    If you're asking Bill to think about one of his assertions, you're tapping the wrong head.

    ps - I also usually refrain from pointing out the stupidity of most of his posts because I feel sorry for him.  But "un American"?  How pathetic is that?

    In Response to Re: In retrospect, THEO & the "BIG O" have done the same with OPM........ : No respect at all !!  I guess that if you point out the obvious, some people always get  (P C) offended.....   "Let me be clear", I look at Theos Bad contracts and wonder how the SOX can survive and get beyond them.... Ben C. has gone back to looking for the Kevin Millar, Bill Muler types and rightfully so.... I would also bet, that THEO is doing the same thing for the Cubs and he has learned from the danger of living with bad policy/contracts/spending !!!  i also heard that Theo was installing SOLAR & WIND turbines to cut down on the carbon print at wrigly !!!!

    Bill - aside from what Bobby V will or won't do with the Sox players, I have to agree with the others regarding your comment on Obama. Personally, he is not my choice for President, but get used to it because he will win again in November. And to say he is un-American is downright un-American.

    Sadly, the best the Republicans have been able to offer up is a "Fat Cat" named Romney who excites no one in the voting population. The other candidate the Republicans give us is Santorum and he should have his mouth power-stapled shut for good. If he were elected, I would seriously have to consider putting my move to Italy on the fast track. At least over there, I know I will eat good.

    As usual, my vote will go to Alice Cooper.

    In Response to Re: In retrospect, THEO & the "BIG O" have done the same with OPM........ :    If they can't perform, they will be replaced...... That goes for any contract that is out of wack.... Meaning the Josh Beckett's of the team.... Bobby V will not tolerate 5 innings per start !!!!
    Posted by Bill-806


    Bill -- your rants would be more tolerated if you could at least try to use facts. Your poster boy for "fat cats" who don't perform -- Josh Beckett -- was one of the best pitchers in the league last year until his last two starts.

    He carried the pitching staff for more than five months with an ERA of 2.54 and LOWERED his ERA to 2.50 after his first two starts in September. Oh, he pitched just five innings (never less) just THREE times, not including these two games:
    4.1 IP, 0 ER on May 4. (I'm guess there was either a long rain delay or he got hurt. He didn't miss his next start)

    3.2 IP, 0 ER on Sept. 5 when he injured his ankle and missed  his next start.

    And you really want the so-called "Fat Cats" put in their place, you might want to pick your spots where you use the phrase. You're posting the phrase in every f rick n post simply reduces your posts to jokes that should be ignored.

    Oh and one other comment about the "Other People's Money." Comparing Theo and Obama in this regard is stupid. Obama is spending taxpayer money -- money we have to pay whether we like it or not.

    Theo was spending Red Sox money as the guy Henry gave that responsibility to, which happens in business. It's money the Sox got from fans who had the choice whether or not to pay. And he was given a budget on how much he was supposed to spend and likely stayed within that budget. That some of the money spent didn't pan out is business.

    Most of the money Theo spent was spent wisely -- most, not all -- and he stayed within in the budget Henry allowed. Obama isn't anywhere close to that.

    And he did go more than five innings. What part of that fact can't you understand.

    Inappropriate content; but now that you mention it; you mean that Cheney wasn't a blatant war profiteer and international espionage criminal? How about what his draconian tax cuts did, turning the national surplus to a record debt, slowing down the national economy and impacting the global economy for decades to come? Or his meddling with the Justice Dep't and FEMA?
