there will be no redemption this year.....obviously, you can point that it has only been three games, long way to go, blah-blah-blah.....

but, I'm not sure why anyone would expect this team that failed last year and improved itself at exactly ZERO positions, would be any better



I may not even follow this train wreck this year....who needs the headaches?
Stop being such a damn pansy.

They did upgrade.  Lackey isn't playing this year and Buchy is healthy.  Ross/Sweeney much better than Drew.

you realize that it is jock sniffing, blind loyalists liek yourself that enable ownership to believe that they can get away with taking an entire off season off and giving us nothing


Lackey is a bit of addition by subtraction, but nothing about this rotation says 'solid'....Lester is decent, Beckett can go screw, Clay is 'healthy', Felix is a massive wild card, and Bard is 'the most talented #5 starter in the league'.....yikes

don't even pretend to defend the bullpen.......I don't consider Ross/Sweeney as a replacement for Drew, he was largely invisible last year anyhow...they replaced Reddick
what they should have done is spent SOME of the money they had by not having to pay Drew, but they pocketed it and gave us table scraps

Lester is decent???

You lost all credibility right there.  Take your pink hat off and go play in traffic.

They did spend money they saved on Drew....it's called giving Gonzo a major pay upgrade ($6.3m to $21.9m).  Not to mention pay increases to Els, Ortiz, Buchholz and Pedy.

REDLINE HIS BANDWAGON *** FROM YOUR THREAD!!!!!

we've been round and round on Lester before.....nothing that he has done in the past two years would change anything I thought about him


he is not a #1....he does not outpitch other #1's.....he has good stuff but as an "ace" he is merely decent.....he'd be wicked awesome!!!!!!!!!!!! as our #3 starter

upgrading to you is paying the guys you already have that didn't get the job done more money?

Yeah, they should just have dumped Gonzo, Els, Pedy and Papi.  They sucked.  Hell, they should just get rid of everyone.

AGREED

Worst record in baseball . . . Ladies and gentlemen, introducing your 2012 Boston Red Sox!
4/13/2012 10:15 AM
Hopefully this is only a bad start and not a preview of things to come.
4/13/2012 10:29 AM
Why?
Valentine + Veteran team + 22-46 record = fun for the whole family!!!

Fantastic home opener for the Bo Sox....so far....
