    Lackey's contract is a GM blunder. Crawford's is even bigger becuase the "can't have enough pitching" contract blunder GMs excuse. Since when is "making the playoffs" the measuring stick of success for a massive budget? You set your sights low.

    You mean like the Rays did for years? They alienated their entire fan base.
    You know as well as I that in business, sometimes you have to spend money to make money.

    In Response to Re: if the SOX are eliminated early in the playoffs..... : As far as the Crawford signing goes, I never got it BUT the answer wasn't going to be to spend that money elsewhere in 2011 IMO. The RS were never going to be a player on Cliff Lee, if that avenue was open, he would have landed in NY because if the highest bidder was going to win out, that bidder was always going to the NYY. There wasn't another starting pitcher worthy of signing last winter. And once Werth was paid more than he was worth, aside from Crawford there wasn't a OF worth making a long term commitment to. So the answer would have been a "Bridge Year Part II". What we will never know is if there was a tremendous amount of pressure from the ownership group to make a splash signing to bookend Adrian Gonzalez. NESN had faced consecutive years of falling ratings and this franchise first and foremost is the lead programming property for a cable network. Yes the RS do have issues in their starting pitching staff and those may haunt them come October if Bedard doesn't pitch like Bedard can and Lackey doesn't continue to improve. But while it is easy to point out how CC has not earned his paycheck in his first year in Boston, the production of their LF hasn't had and probably won't have a great deal of impact on their post season fate. And IMO if you take a hard look at the 2010 FA market, if that contract is dead money it isn't 2011 that it will impact, it will be in the future that this contract will become a choke collar IMHO.

    what you call a 'choke collar', i call an 'albatross.' but we're both on the same page.
    all i'm saying is that after spending 220 million dollars on jd crawford and slackey, it's about time epstein was given a timeout-permanently.

    In Response to Re: if the SOX are eliminated early in the playoffs..... : I never attribute a divisional championship, pennant, or WS championship to a specific player, manager, GM, or FO. It is a team effort and also involves luck. It is silly to attribute it to a component. Doing so however does provide great material for those who love to come here and debate, argue, troll, pretend, and act like experts. Left out of the bickering loop are fans who just enjoy the season and attribute success to the team effort.

      ALL YOU GUYS WITH THE "JESUS IS A SOX FAN"
    THEME, ARE WASTING TIME. YAZZER IS RIGHT.
    EPSTEIN REALLY BLEW IT ON CRAWFORD. I JUST
    DON'T THINK OUR SCOUTING ON THIS GUY WAS
    SOUND. IN TAMPA, THERE WAS NO PRESSURE ON
    HIM AND NO EXPECTATIONS TO WIN YEAR IN AND
    YEAR OUT, LIKE ON THE YANKS AND SOX. HE JUST
    IS NOT CUT OUT FOR THE BIG MEDIA MARKET OF
    BOSTON. HIS UNORTHODOX STANCE AND INABILITY
    TO HIT BALLS ON THE OUTSIDE CORNER WILL
    CONTINUE TO HAMPER HIM. BOSTON IS GETTING
    OLD, WITH GUYS LIKE YOUK, TEK, SCUTARO, AND
    WAKE PLAYING REGULARLY. YOUK IS JUST WORN
    OUT, AND ITS ONLY AUGUST. WE HAVE NO
    RIGHT HANDED BATS TO MATCH WHAT THE YANKS
    HAVE [ A ROD, TEX, SWISHER, POSADA, NUNEZ,
    MARTIN AND JONES ]. ALL WE HAVE IS PEDEY,
    YOUK, MC DONALD, AVILES, SALTY AND LOWRIE.
    NO WAY THIS MATCHES WHAT THE YANKS HAVE.
    IT IS A SORRY FACT. WE BETTER SEE WHAT WE
    HAVE ON THE FARM BECAUSE THIS WHOLE TEAM
    IS NOT WHAT IT WAS CRACKED UP TO BE.
    BY OCT 1, WE ARE 10 GAMES OUT AND FIGHTING
    TO HOLD OFF TAMPA BAY FOR THE WC. YOU
    HEARD IT HERE FIRST.

    By letting Orlando Cabrera walk didn't Sox get as compensation the Ellsbury and Lowrie draft picks?

    What to do if the Sox are eliminated early is no problem for me. 

    I'm going to continue to watch the playoffs and root for the Phillies.  I love watching good baseball.

    This isn't life or death, it's BASEBALL!  :-))
