    Out of town fans think Sweet Caroline is a silly song to be played at Fenway while  holding hands.

    Valentine a puppet of Lucchino's ?    It's part of the condition that he got a managerial job to begin with.

    Can't do it.     Ortiz will sulk and whine saying he's not appreciated and cause disruption on the team.

  • Posted 02/29/2012 06:29:19 EST

    The Sox are at the limit for what a team can have as coaches.     If he wanted the job as pitching coach, he should have retired as a player and approached Lucchino when Curt Young was let go.

    Varitek's days as an active player were over with 2 years ago. If he wants to hang around any longer, give him a job as an advisor ot instructor for maybe $200,000 a year.

    The same thing applies as did the "flip play", Jeremy Giambi was not a fleet runner and the Sox have had few of those ever since. The team depends on the slugging percentage, not much on baserunning s more »

    Why not start Iglesias ?    A stong glove and a weak bat has been known all along.   Dave Magadan is supposedly the hitting coach.    Have him spend whatever time it takes to correct the battings flaw more »

    Anything but the silly holding hands and singing Sweet Caroline.    Something that will uplift the crowd. more »

    Matsuzaka has only himself to blame for nibbling at the plate and walking hitters.    He's a different pitcher with runners on base and his surgery won't correct it.    He has to learn to attack hitte more »

    Health is key particularly the hip. No question that Youkilis has slowed in the field. more »

    Posted 02/20/2012 06:34:32 EST

    Crawford won't take anything but light batting practice until at least mid March.   His wrist is only a month removed from surgery and he can't swing at full strength until May. more »

    The so-called experts at ESPN have made their predictions.    Same as last year.

    Still can't imagine how Buchholz will double his innings count of 82.2 in 2011. At least for the 1st few months of the season, Valentine will need to let him build up his arm strength until he shows t more »

    My rose colored glasses have seen the way of a dumpster.     With the holes in the lineup, they'll finish 3rd in the AL East.   If Selig decides to add another Wild Card team, the Sox will see an earl more »

    The Sox will need to have good health throughout the year and no serious injuries.   Several players will need to have career years and above all, the 3-4-5 starting pitchers will need to give at leas more »

    A retirement ceremony is probably planned in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of Ye Olde Ballpark. By right, John Henry should offer one free 8 ounce glass of beer with a commemorative engraved  more »

    Burnett will be a big fish in a small pond with Pittsburgh.     No facing a DH might help.  When Lackey is finished with his rehab from TJ surgery, maybe the Sox can peddle him to the National League. more »

    Forget the "C" on the uniform jersey, that's for hockey.    The same with "A" for Assistant Captain. A Captain leads by example and is likely to be a career member of the Sox and not go elsewhere when more »

    The major's best  ?    That was (supposedly) the 2011 team.     Nothing has been added to make the 2012 Sox any better unless the scrap heap types suddenly have career years and every player is injury more »

    Too many things have to go right in order for the 2012 Sox to be considered for the playoffs.    Suspect pitching, SS, right field and no depth coming from the farm system.    This is clearly a transi more »

    Both Varitek and Wakefield are like trying to get water out of a dry towel.    They are what they are when they where. Honor them for past contributions in a pre-game ceremony sometime during the seas more »
