Raoul Duke

Now I can get my Ellsbury jersey right? It's no longer just for chicks and homos? :)

Lackey has always been a media troll, even when he started. I hated him with a passion in LA when he was a Halo, and I can't stand him in a Sox uniform.

Dude, you have the BALLS to yell that this is BS when Tito took you out last night and shake your head when it was tied? LOOK AT YOUR OWN HISTORY YOU TOOL!!!!! Your ERA blows! Tito made the right decision going to Aceves, he's always on.

Best thing Boston can do is use Lackey as little as possible, START Aceves instead of Wake, and limp into the playoffs. September has been a horrible month, but we can still pull it off with wins in Baltimore.

Josh, we need you man. Come on thru for us like you always do.

Yes, Lackey certainly could have handled this better. But my guess here is he got a text from an unknown number asking for a response, having no idea that it was TMZ, and assuming it was someone on the beat or a more typical sports reporter. It does help one to understand why the guy was having such a shit season, as there was some tough life stuff going on there that distracted him. That said? He's terrible. He was the only free agent starter on the market, we made a move, and we got burned. He can't get out of his own way on the mound and with the press. It'll be nice to see his contract moved when we trade Ells in the offseason.

How about Petey still diving for balls and trying to hustle out the single deep into extra innings? That kid doesn't have an off switch.

@Raoul I think it's a good sign of faith to get that jersey. Bora$ being his agent scares me - but he's been everything you could hope for this year.

I hear ya to a point, Tom, but for me at least - Lackey's been such a dick from Day 1 this year that any slack I'd give him is long gone. I'm sure no one in the Boston Media have ever texted him something this personal before, so for him to conclude they did is stupid, but it's the exact way he reacts to everything. Throw your arms up in the air and blame the infield, or in this case, the closest media member to you.

I wouldn't be shocked at all if his cell was leaked by a former teammate or former official back in LA, where TMZ is located, and he played for for years. The way this dude acts I don't think he leaves a trail of friends in his wake. All speculation there of course, but in the end he's the one who dragged his personal life into the forefront, not the media.

This would have stayed in the tabloids and as a byline in the Globe - but because of his outburst everyone in the Baseball World has an opinion on it, and that's because he's a reactionary, selfish prick.

What did I tell you when the Sox picked him up? He is Napolean Dynomite, minus the glasses... in a bulkier frame with a baseball cap. Honestly compare them...

Richard F Dent

Ok Sox Fans, let's hear it again like back in May. How does it go? Oh yeah, I rememeber: "yankees suck, yankees suck"

See you next year, losers

Derek Hixon

Thanks for the input here Dick. See ya' next year!

    Boston.com 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...
