speculation on who that "uniformed member" was? Who in the clubhouse speaks that way? @hannah82 @English Sox Fan

I think he did his wife a favor. She is far too beautiful to be with a troglodite like that. @Madraider @Tex19 @invisiblefan @Nikki in Denver
I like that your saying - I'll have to use that one! Gonzo might have something to say about the second one though - I recall him saying that baseball always came 2nd to God. So, yeah, he must have been a bitch to listen to on Sundays. @invisiblefan @Tex19
I will scream like Charlie Kelly if they let McDonald ride the bench next season. He's had his 15 minutes in the big time - and he belongs in Pawtucket.
I honestly could not tell the difference between Wheeler, Jenks and Albers this season - they seemed like the same ineffective fat guy, and at least one of them was always on the DL. Actually, are we sure they weren't actually the same person?@Sharpie @VJ in Stuttgart
John Henry needs to invite him out on his boat. @SoxFaninMD @VJ in Stuttgart
ya know, when I started reading all of Gonzo's Bible-thumping interviews, I just had a bad feeling that would not go over well in the clubhouse with anyone besides Saltalamacchia. Especially when he started talking about finding teammates to attend Bible study with. Uh, Adrian...you do realize this is BOSTON, right? Was he really that unaware of who he was signing with? @VJ in Stuttgart
whatever Globe photog who took that deserves an award - two uncertainties at the end of a long dark hallway, looking at an empty ballpark - the boss in his suit, the coach in his uniform. A really fitting picture for the end of the season. :-( God, I look back now at how hopeful I was when they announced the Gonzo and Crawford signings. I was like, this year is gonna be so AWESOME. I was in every Yankee fans face with joy about the upcoming season. I could have never pictured it would come to this. @DaleSams
Interesting - I'd love to talk to you more about it offline. I am pursuing a graduate degree in criminal justice next fall. @Tex19 @invisiblefan @Madraider
Gross - as much as I am in favor of pulling a "beyond scared straight" on him as I think he was a bully in that clubhouse, nobody wants to see the "candy" that comes out of Lackey - seeing his mouth-breathing grossness ever five days was enough, thanks. He looks like he smells bad and farts a lot. @Tex19 @Madraider
I honestly believe it was a trickle-down effect from Lackey. According to all the reports, the drinking started two years ago - which was right when they acquired Lackey. Beckett's been a vocal admirer of his. Beckett, in turn, influences both Lester and Buchholz as Lester at least has been vocal about looking up to Beckett. And I think Lackey just an egomaniacal bully who encouraged it all. I think we all know Beckett has a huge asshole side to him, but before Lackey arrived, others were able to reign it in more - like Mike Lowell. Lowell was a humble guy who the others looked up to and who came with Beckett from Florida - Beckett wrote the intro to his biography and I think they had a big brother/little brother thing going on. And when Lowell left Lackey sucked up the power like a vacuum. I think you take Lackey out of the equation and you have a whole different clubhouse. Which really makes me feel even worse for Carl Crawford - think about it. The pitchers are off being a Texas terror and telling the position players to suck their left nut, the Hispanic players (Ortiz, Scutaro, A-Gon) are probably hanging out together, Ellsbury/Lowrie are a twosome, along maybe with Pedroia, who the pitchers probably see as Tito's pet. In my opinion, Ells does not like Crawford and this season was all about proving he was more valuable than a $20 million redundancy. So who's got Carl's back when Lackey's showing him up? I can't think of a single ally beyond maybe Ortiz for him in that clubhouse. I would bet that that played a role in his poor performance this year - it must have been a lonely year for him. @hannah82 @English Sox Fan
which is worse: this or the 2007 super bowl loss?

I am rooting for a Tigers-Rangers championship! @hannah82
nO NO NO NO NO NO!!!
YEahhhh Orioles!!! you still finished in last place!!! Good work.
what the fuck are THEY celebrating about?
update? @Sox in the Desert
I think I have to watch this at-bat with my hands over my face.
1 down...2 to go...BREATHE.
wow, interesting...with what Lavarnway has done to them already, they'd rather face him than Adrian Gonzalez?
Mike Aviles just looks happy to be there.
oh man...good time to send it out of the park, Papi. one last one!
is there a stat somewhere that counts on average how many pitches a certain player sees per at-bat? his has gotta be pretty high. @COYS
would be a great time for Pedey to work one of his epic 13-pitch at bats.
is Jacoby gonna run on Weiters?
it's the A-Rod glove slap! @StacyB
Jacoby has a great ass.
argue it, Tito. come on!
I have been in love with him since July 30, 2007. @Nikki in Denver
man, am I glad to see Jacoby!
yes, you can. remember 2003? and 2004? and the Cleveland series in 2007? we've been here before - your heart's already built up the strength for it. @COYS
damn, I wish I came from one of those countries where one's actual birth date is debateable... @Sox in the Desert @COYS
great! just the guy I was hoping to see on the mound this inning.
they shoulda held Scutaro at 3rd - fucking Bogar.
take the walk, Carl. Paaaaatienceeee!
J.D. Drew - why are you still here???
and sort of sadly chewing a mushy plate of food as I watch. @StacyB
no lube...it would be great if it was lubricated. @Sox in the Desert
me too. @alexis_b82 @GodzillaJoe
And it's fucking Andino. Love this guy. He fucks us anally every time.
I am ironically in that state of both fierce anger and borderline crying. Like Charlie Kelly on steroids.
This HAS to be the state of mind of every Red Sox fan out there right now.
to blatantly rip off Louis CK, are they all thrown in a bag like chicken parts? or are they sticking out of a bag straight up like baguettes? do you do it one by one, or do you have to eat them all at once? @Nomar Hamm
You mean you actually stopped hating them? don't you know you never stop hating them? that's when they sneak back into our lives and ruin it! @alexis_b82
it has everything to do with the Rays - and the fact that they just won't lie down and take it like the rest of the division not named the Yankees! @JohnWhitaker
Those Rays are like fucking roaches. They just won't die!!!
wait a minute - holy shit. Where in the fucking fuck did 6 runs just come from????
@Jennie I know, it's as relevant as Stevie Strasbourg striking out 10 today.Your game was meaningless - congratulations.
When I lived at home, this was usually the point in the night when my mom would wander into the room, look at the tv screen and go, "now...which one is Johnny Damon?" and I would emit a Charlie Kelly-like scream.
