Goodbye to Terry Francona

I’ve been meaning to find time to write this for a few days. Here goes in enthymematic form: The collapse was historic. A historic collapse requires blame. Blaming is often not a rational process. Terry Francona is willing to accept … Continue reading

Adrian Beltre? Seriously?

Ok, I have no idea what Theo Epstein hopes to accomplish in 2010. Because Adrian Beltre just screams “one-year-wonder-during-the-hight-of-the-steriods-era.” I know its only a one-year deal, and that the Red Sox are angling to trade for Adrian Gonzalez during this … Continue reading

Joe, They Don’t Deserve Ya
