    This Team STINKS!

         Sorry...but it looks like it's going to be a long season. Isn't this the same BS that we saw last year...with the team getting off to an horrendous start? The bullpen obviously is attrocious. The reason that Theo is no longer around is primarily because of two horrid free agent signings, John Lackey and Carl Crawford. Crawford especially will be a millstone around the Sox necks for years to come. 
      
         Thank God for the B's and Patriots.

    I agree with having the B's. But the Pats. Come on TexasPat they choked this year big time. It was all lined up perfectly for them. The easy run in the playoffs.  And they did not deliver on SB SUNDAY. The best news for the Sox current demise is the Yanks are in the same boat. Nice.

    Thankfully ballplayers have both the talent and persistence to play through their teen years and into young adulthood when those in this thread were busy figuring out where to buy playoff tickets, condoms, cheap cologne, lottery tickets and used books for college.

    I'll choose to respectfully decline lifting my leg to urinate on the Red Sox.

    Best wishes to y'alls in finding a front row seat at the sports bar.

    Don't drink and drive and don't let the door hit you on the way out.

    Oh yeah, and you're off the bandwagon. Take your t-shirts with y'alls...

    Let's see our closer gets injured in the last week of spring training and everyone's pretending like the plan all along was to have Aceves close. If it were not for the failings of Aceves & Melacon we likely would have taken 2 of 3. What we'll never know is "what if Bailey were not injured" perhaps the outcome of both games might have been different...FYI the Tigers are pretty good.
     
    So today as the Sox ready themselves for the next opponent on the schedule. The obvious question that begs to be asked is, how long can they go with the current tandem of Melancon and Aceves? Who are now 0'fer in save situtations. Roles that niether of them were intended to fill. Given the date, my guess is that they'll continue to run them out there. While looking for a longer term solution (teams aren't exactly lining up to make trades in the 1st week of April)...

    That said, I'm having trouble with your statement regarding Epstein becasue the fact of the matter is the reason he's no longer employed by the Red Sox has nothing to do with Lackey or Crawford. In fact if you take the time to research the reasons it's clear that he coveted Luccino position with the Sox and when Luccino agreed to another 4 year extension. Epstein then in the interest of career advancement, no longer saw himself as a career GM, looked to find a like position with another organization with a clear path to the CEO job. A position of authority with a clear path to ownership, which is ultimately what he wants.
     
    As for one or both being a "millstone" you forgot to add Matsusaka to the list because he and Lackey represent some 26M in payroll that is currently on the DL and like it or not it is due to them being on the DL that is at the heart of why we entered the season in search of pitching. neither of whom oh by the way would fix the bullpen...

    as for Crawford I will reserve judgement until he has a chance to get on the field...early returns haven't been great...but that doesn't mean that he can't or won't be the player we thought we signed.

    With the RS schedule over the next dozen games, it will not be a surprise if they end up at 5 and 10, and a big hole to begin the year again!

         LOL!!!! The Pats exceeded expectations by getting to the SB...and were beaten by a better team. But for some poor execution on the Tom Brady to Welker late fourth quarter pass, and an untimely ankle injury to Gronk, thinks could have been gone differently.

         Are you seriously going to argue that Lackey will transform himself into a dependable SP, and that Crawford will start to play like Carl Yastrzemski in LF?

         For $20mil. per season, that's exactly what Crawford should be doing. Insstead, the Sox can't even find a place to hit him in the line-up...finally settling for batting him seventh. SEVENTH!!!! Who else is paying a 7th place hitter $20mil. per year???

         He's the main reason that Theo is gone...and justifiably so. He's also the main reason why the Sox got practically no compensation for Epstein. Everybody knew that the Sox no longer wanted him.

    They should have won that game regardless of Gronk's injury. The offense stunk. Don't feed me the line about exceeding expectations, like that makes it all better they lost twice now to the Giants. Twice. Brady stunk. Opens game with safety. He heaves a hail marry to a coverred Hurt Gronk. And he blew the pass to Welker more than Welker dropped it. Enough about the Pats. Time for the C's and B's to make some noise. As for the Sox, I need more than a weekend away series against a strong team to push the panic button.

         You should save your harsh criticisms for a team that richly deserves criticism...the Boston Red Sox. Do you really expect this team to do anything this season?
