    Beckett had his usual sparkling outing...held the Indians to 7 runs in 2 1/3 innings.

    Re: Thursday's Game Thread: Indians at Red Sox

    In an exhaustive chronicle of the Red Sox's collapse, the Boston Globe portrays a dysfunctional organization at several levels, from upper management coddling disgruntled players by offering them yacht trips and headphones, to a manager marginalized by personal problems and outsized egos, to players described as the "least dedicated group" in Francona's eight-year tenure.


    The Globe story -- based on numerous interviews with individuals familiar with the Red Sox organization, many requesting anonymity for fear of reprisal -- indicates a clubhouse that was fractured by varying levels of effort and commitment:

    For every player committed to the team's conditioning program, there was a slacker. For every Sox regular who rose early on the road to take optional batting practice, there were others who never bothered. For every player who dedicated himself to the quest for a championship, there were too many distracted by petty personal issues.

    This atmosphere seemingly was enabled by upper management; Francona, ultimately, was powerless to reverse it.


    This is an account of last years collapse.  The players complained about the schedule so one of the owners took the players for a cruise on his yacht and gave them presents.  This is a spoiled bunch of guys.

    They make millions yet complained about a double header.  They should all grow a spine, man up and stop whining.

    Maybe he needs another $68 Million extension to motivate him

    I really do not think Theo could have ever really been a Red Sox fan

    Re: Thursday's Game Thread: Indians at Red Sox

    My daughter had a music concert tonight at her school and I just turned it on. Geez, I hope Josh had a better golf game than the way he pitched tonight. With the way this team is playing I am not watching them like I use to be glued to the TV. I am spending more time with my daughters. If it keeps up as bad as its going I am going to cancel the FiOS for the rest of the summer and save myself a few bucks that way. This team is not worth it and what they did in the offseason really perturbed me going into the season. The fans are frustrated and are calling for trading people which is rediculous at this point. If it keeps up as bad as I think its going to be, some of these underachievers will be available at the trade deadline. Hopefully we can get another teams high prospects or their lungs for these guys.

    In response to "Re: Thursday's Game Thread: Indians at Red Sox": [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Thursday's Game Thread: Indians at Red Sox : Maybe he should be traded. But does it look like that's going to happen anytime soon? You're complaining about our starting pitchers yet you want us to trade away a starter? Do you honestly think you will get a better pitcher than Beckett by trading beckett? How can you say anything about a bad attitude when all your posts sound like you have a grudge on this team. Posted by zack5042[/QUOTE] I want them to win but most of all I want to see them try and care. I don't think Beckett tries or cares. That bothers me. Anybody who skips a start because of a sore lat and then plays golf does't care.

    Maybe the Yanks had Theo on their payroll...that would at least explain some of those moves he made.

    I really don't think he asked for the game off. He told BV he was a little sore so BV gave him the game off because Aaron needed a shot.

    You always get a pass for lack of talent

    You never get a pass for lack or heart or for making mental errors

    Nice try.  However, I do believe that some of the agents were giving Theo kickbacks.  Only time will tell if such a scanal is unveiled but you remember you heard it hear first.  The contracts Theo handed out were just too insane to be real.  Theo had to have been directly benefiting.

    We ARE the weaker teams now.  Teams like the O's and A's and uh Royals EXPECT to beat us when they come to Fenway.  Anything less than 2 out of 3 for them is an embarassment..........Tables, Turned.......Thanks, Theo!

    I just knew this year was going to be a total Cluster ***k after the complete meltdown last year and the lack of player house cleaning over the off season.
    Based on that I didn't renew my DirecTV baseball package this year.....Cha Ching.
