  • Red Sox will be a seller this year . . .


    Unfortunately the selling will to start soon. We better get a great bat for Lester & also something good for Buchholz. I feel horrible about loosing Lester, but Buchholz just doesn't have the head on his shoulders to be a leader on this team. There will be hurt feelings, but with the pitchers they have coming up, they now have to think about the future.
    And about the trade between the Cubs & the Athletics, you want quality, you have to give up quality. This team has quality arms, it needs quality bats. And, Big Papi isn't going to be playing for the next 5 years either!
    I don't care if Buchholz and Pevy goes, but we'd HAVE to get a lot back for Lester because I'm really reluctant to let him go...

      Instead of counting sheep, YankeeMan must be counting millions and millions of dollars...5 million to Soriano for half a season, 6 million down the tubes so A-Rod can sit this season out, 10 million wasted on the sleep-deprived fan suing the club, and 22 million that is now on the line pending Tanaka's MRI. They could use Buchholz I bet.

        And the only thing I'm counting right now is the Yankees are only THREE GAMES back in the loss column at the start of play today.
        Oh, and TWENTY-SEVEN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS!

          I can tell you took Ancient History back in your Michigan days. I almost feel sorry for your team losing it's best starting pitchers this year. The Sox are about to trade their ace and that leaves us with Lackey, Peavy, and maybe trying Holt on the mound after Victorino comes back.

          • How long until football season?

            To tell the truth, I'm on the verge of putting my "gone fishing" sign out. The AL East has gone to the birds this year. :clown:

                  What are you talking about? You're older than me!

                  Hey, I'm not say Ken's old but when he says he's been a Carl Yastrzemski fan since he was a kid..."

                    Ok. I gotta admit, that was a good one. - nod.gifwink.gif
                    BTW. Did you know that Carl Yastrzemski was the first 'Little-Leaguer' to be inducted into MLB Hall of Fame?

                      And did you know that Carl Yastrzemski presented me my First Place trophy at our Little League Banquet? I'll never forget him telling everybody how much fun he had beating them Wolverines of Michigan when he played for Notre Dame. He couldn't wait to play the next Sox-Yankee series so he could improve his batting average on Yankees pitching and beat them Yanks.

                          I shook his potato-picking hand and he autographed something for every little leaguer. This was around 1963 when he was still just a highly touted prospect, and you know the Sox had plenty of them who went on to great real estate careers or sales careers.

                          Copying his strange batting stance cost me 80 points in my batting average that year. I should have picked some potatoes and built up my wrists.

                            2. I also copied his batting stance when I was a kid. Holding my bat high & perfectly vertical.
                            3. He was my baseball hero, god really. How I loved watching him play left field!

                              Yaz' was overrated. Not that I'm biased or anything. :clown:
