    Lillibridge didn't make Larry Lucchino's letter so that should have been a tip off.

    Youk sends a love letter to Boston....

    I want to thank the Red Sox ownership for all the hard work and dedication to making the Red Sox and Fenway Park a special place to play. They have always supported me on the field, and have helped out in many ways off the field. I can't thank them enough for my time in Boston.
    And, last but no means least, to all the Red Sox Nation, the home of the most dedicated and knowledgeable fans in baseball, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. That final game at Fenway was the most emotional day of my life on the baseball field. It could not have been scripted any better. And to all those kids out there in Red Sox Nation, I can give you my Dad’s advice. “Life is like a throw to first base, always aim high.”

    I think they should extend Lucchino.

    Oh, definitely. This is Bronx Zoo on milkshakes.

    I feel bad that Youkilis's big return is being overshadowed by the return of Boston hero Carl Crawford

    I'm no screenwriter, but I think I could have scripted his last game better than 2 for 4, with an infield single and an RBI triple that extended the lead from 8-4 to 9-4.

    Lowrie, injured in a collision at second base Saturday, was diagnosed with a right ankle sprain and damage to the peroneal nerve, which runs up the lower leg. He is set to return to Houston to visit team doctors and learn more about the extent of the injury and potential timing for a return

    Re: The Red Sox Thread

    So...Red Sox win..get Crawford back...then they lose Ortiz for a few games with an Achilles injury...lots of teams with a lot of injuries, including the Yankees but they have to be plagued the most...

    As he walked to the shower, Ortiz shook his head about being the latest Red Sox player to be injured.

    “This (expletive) team is cursed,” he said.

    Lowrie's amount of production over the course of the first half would still be alot more than Melancon could give in the second half.

    Haha! that's a great term for Papi to be tossing around up in Boston. They're big fans of blaming failure on curses.

    that ortiz quote sums them up well. we lose the greatest closer of all time for the year and you hear our guys say "no one is going to feel sorry for us" etc but they talk about curses.

    This curse stuff is just ridiculous. Grow up. Take some blame for just sucking (the 86 year curse) or getting old, body breaking down or whatever.....

    I thought at first you were talking to me and not Ortiz. I was like "what did i say?"


    the one that really needs a filter is Bill James...having to have your owner to tell you to cork it for defending Paterno and blaming the media is just blech.

    This is true, but if you're a Sox fan, you're already stuck with the deal whether you like it or not. Since you're already stuck with the deal (not you, but the hypothetical Red Sox fan), it's nice to know that Melancon has been great since coming back from AAA and partially mitigating to know that Lowrie got hurt, which was always the main concern about keeping him in the first place. It's not exactly logical value analysis, but not quite grasping at straws, either. More like looking on the bright side of a deal you probably didn't want management to make in the first place. Somewhere in between, I guess.

    Lester is kinda bad. Surprised the pitching coach hasn't gotten canned, isn't he one of Francona's guys?

    which one? there are two - 1 is McClure who was hired in December - after Tito but before Valentine ..he's the one on a different page from Valentine and they don't seem to get along at all...

    then there's Niemann who was Valentine's guy as far back as the Mets..he was just kicked off the bench by the front office..he had filled in when mcClure was dealing with a family emergency...

    The reason assistant pitching coach Randy Niemann was taken off the bench was so McClure could better assume his normal pitching coach duties. Niemann is a longtime Valentine coach, was his bullpen coach with the Mets, and he served as Sox pitching coach when McClure left the team for three weeks because of a family matter. Valentine relies heavily on Niemann; the decision to not keep him on the bench was made at the executive level, according to a team source.

    I don't think either pitching coach is a Tito guy but I think Tuck/bullpen coach is...and he's not happy with BV either...

    I seriously can not remember a team more in disarray and with more drama than this...I guess the Bronx Zoo days but at least they were winning.
