    I'm in Canada, so I've seen a lot of Blue Jay games this year. Farrell seems like a non-factor. Based on what he's said last year and this year, I think he wants to go back to Boston - he never says h more »

  • Forum Post: Papelbon

    Posted 09/03/2012 04:34:52 EDT

    I don't know if letting Papelbon go itself was a mistake. It was how they went about replacing him. Papelbon can go because Bard seems to move from the set up man to the closer role. So Papelbon's gon more »

    In response to Hfxsoxnut's comment: [QUOTE] In response to pumpsie-green's comment: Valentine did have some success with the Mets. He is a major league caliber manager with a lot of managing years und more »

    They might not be going to Seattle to fire Bobby....but if they're going to have a chat about the teams problems and struggles and what could be done about it....firing Bobby might come up as a possib more »

    I don't really follow what the team philosophy is. It seems like guys who succeed in Boston get lowballed because someone decided they were worth x amount of money for y number of years and if they wo more »

    Somewhat related...but how does everyone feel about the second wild card system? I'm torn. I do like that it keeps more teams in it and right now there's a lot of good teams who have a chance to make more »

    Their two biggest needs right now are a Manny and a Pedro - a hitter you can depend on to put up great numbers ever year, and a pitcher who's going to be a Cy Young candidate every year. I like Buchho more »

    I don't think they have to avoid long term, big money deals all together, just be smart about who they're giving them to. Manny made around $20 million a year, didn't he? Schilling wasn't cheap, and h more »

    I think Bobby's done, but I don't expect it to happen during the season, and I expect it to be announced as more of a mutual thing. Dumping last year on Tito then hiring Bobby to solve the problems Ti more »

    In response to TrotterNixon's comment: Nomar made a big mistake, which I'm sure he regrets. He seems to be a good guy, so I hold no grudge against him. He's not a HOF'er, though. As for Punto, I agree more »

  • Posted 09/02/2012 02:53:13 EDT

    It still bothers me they gave Nick Punto #5. I understand why they won't retire Nomar's number, but come on, let's be a bit selective about who wears it. Whether it's officially retired or not I'd lik more »

    I'm a bit concerned that we've been hearing for a couple of years now how great this guy is going to be.....and now the story on him is that he'll be amazing defensively and should save more runs in t more »

    I think it says a lot about the job Ben has been doing when he's best trade was one where he was openly giving away star (or supposed to be star) players just to be rid of them and their salary. Any o more »

  • Posted 09/01/2012 10:15:05 EDT

    They won in 2004, with a group of star players mixed with castoffs. They won in 2007 with mostly the same star players mixed with youth. I think they need to start with the established, dependable sta more »

    Wait, is Cook coming back next year a possibilitiy? I didn't think it was even a discussion. He's horrible. I figured since the team is going to be terrible they might as well let a pitcher suited for more »

  • Posted 09/01/2012 12:18:59 EDT

    Are they really that bad? I know everyone looked at the salary dump as them giving up a lot of great players, but Gonzalez was the only good, productive player they're without now. Beckett was terribl more »

  • Posted 09/01/2012 12:03:33 EDT


    Only an idiot would trade a player who's growing his hair out. He's not going to make an attention drawing move like that unless he knows he can back it up on the field.

    Speaking of numbers...I know Nomar's would never be retired for various reasons....but can they be a bit more selective about who they give it to? I'd like to wear my home #5 jersey without people thi more »

    Today is what's so maddening when it comes to Dice-K. The guy can be brilliant at times. He's just so unreliable. Still, if the money is right I'd take him back next year. He's better than Cook, and i more »

    It's cute how they try to make Punto feel included. But seriously, nobody in Boston cares he's gone and nobody in LA cares he's there. more »

    The thing with Lackey is that even if he bounces back next year he's still a jackas.s.

    They've got nothing from Crawford in two years and Beckett was horrible this year. Realistically the only way they'll be worse next year is if they can't replace Gonzalez's contributions. Not to compa more »

  • Posted 08/25/2012 06:38:28 EDT

    I'm happy they're being proactive. Things aren't working out and as long as they had those contracts they didn't have a lot of wiggle room to improve things. They could've sat back, kept everyone, and more »

    Could he, and the team, just accept that long relief is his thing and leave it at that? more »

  • Posted 08/25/2012 06:22:15 EDT

    I'd love to blame Theo, but it's so hard to tell who's really in control and how many of the moves he made were his moves, LL's moves, or a combination of both. He was just all over the place. One min more »
