Forum Post: Boras discusses Ellsbury and Red Sox extension
Posted 08/30/2012 04:11:46 EDT
There is NO chance the Sox will be able to sign him this offseason. While his stock is somewhat high, its not as high as it could have been if he played more of the season. Of course his stock could l more »

I did find the "didnt have a babysitter in the morning to attend a funeral but had no problem getting one in the evening to attend Beckett's event" a bit strange. These guys make millions, probably ha more »
Forum Post: Globe Forum put on Waivers, New Layout Sucks
Posted 08/30/2012 03:48:29 EDT
Apparently they were placed on waivers and claimed by an unknown company and then pulled back. We will now just have to wait to see who this "mystery company" is (and no, its not the President, Romney more »
Forum Post: Felix Doubront....he is really claimed by someone
Posted 08/30/2012 03:41:20 EDT
Heck, if I were a GM, ALL of my players would be placed on waivers. Why not test the waters and see what is out there? If the Sox didnt put Gonzalez on waivers, they never would have been able to work more »
Forum Post: Ciriaco Calls Out Peter Abraham
Posted 08/30/2012 03:35:18 EDT
I find it hard to believe that Beckett was the only problem in that clubhouse. For one, I feel Lackey was an equal part as Beckett. Was not Lester part of this fiasco? Beckett is already pathing a pat more »

Posted 08/30/2012 03:30:07 EDT
I actually like the "making him a 1B" idea bobbysu mentioned (if they are going to go 2 at more than 10 per season). He has not made it through a complete season in the last few years so if you take t more »
Forum Post: Don't Take it Out on Zach
Posted 08/30/2012 03:22:03 EDT
It was basically a talent evaluation, kind of like you see in spring training. If this was a meaningful game for the Sox, he wouldnt have lasted pass the first inning. You bring this kid up here to sh more »

I actually like Pete's posts and his Tweets are also spot-on. Its actually nice to see a reporter who is not concerned with whether or not the players like him. Sure, it may make it harder to get inte more »

Im not sure if this was actually a discussion or a grammar lesson but I'll bite and no, I do not have the obligatory 5000 posts so if its mandatory, I fail. It will be quite alarming if they even spen more »
Forum Post: dodgers awarded claim on Gonzalez
Posted 08/24/2012 04:20:30 EDT
Heck, if I was Gonzalez, I would personally offer to pay half of my own salary to get out of Boston and the other side is that Boston fans should be willing to pay the other half to see him go. He is more »

I have to admit, the way this season has steadily gone down the tubes and the realization that we may have "purchased" too many problem-childs has me at a loss for words. While I still proudly walk ar more »
Forum Post: It's the pitching
Posted 08/17/2012 01:46:26 EDT
While yes, I would agree that the pitching sucks this year, the reason for the losses is due to the lack of hitting in times of bad pitching. Have you noticed that when the Sox score a lot of runs, th more »
Forum Post: Does this weekend's Red Sox-Yankee series matter, and what will the result be?
Posted 08/17/2012 01:43:56 EDT
Back to the question of the post, I personally do not feel it matters much other than the head-to-head stats. If Boston sweeps, they gain 3 games on the Yankees, which is not really going to put a den more »

Heck, Beckett has been sucking for the past two years and they continue to run him out there on the field. I imagine Beckett would still have his issues even while playing in Pawtucket. I wouldnt shut more »
Forum Post: Is Crawford still a bust?
Posted 08/17/2012 01:20:47 EDT
Yes. Playing well for a few games does not make-up for last year or prior to these last few weeks. As far as giving him time in his 7 year contract, usually a players abilities will decline over the y more »
Forum Post: Another stellar trade by the Blunder Boy!
Posted 08/17/2012 01:17:08 EDT
Its simple They placed him on waivers. The Mets claimed him. They had a short time to work out a trade or the Sox could have pulled him back. Obviously there was something or someone (Beato) who made more »

Posted 08/16/2012 04:32:44 EDT
I think sitting Aviles is actually a good move. He has been killing us lately. Not just his lack of hitting, but lack of hitting in key situations of the last few games. I guess Ellsubury at DH is the more »

I would like to see them bring-up Laroche at 3B. He has been hitting, is a right-handed bat, and obviously has MLB experience. Ciriaco could play short instead of using him as a DH, OF,....... Aviles more »

The Indians probably "tipped-off" the US Embassy in the DR due to Carmon's poor performance and high price tag. Maybe if the Sox used a little bit of money to launch an investigation of their own, the more »
