  • Forum Post: Trading Deadline #1 Priority

    Posted 06/14/2013 07:06:17 EDT

    If Papelbon is available and the price is low (keeping in mind that for Philly this would be a salary dump) how could you not make that deal? The biggest decision to me is Jacoby Ellsbury. If there is more »

  • Forum Post: Where are the Cherington critics?

    Posted 08/15/2012 10:10:25 EDT

    There is no point in criticizing Cherington, one might as well blame the bat boy. Yes, the trades made on his watch has been awful, in particular giving away Lowrie and Reddick. But no one is dumb eno more »

  • Forum Post: Should Valentine be fired??

    Posted 08/04/2012 11:32:49 EDT

    Valentine is just one cog in a massive dysfunctional machine. Tonight was yet another demonstration that letting Papelbon leave was stupid. Crawford, Gonzalez and Lackey share honors for the worst con more »

  • Forum Post: GONZO finally cracks.300 and leads majors with RISP, what does it mean?

    Posted 08/02/2012 11:35:17 EDT

    Gonzalez is the second worst free agent signing in Red Sox history, he can thank Crawford for that. He is not getting paid $24 million per season to be be a slap singles hitter. more »

  • Forum Post: sell, sell, sell time to break it up

    Posted 07/25/2012 02:20:36 EDT

    Newsflash for those urging the Red Sox to "sell" players - No one is lining up to take the Red Sox poorly performing and overpaid mistakes off their hands. The only way to unload Crawford, Gonzalez, B more »

  • Forum Post: What needs to happen

    Posted 05/08/2012 11:50:02 EDT

    What needs to be done to fix this team: Fire Cherington. Remove Lucchino from any decision making. Hire a GM/VP with a proven track record of drafting talented young players. Recognize that it is goin more »

    Posted 04/12/2012 12:34:30 EDT

    I can't wait until Crawford is healthy and adds his .200 average to the lineup.

    How long until it is conceded that Gonzalez is a major bust? more »

  • Forum Post: Theo gets last laugh

    Posted 03/25/2012 05:40:57 EDT

    The Boy Blunder stuck this team with a lot of bad contracts and gutted the farm system.... but, a couple years of mediocrity in the Windy City and he and his pal Jed will be run out of town on a rail. more »

    Posted 02/06/2012 11:36:29 EST

    There was a halftime show? I changed channels for that half hour. Who the hell is this idiot M.I.A. whose pathetic effort to grab attention clearly worked? more »

  • Forum Post: Red Sox did not bid on Yu Darvish...

    Posted 12/17/2011 12:17:15 EST

    In Response to Re: Red Sox did not bid on Yu Darvish...: I believe that they didn' cost to sign this guy will probably exceed 100 mil - a figure the Sox will not even entertain.  You have to more »

    Posted 12/01/2011 03:42:56 EST

    A rare common sense post - BUT, most of it won't happen because - Papi is getting ZERO interest around the league. The Sox were fools to offer him aribitration. The $14 million he is likely to score u more »

  • Forum Post: I could be the next GM of the Red Sox. Folks here's your 2012 Boston Red Sox.

    Posted 10/06/2011 11:07:14 EDT

    I don't think any team will take Lackey even if the Sox paid his full contract. The guy now has the reputation as a clubhouse cancer. I'm not wild about keeping Scutaro, but I don't see that the Sox h more »

  • Forum Post: Francona???

    Posted 09/26/2011 10:49:58 EDT

    Yeah, Francoma is a lousy manager, but he is not the guy tossing meatballs and striking out. This team and these players are all Theo's guys. He was in love with Salty for years - even after he stunk more »

  • Forum Post: Lackey is useless

    Posted 09/04/2011 07:51:10 EDT

    The Sox should offer to allow the Cubs to have Theo as President if they agree to take Lackey and Crawford as part of the deal. more »

    In Response to Re: Crawford never got tagged: I refuse to give up on Crawford.  What's happened to him this season is nothing short of bizarre.  One of these days he's going to go to the ballpark and more »

  • Forum Post: Yankee Fade Begins

    Posted 07/05/2011 01:52:00 EDT

    This post is just plain dumb. Yeah, they are 7 -3 over the last ten games - when the Red Sox went 5-5. The Yankees lineup will continue to hammer lesser pitching, as well it should for $210 million. Y more »

  • Forum Post: Should Theo make a major move giving up highly touted prospects for a front of the rotation starting pitcher?

    Posted 07/05/2011 01:14:02 EDT

    Not sure what #1 or 2 pitcher you think is going to be available for prospects. If the Red Sox had any promising prospects they should have been brought up to replace the utterly useless McDonald and more »

  • Forum Post: Theo: Sox will be actively involved in trade discussions

    Posted 06/30/2011 10:04:29 EDT

    It is amusing that the Globe survey on Theo's biggest free agent bust does not include three fresh candidates - Jenks, Cameron and the leading candidate - Carl Crawford. I am sure Theo will give away more »

  • Forum Post: Lackey is an issue

    Posted 06/22/2011 07:18:03 EDT

    The Red Sox have officially moved into Yankee terroritory, where they can afford for the GM to make mistakes that added up are more than the payroll of many teams. Let us not forget JD Drew - one of T more »

  • Forum Post: Would you sign Papelbon for 3 years/$45 million?

    Posted 05/30/2011 11:40:08 EDT

    Each time Bard takes the mound Papelbon's price goes up. Jenks? LMAO - another stupid Theo signing. The Sox are going to have little choice but to pay Jonathan whatever the market offers. However I do more »

    Posted 05/23/2011 04:52:38 EDT

    This group isn't going to win anything. If you can, trade KG for draft picks or young players. Give Pierce a gold watch and thank you. Tank a few seasons, get picks, clear cap space. Plan for 2015. Th more »

  • Forum Post: Doc blew that game

    Posted 05/09/2011 11:34:42 EDT

    I was unaware that Doc was still playing. The game was blown by old tired Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen. It was blown by Danny Ainge bringing in the useless O'Neal twins and trading away Perkins for Gre more »

    Posted 05/08/2011 07:30:47 EDT

    Wow, a couple of wins against a terrible team and many are ready to crown the Flop Sox champs. Whoo Hoo, Gonzalez is now on pace to hit 20 home runs. Crawford to steal 25 bases, while hitting .210. Le more »
