    Well, I think that's a little hyperbole; Johnny isn't Ruth by any stretch.

      I agree i can't see there being a curse from this
      Don't blame us if we ever doubt you,
      You know we couldn't live without you
      Red Sox, you are the only only only!

        Sounds like Mr. Damon hasn't been taking his medicine.

        He'd be having delusions of grandeur putting his son's name in a book about Babe Ruth, let alone the same sentence.

            Though i also agree that the only simliarity between Johnny and Babe is that they play/played baseball, but to me Jimmy Damon just sounds like one heck of a proud Father.
            "I see no reason why a small-market team like the Twins or Expos can't continue to remain competitive, just because it lacks players," Selig said.

              Chill. She's not the one making the comparison. She's just posting what is in the paper.

              (In regards to the mythical "Curse," there's a VERY interesting article by Glenn Stout in the latest issue of Elysian Fields Quarterly regarding the actual origins of the myth -- having to do with Henry Ford's anti-semitism and a very much misrepresented history of Harry Frazee. But that's fodder for another thread. I do suggest that everyone who can get their hands on this issue read the article. Very enlightening stuff.)

                Damon and his dad are both complete idiots.. and i don't mean
                the lovable, stupid, idiots that we once called Damon in Boston.

                Damon was by far one of my favorite players but i was constantly
                defending him when I talked about him. Everyone always
                talked about how gimpy his arm was, how hes lost a touch of speed,
                and his age.

                Damon did not curse the Sox at all. Good luck to him. We need to move
                on and stop talking about this. If this was Ortiz it would be a totally different
                story. Damon isn't even top 5 CF's in the game. I still have a lot of love
                for Damon but his head has already grown 10 inches since signing with
                NYY. "I feel as if they picked up the best CF in the game"......

                oh come on...

                The Cowboy Up/Idiot days are over. We gotta look towards the future
                of a new ball club. Be positive red sox nation!!!

                i hope everyone has a safe and happy holidays..


                maybe we can find alex gonzalez, Eric Byrnes, or Corey Patterson under our X-mas tree this year.. im almost positive last year we got Varitek

                  One positive note about all of this is maybe it will be easier to buy good tickets to games by 2007?

                      this is exactly the attitude we need to have as Red Sox fans, nicely put.

                          Johnny Damon has to be one of the more overrated players in recent history and it's easy to fix this mess.

                          Plan to rebuild the Red Sox:
                          (a) Trade Wells (+ prospect if necessary) for Dave Roberts (CF) and Adrian Gonzalez (1B).
                          (b) Make Tony Graffinino the SS.
                          (c) If necessary, fix up the weakness aspects of the team during the season until the trade deadline comes.

                          That should work.

                          The Q: Can the Cubs hold a 6-5 lead with 2 outs and nobody on in the 9th?

                          The A: No

                          ***********My Rant on Bud Selig***********
                          Selig is like a stray pigeon. Pigeons are too self-absorbed to care about anyone else. They poo on people they don't like; they poo on people they don't even know. The only real difference between Selig and a pigeon is that Selig intends to bury our heritage, our traditions, and our culture,

                            the guy that I wanna see in center for the red sox next season is Brady Clark currently with the Milwaukee Brewers. He'll be cheap comparitvely to John Damon (he loses the last to letters by going to new york in my book) and he'll put up good #'s (.306 AVG in 599 AB's with a .372 OBP last season).

                              We don't have a curse. We're infected by a virus called Larry Luciano.

                              We need help cure that virus.
