    Hot Stove Season too long....Driving me Crazy...Proposal (It's crazy too....)

    Sorry friends,
       but this endless yammering is driving me stark bonkers.  

      It is probably worse this season than some because of the collapse.  But I can't take much more.  And its JANUARY 20th ...only January 20th.

      I likes me the Pats and G-men.  But that's just ONCE A WEEK and never really satisfies the Sox fan in me.  I actually played more organized football than baseball, same is true of basketball, but ... that was back when the interstate system was young and shone white in the mid-day sun.

      Gimme some RED SOX BASEBALL!!!!!  

      I'M GOING NUTS!

      Proposal:  Spring training in AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND AND BALI (maybe the Solomons ....)

        Rosters increased to 40 man for the whole season, but with 25 active at a time, say for a 30 day period.  Builds in rest and recovery time for pitchers,, especially. Why? So we can have a 9 month season, 210 - 220 games.

      Alternative cold weather sites cold be establsihed in Pueto Rico, Mexico, Brazil and other Carribbean locales....

      When April 9 or 10 comes up, move the remainder of the season north to US/Canada.  

       ... ... ... 

       It would be crazy ... some may say it would wear out players, but you know what?  They are ALREADY playing WINTER BALL .... then come to MLB ....

       Lots of logistical problems ...  but I need me a Red Sox/MLB fix.

    In Response to Re: Hot Stove Season too long....Driving me Crazy...Proposal (It's crazy too....):
    The equipment truck will exit Fenway Park on Feb. 11. Pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report on Feb. 19, with the first workout two days later. The first full-squadanks for the  workout will be on Feb. 25. The Red Sox will open JetBlue Park, their state-of-the-art new Spring Training facility, with a college doubleheader against Northeastern (2:35 p.m. ET) and Boston College (7 p.m.) on March 3. A day later, the Sox will host a Major League opponent for the first time at JetBlue Park when the Twins, who also train in Fort Myers, Fla., take the short bus ride.

    Once you've spent a considerable amount of time being insane, you become comfortable with it.

    I don't even think about it very much anymore.

    The one thing about being crazy that I find funny is that the world isn't much different from when you are sane.

    Pants still go on one leg at a time, shoes go on one at a time....sometimes with the left shoe on the right foot, but more or less the same.

    Much more fun to post when the Sox are actually playing (and winning) rather than trying to guess what the new season will bring.  During the off season every fan is a GM and during the regular season every fan is a critic.

    Cheer up, Yaz old friend.  It's just a few weeks.

    Until then, we can use DVD's of 'Pride of the Yankees' as frisbees.

    (No offense, Zac.)

    Pedrioa/Theo is still my fav, Zac. Still brings a chuckle.

    And that last shot just sort of summarizes Sept. 2011, don't it?

    No, Newt defines marriage as being between a man and a woman and a woman.

    Not between a man and a man and a woman.

    Or is it just one man, one woman and a lot of questions?




    Oh, just one man and one woman?  Check your math, Newt. Please.

    Thanks.

    Newt was very clear when he said marriage means just one man and one woman ... unless the woman has an illness, and then the logistics are free to change

    Crazy at it seems, just seeing your name and avatar is somehow soothing. 

    Crazy seems to be a theme here ....

    Too true, Tom.  I was really looking forward to the BCS championship game and have enjoyed the NFL playoffs - except for Tebow getting busted up.  Catch 22 there .... really like Tebow, but he wass playing the Pats.
    I do have two new Sox books to read.  Saving for the dolldrums.  One is mostly pics, so won't take long to read ...
