Bio not provided
My sources now confirm: the Red Sox won last night. Sources also confirm that Buchholz is still whining, despite it being the World Series.
1 year, 1 month ago on Game One, Game On
Today, I woke up, throttled a Schlitz and began preparing the apartment for what will certainly be an all-out riot. It's time for flagrant alcoholism. It's time for another World Series.

I have tickets for tomorrow's game. I want everyone to know right here that I will NOT be going. I will NOT be selling, scalping, or otherwise dealing them. In fact, I won't even watch another game this year. And I thought this team couldn't disgust me any more. The classiest thing we can do, as fans, is just not show up to games. After all, in Pedroia's words, "I wish I could have been there."

Occasionally, I get the feeling that Beckett looks forward to batting.

For being a new ballpark, this is an ugly -ass ballpark.
Orsillo, wear a hat.
He's got to go. There is no question anymore.

@hannah82 oh he dropped one. But only one. I feel like that's a triumph.
^^^ that wasn't a joke, he really said that.
Fresh from Beckett's lips: "I spend my off days the way I want to spend 'em." and "my off day is my off day".
Beckett: "I feel pretty good."
@hannah82 I would agree. He just sounded totally depressed. Someone asked him about the home losing streak, he said "It will end." Sounded more like he was telling himself that.
Bobby looks like a broken man.
Bobby says "maybe its just a little too much time off". Interesting.
@hannah82 Alright, I'll hang around. Should be entertaining.
@SoxFaninMD Don't waste any of the good stuff tho. Go for quantity, not quality, tonight.
I can't wait for the Beckett interview. Let's see how pissy he gets.
I mean to say "that's a quick 2 outs" -- ooops!
@SoxFaninMD No, you should watch. Savor.
oh boy, that's a quick inning.
@SoxFaninMD The fact that I'm reminiscing about JD Drew is both terrifying and awe inspiring at the same time...that one grand slam...the good 'ole days...
I will openly agree to disagree with anyone who thinks this isn't a bridge year.
Thank God we have Alfredo ACyves Young on the hill. How can this possibly end badly?
@KTMFF Correct, Bobby V certainly isn't the problem. But, if you fire Teets for last year, you've got to fire Bobby V for this year. Same crap is going on.

I knew bobby wasn't cut out for this gig when they signed him. But I expected him to at least fire these guys up -- I mean the bastard strolled back into a dugout with a fake mustache for chrissakes -- but we're pretty deep here with no signs of life. Clay does not deserve to be in a major league rotation, send him down. Get rid of Beckett. Doubront will be fine. Bard? Who cares at this point.
Well, I'm going to go give myself papercuts for the rest of the day. Peace everybody.

has saltalamacherena ever thrown out a runner??
I hope Cook walked back into the dugout blood-soaked and asked Beckett about his lat.
Well that was bad. Between the awful performances, poor management, and the sellout-streak-bullshit, for the first time since 2002, I'm ready to see this ownership move on. Most things have a beginning and everything has an end. It's time. The past few years have been nothing short of embarrassing, and we deserve better.
2 years, 6 months ago on Welcome Back, Orioles!
@Madraider Might be tough with their infielders tossin that soggy salad.
@jules well the good news is, if he really is injured as badly as it seems, Cherington will probably sign him to a long, expensive deal.
Sweet. Let's see if we can get Eck to swear tonight.
"Lose 5, Win 5" will be a tough way to get through the season. But it's better than "Lose 5, Lose 5" I guess.
2 years, 7 months ago on Bat Day!
I just want to know what Sam Elliot is doing in our dugout. Oh...he's the pitching coach??
2 years, 7 months ago on Game Thread: Picking a Winner by Mugshot
@BeardedInMD Holy shit, this is the best idea I've heard in a long time. If we can hologram Crawford in as a hitter and pinch runner, we might almost get our money's worth.
Evening everybody. I'd just like to start by celebrating the virtual retirement of Carl Crawford.
So despite bringing in Aceves, we've managed to win one. Well done boys.
2 years, 7 months ago on First Hurdle: Beating Santa Claus
Barbed Wire Gardenhire might have actually woken up there.
It seems to me that the Red Sox will be trading Cody Ross soon. His ability, clubhouse contributions, and decent attitude are not a good fit.
@Madraider @BB.13 yeah, at least the sabermetrics say that this week.
2 years, 7 months ago on Commander Found, Ells Lost
@GarrettCRW ChuggaDoug had a unique knack for the delayed steal (read: "shit, screwed up that sign") that I'm sure accounted for at least 100% of his career steals. <--from baseball prospectus, clearly.
@hannah82 Especially when your "power-hitting" third baseman leads planet earth in GIDP
Uh, good hustle, Youk. We don't need baserunners today.
@SoxCrazy Clay would do well to drill this guy. Right in the boniest possible area.
Alright, this is more like it. Boys have some pop today. Kelly Shopvac definitely gets MVP for comically beating himself up all day.

@hannah82 @GarrettCRW If I ever said "you're horrible at your job" to anyone here, they would beat the ever-living piss out of me.
The three stooges promo is fitting. Select just about any three members of the active roster.
Beckett is looking...scary. Lots of stuff out over the middle.
@bjchit Lester did not deserve the loss for this thing.
