« Big T's Blazin' Sports Thoughts - Trade Papelbon? | Main | Waking Up On the Wrong Side of the Cage - World Series Trepidation, and Hope - The Ghost of Pedro Past to Haunt Yankees Again? »

October 22, 2009



Amen and I hope the Phils put up a better fight than the Angels.

Hey, what kinda guitar you got in the background?


that sucks man about not being able to go.
I am curious your thoughts on where the Sox should look for help or any other Sox fan reading this.
Should we upgrade with some pitching? (Lackey anyone?)
Should they move Youk over to third for good and go after a 1st basemen?
Should the Red Sox re sign JBay?
So many questions.....
I think we should get a pitcher i personally am not to high on Lackey.
What do you guys think?
Going through Sox with drawls in Canada :(

ps-go Angels,go Phillies....Break a arm Johnny Damon! that's how i am feeling right now :)
The Red Sox will be back hard next year don't lose faith.




I agree another arm would make me feel better but I'm concerned about defense behind the plate and the need for another bat - Joe Mauer, anyone? I hope the Sox sign Bay but I also don't want them to overpay and that might be hard to do given the year he just had.


Joe Mauer would be sweet! he is a free agent? let the bidding wars begin between NY and Boston again.But Mauer behind the plate and V-Mart at first and move Youk over to third fulltime and play Lowell once in a while.WOW that would be awesome.
I think Cliff Lee is a free agent to,i would like him under the tree for Christmas too.haha


At least you have tickets...wait, that's a constant reminder of how weird this season was. Hopefully we'll be able to get things on track and come back and nail the Spankmes in 2010.

Neil: I'd love Mauer, but he's tied up with the Twins until after 2010 season. Signs are pointing to him resigning this offseason too. I believe that V-Mart is pretty solid, and will benefit with a year fulltime behind the plate. I think the Sox will exercise the option for Tek, but I don't see him getting much play time. ESPECIALLY since both V-Mart and Kottaras can catch Wake.

As for the other positions, here's my wish list -
LF - Re-sign Bay or pick up Holliday. I was surprised that Bay's numbers were not nearly as great as I thought they would be. There's even talk of moving Ells into left and getting a speedy CF.
1st - Somehow through a prayer, get Adrian Gonzales from the Padres and move Youk over to 3rd.
DH - Lowell & Papi, can't eat either contract.
SS - Get Stephen Drew from the D-Backs. AGonz is good, but we need someone solid, and young. I like Lowrie, but he's hurt too much and no guarantee he'll be okay. Same for Nick Green, got hurt, but if he's okay he's your utility infielder.

We've covered the big bat need(Adrian G), the need to fill SS(Stephen D), and LF(Bay or Holliday). We need another solid pitcher, mostly because of inconsistent seasons from DiceK and Josh Beckett. Wouldn't mind getting either Halliday or Lackey, tho Lackey is a serious douche who will demand craploads of money. Still can't believe he's only 31.

Derek Hixon

@Crusher - that's an Ibanez acoustic, nothing to fancy - but my first ever "real" guitar. His name is Norman, and has really fast action, and goes out of tune a little faster than I'd like but still, best guitar ever :)

@Everyone Else - I still don't think I can think too deeply on next in a weird baseball state now. That said, GO PHILLIES.

That's all.


GO PHILLIES! this is actually shaping up to be an exciting series, with the spanks facing the defending champs...

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...
