I thoroghly believe that we have great players. I also believe that the TEAM needs work. This season showed some serious problems with what was going on in the clubhouse. Other than Pedroia, I never heard another player, management or the owners do anything other than point fingers and blame others for the bad.
I still think that this will be a growth year. It's going to take some time for the players and coaches to get on the same page. There may be some changes that the players won't like. I have a bad feeling that there will be a few players we never thought would leave that get traded.
Could be they have a great year. Could be they bring home another pennant. I'd love to see it. I will stand on the rooftops and yell to the world that I was wrong. Could be, I'm still a bit raw from this season to not feel a bit deflated. Either way, I stand behind them cheering on every game.

GC, I humbly disagree. This team is loaded and ready to win now. Outfield: Crawford will be much more like himself next year, very good; Els a stud; and they need a right handed hitting rightfielder (no stud, just reliable, unlike JD). Infield: stud at first; stud at second; short ok, but could improve on Scotter; maybe Youk at third (or DH if Papi not re-signed). Solid at catcher with Salty (probaly pickupa new backup if Tec gone). This team can score with anyone. They need another starter; middle relief solid as anyone else; and may have to pickup a closer (which there are plenty of) if Pap is gone. This team is real good now.

You must be careful how you walk and where you go, for there are those following you who will set their feet where yours are set.

to be honest, I thought he was going to leave last year. I had heard some rumors at the end of the season and wasn't too suprised. Since he's the one who contracted the players who performed the worst... DiceK, Crawford, Lackey, Jenks, they have to blame someone, and his contract is easier to cancel.

I love Theo for getting us the players that broke the curse in '04, but more than half of that team was in place before he took over. There might be a couple more ugly years before the boys get their act together again. But I'll still love 'em!! Win or lose...

What's happening with the Sox? They're falling apart. I really didn't think Theo would leave....

It is certainly nice to have some positive press about now.
