I hear you Rick.. Beckett is making it very hard to forgive for his role in last year's meltdown, isn't he? Maybe if he looks really good they'll be able to trade him for a boatload of talent, but there'd have to be a #2 starter coming back..I think that is wishful thinking..

The rest of them do seem to be genuinely interested in making amends..I might be okay with the players, but I'm not sure I'll ever be okay with whoever in the front office decided to trash Tito as he was walking out the door gracefully and as their fall guy, so I just continue to dislike all of them.. Still not sure I can put money into those coffers anytime soon, though.

But I do love those quotes, and will be on the lookout for some to bring back here..

I just read that Yaz quote a couple days ago. I was looking for a new signature. Cool. Yaz is my baseball hero.

FORT MYERS, Fla. — In a very Yankee-like move, the Red Sox have had inspirational quotes painted on the walls of the clubhouse at JetBlue Park.

One is from Ted Williams. It says: "Ballplayers are not born great. They're not born great hitters or pitchers or managers, and luck isn't a big factor. No one has come up with a substitute for hard work."

The other is from Carl Yastrzemski: "I think about baseball when I wake up in the morning. I think about it all day and I dream about it at night. The only time I don't think about it is when I'm playing it.”

Yaz worked out in the off season before it was routine. He was a worker. He got everything out of his body that was given to him. Ted was a freak of nature. God just doesn't gift people with his ability to see and react like that very often. He was a superstar before we used the term, he was an ace pilot in two wars, a world class fisherman. He was John Wayne, but in real life.

The 2011 wall reads, chicken and beer in the clubhouse during games doesn't win championships...

40 days to opening day, bring on the Tigers, I'm ready to go. Time to get rid of that train wreck called September 2011. (I really wish Beckett was gone though)

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.
