    In Response to Re: Tuesday Night Game Thread: Red Sox at Rangers:
    Providence Journal: "Bobby Valentine said he only expects to hit Crawford lower in the batting order against lefthanded pitchers, against whom the left fielder has tended to have less success. Crawford has four hits and a walk in 16 plate appearances against lefties so far this season since he returned to the major leagues. He faced lefties twice at Triple-A Pawtucket and five times at Double-A Portland during his rehab assignments. "I'm putting him in a place he was comfortable with last year," Valentine said. "He has all of about 15 at-bats against lefthanders this whole year. I talked to Carl about it, actually. It seemed to make sense to him. It makes sense to me. Rather than rush. When first asked for his thoughts on being dropped in the lineup Tuesday, he (Crawford) first said, "No thoughts," his voice somewhat terse. Asked a follow-up question about handling that spot in the batting order, however, he sounded more OK with the move. "I understand now," he said. "Last year was more like trying to prove to the manager and all that kind of stuff, just fighting against myself. This year I understand that, OK, I might be at the bottom sometimes, I might be at the top. I'm cool with it. I've come to grips that it might happen, so this year I know to stay within myself and just keep playing my game." it, we'll let it come to us." ...

    Did Francona make up this lineup?  Crawford batting 7th?  According to Crawford that is one of the reasons he was messed up last year.  Crawford didn't like batting in the 7-9 hole and wanted to be in the #2 hole.  Here we go again.  Crawford is going to completely fall apart like he did last year.  His psyche will be toast.

    Well, I see someone was offended by my Mushmouth references and got my post deleted.  Why don't you identify yourself?

    You realize you are being insane........Mushmouth is a character developed by Bill Cosby as part of the Fat Albert show.  You realize that Bill Cosby is black right?

    Also, this must mean that no one can refer to Albert Puljous or Matt Albers anymore as Phat Albert or Fat Albers

    Fair is Fair.............

    It reminds of when Deon Sanders tried to make it about RACE when Carlton Fisk told him to play the game right.  Ol Deon almost got a good ol fashion butt whopping....Playing the race card is absolutely shameful. 

    If you look at my history, I bash guys who are underperformers - has nothing to do w/ race...I bash Beckett and Drew (why didn't anyone call me a racist when I refered to Drew as NANCY DREW; another TV Character??)  and Lester and yes Crawford....I appraise Ortiz and Morales and I even supported Coco Crisp even though he wasn't a top performer in many people's eyes.....not to mention Stealy Dave Roberts........etc etc etc etc

    Go cry to Morris Deeds!!!!!!

    Bill Cosby created those characters in the pre-PC days, he also said that he was a bigot and their were only two of them and he didn't like the other one very much either!  You are not allowed to laugh out loud at that stuff any more, where have you been?

    You lost me re:  only 2 of them and not liking each other?

    But yes, Bill Cosby does not like White People.  He has made that quite clear. 

    So I guess it is OK for me to call White People racist names but I can't do that to Black People?  Got it. I wish someone here would tell me what the rules are!  LOL  What a joke.  You don't have a right to never be offended.  You do have a right to change the channel!

    Carl Crawford all but called out Tito for being pulled from a high spot in the order. When BV does it, now it's ok. What a hypocrite. Let's add that to CC's portfolio.
    1. can't throw
    2. can't field a routine hit to the outfield
    3. can't hit lefties
    4. can't hit for power or extra-bases (0 in 28 plate appearances)
    5. can't understand why he's getting paid 142 million dollars to bat 7th

    I didn't realize that CC was an African I always assumed he was an American.  But i can't remmeber hearing him talk, maybe it's his African Accent you are having trouble understanding...

    It seems like we are huge underdogs in this game. Kind of a weird feeling for a team with this much talent.
