Especially when they make management squirm. Our owners get way too comfortable sometimes. I like having someone around who causes them a little discomfort and keeps them on their toes.

I hate to see him go. Especially to a division rival. But honestly, I can't really begrudge him for looking at it.

eyeofthetigre, Do your research. Of the second basemen in the hall of fame, Biggio compares very, very well. Let's look at Rod Carew for example. Yes, Carew has a much higher batting average, but Bigg more »

I agree. How many other teams are missing 3 All Pro players in key positions. Gronk, Wilfork, Mayo. Not to mention, Kelly, injuries on the O line.
Posted 12/17/2013 04:48:35 EST
Of Brady's 4 main receivers during the Super Bowl run, Givens, Branch, Patten, and Brown, only Givens was at least 6'0" tall. So why does he need tall receivers. What the Pats really need is a healthy more »

Boras is a sch muck. But, Drew had the third highest OPS among SSs with a qualifying number of at bats. Boras will get someone to pay through the nose for him.

I think the media is more fickle than the management. They let Iglesias go because they had Bogaerts behind him who they view as a more complete player. While Iglesias had a great run at the plate, yo more »
Comment on: Boras: Plenty of suitors for Ellsbury - Extra Bases - Red Sox blog
Posted 11/14/2013 12:16:14 EST
Like anything Boras says, there's 80% truth to his lies. I'm sure every team has inquired about Ellsbury and then all but 3 or 4 probably hung up laughing at Boras' asking price.

If Ells doesn't resign with the Sox it will be because Scott Boras conned some team into paying him 150+ million dollars. I'm debating Ells' talent. I'm just saying, we've seen this before. Right, Joh more »
