« When the Baseball Season Ends | Main | Where Was the Red Sox Media? »

September 30, 2011



Believe it or not D... I feel bad about this as well. Francona was always a class act. He was not only a consummate professional but he also had a quality about him where you felt you could have a beer with the guy(something I couldn't even say for Torre).
It's sad that he is taking the fall for this. You could tell he had no desire to attend that press conference yesterday. I'm sure it was a formality. Truth is, as I'm sure you read, your clubhouse was in tatters. Very clicky and divided. Apparently Bookalis was a problem and his cavalier bluntness which was once appreciated... Went from being a positive to a burden. You have Gonzo saying the Epic collapse was "Gods Plan"... Yeah that's not going to disgust one of the most educated cities in the US or anything.
I do want to say though in regards to your previous post. Derek this collapse was EPIC. Not just for the fact it was by Boston yet again... Or even the amount of games but for the way the last game unfolded. You couldn't script somehing filled with more Irony and more joy to devastation flip flopping and impeccable timing.
I'd be lying if I said it was not one of my most pleasurable moments as a baseball fan. But I do admit. I felt bad for Mr Francona.
Watch him get the Chi-town job at some point and lead them to a title.


BTW ... I'm also shocked at how spoiled Boston has gotten. Do you truthfully believe you're going to rattle off championships any time soon? With the way things are now and the massive changes thst will tske place? I'm not rubbing it in... I'm asking honestly do you?
I told Boston fans a while ago... Don't get used to this. The reign of the "idiots" was short lived. You inevitably became corporate and boring. Just like the team you made fun of for years.
The guy won a desperate town with s losing tradition two titles in 4 years and he's the scapegoat. It's really disgraceful actually.

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...
