  • Well, they (the Forbidden Three) got what was coming to them for defecting to the enemy team. It's common for fans to call them a traitor after defecting from the Red Sox doesn't mean anything. "Crying your way out of Toronto so he can pitch for NY" to C*****s was the exact response many other Beantowners would've said to crybaby C*****s.

    B***s and D***n got what was coming to them on their return visits to Fenway, especially their first visit. (On May 22, 2006, the day I graduated from high school, D***n still got booed relentlessly, even though he returned earlier in the month.) How vicious was C*****s' reaction when he returned to Fenway Park in 1999?

    Tomorrow's another night, you know, Yanks. We'll be ready for you tomorrow night...

      And for the Yanks: David Wells joining the Red Sox in 2005 - what were your thoughts on a perfect game thrower join the team you never wanted him to (or you did)? (or any Yankee fan favourite that defected to the Red Sox)
      I'm guessing that Wade Boggs was the first superstar player to jump ship like that. I'm guessing that the closest opposite was Cone, who in Sep 2001, came within 1 strike of being on the opposite side of a Perfecto by Moose.

      I'd have to look up his stats, but Wade was famous for riding that police horse. I just remember wondering howhe became a Yankee.

      Boomer didn't wish to be disciplined. Amost 10 years after people felt it would, his weight finally caught up to him. He refused some weight clause that Torre and Mel Stottlemyre (pitch coach) insisted on. He ended up pitching quite well against us, railed against us for booing him. What did he expect to receive, that Clemens got at Fenway?

      In the end, Cone ended up returning to the Boss' favor after spending time in notorious Section 39 (Bleacher Creatures), and George gave him a YES announcing gig, which he still has.

      I preferred Clemens' first stint with the Yanks. After he'd declared free agency following the 2003 season, after the heavily-promoted and long "Goodbye at all the ballparks" type of tour, even replacing Zito in the 2003 ASG due to sentiment, I couldn't believe he was so calculating.

      When Clemens returned, I thought it was an admission that Cashman couldn't get an SP. The quick and ugly signing which cost boatloads of money but no players.

      After all of the PED allegations, I'd just consider him an ex-Yankee and let him fade away.

      • Nobody's worn #21 in Fenway since Clemens left. As far as I'm concerned the only Texan who deserves to have that number retired was Ray Culp. Culp pitched hurt and was never a crybaby. Culp had courage.

        Beckett wore #21 with the Marlins. They should give him #21 in Fenway

            • Actually, I've been reading up on the trade deadline and also busy in real life. Seems like Posada went under the knife, and Pudge replaces him. Who'll be next to be replaced on the teams' rosters?

              By the way, my next question. Who lost two of three to BALTIMORE, I wonder? The team with the confusing name changes comes to New York tonight for four, and they're ready to take the Yanks down. I like this idea...

              • Ok, let here it. How badly did the Sox get soaked in this,

                'Dodgers get Manny, Bay to Red Sox, four players to Pittsburgh', deal? :dismay: :crossfingers:

                I think they gave up way too much, in prospects especially, for Bay . . . :disbelief: h

                  It's basically Manny, Moss & Hansen for Bay. I knew Hasen wa sgoing to eventually go ina deal, but since we needed BP help...WHY DIDN'T THEO DEMAND THAT GRABOW BE INCLUDED????

                  Even when we got rid of Nomar in '04, we at least got two players in return.

                  • I guess it really doesn't matter what we got for him. Bottom line, he had to go. Period. - :disbelief:

                      And you can bet your bottom dollar that they use the savings from his salary next year($13 million at least) towards getting good relief and retaining Bay for a few more years...

                      And what does Bay do in his first game with Boston? Gets on base four times including a triple that would lead to him being the game winning run...not a bad debut.

                      • Well, the Yanks get to deal with the "other" Rangers - these Rangers score lots of runs, AND also give up lots of runs as well! This is going to be an interesting series, but they'll get sick of the heat on this savannah and split the series. Boston gets to deal with the Royals at KC, and it's Buchholz vs. Meche, Beckett vs. Bannister, then for the finale... Wake vs. Hochevar. Those are the correct names for the Royals - crazy names. Then off we go...to the Windy City!

                        As for the Yanks, here's who you are facing in this chaotic four-game series: Joba vs. Padilla, Pettite vs. Harrison, Ponson vs. Tommy Hunter and then...the Moose that's about to lose his antlers (starting rotation) because of his age vs. Scott Feldman. Will the Rangers' scoreboard break because of how many runs the Yanks give up? Will the scoreboard in Kansas City get hit with a fly ball by Jason Bay? Stay tuned.

                        • Where's Ken? Did he put a hex on the Yanks? You folks are supposed to lose, we're supposed to win. Remember?

                          Anyway, here he is representing Red Sawx fantasizers the world over. I heard his media appearance was co-written by his favorite beverage company.

                            Boy Matt, you must have one hell of a memory to remember that far back . . . .


                            Hey Matt, check out this ESPN A.L. East Poll. VERY insightful. Don't you think?

                              So Ken, when are you going to admit that the svelte guy on that pack (complete with his 6-pack abs) is really you? They could be 24-pack abs, since I think it took him a few cases to get into such lovely shape.

                              Now then, new and scandalous youth pix of efin98 have been located, and are revealed below:



                              Where is CB when we need her? Meditating, perhaps?



                              I guess that magic marker sales have gone up since Damon left, eh?



                              CB's new av:



                              And of course, the cheesy dig:



                              I think I remember seeing this guy somewhere. Can you remind me where? Please?
