    Absolutely. If the team is winning, fans will come to the games and they will come to love the Sandy Leons of the baseball world.

    Exactly.

    Even members of the media have their heads up their asses sometimes.

    Yesterday Chad Finn from the Globe made a stupid statement about the Sox payroll being so screwed up that they could not sign a top starting pitcher.

    Of course I had to correct him by stating almost verbatim what Moon has said regarding signing a top pitcher AND still getting a second tier power bat like Morrison or Duda.

    The prick must have known he was wrong because he did not respond. Usually he responds to my provocations!

    He had no chance in this one as I posted all the cap info I had gleaned from Moon.
    "Hating the Yankees like it's a religion since 94'" RIP Mike.


    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    Surely, if we can afford JD, we can afford a solid pitcher and someone like Duda. Morrison might be a bit too expensive, depending on which pitcher we get, but it looks like we could get Darvish & Duda or Cobb (or Lynn) & Morrison for what it appears JD might get.

    Doing this might also allow us to trade ERod mid season, if our rotation looks healthy and we have a big need somewhere (2B? Clean-up?)

    That's the way it should work, but NESN ratings have been dropping even with the team winning the division 2 years in a row. Hopefully the team will be a little more fun to watch with Cora as manager.
