My first sox games were in the late 70's, so they included the Boomer era.  As a little kid, it was just so much fun to hear the whole park chanting Boomer, Boomer!  A key piece of the Sox dynasty that should have been but wasn't. 

My condolences to his family.

Nothing to add.  Icarus.  OUTSTANDING.

Who?  Wasn't that guy with Mets or something?  Anway, since Tito left, I'm hopeful that Farrell will be able to fill his shoes.  #MemoryHole

He could use the whole album "Pet Sounds" as his warmup/intro music.

Awesome.  And the Yankees respond by hiring three Kryptonian free agents.  http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/5/57/GeneralZodForPresident20084.jpg

My dad took me to a few of those post-season games in 1986.  I was a lucky lucky kid.  Here are a few photos I shot: http://www.flickr.com/photos/atsolo/5121445276/in/set-72157625254839492

Oh, we'll send him to New Jersey where he'll be no tribble at all.

The Yankees must be stopped at all costs.  It's going to come down to Dice-K and his gyroball.  It will be his last game in the Sox uniform and we will all remember him for it.

I'm kidding.  The guy's going to spit the bit and we'll curse him forever.  Maybe he can carry Bobby V.'s luggage when they leave.

I, for one, volunteer to stand guard at the MA border and/or ports of entry to prevent Bobby V from setting foot in our great Commonwealth.

I don't know, initial scouting indicates Dalek Thay has big holes in his swing and really had troubles with sliders.  He owns the inside of the plate, though.

I can see sending Bard to Pawtucket, but bringing in McDonald in his place?  Look at his ERA.  40.5.  Yikes.

Oh, man, Celebrations.  I would sneak in there when I was in High School.

I completely agree.  It's a terrible way to end an amazing hall of fame caliber career.  It would have been much more fitting to have his last pitch be a walk-off homer by Big Papi at Fenway.  ;-)  A classy player like Mo should go out on his own terms, not because of a freak injury.

Remember "D Cell Battery Day" in 1978?  I bet Graig Nettles will never forget it.

Nice, they are trying to run Big Papi out on a rail too. Four examples over two years is not a trend. How would you like to see that on your review at work? I don't think this typical behavior for Ortiz.

You know, with the beard Lowrie looks more like Bruce Springsteen from "The Wild, The Innocent, and the E Street Shuffle" than the silver age joker. Just sayin'.
