A music loving former Vermonter rabid Red Sox fan stuck deep in the mid-south.

1 year, 5 months ago on Game Time. And a Chance to Get Paid.
Ugh, either salty drives it a mile or strikes out
You know, I don't think Dan Duquette gets enough credit for the 2004 WS victory, but now that he's with the Orioles I like that guy about as much as I do Joe Girardi and Bucky Showalter
Well at least their closer as a 1.67 WHIP
@English Sox Fan @Madraider I'm glad you got to see one of the rare wins this season. I guess anything would look good after toad in the hole or kippers for breakfast...
1 year, 11 months ago on The Chance to Be New York’s Worst Nightmare
@EthanUK Let's see if they can keep it under 5 runs given up next half inning.
@English Sox Fan Holy Fuck....So much for the pitching keeping the shit close eh?
@English Sox Fan How was your first Fenway experience?
So a three game sweep from Toronto.... anybody else think the Sox go from worst to first next year? Lakey comes back to win 18 games to really prove that Beckett was the bad influence? Buchholz puts together a complete solid season finally, Ells stays healthy, smelling a payday, they put Lavarnway at first and let Salty Nuts catch the whole year?
2 years ago on No Home Field Advantage Here
I really like the Fisk idea over Tek, maybe Tek as bullpen coach for a few years. Now the Red Sox brain trust is thinking Mike Scioscia would be a good idea if he's fired from the Angels.

Cody, fucking Ross! He's playing for that 7mm per year payday.

2 years ago on Red Sox & Dodgers Set to Complete Tradezilla
@BB.13 @lb--bb-s brother Give Jenny a chance it's her first year, besides I wanna see her work the Pesky Pole.
@Nikki in Denver Yeah, the Sox would have to rehire Dan Douqutte, fire him and hire a college sophmore to take his place.
@GodzillaJoe I guess I'm all for trading Pedroia and Lester, those lazy fucks couldn't find the time to attend Pesky's funeral.
@hannah82 I hate seeing A-Gon gone, but if that's the price to get a new exciting young team in a couple years, I guess so be it.
@Jennie Apparently he expects Beckett to attempt to start the game tomorrow.
2 years, 1 month ago on Flame On! Red Sox Declare Fire Sale. Maybe.
According to the Globe, the Dodgers take on all but 11.5mm of the salary in the deal.
@KTMFF @BB.13 @YDDE With all of 2 walks in over 100 abs, pass.
@Jennie @Madraider http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/ These guys usually get it right.
@KTMFF @Madraider The fan base pays the bucks, without that there is no Buck Rogers, it's not like ticket prices will go down if they cut payroll under to under 100mm.
@KTMFF @Madraider I get the point of the trade, it frees up money, but the fans will revolt if they don't maintain payroll at atleast 160mm per year.
Maybe they flip all the shit they get from Dodgers, toss in Bradley for King Felix and sign him to stupid money?

I dunno, stick Lavarnway at first, keep Salty, use the money to reup Ells and Pedroia?
@Sox on the Beach After this trade.
@kfish @Madraider Decent until he was traded
Trade isn't gonna be finalized tonight according to WEEI. However, if you want out of Beckett, just let them claim him pull back Gonzo and toss in Punto to sweeten the pot.
I dunno feels like the Sox are getting slightly hosed on another trade.
I'd hate to see Gonzo go, especially after giving up Rizzo to get him
@BB.13 @GarrettCRW @GodzillaJoe Makes one want to bleach one's eyes/
2 years, 1 month ago on I Now Root For Four
I think that inning of baseball encapsulates the whole season for the Red Sox.
@Section 36 @Madraider Do you not agree that this year Sox have a serious image problem? Whether that is all perception fed by a rabid media or not they blew a chance at getting some good press. On a first place team this would be a minor dust up and cycle out in 24 hours.
@Section 36 In a normal season this could be tolerated, with all the discord the uneven play, the apparent selfishness the Sox had an opportunity for a bit of good will, some positive press by all attending. The fact that they don't understand there is an image problem is disturbing. The front office chartered buses to ease congestion. There were no "leaders"beyond Papi from the team there, no Pedroia, no Gonzalez, nor Beckett or Lester for that matter.
@AntiHeroV @Madraider It's not just this current roster, ballplayers come and go, and good riddance to most of this bunch, but it's the history, I can't abandon baseball or the teams of Tris Speaker, Cy Young, Smoky Joe Wood, through the lean 20's-30's to Ted Williams, Bobby Doer, Dom Dimaggio and then Yaz all the way up to the live games I've seen with Rice, Evans, Greenwell, Nomar, Nixon, to this sorry group of apes that currently sullies the history and memories of these players. I wish a pox on all that didn't attend that funeral, but I will not give up on the Red Sox.
This will never happen with me, the Red Sox are still my team. Even if there are 21 self-absorbed assholes on the roster.
@English Sox Fan Doesn't seem to make much sense to me, pieced together a serviceable rotation got positive results from Morales, Cook, and Miller. He couldn't help Beckett getting old and fat, Lester not seeming to care and Bard and Buchholz losing their shit for half the season.

@GarrettCRW Just a hope that maybe those asshat owners would pick up their game a bit.
2 years, 1 month ago on Just When I Thought You Couldn’t Make Me Watch Anymore…
@RedSoxFan4Life Yes, lets hope it thins out the pink hats, NESN does something else besides infomertials 23 hours a day.
@BB.13 Especially down the stretch last year when Tek couldn't hit a cat in a Chinese restaurant
@RedSoxFan4Life Hope he strings together 5 good starts between here and the end of the season so you might trade him and not have to eat any money.
@RedSoxFan4Life Pitched decent in spots, in others he was semi infuriating.
@Nikki in Denver Anybody but 'Tek
@Nikki in Denver There's a good reason why their firing Mike Sciosa, should have happened years ago.
So Bobby V. gets canned at the end of this season, Millsy just got canned by the Astros in a headscratcher, so the Sox hire Millsy?
The fuck, that pitch wasn't even close to a strike umop
