not expected to be reoccuring (Ellsbury, Bailey, Lackey, Middlebrooks). Dempster and D Ross are past prime, and Victorino is nearing past prime. Pedey has shown signs of nagging injuries. Lester has lost velocity. Doubront might be pulling another Doubront ('11). I'm just not feeling all that excited about our health outlook.

    Maybe living in Texas, where spring begins right after fall, I'm missing out on the spring fever aspect of spring baseball fever. I am, hoever, hoping and praying for the best.




    I have to agree, we are older and and seem to have some injury prone players. But still spring and new flowers are coming soon. My best friend at work lives in the Woodlands and works out of my companies Houston offfice. She moved from Michigan to Texas and loves it there. I would like to escape  this cold winter myself!

    I'm not sure what their criteria is, but I have been calling out softy for years, and I have never been banned. I think they censored a couple of my posts years ago on softy's thread about AGon never going to sign an extension in April. I called him a liar and unethical, and they removed 2-3 of my posts.

    Softy is a racist, bigot, liar and master of misinformation and misrepresentation. He has also made more personal attacks than the next worst 10 posters combined.

    Th e Woodlands is a beautiful part of SE Texas, but I live on the otherside of town in Sugar Land- home of Roger Clemens & Tom Delay (I'm so proud! LOL).

    There are flowers here year round, palm trees, warm winters, etc... Maybe I just can't "feel" the spring fever as much as days gone past, but I am excited about the baseball season about to begin. I try to be optimistic, and actually think I have been one of the most optimistic Sox fans on this site over the past 5 years. I am usually one of the last posters to give up on a season, but maybe I have just finally got some sense knocked into me after coming up so short the last few years. I know good health could happen any year now, but I'm done counting on it, and find it hard to think it is even a realistic thing to hope for. I like our depth this year, so maybe we can handle a few injuries and still do well. I'm hoping for the best.

    I have no doubt that the team is good.

    Joe, did you have any doubt about the 2012 team being "good"?  I have serious doubts about the 2013 Red Sox being good, to the point where I would have offered Ortiz a one year take it or leave it retirement contract, with a team option, of no more than 15M, as well as trading Ellsbury and the nearly sure draft compensation to the highest winter bidder. I would have done the Napoli damaged goods contract, but I would have laughed at Shane (patched with R. Johnson and minor league contract offers to Pods and Sizemore) and passed on Drew. Gomes is alright as a platoon guy.

    This GM will rue those contracts to Shane and Dumpster, as well as passing a windfall chance to trade Ellsbury at the end of 2011. J. Upton was cheap on the trade market, and would have taken care of LF for many years to come.

    Joe, how much confidence have you had in Red Sox middle management, since Duquette left? Right now, Joe, are you confident that current Red Sox middle management will get playoff wins over the next two years?

     




    You do realize that siezmore has had 2 knee surgeries and a back surgery the last 2 years and wont be ready to play until maybe mid-season, right?

     

    Theres a reason why hes still available...

    Always nice to go back and review my little debates with Softy.
