    i doubt you guys will get clark. he'd be a nice addition but the brewers probably have him penciled in their line-up for sure and i don't see nothing you guys have that milwaukee would part with him for.

    i think the two most likely candiates to be in center next year for boston is probably jeremy reed and coco crisp. i think boston should be able to land one of those guys to play center.

    as for as shortstop, i'm guessing whoever in charge will just plug that space in with a free agent like alex gonzalez or trade for juilo lugo or adam everett. is pedrioa (sp?) still in the mix for the job or does he need one more year in the minors?

    Over-rated? Most people think every MLB player is over-rated if he's popular. If you're compare him to Ruth? Of course, he's no Ruth and this signing is nothing like Ruth. Hell, the Red Sox trade Ruth, it's not the Red Sox trade Damon. If you want to talk about over-rated, then we talk about Damon's intelligence being over-rated.

    Fire Larry and the lapdogs. Remember the MASH scene where Hawkeye is in the mess tent, with a metal tray, jumping on the tables: "Something, something, NOW! Something, something, NOW!"
    That's how I feel.

    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.

    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?

    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.)
