    Prepare to enjoy watching the Red Sox behind as a seasonal ritual

    I am not a fan of the trade, if it comes through.

    I will be glad to be wrong.  I know the tream has been 66-86 since a certain time last season, but ...

    I do recognize CC never panned out.  A great personal disappointment to me.  I know Josh has had a hard season.   

    A-Gon being gone will be hard to take ....

    I just have a really bad fealing.

    For once ... I am really negative.

    Woah hoarsie. I love AGon but come on man grab a hold of that positive stuff!  No Crawford, no Beckett!! That is stuff only dreams are made of.

    Re: Prepare to enjoy watching the Red Sox behind as a seasonal ritual

    I hope they do not sign Hamilton (I know he is awesome) because of his personal issues and that "our" media would destroy him the first minute he fell off the wagon.

    I hope they do not extend Elles until after 2013 when he can show us he is more 2011 Elles than 2010 or 2012.

    I hope they do not sign an average free-agent pitcher for top dollar because it is the best "available" pitcher on the market.

    It will be nearly impossible to top AGon's numbers so I hope the team and fans are prepared to admit just how valuable he has been to us ... it will be evident.

    Ortiz might just be brought back now, and I am okay with this if it were a one year deal. We both know Ortiz won't be happy with that. 

    Lackey will be given another shot to fill the #3 or #4 role in the rotation. 

    We must bring in a pitcher who can lead the staff by example and hopefully help Lester be the #2 or #3 pitcher that he should be, that he must be.

    Let's hope this trade goes through and we see the "kiddie corps" Lav, Iggy, and whomever else we have play some MLB all.... just like the good ol' days.

    Yup, '41 ... that's part of it.   Especially if the team eats a lot of those contracts ... it hamstrings things

    Good post SY. I was starting to believe I was the only one not happy about this trade tonight.

    I like Hamilton but I agree 100%. 


    I hope they do not extend Elles until after 2013 when he can show us he is more 2011 Elles than 2010 or 2012.
     
    And with Jackie Bradley seeming such a surfe thing  - even though we all know there is no such thing ....  But I am excited about him...

    I hope they do not sign an average free-agent pitcher for top dollar because it is the best "available" pitcher on the market.
     
    I think Henry is through taking those chances.

    It will be nearly impossible to top AGon's numbers so I hope the team and fans are prepared to admit just how valuable he has been to us ... it will be evident.
     
    My biggest concern, really.

    Ortiz might just be brought back now, and I am okay with this if it were a one year deal. We both know Ortiz won't be happy with that. 

    I love Big Papi, but his leg issues don't merit more than a year to year.

    Lackey will be given another shot to fill the #3 or #4 role in the rotation.  We must bring in a pitcher who can lead the staff by example and hopefully help Lester be the #2 or #3 pitcher that he should be, that he must be.

    Lackey may actually pitch better, his ego stroked by Beckett no longer  being here.

    hope this trade goes through and we see the "kiddie corps" Lav, Iggy, and whomever else we have play some MLB all.... just like the good ol' days.


    Entitlement ends here, friend.  Now we earn stripes again.

    Question is ... did we improve it ... or just weaken the offense as well as give up defense?

    I hope you are right, Pumpsie.

    At least we got top pitching prospects ... not a PTBNL

    Problem is that kiddie corps dont fill up the stands unless they are exceptional like mike trout and tromble.... we have nothing that can come close to those types of kids... people want to see stars...

    CA_ the team is not going to the play-offs. They will play the youth now, rather than wait for April when they hope the winds of change have brought in a new attitude, a winning attitude.

    It would be criminal to make such moves and not play the kids, even the ones that might be showcased for trades this winter.

    Baldy, it's a little like hearing that Steve Spurrier or Urban Meyer stepped away from the Gators.

    Things won't be the same.

    We'll still love em. But it is not the same ...

    As you said once before, at least, we may disagree (or agree) but we do share in a common love of the Sox.

    It is time to call it a night!  G night indeed.

    You may just be right but Boston fans will not support or be behind losing teams...

    Not true... we are not about to be perennial losers. Posters/fans that think we have to win every year are the ones that make knee-jerk reactions. 

    I am sensible. 

    We would still have in 2013 without any addition a competitive team, and obviosuly the FO will continue to make some improvments (on paper).

    Right now (AGon aside) the team is making the moves I called for last winter. Feels okay to me.

    IN a perfect world, these guys would end up being a part of the core of a new group like those that helped the Highlanders with their 90's run with Joe Torre ...

    Add in Lavarnway, Middlebrooks, Pedey, of course, Doubront, Lester ..... some others 

    it isn't totally bleak ...

    I agree, the team is ready to be a perennial middle of the road, non playoff type, non-contender. Like this year.
