    There are three sets of goat horns that this team should wear. 1) John Lackey, over paid under achiver - back in the 60's this guy would be sent to the minors. 2) Carl Crawford - ditto, another Theo m more »

    Back into the playoffs and an early exit. I'd be concerned about LA sneaking up and getting the WC, they are winning. more »

    IF they make it into the playoffs, after Beckett and Lester who is there? I have no faith in Bedard, Lackey, Miller, Wakefield or Weiland. I heard they are 2-58 in games they are behind after the 7th more »

    Gentlemen: I will root for the Rays to beat the Yankees, no way will I root for the Yankees! Sox need to take care of business, but rooting the the Yankees, never. more »

    Here's hoping that the trip to Tampa is not a death march for the rotation and bullpen! more »

    What a stunning collaspe, how do you blow that game last night? This is not how you gear up for playoff baseball.  I wish Wakefield would get that 200th win. more »

    Lackey's signing is up there with Lugo's, Rentaria's, $100M for DiceK, JD Drew (thanks for the Grand Slam in 2007) and the trading of Arroyo for Willie Mo. Having access to unlimited funds papers over more »

    Down in South Florida right now and was listening to the game on the local Yankee station (640AM), more fans listen to these Yankee games than ever listen to the Marlins(BIG mistake putting an NL team more »

    Don't want to relay on Lackey during the playoffs as what he did last night is just what the Sox will get from him. The inability to get the "big hit" is what really did them in more so than Lackey's more »

    Keep this kid in the rotation, his yearly salary lickely equals one Lackey inning! What a nice couple of games he has pitched. more »

    I don't think the Sox will go far in the playoffs (they have to get there first, however) because of the starting pitching. Crawford has been a high priced bust, Lackey has not produced, not impressed more »

    Not really impressed with Bedard, but in his defense how can you win with 3 hits and 2 runs? more »

    Follow the money, U of M is not the only "dirty" program, I'd believe most of the big schools operate the excat same way. more »

    J.D. Who? Can he stay on the DL or be a bench player for the rest of 2011? more »

  • Posted 08/03/2011 07:29:08 EDT

    I hope this guy can pitch and get the job done. I have no faith in John Lackey, more »

  • Posted 08/02/2011 08:02:36 EDT

    The thought of John lackey pitching in a playoff game scares me, this guy is Julio Lugo on the mound - over paid and under productive. more »

  • Posted 07/28/2011 04:37:28 EDT

    I'm starting to think that this guy is the second signing of Julio Lugo. Another Rays player who did his best against the Sox, making Theo believe he played like that every night! more »

  • Posted 07/20/2011 07:35:33 EDT

    SS has been a black hole since Nomar, Theo still does not have it right, there also needs to be more production from RF I think JD has already retired. The starting pitching will come around, except f more »

  • Posted 07/19/2011 07:43:31 EDT

    I think the three games each is fair. If your going to creat an issue, then take the punishment. This hurts the Sox more than the Orioles and is something they should think about. It's better to stay more »

  • Posted 07/15/2011 07:51:59 EDT

    Players are going to get fined and ejected for throwing at each other and fighting, the umps have to keep control of the game. I don't have any issues with the decision of MLB over this incident. Papi more »

    As long as Selig runs MLB nothing that makes sense will happen, both leagues should use the DH or not use it, the last league to win the WS should get home feild advantage for the next or the team wit more »

    This thread iabout Ellsbury is insane, the guy plays good baseball.  If anything is a farce it's the RF of the Sox.Money mouth more »

    You cannot protect people from everything, idiots will always find a way. One more such incident and basball is going to put up screening or higher rails. Risking your life and limb for a stupid baseb more »

    People must not even know the Marlins are a basball team surprised they were not voted the "least popular". In south Florida they can't give the tickets away. Go SOX more »
