     Matt Clement should qualify, but he blew up because of an injury (he did well in 05 until he got a liner off of the noggin). Crawford is now under suspicion of stealing not just 142 million dollars from the Red Sox, but 167 million, as had Crawford not hammered a line drive of of Matt Clement's head in 2005, the 3 year, 25 million dollar deal would have actually gotten the Sox something.

    Not as dumb as claiming the Yankees are in crisis.

    In Response to News: John Lackey & JD Drew under investigation by the IRS!:
    [QUOTE]It appears the two players are being investigated for being just that, players . An anonymous IRS staffer leaked out the fact that these two may have stolen a total of 152.5 million dollars from their employer The Boston Red Sox. When reporters targeted Lackey outside of Fenway this morning he immediately blamed Drew for the "misunderstanding." Drew was cornered by reporters shortly thereafter but he issued a statement on paper saying he had hurt his jaw while brushing his teeth and thus was unavailable to comment. It is also rumored that Lackey may be negotiating for leniency with the IRS via the United States government providing he can offer some concrete evidence in the forthcoming Daisukae Matsuzaka $52 million dollar fraudulent goods trial being played out (see: Boston Red Sox/United States vs. Seibu Lions).   On a side note the IRS dropped its claim against Tim Wakefield stating it was too small to worry about. I am anxious to see how this will go.

    The difference is that danny, myself and several other posters were against the signing before the season began. Before the poor results in a small sample size started turning the minority into a sudden majority. How "stupid" is that?

     I thought the Sox paid Crawford too much money, but I liked the signing.

    It's beating a dead horse, but few outfielders have been so ill-fitted for a team or a ballpark than Carl Crawford in a Sox jersey on a team with a lefty 1b, a lefty CF, a lefty DH, a switch C, a reserve switch SS (Lowrie), and two lefty RFs. That and CC simply does not play Fenway well. He showed me that while he was with Tampa. Don't know if scouts were watching any of the old video of CC looking lost at Fenway. Some guys are built for parks, others don't belong in certain parks. CC is a guy who is built for Anaheim, not for Fenway. He belongs on a team with fewer lefties in the lineup and belongs on a team that must have him high in the order. The Sox don't need him and if anything they have shown they really don't need him whether it's 4 million, 40 million or 142 million. Ellsbury having a career year just adds salt to the wound of wasting money. When Jacoby leaves for greener pastures, they will wish they invested that 142 million in JE, not CC.

    CC also must have forgotten that you can bunt your way on if you are slumping. Instead, it's one bouncer to SS or 3b after another. Same swing, same result. He has to start dropping bunts. It's called trying to help the team by getting on base. The guy's OBP is dropping off the chart.

    I really think anyone was overly excited about Crawford based on the money alone. Many of us even were wise enough to know that if Carl even achieved career averages for the length of the deal that it was still too expensive.

    There will come a day when the Sox won't or can't make a deal for someone because of this chain and ball strapped around the team payroll.

    Always felt Joe Carter and Frank Thomas were guys built for Fenway. They always hammered the Monster well. You can salivate back in the day thinking what they could do in 81 games at Fenway. Did anyone ever think that way about a CC?

    I always wanted Vladdy here (before last winter). Only an .808 career OPS in Fenway, but I think some of that had to do with our good pitching.

    moon, i was at the 10-RBI game that Vlade had against the Red Sox at Anaheim. In his prime, he was a beast, and even after his prime, he can rope the ball. He is a guy who would have done just fine in Fenway. Always feared him at the plate, and always felt that if you make a mistake v. him, he would make you pay.

    We have to ignore the baiter now, Rig.  It's a shame we can't set him up with a hunting trip with his pal Dick Chaney.
