    I may be behind the curve with some of the roster moves. I thought those guys were still on the team.

    Yep!  I was wrong.  Ace signed a one year deal with the Sox, avoiding arb. 

    Dice-K though, is GONE!  :)  Thank God!  The Mets are going to take a look - see at him.

    I only wish the Yankees would pick him up!  :)

    Beckett ended up with an unspectacular postseason ERA with the Red Sox of 3.88. Decent, but not great. He did not do well against the Yankees, as others have pointed out, and he was too inconsistent to be considered the ace many people thought we were getting from the Marlins...IMO. In addition, he was stubborn and resistant to constructive criticism from his coaches and carried himself with a visible disdain for the fans. I am not sorry to see him gone.



    My feeling is that if the Red Sox don't win it all, then the next best thing is having the Yankees not win it all.  Anyone but the Yankees.  After the devastating loss to them in the 2003 ALCS, I don't think I would have emotionally survived that offseason if they Yankees had won the WS.  For that, and the 2007 WS, Beckett will always be all right in my book.

    Being realistic is not mutually exclusive of"Rooting for" something unrealistic.

    p.s.   To be clear, I don't think Lackey is capable of double digit wins, but I'm ROOTING FOR 15.  What the heck!

    You do know that 15 is double digit right?

     




    I hate to pick on a fellow dog, BUT....  I'll slow down so even a devildog can understand.

     

    I think Lackey will blow!  I will still root for him to win 15.  Why not?  I can't seem to get the Red Sox to dump him for a sack of balls, so I might as well cheer for him to do the impossible.

    :)

    Many struggle with the juxtaposition....  What would be a simple concept for some, blows some minds.  Stiffy for example.......

    When stiffy hears me rail against homophobia, he simply can't even comprehend a conservative Republican railing against such a thing.  It blows his little mind.  :)

    Exactly, and people assume that because I do not think we have much of a chance this year, I am not enjoying and will not enjoy watching and talking baseball this year.

    True, watching a winner is more fun, but baseball is baseball-- the best sport in the world!
