    Will Dice-K man up?

    Cearly today's story line is Dice-K, and the game will go the way he goes.

    From my vantage point, he wants out, and will continue to send the Sox that massage. 

    "So, you want me to be more concerned about pitch count?  You want me to stop nibling at the corners and throw more stikes?  Well, here you go, morons.  Here you go.  You Americans are stupid.  If you had scouted me, you would have known who I was before I got here.  You spent $100,000,000 on Nolan Ryan?  I don't think so.  You spent $100,000,000 on Dice-K, but you really didn't want Dice-K.  Here's what you wanted.  Stupid Americans.  Bye, bye."

    "And funny now with Crawford.  You pay $20 mil a year for a guy who has never wanted to be a leadoff hitter and you make him a leadoff hitter, when you already have one of the best leadoff hitters in the game.  Or worse, you don't know what to do with him?  For $20 mil a year?  Stupid Americans.  Already, Crawford asking me about playing in Japan, and if I think people who run this team have any brains at all."

    I seriously think that Dice-K needs to relax and adjust to his life in Boston.

    Ben Affleck and Matt Damon need to hang out with Dice-K, grab a burger at Quincy Market and then take a drive to Cape Cod and grab some crabs and lobster. 

    Or Tom Brady and Garnett can tell Dice-K that they have his back.

    No other team has ever been as patient with any other player with no real results to show for it.  I want to believe the talent is there but it has been 5 years folks, how can we still be talking about an inability to adjust?  This guy has had every opurtunity in the world.

    Um...Dice-K is who is he is.  It's time we all realized he was a number 5 starter, and started treating him that way.

    As for the non-seniscal rant by the OP on Crawford, so what if Crawford doesn't want to hit leadoff.  If Francona tells Crawford that his job is to hit leadoff, then his job is to hit leadoff.  We all have things at our job that we don't like doing.  For me, it's putting cover sheets on my TPS reports.  I hate doing that, but I do it to avoid my eight bosses from coming to my desk to remind me to do it.

    Thanks Ice-Cream.  It's good to be back around again.  Not sure how often I'll be able to post, but I'm trying to make the rounds every so often.  Smile

    Wow. 

    Now we'll have to give him another three starts.

    It there a game tougher to figure then baseball? 

    It's a game of mystery.  Stats are fun, but game to game, they often don't mean very much. 

    However, I think Jed is the man.  Let me be the first to predict that he'll be the first player since Teddy Ballgame to hit 400.  

    However, he won't have anough plate appearances to qulify for the batting title.

    Because, God knows, it's more important to reward a guy who played hurt last year than a kid who just might be the best hitter on the club.  Silly?  Yeah, maybe, bit if you watch him closely and see the plate coverage he gets from both sides of the plate and realize that his eye-hand coordination and quickness are up there with Pedroia, and he's hitting great on a day when the supposed greatest hitter on the team is striking out three times, and he's Stanford smart, and Pujlos disciplined.

    Damn, it feels good to be excited about something!!!!!  

    I love this game.   Sometimes.  When I'm not hating it.  Like I was three days ago.

    Carry on, ladies.

    The board is full of manic-depressive fair weather fans like GoBoSo, SPC, and ExDodgerfan. When they come here and vent just don't let them bother you. They will do an about face and have completely different opinions every week. Their passion overrides their reasoning.

    There is a great deal of loyalty over riding reasoning, I concur.

    The best part of it is that it doesn't matter even one little bit what any of us think.  Except me.  Because I am the best fan the Sox have ever, ever, ever had. 

    I keep waiting for the fan mail, but none ever comes.


    A few thousand more posts maye.


    Then Theo will write, ten years retired, and say, "Hey, GoBoSo, you're the best.  You never confused the strike zone with the beer stand."

    Show a little love!



    Maybe Curt Young is using some of the 'magic' on Dice-K that he successfully used on the young arms out in Oakland. He and Dave Duncan for the Cards always seem to bring out the best in their respective pitching corps.

    Curt Young gets the love, maybe.  Too early to tell, but this is the most impressive run of consecutive great starts I can ever remember.  And the fact that Young let Beckett pitch 130 or so pitches the other night, that speaks volumes about him and the Sox' appropriate return to a more old school mentanilty, the same mentality, by the way, that Nolan Ryan has brought back to Texas.

    A great, hope-resorative week!!!!! 

    Now if we can just get some warm weather.

    Will GoBoSOx man up?

    :o)

    I here ya when you're talking about highs and lows.  Thank God,  I'm not on any mind altering drugs or else it might be worse.  (I suppose having a mind first might help ....)

    And I'm glad you're the best Sox fan ever.  I bow in homage.

    Just give the guys some kudos when they are down, instead of kicking them ....
