    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Red Sox Clubhouse Culture...... : When do you have time to watch the other 10-15 MLB games every night that are on your MLB Extra Innings Package? I would think that the Cincinnati and Boston broadcasts would be enough to occupy your time. Do you record all of the other games? How many VRDs do you have in your house. You must be retired to have that much time. Please give us a ranking sometime of how boring all 30 MLB broadcast teams when you have a few extra minutes of time. Very few subscribers to the package watch every broadcast. Hats off to you however. When do you take a break to pee or eat the sub sandwich?

    I don't have any VRD's pike. You'll find those kinds of things among your counter culture/alternate free-lifestyle forums. You know, the kind your mental wonderings prove you seek out? I hope you've had all your shots.

    I like Remy and Orsillo and even if I did not, I wouldn't come here to join the masses that dislike every commentator, scribe, columnist, reporter, manager, coach, GM, owner, and Heidi. The forum just has too many old men who dislike everything about life from burning their toast in the morning to putting out their damn cat before bed at night. Give it a rest people we are tired of the grumbling. Just the other day Alibiike found a $20 bill on his front sidewalk and was in here bi-tching that is was wrinkled and dirty.

    I wish ESPN would bring back the Joe Morgan and Jon Miller tandem...I might even watch a D'backs vs. Padres tilt (for an inning perhaps) if they are doing the play-by-play...

    Isn't this the kind of post you rail against?

    About the "Clubhouse Culture."

    To some extent, I think it's overrated for baseball. There have been great teams in the past where players physically fought each other in the clubhouse yet still won. Remember the Oakland A's of the 1970s.

    If it's true that the players are selfish, OK, fine. As an individual, it doesn't help each of them to sck and not hit or pitch well. Even if they're out for themselves, when they're a the plate or pitching, they're not going to purposely hit poorly and pitch poorly because they don't like a teammate.

    The only way a "greedy" player gets that next big contract is to perform. Baseball is a team sport, but also an individual one, in which much of it is pitcher vs. batter. A batter doesn't have to worry about a ball-hogging teammate like in basketball for example, where a selfish player can hurt the one-the-field/court product.

    And I really don't think it's a chicken-and-the-egg deal in which you say, what comes first -- winning or clubhouse culture.

    Teams with crppy talent could have a great clubhouse culture, but if that great culture isn't going to help them win. As they continue to lose, that culture will take a hit. So a team with a talented team with lousy culture starts winning, all of a sudden the clubhouse culture is completely different.

    Bill Lee told me once that Reggie Smith threw him inside a trash can - he also said with a chuckle that they really hated one another.

    John Kruk has never struck me as a solid citizen, commentator, etc.  It's early in the season and anything can happen, but he has to say something interesting, so he jumps on the Red Sox because they are off to a slow start.  He of course totally ignores the fact that last year the Sox also got off to a lousy start--no doubt because of the lousy "clubhouse culture"--but came roaring back in May, June, July, and even August.  They folded in the September because the pitching collapsed.

    And that's the problem right now.  Beckett and Buchholz both stunk in their first starts.  The bullpen was horrible in all but the one win.

    Oh Dear Lord, NO.  Anything but more (Hall  of Famer) Joe Morgan time!!  I llike (and miss) Jon Miller, but I've had enough of Joe Morgan's self-agrandizing to last me the rest of my life!
