    • Xmas came a bit early for us We got Crawford and Gonzalez and Wheeler

      (Mark Prior on a minor-league deal? Isn't that equivalent to a lump of coal?)

        This year certainly does look more promising.
        I'm really looking forward to watching A-Gon hit in Fenway this season. I think a 40 HR, 130 RBI season for him is not out of the question.
        Now if Beckett and Lackey could perform close to justifying their salary's, the Sox have a chance to reach the 100 win plateau. Especially since Tampa shouldn't be that much of a factor in the AL East this year with losing many of their offensive stars.

            Redsox/Yankees doesn't get as violent as those soccer rivalries get, does it?

            I mean, I've seen dozens of Redsox/Yankee games and nobody ever raises a fist to one another. Of course I've seen all of these games at Yankee Stadium (both old and new) so I don't know what it's like on the other side - I have been to Fenway, but never when the Yankees were in town. I would LIKE to think that it's not considered dangerous for Yankee fans to simply SHOW UP at Fenway. It's not, is it?

            (I would hope not. Redsox fans are fairly well treated at Yankee Stadium, so I can only assume that I - as a Yankee fan - would not be in danger if I went to Fenway. And no, I wouldn't be getting drunk or starting fights or any of that crap.)

            • Beckett's performance was a shocker. Now they need to build on this weekend.

                I think this might just be what we needed.
