About Me: Became a huge Sox fan after moving to Portland, Maine in 1970 and following the trade of my boyhood idol, Tommy Harper to the Red Sox. Tears of heartbreak turned to tears of joy. Go Sox!

In response to crazy-world-of-troybrown's comment: Sox are only 6 games behind last Wildcard spot as of today. If they can cut it to 4 by All-Star break that will be great. Even by Trading deadline th more »

... could play 162 x 7 years and still wouldnt be close to earning that contract. the yankees / brian cashman are a joke. other names i have posted under: none [/QUOTE] If the Yankees are a joke, more »

Don't like to be out of it before the 2th of July. Then all we got till next spring is the Pats cause the Bruins and Celts got nothing [/QUOTE] That's usually the benefit of being a fan of all 4. Rol more »

Amp, I agree 100%. The time is actually past due on Farrell. I don't see any fire. I see mental lapses. I don't see team unity. Sox4ever [/QUOTE] Interesting. You give the "dump Farrell" movement more »

I'm not sure why, if an old thread was a good one, and is still relevant, one can't bring it back to life.

I don't see any fire. I see mental lapses.
I don't see team unity.

He'll be back next year.
That means we have to watch HanRam on defense for one more year!

Man o man this is frustrating!
7-0 already, and Betts gets robbed of a hit again!

The more I see ERod, the more I see him as being a big part of 2016 and beyond.

...I think Porcello needs to keep turning things around, too if we really have a chance this season. ...
Not today anyway!

Where's harness? I wonder what his views are on Leon taking over the team lead in CERA: 3.73 Leon 4.34 Hanigan 4.86 Swihart Or, how Betts is making a strong run at overtaking Holt in OPS. He's only more »

Glad we didn't pay even 75% of what the Yanks paid him.

Hanigan will catch Buch. Swihart should start the other 4 starters with a few more days off here and there. Swihart needs to build relationships with the Major League staff. He won't learn anything more »

I was hoping that Farrell would have gotten the ax by now. He's just not motivating and/or leading the team. But, unfortunately, I now realize that the front office will do nothing until after the s more »

Porcello for Ces made sense but now looks pretty bad mainly because we have had little offense from Papi and Nap. Miley, Masterson, Kelly and anyday now Clay going back to the DL wasn't going to keep more »

I never expected we'd have to go outside the organization to fill an OF slot. We started the year with 8 OF'ers: Betts HanRam Victorino Holt Castillo Nava Craig JBJ (We also used Pequero for 17 inning more »

In addition, the time might be right to move Vazquez, whose value is probably higher than Buchholz due to more control years. For a team looking for a good pitcher, and the catcher of the future, we s more »

Come on. Last place team. WOW! You think at 30, in his prime he'll get to 200 innings. Thats nothing to a good Pitcher. For the first time in his Career. Buch has had a few seasons with close to 200 more »

Once I see WAR I leave the Poster. No Offense. Useless stat. Marrero's play today saved the game, and nobody will see the play. But UZR/150 will capture that play and show up in Marrero's WAR numbe more »

Buch has been eratic, but much of that was injury related. Of course further injury is a concern, but I think Buch's updise potential will cause a GM to overpay his value with an offer the Sox will more »

Last year (April) , we were the oldest team in MLB at a 31.4 average. Now, we are the 2nd oldest at 29.8. Papi and Uehara really skew the numbers though, so we are not really as old as the average s more »
