    Convincing people to put faith in flags is the Devil's greatest trick Bill.

    Nevertheless, welcome ... New Bill ...

    In the flames of destruction, OPPORTUNITY!

    Posted by SpacemanEephus[/QUOTE]Actually his greatest trick was convincing people he didn't exist. Placing faith in flags comes  close second though.

    No doubt Bill.  And, after close to 7000 posts myself, I though it would sort of indicate what my response would be to your stands on issues  Tongue Out.  Now, as to the type of person that you are, you are of the best sort.  I'd drink a sixer on the porch with you anythime my friend.

    Bill-806 seems to enjoy waving the ultra-conservative flag. It is not a popular stance among Republicans, look at what happened to Sarah Palin ( 8 percent of Republicans wanted her).

    Very true my friend.  that being said, there was nothing tongue-in-cheek in my posts.  I was serious about the Devil's greatest trick being getting people to put faith in flags (well, next to the whole convincing the world he didn't exist and also making cheese taste so great thing).  And i was also serious about drinking a six on the porch with ya.  Cheers.

    "Tongue in Cheek" = Insincerity, dishonesty, trolling. stirring the pot, playing Devil's advocate. playing contrarian, and overall pr-ick.

    Its all one trick.  see, the Devil first convinced the world he didn't exist.  This bought him enough time to eat so much of his own ungodly-delicious cheese that his physical form altered to the one we have come to know as Dick Cheney.  He then wrapped himself in the flag and convinced people to have faith in him.

    Re: With tears in my eyes, goodbye Tito and Theo

    The OP is about right.  No tears for me, but I agree they both had a great run.  September made Francona's departure inevitable even though it was primarily starting pitching that did the Sox in.  And Epstein is leaving because the Cubs are throwing a mountain of cash at him, not because Henry doesn't like him or want him. 

    Funny how things turn out.  Five months into this season, the Sox were having a great year and headed for 100 wins.  Even the constant boo birds like georom and bosox1941 had to be cautious about their constant complaints, usually directed at Francona. 

    Then the pitching collapsed, the guys started making more errors, and the hitting couldn't pick up the slack because Youk was out, CC was still mediocre, and Ortiz disappeared (1 dinger and 8 rbi's in September).  Ironically, I am all in favor of blaming it on the manager, who certainly seemed willing to accept the blame for not being able to turn this team around, to say nothing of controlling the clubhouse, etc. 

    But, as bill-806 says, Francona and Epstein did have a great run, and that includes this season up until around August 27 or so. 

    If the Sox had scraped together a couple of more wins in September and won the wild card slot, the playoffs almost certainly would have ended in the ALDS and the Sox would still have to figure out how to fix this team for next year.  Francona might still have left, and Epstein almost certainly would have because the Cubs owner is willing to pay a lot to get him.
