    Probably two items on the agenda:

    1. Making sure everyone clearly understands that even though Papi is raking, running well, and picking right up where he left off in 2012, he is still d.o.n.e., and everyone should expect him to be back on the DL and his season overwith any day now.  No need to think of him as a full time player.  And don't think he isn't washed up.

    2.  Manage expectations.  Even though the club is playing great now, it is vital to avoid confusion:  the club is not built to be a contender, so everyone should lower their expectations to "squeek into the playoffs".

    Hopefully nothin to worry about. Just seems strange that there would be any dissent at this point.

    Probably trying to figure out if they should Bill806, Idiot2004 and Conan on the "IGNORE LIST".

     

     

    Just my extremely ignorant, conservatively liberal, all knowing, pervasive, practically meaningless and but extremely intellectual points of view.

    Pedroia: "Iggy you're the best SS we have, and clearly deserve the starting job over Drew; however, he is getting paid 9.5m this year... So we have to see you waste your talents in the bench"

    Iggy: "No hablo ingles"

    And Drew is justting sitting there doing nothing.

    Or - 

    Pedroia:  "Iggy you're the best SS we have.  Why the heck did it take signing this dude (points to Drew) for way too much money to get you to take your hitting approach and conditioning seriously.  If you hadn't been resting on your bonus baby pillow for the last two years, we never would have had to have another Drew in here."

    Iggy:  "No hablo Ingles".

    Drew:  "Don't look at me.  I just work here man."

    It could be a highly personal matter.  I would hate to speculate.

    Hey, maybe it's a team meeting to tell everyone what a great job they're doing?  As a matter of fact, I've called staff meetings just for that purpose.

    Not ALL team meetings have to be negative.

    Re: Players Meeting

    some times it is just to ensure that every one is on the same page. That as the season moves forward that there will be player moves that always do not seem fair but it is a business and they know JF & management is doing all he can to make them all successful.

    Or plans for the team to do something as a team for the community.

     

    I hope it is not to discuss anything that concerns the health of a player or family

     

     

     

    Love the Red Sox and enjoy the ride every year

    I remember those types of meetings at a place I used to work at. Everything was hunky-dory and there would be no layoffs because everyone was doing a great job. A few days later a couple dozen people would get their walking papers.

    Farrell: "Do we really have the best record in the AL right now?!?"

    Ellsbury: "Holy sh*t, I did not know that.  I'm so focused on my individual stats because Scott Boras promised to make me very rich since this is my contract year."

    Uehara:   "私はレッドブルが必要!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    Farrell: "What did he say?"

    Uehara's Translator: "He said that he needs another Red Bull."
