    Posted 09/08/2011 07:18:02 EDT

    What a stunning collaspe, how do you blow that game last night? This is not how you gear up for playoff baseball.  I wish Wakefield would get that 200th win.

    This thread iabout Ellsbury is insane, the guy plays good baseball.  If anything is a farce it's the RF of the Sox.Money mouth

    Posted 06/28/2011 07:50:48 EDT

    John Lackey - this is the weak link in the rotation, don't think management will send a guy making that kind of money to the bull pen.  Likely keep running him out there hoping he can work his way out more »

  • Forum Post: Worst loss of the year?

    Posted 05/06/2011 07:20:08 EDT

    I've come around to the opinion that Lacky was not a cost very good nor cost effective signing, $17M for these numbers over 2 years?  This guy performs like Lugo, only on the mond.Yell    more »

  • Forum Post: Tony Lee @ NESN: Lowrie Not The Starting SS

    Posted 04/20/2011 07:58:34 EDT

    I don't care who the starting SS is, that is not the issue of this team.  The Sox are painful to watch and don't jell as a team.  They play like the Clevelnad Indians or Kansas City Royals usually do more »

  • Forum Post: Boras: Manny Should Be Signed By Thanksgiving

    Posted 02/02/2009 03:24:54 EST

    Once this guy signs his long term agreement watch him revert to laying down or playing when he feels like it. I never saw him run so fast as he did going to first on an infield hit during the playoffs more »

  • Forum Post: Rays negativity

    Posted 10/28/2008 07:11:32 EDT

    The Ray's, who cares about them, not even their 2,500 or so fans. It's like being a Marlin's fan there are only about 2,500 of them too. My sister lives in philly and as a previous poster said it's an more »

  • Forum Post: What is a fastball?

    Posted 10/23/2008 03:46:44 EDT

    I recall being in the left field seats at Fenway a few years ago when the Tigers had their great year. They were beating the Sox by a run in a late inning game and brought Zaymaya (don't know if spelt more »

  • Forum Post: What went wrong with the Sox

    Posted 10/23/2008 03:34:20 EDT

    For some reason Manny was a cancer on this team, don't understand why as he had $20M reasons not to be a disruption. Sox lost because they were outscored by Tampa and could not produce a hit when runn more »

  • Forum Post: How about Hanley comes back?

    Posted 10/22/2008 03:56:13 EDT

    Rameirez has a very good bat but as an everyday SS he'll make Lugo look like a Gold Glove condidate. Not intrested in getting him. We need a catcher who can hit with men on base. more »

  • Forum Post: The Rays deserved it

    Posted 10/21/2008 03:58:51 EDT

    Was in a bar in Ft. Lauderdale on the Inter-Costal watching one of the games and there were two guys with Rays jerseys on (never saw anyone wear one before) so i went over and asked if they were from more »

  • Forum Post: Give Tampa credit?!?!

    Posted 10/15/2008 04:13:52 EDT

    You cannot fight Karma and this 2008 Rays team is the 2003 Marlins. Seriously, Tampa has alwasy had the reputation of being difficult to deal with in terms of trades, always asking way too much for an more »

  • Forum Post: No more Beckett

    Posted 10/13/2008 04:32:26 EDT

    For some reason 2008 is like 2006 for Beckett, tehing to throw the fastball by these AL hitters. That worked in the NL but not in the AL. I think this is a physical issue so he's trying to gut it out more »

  • Forum Post: The fall of the great Yankee dynasty...

    Posted 09/26/2008 03:47:16 EDT

    It's really nice to see the Sox being competitive year after year now, I can remember when no one went to the games and the Sox were terrible to watch. What makes this even sweeter is that the Yankees more »

  • Forum Post: Rays vs Sox schedule

    Posted 09/22/2008 06:21:53 EDT

    Lack of hitting with men in scoring position. I can recall two or three games we should have won against Tampa we let get away, which may cost the division. more »

  • Forum Post: Who will pay Manny in 2009

    Posted 09/18/2008 07:39:04 EDT

    The only questions is, who can afford to sign him? Can he produce these numbers for the next four years, he'll 40 at the end of the contract. I think only the Yank's, Met's, Angles, Dodgers and Atlant more »

  • Forum Post: How many more outs will the umps give the Rays?

    Posted 09/17/2008 04:00:42 EDT

    I can't believe MLB is in the tank for the Ray's!! Nobody knows who they are across the country and nobody cares about them. They are a cinderella team with no history and no big names and no followin more »

  • Forum Post: Inconsistency will kill us

    Posted 09/17/2008 03:52:06 EDT

    Some teams get on a roll and they can't be beat. This years Rays and the 2003 Marlins who had all the luck in the world that year and of course the '69 Mets. Nothing ever comes easy for the Sox, they more »

  • Forum Post: Bartolo Colon worked four scoreless, hitless innin

    Posted 08/22/2008 03:57:46 EDT

    How poor must have been this guys physical shape to be out over 2 months from swinging a bat? Pitchers do it in the NL every day. This guy needs a membership to a gym and Weight Watchers. I don't thin more »

  • Forum Post: Who would you replace Buchholz with?

    Posted 08/21/2008 07:54:00 EDT

    Could it be that Colon is big and fat and out of shape to begin with and that we'll never see him again in 2008? Instead of rehab the guys need Jenny Craig and a gym membership. Is Josh Johnson still more »
