Sveum to be introduced as new Cubs manager tomorrow.   More angst from the RedSox faithful to follow as they've been outsmarted by the Cubs once again.

"once again"?
11/17/2011 4:41 PM
yeah, we're really ****** we missed out on the only guy we booed after the 04 championship

being booed by someone that actually knew what he was talking about would indeed be insulting maybe even humiliating....however, being booed by Deanod is a compliment. Cubs may be on to something good is what THAT tells me.

The mere fact that Red Sox fans go out of their way to **** on EVERYONE who helped bring them out of decades of suckery proves that they all think they have always been winners.  This clown is more of a winner than them.....

Sveum was terrible as a 3rd base coach in Boston.....this is fact
does that mean he will be terrible as manager? no, it doesn't

really, show me others that try to smudge the champions of '04....most would have blown Ego on the spot for years, right up until this year when his pile of stinking bodies became too hard to ignore.....Tito was well liked here, the players from '04 especially are beloved


Sveum came back to Boston and said, this is my offer from Chicago, can you better it...to which the Red Sox said no.....
if I'm a Cubs fan I say no thank you to Sveum...if the Cubs weren't his first choice, he can sit and spin
(and I am telling you all, Sveum was never a real target in Boston, he was a smoke screen---the owners are thinking about a bigger name)
11/18/2011 8:47 AM
that said, just give us Garza and Castro already, so we can be done with this thread...

we didn't just send you a President/GM afterall, we sent you a FRANCHISE SAVIOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If he was that good why did they let him go...?

All high profile manager hires are the same if they follow a team disaster. The manager was at fault he was too X for the players. They then hire a manager with the opposite personality.

Why wouldn't he try to get the best offer he could?
I have no problem if the Cubs are not his supposed first choice. 
The owners in Boston are trying their best to save face from a disastrous 3 months - what big name is out there?  Are they waiting for Maddon to play out his final contract year in Tampa?

I think this sums up Boston fans in a nutshell, after 86 years of waiting for a world championship, instead of being grateful they act like petulant little kids who think they are owed a championship.
