Coming onto this site was the low point of my Sox season.  This site always rocked ... til now. Been logging in every couple of month for the last 4 + yrs.  Its crickets on here ... articles with 2 comments!  Used to be 200.  And of the two, both are nothing more than some moron having an epileptic f-bomb fit.  

Whoever Denton is, glad to see he is still bringing it nightly

The send off today was why I was proud to be a Red Sox fan!  Awesome he hits a triple - how poetic given he is a 3rd basemen and given that he gave his heart and soul, so sweet he got a send off like that.  And even sweeter the fans knew what the fuck was going on.  The only bummer was that Remy and Orsillo refused to put 2 and 2 together and say something appropriate to the moment.

Given that the trade deadline is still a month away I don't understand the need to trade him so soon. Middlebrooks has been phenomenal but its only been 34 games. What if he seriously slumps or gets injured? It sure would be better to turn to Youkilis than Nick Punto!! Why not wait a few more weeks and see where the club is then? Was it really that necessary to get him off the team this quickly?

@Tex19 I'm going out to do that now - just sucks that the only guy who I know in San Diego who "gets" baseball is a Yankee fan. Actually Joe isn't so bad, he offered me his somewhat heartfelt condolences yesterday.

Gonna go drink and root against the Yankees now.

@invisiblefan@TransplantedSoxFan@English Sox Fan Isn't there a hotline where you can report terrorists? Let's get Lackey designated as an enemy combatant and sent to Guantanomo

@invisiblefan@English Sox Fan I agree - there will be more moves - but its going to be next to impossible to get rid of Lackey ... I think your mysteriously missing idea is the leading candidate. We should start a website and gather ideas for this ...

@English Sox Fan@TransplantedSoxFan If this was football - you could just release those guys. Lackey would have been released in June ...

@English Sox Fan@TransplantedSoxFan I agree - but you can't do that in baseball when contracts are guaranteed. No one will take Lackey cause they would have to pay him 15 million for the next 3 yrs. We are stuck with the big contracts.

@English Sox Fan We had the talent ... they just didn't perform ... time to make the talent a little less comfortable about their own jobs

@poprocksncoke I'm freaking sad seeing Tito go ... even if I agree with it.

Despite most pundits saying this is the wrong move and that Francona doesn't deserve this - this is the right move. Its true the players played like sh(*t in Sh&*#tempber ... but guess what ... its the managers job to get the most out of his players. Its been 8 yrs and every manager gets tuned out sooner or later. Look at what happened to Torre in NY - even he didn't win any titles after his first 5 yrs.

Plus as they say - you can't fire the team (which sucks) but you can't just bring everybody back and tell 'em to play harder. This is the shot over the bow to the players that their lack of passion and focus will NO longer be tolerated.
