In Response to Is the sky falling?
[QUOTE]Guy's I know the Sox have not been playing well but please take a look what's going on! They are hurting, Buch has been gone all season, Youk is really hurting, Lowrie hasn't been in the lineup all that much, Becket is hurting, if the truth about Bard was known I think he is hurting as well. This is the time of year where the season is grinding down and the player's are hurting. I have never been a Franconia fan, I know the player's play hard for him, but he is worse strategist I have ever seen! I cannot blame this on Theo though, unless he wanted these guy's to be hurt. Theo just can't trade the farm for a quick fix, A) there nothing out there to trade for! B) If Theo did make a trade you guy's would be complaining he gave up to much. Guy's our team is really hurting!! Give them a break and hope they can gets some momentum going before the playoff!!

Is the Sky falling??????? No!!!!!!!! It's just the ground rising very fast!!!!
I like antiqueman1 above me here am not going to let the obvious fact that this team is hurting pass as an excuse. This is becoming a pattern each year by July. First it's one guy, then another, and then another....... At this point they may as well turn Fenway into a hospital. This year it started even sooner than July, with Dice K, and Buch........ I don't even bother counting Drew since it seems he can't even stand up without getting hurt.
Theo needed to find a way to respond way back then before it got out of control but he did nothing. Maybe all he honestly could do was to add another walking wounded to the MASH unit I don't know, but for whatever reason, clearly he failed to do his job in a way that actually helped. Sorry but this isn't high school any more where a good try may keep you from getting a failing grade. This is the real world and it's only results that are taken into consideration. So look at the results!!!!!!!
So what is left to do? Francona needed to juggle everything around game after game trying to plug all the gaps and as a result everyone is pressing so hard all the wheels eventually just come off!!
When a team this gifted goes this bad all across the board, you can't place the blame on one person or thing.......... There is a lot of blame for everyone to own up to.......
This off season the FO had better get themselves together and do a lot of self evaluation. A winning attitude starts there, and frankly to me from Theo on up it seems they simply just don't care as long as we keep filling the ball park!!
