Ever see "A Bridge Too Far" (or read Cornelius Ryan's book)?  This season is a lot like that.

Daaaaaaaaang, Becks was positively svelte in that old Marlins gear.  Or maybe it's just the slimming effect of the pinstripes (C.C. Sabathia could not be reached for comment).

 @EcksMoustache That is South Florida.  The only time it ever looked right was in the '80's.

Still love that pic of Teddy Ballgame.  That, ladies and gentlemen, was a man.

"Love that chicken from Popeyes". I am just chuffed to bits over the fact that in the last...I don't know, 20 years...I've spent exactly one weekend in Boston and during that time managed to ride in the same duckboat and eat at the same Popeys restaurant as many of the players. It's silly I know, but after the way last season ended I'm looking for all the positives I can get.

I TOLD you guys that Popeye's was good...unfortunately they probably blew their chances to sign Beckett and Lester as spokesmen with this article.
I believe every word of it. I don't know what the hell they were thinking by dumping it all out there, though...anyone going in to fill the vacated positions already know what an asylum Boston is with the press and the devotions of the fanbase...knowing that the ownership group could sell you out like that on a whim? Yeah, sure, sign ME up...things at Fenway aren't challenging enough as it is.

Idiots.

Holy God, THAT is a textbook example of a FUPA not seen since Charlie Weis patrolled the sidelines for Notre Dame.

@English Sox Fan Lack of run support finally drove him to drinkin'. Seriously, an ERA of 3.21 and a record of 2-3?

I'm the dandy highwayman who you're too scared to
mention
I spend my cash on looking flash and grabbing your
attention
The devil take your stereo and your record collection
The way you look you'll qualify for next year's old age
pension
Stand and Deliver your money or your life
Try and use a mirror no bullet or a knife
I'm the dandy highwayman so sick of easy fashion
The clumsy boots, peek-a-boo roots that people think so
dashing
So what's the point of robbery when nothing is worth
taking ?
It's kind of tough to tell a scruff the big mistake
he's making
Stand and Deliver your money or your life
Try and use a mirror no bullet or a knife
And even though you fool your soul
Your conscience will be mine
All mine
We're the dandy highwayman so tired of excuses
Of deep meaning philosophies where only showbiz loses
We're the dandy highwayman and here's our invitation
"Throw your safety overboard and join our insect
nation"
Stand and Deliver your money or your life
Try and use a mirror no bullet or a knife
And even though you fool your soul
Your conscience will be mine

@Nikki in Denver: There was an ad he made for the Asahi corporation just after signing w/ the Sox in 2007 where he not only drank but SLAMMED a pint of their Super Dry beer. He didn't get that waistline by drinking green tea, you know.
