the lineup sucks. thank god nixon is back and that we have good pitching. we desperately need crisp back.
Nixon?? If Theo and the Sox are smart,they will dump him following this yr. . This guy is hurt alot and had 1 year of hitting 300. He will never attain 100 rbi's 30 hr. Another case of potential without the production.
Eh fuck sport message boards. Most of the time you get the type of fan who doesn't know what he's talking about on them and they just start saying things without using any facts or thoughtful insight to back what they said up
That being said, though their are a few bumps, our pitching staff kicks ass
Schilling is looking good and what about my boy Papelbon! Keep the wins coming. Coco and Trot will be healthy soon enough. If the rotation keeps it up and Foulke stays in the pen as a setup guy, we're gonna be tough.
Well, I'm off to Beef O'Brady's right up the street here in Fort Myers to watch the game on NESN. Hopefully Clement will actually show up tonight and lower that 9.00 ERA a little bit. And I'm gonna wear my Trot Nixon t-shirt!
it'll be a tough race in the AL this year but I really think the Sox can win it all as long as the offense picks up just a little bit and clement can keep it together
Can you imagine next years rotation? Schilling, Beckett, Lester, Papelbon
Closer - Craig Hansen
Makes me wanna cream myself
i love trot!!!
theo is young and impresses me. i think he has a great eye for talen!
we dont need to spend millions to win a world series
we have great pitching. I believe what it takes to win championships is chemistry
whether it be baseball, basketball or football
you dont need the best of the best
you need quality players that play well together
thats what we had in 2004
thats what the detroit pistons had when they won the championship
thats what it takes to win
i watched a interview with gabe capler...
he said the same thing
we have the one the greatest combo of players
we are gonna do it!
stay healthy sox!!
it will be the sox/yanks again and we will KICK ASS
I know what you're saying but we do spend a ton of money. We've been #2 in payroll the past 5 or so years right behind the Yankees. We're not close to spending Steinbrenner money but we do spend a lot. It takes a lot to sign the caliber of players that Theo brings in.
I think the sox are gonna win it all, if we stay healthy. I dont hateTrot, but no matter how hard he hustles,the numbers have to be there. I'll bet anything that if he ends the season with mediocre #'s he's gone. He will be just like Millar, a great team guy but not enough production.
On another note,what a game last night. Stern with that catch. AWESOME!!

Trot Nixon is nothing like Millar. Nixon can throw and catch. Millar could do neither. Nixon will belt 20-25 dingers and drive in 80-90 and bat .280...Ill take that.
I hope you guys are right and this is the team, but man, the bats got to get hot....you cannot keep winning one run games and relying on the bullpen...it will catch up with you.
Will Bard figure out how to catch Wakefield tonight? The way the last 2 games have gone, that might not matter anyway. Where's Mirabelli when we need him. Nothing against Bard, but Doug really had the knuckler figured out. Hopefully he'll get it figured out soon.
Well, I guess not. Another run scores on a passed ball. Mirabelli had 6 passed balls last year in 43 games. Bard has 6 passed balls this year in 4 games! (5 before tonight) This is getting ridiculous!

So far so good for the Sox. Let's see how long both Schilling and Beckett can stay healthy before we make any early fall plans. It does feel good to have a healthy lead over the yanks so far, but again they hadn't played 8 times already by now like last year.
Boston Dirt Dogs has learned that the Red Sox may now be the frontrunner in the Roger Clemens sweepstakes. Clemens reportedly said Wednesday he'd like to put No. 21 on his back and finish his career where he started. The Yankees are supposedly his second choice even though owner George Steinbrenner hasn't yet made Roger an offer; however, Roger expects him to at some point. The Astros may have moved up to Roger's third choice while the Texas Rangers, who made a great presentation, are not generating any real excitement in the Clemens camp.
According to MLB.com, Clemens said Wednesday that physically, his body feels pretty good, and that his arm is "not too far away" after working out with son Koby, an Astros prospect playing at Class A Lexington, for five days recently. Clemens also said he is enjoying retirement and isn't ready to think about pitching again at this point. "I understand the Red Sox side of it, the history with New York and I understand what's happened here [in Houston] the last few years," Clemens said on Wednesday. "Again, that's just not something I'm thinking about just yet. I'm going to pass on those questions right at this point. I've not decided to go there there just yet. I'm getting updates and calls from the other three teams. They're very flattering. If I decide to go in that direction, I'll get myself mentally prepared for that."
