[QUOTE]i was wrong in 2009??? LOLOLOL i was totally right about the playoffs (and you my friend were wrong about our chances)...you are referring to the Sox before they traded for VMART when they stumbling...which made all the difference (it allowed us to get swept in three games)....yea ok harness - you want to hold me to that - let's talk about your support for Cameron and your belief that Ells was better off in right field....will you own up to that? LOL as a matter of fact lets put up my predictions to yours regarding wakefield, the playoffs, important games, the rotation....you pick it...what you will find is that not only do i have the huevos to make a prediction, but im usually right..actually closer to 100% - you on the other hand are good at cutting at pasting and reacting to other people's posts with your usual mixture of meaningless minutia and personal pettiness.... I'm telling you that Tito has mailed it in for the season....are you going to comment on that? I told you that our manager doesnt have the intestinal fortitude to go for the division championship because that would require hard choices and he's a soft guy...so soft in fact that apparently our players can even get dressed without hurting themselves....I'm telling you that Wakefield will be in the playoff roster because even though he stinks, our manager is weak and wont tell veterans the cold hard truth (like to go retire). i ALSO MADE A PREDICTION (AN EASY ONE MIND YOU) that TampA will not pass us - The question for you an all the other bootlicking apologists is why are you so willing to concede the division to the Yanks and not admit that our manager once again blew it? Another All-star break lead wasted...hmmm see a pattern? You guys always accuse Softy of putting his opinions before the team but you are just as bad. You would rather cover up for your manager that you defend to save face because you wont' admit that youre wrong about him...he is a bad field manager who cant manage a bullpen, cant condition his players properly, and most sadly, cant motivate his players to play consistent, dominate baseball (the way their payroll and talent says they should be playing) I started this thread before the game and cited the starting lineup as proof...was i wrong
? did i get lucky again? I guess i just gave up on them (of course what does that say about our manager who has already admitted that winning the division is just not the important)????

Yes, you were wrong. Tito took two players with poor numbers against opposing starter out in favor of ones with better numbers. That's a tough one, eh?
In 2009 you said there was a better chance of a mid-air collision between the Rangers and the Rays than Boston making
the playoffs. You said this when they were in fact leading
in the WC race - in August
So spare me your doom/gloom predictions. You were wrong in 2009 in that the team did
make the post season, so anything 'predicted' afterwards is not relevant.
Spineless fans quit. To then claim Tito
is completely hypercritical of you.
In 2009, I said they lost any advantage they had when Tito chose VMART to catch the staff. He should have manned first over Lowell, with Tek catching Beckett/Lester.
Last year Cameron was hurt. So was Jake. Their seasons were both lost.
This year you actually had them winning 100 games. UR optimism has turned completely sour as you can't handle or admit to coming up short. Weak managers don't win rings. They don't survive in Boston's fanatical landscape.
Is Tito to blame for the pitching set-backs? You call Josh's ankle sprain phony, with no conclusive knowledge of the situation. That tells me all I need to know. Your
season win projections fell short, so you blame the manager.
Show me a more successful Boston manager in UR lifetime. Or better yet, become a NY Mets fan. Then you'll see how not
to run an organization.
You were a decent poster this year while you had some faith.
But you reverted back to jelly without it. That
was an easy call.
