For Jeter, its all about the mystique and aura, if he gets more than 3 years from the MFY, it'll be mistake and error. GET IT DONE CASH!

I thought it a slight miscalculation not retaining Saito's services, he would have been worth a couple more wins out there. Hopefully Beckett and Lackey rededicate themselves over the offseason after their embarassing campaigns this year, Tito needs to have a very very short leash with Dice BB as well next season. However, with that being said, If you could somehow maintain current production next year, add a dependable bp arm or two things look really bright.

I have a theory, to placate the fan base he makes token offers to both Beltre and V-Mart, lets both walk, prays Salty's thumb is ready to catch 90-100 games, resigns Tek to backup backstop and blows the wad on Crawford. Lowrie ends up at third, for now. It's been an interesting season and a wonderful season of strips HB. I still want a season ending sweep of the mfys.

It wasn't that the Sox were lousy, it was they were lousy and everybody, even Toronto was playing well. In addition, there always seemed to be a part of the team finding new ways to lose, parts that we thought would be awesome, whether it was shakey defense, or poor starting pitching or the bullpen screwin Wake outta wins, along with Papi's struggles. The first series in Fenway against TB was horrific, the opening series against the Yankees was tough as well. These are teams every Sox fan knows the Sox will have to battle throughout the season. It looked like our pitching and run prevention defense was rather impotent against the Yankees and the Rays. I'm still a little worried about Papelbon though.

You know, I have a feeling that BigBri might be a closet Sox fan, coming to a Sox fan blog to attempt to harrass us. He probably lives in a house full of yankee fans, but down in the basement bedroom in his closet he has a small shrine to Teddy Ballgame and Yaz. If you're gonna lose a game might as well go all crazy wild with your pitches and plunk a couple of guys. I bet they won't stand in so comfortable the next time they face Beckett. Never know when he might groove one right for the earhole on the helmet.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruger_LCP apparently this is the gun he used, kind of a small caliber personal protection gun. Not exactly a .44 magnum.

Kaz The Sox already have 2 guys like that, Ortiz and Drew. Unfortunately Pedey has cooled off as well. I thought they could produce enough runs with speed and contact hitting, but they really need a threat there batting third so the first two guys see some pitches. Dunno, its gonna be a long frustrating season.

I think you'll see Varitek be productive out of the backup catcher role throughout the season, he did have a slightly better than league average first part of the season last year. This team however, cannot afford to carry Ortiz for two months. Tito needs to have a very short leash, since there are atleast two capable bench bats. I'm all for cutting 60 day dling Ortiz bringing up Reddick to play right and slotting JD Drew as the DH if Papi's craptastic performance continues. The pitching will get better, Beckett and Lester are just two starts into the season.

I'm happy that I'll be able to watch the home opener tv here in TN, but having to listen to the bleeding Joe Morgan might drive me to ram a pen through each ear drum during the telecast.

There is nothing more American than being a fan of all things Boston, the very birthplace of our great nation. If the New Yorkers had their way we'd still be singing God Save The Queen. I think Boston fans are the fourth estate of baseball. We call out our own when they do boneheaded things off and on the field, we appreciate great plays from all teams even those from the loathsome Yankees. All we want is to be acknoweledged that we have a pretty damn good ball team with arguably the most varied history of any American sports franchise.

I think HB is saying JD Drew isn't that 1 1/2" thick ribeye, he's your damned lima beans and he's good for you, dammit inspite of the craptastic taste and texture.

Not that anybody will see or read this post, cause tomorrow's strip is just about 8 hours away. It's like a perpetual advent calendar, always waiting for the next flash of brilliance from HB, anyways, I digress. To toss around the Curse thing a bit, If I remember right, every Sox owner has won a world title except the Yawkeys. Even that twit Harry Frazee, got a world title from his team. I guess that's a bit too much digging for the CHB to do. Also it would take a bit of sack to level the curse at the sainted Mr. and Mrs. Yawkey. They have a street named for them after all. It's because of the Yawkeys the Sox missed out on Robinson and Mays and other black talent as well. This team is run much like a microbrewery that decides to go nationwide with distribution. It'll be consistently good, it may or may not win a gold medal at this or that beer fest, cause it has to sacrifice a bit on the awesomeness it once had, it can't be as exacting in all it's ingredients as it once was so it can be taken to the masses. Still it's better that the Bud Light alternative (New York Yankees).

I feel like Jim Carey and almost wish to click on muslima.com. It's probably easier to convert a center fielder to left field than to convert a muslim to say rational athiesm, or atleast agnosticism.

Yes it would be better if the freestyle skiers had to funnel a pitcher of beer, go head to head like that skicross format, and throw down big tricks stick the landings while their opponets are body checking them. But these guys wanna be taken seriously as athletes for playing in the snow. I blame the lawyers for taking the fun out of society. before long it'll be mandatory to wear a helment to go down the green dot trails. You can't even smoke on a skilift anymore let alone go barrelling down the slope wearing a beer helmet.

When I was 13-16 I really liked watching women figure skating, revealing costumes etc. etc. I'm waiting for a trendy canadian home show to have a couple that used reclaimed curling stones to make their granite counter tops. "It keeps these used unwanted rocks out of our landfills, so that there is more room for low grade radio-active waste."

Isn't it Doctor Ralph Stanley? and his 2008 release, Old Time Pickin' is old timey music done by a master. On the other side of the coin, I know of T.I. and Kanye and Ke$ha, but I don't think I could pick a tune of theirs out of 100.

I may be a pig, but hardly an elitist. I just don't trust any monopoly including all the current government monopolies. Nor do I trust those they farm out to the private sector so that memembers of the government can get kickbacks in the form of campaign contribution. Power corrupts.

Just imagine a world with a consumtion tax instead of the dreaded income tax and all the paper and bureaucracy that the income tax brings. No more IRS, no more auditors, no more property siezures without due process. And the FAFSA is almost enough to make a kid wanna drop out.

Jeff, it sounds as if you're a closet Libertarian, it's ok, there are many of them out there. Step into the light and reclaim your freedom, your sense of self determination. My prediction for the sox... Scutaro relapses from last year, slumps, and is injured and the Sox scramble to find stability in the infield yet again.
