    In response to moonslav59's comment: ...these West Coast trips are typically sub .500 trips. I thought the same thing, but then I went to look. We did well in 2010 and 2011, but bad before then and af more »

    Given 45 years of watching the Yankees some how be in the thick of things at season's close, I expect them to do it again. It is always a personal celebration at my house when finally the Yankees are more »

    Iggy's bat for me is #1, followed by The BoSox leading the ALE at the AS Break...July is a tough road with our schedule though, I must say Ells power outage is not really a surprise, but definately a more »

    I left the board about a year ago due to work related issues and it was extremely contentious. In many cases posts were not even about baseball or our Sox, but about attacking another forum member. As more »

    After the Padre series, it is 10 games on the West Coast against Angels (3), M's (4) and A's (3), then after the break we open up at The Fens with Yanks (3), Rays (4), O's (3). For those of you who ha more »

    Predicting the Yankees will be in the cellar may come true sometime during this great season, however they will be in the thick of the race at crunch time in September. I just hope the Red Sox are in more »

    In response to Hfxsoxnut's comment:

    Why would you even raise such a question.  Francona is long gone and Farrell is doing a fine job.

    Hopefully we are working hard to sort out Middy's obvious funk at the plate. Sending him down may be too drastic, split time with Iggy, invest hours in the cage makes sense.

    Definately not Paps. Cost too high now and part of the "past". Blockbuster trade for a closer is not a good idea imo. I hope we can find an adequate solution from within our current roster. Give Mille more »

    My answer to the thread's question is; pretty much everyone through 2012. We all knew he has a ++ glove, his hitting in 13 is quite amazing and totally unexpected. I do think Management is handling hi more »

    Purely a salary dump. I approve though. We get zero in return. Many, many years ahead of lower division finishes. Apathy has set in. more »

    Give Youk 20 games if he can stay healthy playing in LF in order to set up a trade Youk for anything. Do not take Middy off him until the end of the season! more »

    Bailey was obviously the key to our trade, not Sweeney. Sweeney is coming back to earth and will never be much more that a very good 4th outfielder. Bailey?....if his injury history continues, and Red more »

    Yes, it does in fact look as though the Boston Media has once again blown a non-issue WAY out of proportion, getting "us", including me, to take the bait. more »

    I hope he comes back soon, when at 100%, then rakes the remainder of 12 and all of 13. Then I hope he goes to a team and a city where he is appreciated. Meanwhile BC will replace him in centerfield wi more »
