    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: new mngr & general mngr nxt year : Bosox1941, you and Jack the Ripper are speaking my language on  that poor excuse for a field manager.  The guy is totally out of sorts and makes the same mistakes over and over again.  For some reason he never seems to learn from his mistakes.  Whether it is sheer stubborness or just plain stupidity he seems clueless on the strategy front, and, worse, he has turned his team into a bunch of sniveling babies and excuse mongers.  He needs to go along with Epstein.  Their usefulness is at an end and unless that happens we will be talking about this for the next three or four y ears.  We need a fresh start and someone who will kick a little a!s in the dugout and a GM who knows how to go out and build a successful pitching staff, especially in the bullpen.

    Seabeachfred only comes to this forum during losing streaks. His reputation from Sawxheads preceded him. A genuine troll.

    Still trying to control content here, eh?
    I am on to you. Pinstripezac told me not to bother with you, and I am going to take him up on his suggestion. I don't believe in the ignore button as it stifles legitimate exchanges, but as for you, its down the hopper with you. See ya.

Unconditionally release Ellsbury, Wake, Lackey, Ortiz, Lowrie....heck release them all except Pedey, Gonzo and Lester. John Henry can then rebuild the Red Sox franchise around those 3 employees based on the wishes of the naysayer Yankee Trolls. Sadly, we would probably be a better team

    Your opinion is that Gonzalez, who could finish the year with the highest batting average and RBI total in MLB, is not a great player because he did not rise to the occasion when his team needed him.  And in your opinion that occasion was in May against a second place team in another division?

    Based on the location of your head, I would have had you pegged as a proctologist.

    The criticism of A-Rod was due to his post-season performance - not a six game sample in May.

    Its not just his stats against Detroit. Its his stats against the Rays, the Yankees, and the Angels. What I said is that Gonzalez is not a GREAT player. He is, in fact, disappointing, because of his performance against good teams. Disappointing means disappointing TO ME. I expected more.

    Looks like Harness is once again enabling the trolls, contrarians, devil's advocates, and pessimists. All for the sake of company at 3 am in Seattle. Why does Harness stay up until 5 am Seattle time? That is more compulsive and obsessive tham Babe in Florida. The Harness track season is coming up in a few months and Harness will do something more constructive with his leisure time. The forum will lose its biggest enabler however.

    Posted by pumpsie-green[/QUOTE]   Adrian Gonzalez is one of the top 25 offensive and all around players in the game today.  If you defnine greatness as top 5, for example, he is not that.  The Sox bought him on the cheap because the Padres were willing to take anything of potential value to deal him rather thak letting him walk for a draft pick.   He has been better than anyone might have hoped and who cares if he has struggled against team like the Yankees or Tigers.  The Sox have done very well against those teams without him contributing much offensively from what I understand.   You have to look at the total body of work when evaluating player performance and Gonzalez has been everything one might have anticipated.  He's lived up to the hype.

    After this fiasco if they do not make the playoffs, I do not think they will re doEpstein's contract because of all the money they have wasted on Carl Crawford, John Lackey, and Mike Cameron.
    I would predict Theo goes to Chicago.

    I think maybe some new base coaches would be nice. Someone suggested RI native Davey Lopes the other day on WEEI. After researching it, Lopes has excelled as a baserunning coach with the Phillies and Dodgers since 2000. 

    I cannot remember the last time we had a coach who was an excellent MLB level ball player in their day. Jim Rice I guess was the last one. However Big Jim was not known as a great communicator, and he could not stop himself from an untimely demise in the 80's... so why they thought he would make a good coach was beyond me.

    What makes you think EITHER one of those guys would make good managers? Is it thier extensive success as managers at the minor league level? (Oh wait...they don't have any!) Or just the fact that you liked Lowell as a player and like Eck in the studio? Neither one of these guys have ANY credentials to be a manager. You Francona haters will say anything, even though Tito is THE MOST SUCCESSFULL manager in MODERN HISTORY (Post 1920) for the Sox. Mike Lowell?!?! Really?!? What a silly thing to say.

    THE GUY WHO CALLS HIM SELF SINDARIN HAS IT RIGHT
    ON THE MONEY. THIS TEAM IS ALL " FRANCONA'ED OUT " !!
    THEO EPSTEIN SHOULD BE RELEASED AS GM IF WE FINISH
    THIRD TO TAMPA, A FRANCHISE WITH A LITTLE MORE THAN
    A THIRD OF OUR PAYROLL. OUR MINOR LEAGUE SYSTEM HAS
    NOT PROVIDED US WITH ANY PROSPECTS EXCEPT REDDICK,
    WHO HAS BEEN YO-YO ed UP AND DOWN FOR THE LAST
    SEVERAL YRS. NO PITCHING PROSPECTS AT ALL....AND
    WEILAND +MILLER ARE PATHETIC. KALISH AND WESTMORE-

    MALADY THAT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN FORESEEN. WHAT EVER
    HAPPENED TO THE GREAT LARS ANDERSON ?? ANOTHER FALSE
    ALARM. YOU CAN BET THAT LAVARNWAY WILL NOT GET A
    CHANCE TO PLAY UNDER THEO, BECAUSE THE TEAM IS IN LOVE
    WITH VARITEK. CONSEQUENTLY WE HAVE NO RIGHT HANDED'
    BATS, EXCEPTING YOUK AND PEDEY WHO CANNOT BE MISTAKEN

    Epstein resigned before and if he views the Cubs' opportunity as the right one at the right time for him, he might welcome change.  You are right in observing at it "probably" won't happen, but until the Cubs announce that they have hired someone for the job, Epstein's name will still be part of the rumor mill.  Remember that he was not the team's first, second or third choice for GM when the new ownership assumed control and although his performance in the position has been historically significant with a couple of "bought" championships followed by a predictable media hyperbolic "love affair" and a lot of good luck involved, he is far from indispensable.  The owners know it and I think he does as well.

    Bottom line - few clubs can match the success of the Sox since 2004 and those two get the credit since they were in place during that timeframe.  Not saying I am in total agreement with the direction the team is going - but it is what it is.

    He's killing Texas this year.  That means nothing?

    The Angels have some fantastic starting pitching.  Weaver and Haren are easily two of the best in the AL.  So if you are disappointed that the Angels keep him from producing, can we assume you are equally disappointed in every hitter in the AL?

    (Except Elvis Andrus, who, for reason no one understands, owns Jered Weaver.)
