« Sunday Bloody Sunday - Fear and Loathing in a Brief Postseason: Rise of the Execrable Phoenix – No Shows, Show-Offs, & Big Money – 2009: Year of the Weird is Affirmed | Main | Game 5 of ALCS at Fenway Park Tonight - That was the Plan at Least »

I'm seriously going to lose it if the Sox don't resign J-Bay!!!
He's actually the topic of my "persuasive speech" that I have to make this week. hahaha pretending the people in my program are the red sox management. hahahha

I really think the Sox will play it conservative this off-season for a few reasons. First is that the FA market is weak. 2011 is a MUCH stronger class with younger talent. The Sox will also be rid of Ortiz and Lowell at the end of next season and will have more cash to spend. No one is going to take either one of those two off our hands before then. I think Bay could be a casualty of the off-season plan UNLESS the Sox think he will contribute at a high clip after next season. They are clearly gunning for 2011 to be SERIOUS contenders. Add that to the fact that the Yankees have to decline eventually, or at least Jeter, Rivera, and Posada have to. If they don’t I’m getting the FDA on the line.

IF the Sox do anything this off-season, it will be through trade. It's hard to tell what the value of the Sox young players available for trade would be. Certainly any of Hanley, Felix Hernandez, or Adrian Gonzalez are absolute young studs and would be great to acquire if possible. The Sox also have a track record of replacing talent in the minors and holding on to the right players and I wouldn't think any of these trades would "decimate" our system either. That's the beauty of being a player development machine like the Sox are becoming (other than power hitters, ugh).

Finally, check out some great Boston Memorabilia from my client, Steiner Sports. I can't wait until the WS is over and we can warm up the HOT STOVE! It’ll definitely be an interesting off-season in Boston.

2005 BDD Playoff Push Party

  • Bar & TV's and Boston Dirt Dogs had a playoff push party at Game On! in Fenway Park on September 19. The game didn't go so well as the Sox lost, however, a lot of people had a good time hanging out while getting to "meet" the trophy!

2004 World Series: Game One

  • Mounted Police
    My brother Chris flew into Boston from Chicago to help me root on and pull for the Sox in the Series. We went right from Logan Airport to the Park and ended up watching the game across the street from Fenway at Bills Bar on Landsdown Street. We looked into scalping tickets but standing room only were going for $1,200 and up!This was a great and memorable day to be able to be with my brother in Boston to see the Red Sox in the World Series. This is a snap shot of two weeks of my life that provided a lot of sorrow, joy, sleep deprivation, and hangovers. Two of the best weeks of my life...
