    Henry getting booed at winter weekend right now.

    Man that was tough. John Henry, asked about the #RedSox ticket prices, "baseball players are expensive."

    Loud boos in response and Sam Kennedy has to step in and rescue him after he can barely get a word in afterwards.

    I think he deserves another chance at the plate- maybe not with the Sox, since we have Casas and Turner, now.

    His D is horrific. Maybe, trying him in LF might be the best idea, but we already have 18 players where LF is their best position.

    Fans paid $50 for the day, or $95 for the weekend to do it. One said thatís dedication, and conviction. Thatís Red Sox Nation.

    Yes, we basically lost 2 FT SP'ers with 26 GS from Hill, 23 from Wacha and 20 from Nate, but what the half empty guys fail to see is that we added Kluber, and more from Whitlock & Bello and also have the 3rd SP'er to replace, which should be very easy to improve upon:
    14 Winckowski 5.89
    12 Crawford 5.47
    5 Seabold 11.29
    3 Davis 5.47
    That's 34 awful starts and Sale, Paxton, Kluber, Bello, Whitlock and maybe Houck, Mata and Walter to fill up that half of the glass.

    BTW, I'm only saying we should significantly improve on a last place team and NOT winning any WS ring.
    No one suggested the glass is empty.

    The headline of a Peter Gammons piece Friday at The Athletic: Ten years later, the 2013 Red Sox remind us that anything is possible:

    You suggested thinking the glass was just half full was stretching it.

    We will be better, next year.

    This year could be the problem.

    Or not.

    Cora said plan is to start Arroyo at 2b and Kike at SS to start the year.
    There will be a race to the IL with those two
    Hal sucks

    And can they get there before Judge?

    It does seem like a recipe for disaster.
    Championships since purchase by John Henry group: Red Sox 4 Yankees 1

    The Red Sox are 8-1 in their last 9 postseason games against the Yankees.

    True that.

    My present obsession is signing Andrus, of course...

    Andrus is the easiest and obvious target.

    But even if the Sox decide it’s Hernandez/Arroyo, ok. There are good things about that combo. But then who is the utility infielder?

    The shocking part is he’s picking on Kike’s health.

    Kike has played in 80% of his team’s games 5 times in the last 6 years. Judge and Stanton have reached that level a total of 6 times in the past 6 years.

    Oh and now the Yankees have Carlos Rodon!! Yes he should get over all those pesky injuries that derailed his 20s and be nothing but healthy in his 30s. After all, doesn’t time heal all wounds? Or does that not apply to actual physical injuries and the aging process?

    Interesting that Cora thinks our trio at CF/2B/SS will provide more power.

    No wonder Xander wasn't extended. Let me have it!

    I am with Moon. We will be better.
    I write fictional stories in my spare time. So don't fact check me. Better?
