In response to georom4's comment:
it is not my fault if you were embarrasingly duped by Beckett...he was a slug and many people knew it (except the so-called "experts" on this board...nothing coincidental about that Notin - you just werent paying attention....no need to drag others down for drinking the francona/theo kool-aid...
btw i have already predicted that ben is going thru a charade of interviewing folk when he already has decided on Farrell....i may not be right but it is something i firmly believe....and like i said last week this is a big mistake because it contradicts his own message about "changing the culture"...but if you read my wise post last week, i keenly stated its all about the brand and secrecy with the Sox, not winning....i can not help it if i am insightful and you and Joey are like the rainman - answering a question from last week......try to keep up and by gosh, try to say what MIGHT happen in the next season as opposed to what happened already....
The Sox interest in Farrell is not exactly a well kept secret. In fact, its actually news when they are interviewing other candidates.
Yss, you were down on Beckett. Your negativity was ahead of the curve. Be proud of that. You have also been down on Pedroia, Buchholz, Lester, Francona and probably Santa Claus at some point.
If you like, I canb offer my insights into what MIGHT happen in the future. But please, there is no need to rehash the past. you've been psoting on this board with me long enough to know I do PLENTY of prediction threads, although some of them are more for facetious purposes. The ones that are not, however, need not be taken seriously, sicne its not as if the team is out here looking for my opinion on how to run things.
However, there is usually more truth to the serious ones than you might think...
