turn out the lights, the party's over 

has the glow from 04 worn off already. this weekend was absolutely pathetic. the kids came up with big goose eggs ('cept for Pap), the stopper of the future (Beckett) looked like Samuel Beckett on the mound, and the lineup looked like they couldn't beat the North Shore Spirit. To top it off they got their heads handed to them by the one that got away in CF. I'm starting to lose faith in the wunderkid GM. How bad is it looking now not signing Pedro, Lowe, or Damon? How bad is the Clement signing looking? Wily Mo Pena? Beckett's extension? Has Beckett beaten anybody over 500 since June? No. He's beaten up on KC and the NL, while being slapped around by the Yanks and Tigers. if he's the future of this rotation, we're fucked. I'm sorry, I know they're trying to build for the future, but right now none of the moves they've made look good. Would Roy Oswalt have been better than Jon Lester? Definitely! Does it look like Hanson, Del Carmen, and Van Buren are going to be able to handle the pressure of pitching in a Yanks Sox series at Fenway late in the season? A resounding NO! The only one who should have been off limits tradewise should have been Papelbon. Everyone else should've been fair game. I know it's a tough weekend, but this is not a knee jerk reaction. When you have a line up of Alex Cora, Mike Lowell, Mark Loretta going agains Rodriguez, Jeter, Giambi, Damon, et. al., what do you think the results are going to be??? Man oh man. Thank god the Patriots start in a couple of weeks!

shit 

how much longer is fran-coma going to rely on that piece of shit seanez? he has done nothing for this team. everytime he comes in it's a guaranteed run being scored, if not more than one. 25 hits, 12 BB, 11 ER, 14R, 4HR in 23IP. his era with runners in scoring position is 6.43. and fran-coma still continues to go to him in clutch situations. jesus h.!


fran-coma has to be one of the worst managers i've seen in terms of handling his staff. he lets people go too long, doesn't get guys up in the bullpen on time, or gets them up and leaves them lingering out there. what the fuck?????

also, is anybody else completely down on varitek? i mean, that fucking error the other night started the whole downward spiral. how fucking stupid is he? has he been playing in this league for almost 9 years or what? he threw the ball around like a little leaguer, then leaves the fucking plate uncovered!? that set the tempo for the whole fucking night.

i'm so sick of this fucking team.



although i'm sure that'll change. lol
