    Tebows game are definitely not pretty but somehow he keeps winning. I don't get it at all but gotta give him a ton of credit. One thing I noticed- he doesn't hold onto the ball like he did earlier whe more »

    Disappointed as I liked Francona. Two World Series wins was not enough. This melt down was not Francona, it was the bozo who signed these other bozos that can't play.  Gandhi could've been the manager more »

    Beckett/Lester/Aceves/Bard/Bedard/Bucholtz   for pitching. Maybe a couple of the oddball pitchers. But they need 2 starting pitchers. You have to go into next season assuming Bucholtz will get hurt ag more »

    I've been watching the Red Sox since I was 8 during the epic '75 team. I'd have to go back to the 80's to find a team I disliked as much as this. Easily one of the worse pitching teams they've had in more »

    I wouldn't mind seeing Williams in a Pat uniform. I watched the documentary on ESPN about his life "Run Ricky Run". He's a bit out there at times but I have a better understanding of him. He's definit more »

    were Ty Law, Asante Samuel and Deion Branch

    This was a good game for the Patriots. Unlike the Browns game when they lost, they played sloppy here and still came out with a win. They needed a game like this to get motivated. It's easy for a team more »
