MALE, Maine

About Me: Male, from Maine, Sox fan all my life. I still have my Yankee Hater cap and my Yankees Suck T-shirt but I don't take it all that seriously. I'm just having fun with it. It's not life and death - it's only baseball.

    Relax.  Enjoy the ride.  Take what you can for enjoyment this season and wait for the off-season.  Life is better when you lower your expectations.   Any owners who sign previously suspended PED abuse more »

    In response to ctredsoxfanhugh's comment: The problem with saying we should have traded this guy or that guy back then is we are talking from hindsight.  What if Betts crumbles? we should have traded more »

    In response to maxbialystock's comment: But, see, that's exactly where I disagree with you--on the notion that not keeping Iglesias led directly to the demise of both the hitting and the pitching for more »

    I'm normally as optimistic as anyone you're going to meet, but sooner or later realism kicks in.  Realistically, this team is not going to the post-season.  One three game winning streak from a team t more »

    In response to maxbialystock's comment: I have strong doubts about Bradley's hitting but just as strong a conviction that now is the time to give him another shot with Betts on the DL and Vic in LA. I more »

    Some of the discussion here reminds me of a credit card commercial that aired after the 2004 WSC when "they" came to collect on things people had said.  "I'd give my first born child for a Red Sox Cha more »

    In response to moonslav59's comment: Guye, two fielding mistakes are not what you judge a trade balance on. Yeah, they helped us get past the Tigers, which we might have anyway. Having Iggy right now, more »

    In response to slomag's comment: I don't think Peavy made much of a difference in 2013, but Iglesias basically handed us the ALCS.  Game 2 he puts the winning run in scoring position with an error.  G more »

    In response to crazy-world-of-troybrown's comment: I like the other guy with Joe even more. He's real good. I seldom listen to the radio.  Is that Dave O'Brian?  If so, I agree.  He's great. And he do more »

    I'm wrong as often as I'm right about things, but IMO this is the result of a major bloodletting in the FO.   If you think you and I are upset about how this team has performed over the past couple of more »

    Bradley really is stinking it up.

    Which is why it would be important right now to talk about iggy.
