Re: 2009 Boston Red Sox: Reclaiming the AL East

red sox will make some serious moves during the season IMO...i mean its 100% that peavy and halladay are going to be moved so red sox should b involved there. Especially if Penny and Smoltz dont work out as planned

Lugo needs surgery, and lowrie is for sure the future. Biggest story I think is how will Penny stack up?

Re: 2009 Boston Red Sox: Reclaiming the AL East

In brighter news, I took today off to go to the game, stayed home and did nothing, and my boss said I can take tomorrow off to go to the game. Win/Win!

Anyone else going?

Walking Jason **** Bartlett on a bunch of curveballs is not such a good idea.

Varitek's two outs were both actually fairly well hit.

Can anyone else not imagine LM working? I just imagined you were independently wealthy somehow which is what allowed you wander around the country watching Red Sox games and clandestinely taking pictures of random women, sort of like a 2+2 version of Kramer.

really hope i'm not cringing as much at varitek this season, but it shouldn't be too big a deal if it happens, pitching depth ftw
