Re: [All] Red Sox 2012

It's really starting to mess with work too.

Explaining what NESN+ is and why it won't be used this year.

Explaining Baseball to a Brit that proceeds to call it "Rounders" and a Girls School game. ( Brit got hit in the head by a Whiffleball. By a New Jersey Yankees fan). That's a Top Ten for the season.

Mathematical Probabilities. Pontificated Explained by a Math(s) Professor in the lobby.

Explaining the game to the Russian kids. In Russian.

Explaining the Red Sox to a couple from some rectangle state.

That's a lot a 'splainin' to do!

So....

Is anyone actually watching any of the games or paying attention to the standings?

While I can't peer inside the heads of the team, on the surface I agree with you. There's been something rotting from the inside coming out. This terrific collapse started before Francona had even been pushed out.

I stopped watching when I realized important players didn't give a crap and not much can be done because of contract agreements. (Injury list anyone?)
These high paid INJURY guys need to go so we can get some new talent on the field. But currently can't be afforded.

7 games left. 20.5 games back. I think we can say that it's over.

Yup, it's over. It would be Pink-Hattish to give up though.
Worst season in recent memory, OK, I remember back when....
Is Bobby V to blame? He tried some new stuff. The man has passion getting tossed from a few games! Not quite fake mustache and sunglasses effort but his heart was in the game.

My best memory of the year? I took a day off work to bring MOM in for medical tests. Afterwards, I rode my bike to the local bah and watched the 100th ceremony. All the greats and that guy that played 1 game were there.

Next yeah.

Say it with pride and the proppah local New England accent!
Drop the AH!

NEXT YEAH!!!

You know, depending on what happens for the last 6 games, NYY could become the wild card or even worse become 3rd in the AL East. If the FailSox lose against Baltimore then win against the NYY and then Tampa winning most of their games, there could be some big games with Tampa Bay being only 5 games behind right now.

Heretic! Heretic! Heretic!

Frostbite started the thread, I think it's only fitting that he asks for it's closing.

The Soxxies can still be a spoiler.

“The job obviously wasn't what I set out to do,” Valentine told
reporters on Wednesday (bostonherald.com). “When you don't accomplish what you set out to do, you feel like you haven't done a good enough job. It's simple. Not much I would've done differently, I don't think, other than I think I would've kept the beer in the clubhouse. I could've used it after a few games.”

Beer after work is important.

So, do you think Varitek would be a good manager? Would he even take the job?

I don't see Tek getting the job or wanting the job. If I had to take a guess I'd put my money on Tim Bogar.

It's going to be interesting to see what happens with Tek but I don't see him managing. Translator/ambassador between owners/management/players and whomever is hired to be manager.

Keep Papi for another year to keep some consistency.

Bobby did a good job as the fall guy. BEST scene of the season was the ump spitting gum on him.

No need for locking. Just stop posting in it and it will sink away out of sight.

I was at the local Tavern/Pub/Bah, and I saw the win coming.

WHAT?
"I have to go home and watch with my DAD."
GO HOME! WE'LL PAY FOR YA!!!
