    In response to Joebreidey's comment: 1-We did have an ace, but the ace was injured. They had two aces in 2004 - Schill & Pedey.  As far as Schill is concerned, given the severity of his ankle injury, more »

    In response to Kingface12's comment: Yep......that team won 95 games.  Pretty darn good to do 'without an Ace'.  The key is to MAKE it to the playoffs like that team did.  ANYTHING can happen in the p more »

    Without an ace, the team as constructed so far, reminds me of the 2005 Red Sox.  That team had David Wells at the helm in the postseason and Matt Clement as a ace for the first half of the season.  Th more »

    Hmmm... What can Allen Craig bring?

    Maybe a fruitcake to the Christmas potluck.  He will also play Santa.  Instead of Santa's list it will be Craig's list.

    Apparently, he was also wooed by Maddon with a mutual interest in hunting in fishing.  Karmac justice for Red Sox fans would be that Maddon and Lester get mauled by a black bear while pursuing it.  I more »

    So, if his kids don't play HS football it means they can't have meaningful relationships and won't have stories for a lifetime? Is it either play football or live an unfilled life? Are those the only more »
