Nature of the Business 

What is the deal with players bitching when their name comes up in trade talks, or even in rumors?  I mean come on, that is the nature of the business right?  A team signs a pitcher to a 5 year contract, three years into the contract they find themselves in need of a shortstop.  That is just the way things work.  The wants and needs of all teams change year to year,  month to month and even day to day.  I understand that players may want to stay with one team, I get that.  They seem to take it as a personal affront.  "Why are they trading me?  The owners aren't loyal.  They promised me they wouldn't trade me." yadda yadda yadda, blah blah blah.   Get over it.   Take your 20+ million dollar contracts and cram it.

too true 

from a peter gammons chat on espn today:
Coleman (Braintree): How long do you think they'll suspend David Ortiz?
Peter Gammons: (2:45 PM ET ) My guess is five games and have the suspension reduced to three. They should suspend that umpiring crew for two months after watching three games of incompetence.
(and) Mike Sociacia should demand that the entire crew be optioned to Triple A for his ejection. 

quick pic 

from the june 24th game against the twins...

i took that with my digital camera thru a pair of binoculars.

is this it? 

are we even going to see nomar in a sox uniform again?

nomar to the cubs who'll send prospects to the diamondbacks who'll send the beeg unit to the sox...

as great as nomar's been playing, fuck, pedro-johnson-schilling, who can beat that?? who wouldn't want that?

Rocket fizzles out in All-Star splashdown. 

Am I the only one who took pleasure in "Rocket Roger" getting taken to school in the All-Star game? I loved it, was so happy. I don't hate him as much as when he was a Yankee but he is still a jackass. A very good pitcher....but still a jackass.

speed damon!

could we... 

trade lowe and francona to the drays for pinella?

three-way trade chatter 

from the dirt dogs site...

Boston Red Sox would get: Odalis Perez and Carlos Delgado
Toronto Blue Jays would get: Cesar Izturis and minor-league pitcher
Los Angeles Dodgers would get: Nomar and BK Kim

supposed to be announced sometime today.
after nomar in the dugout last night, it really wouldn't surprise me, and its obvious the sox need some kind of a change.

but isn't delgado on the DL ?


What the hell? Why do we do this to ourselves every god damn year? We go in with high hopes and end up with crushed dreams every fucking year. We will never learn. I know it is only (not even) half way through the season. After a series like that, it is just so disheartening.

To hell with the RedSox
To hell with Pedro, Nomar and Millar with his KFC
To hell with all their whiny bitching.

See you in the Wildcard (fingers crossed)
