    OK; now I don't know what to think; in hindsight, it was a mistake. However, I don't recall the announcers during the Mauer AB questioning the strategy.

    Actually I just checked and a few of the Sox teams from 1981 - 1985 were better than this team.

    And apparently bench players in the early 1980s were still getting paid $34,000 a year.

    It's 3.8 going into this game, and since the rough start it's been terrific.Were you complaining when he shut down the Yanks?

    I recall posters calling for Francona's head too. You can't win.

    This crowd would find fault with Joe McCarthy or Casey Stengel (in their managerial prime)

    Awful in the short term, yes. But now we are in last place again with a sub .500 record. If we can manage to finish the season that way then there is no way major changes will not be made.

    What about Earl Weaver, LaRussa or Scioscia? Same difference.

    You said that was a bad example, so I mentioned those other HOF caliber MGRs, and Francona is arguably at that level.

    Re: Saturday Night Game thread:Twins at Red Sox

    And you guys thought Friday Night's game was bad.

    I told you, things will get worse, much worse.  Soon you will forget about the horror that was this game because we still haven't hit rock bottom yet.

    Get ready.  Hold on tight.  Relying on proven losers to carry your team hoping that maybe they can all of a sudden pitch well is well, wreckess suicide.  The roosters have come home........

    60-75 Since September 1, 2011 and not only have improvements not been made nor real changes been made either but we have actually downgraded the team at a few positions.

    And just to throw salt into a wound - compare and contrast Youkilis' AB's to Middlebrooks and well, you have a very nice summary of what the offense has transformed into it........

    Good to see that you are Cajun but looks like the troops are getting mighty thin here. Yankee troll has ONE post in the early innings and then has 33% of the posts after the game goes south. In my book that's a TROLL. Doesn't anyone here know "backhanded" remarks when they see one? Celtic fans took about one hour to realize it......... So I guess the C's fans are a lot smarter than Sox fans!  LOL
