    I think most true baseball fans would have always said, minus 2003/2007 Josh Beckett has been WAY too inconsistent to be called an ACE. Lester's inability to get late into games consistantly makes it hard to give him the title. No one else on the staff comes to close to Ace quality. A LOT of years left with Beckett and Lackey in the rotation.....yikes.

    They have all been awarded huge contracts.

    68 million

    40 million

    30 million

    83 million

    52 million

    They also all have WS Rings already. 

    They are like the 64 year old dude I used to work w. - he turned into a 9 to 5'er, didn't volunteer for any extra work, and reminded us on a daily basis that "he doesn't need to work anymore, and the he is in 'pre-retirement' ".

    Refer to Tom's thread regarding Lester and Beckett. These two guys are just as much to blame as Tito.

    Believe me, if I could blame Francona I would.

    The players he backed up relentlessly are going to him fired.

    I think its ok to back players....but I also think its ok to say when enough is enough and its time to make a change. Lackey has struggled all year, a AAA pitcher could put up better numbers, same with Wake. All they do is tax the bullpen. Thats on Francona. Not saying he should get fired, just that he needs to be able to put his relationship with players aside and do whats best for the team.

    A AAA pitcher?  Do you mean like Weiland?

    Because Weiland is all we got in the minors pitching wise right now......

    Or do you mean the AAA pitcher that Theo is trying to make a deal for this week to make one start?

    Good point, if there isnt a suitable stop gap AAA SP then thats on Theo. But I think Weilland could have slipped into long relief and Aceves could have gotten a few of Lackeys turns.

    Weilland was a closer in college and seemed to cruise throught he first time in the order in most of his starts.

    And Casey Kelley is w/ the Padres while Youkilis now has to move to DH which forces Ortiz out of town.....I guess love is blind:  Theo was so much in love w/ Gonzalez he was blind to the longterm ramifications of trading for him......

    Have to agree. Trade or FA, Theo seems to pay/give to much for players he falls in love with.
