Meet The New Boss.Same As The Old Boss....and Trouble In Mota City.

Theo Epstein has concluded his bizarre and unprecedented 360 degree circumnavigation around the baseball world by returning to his job as general manager. He is back and will do what he used to do, how he used to do it. Good for us. Good for the club. Not good for other teams contending with the Red Sox, because the Sox can only be better because of his return.
Much more disturbing are reports out of Cleveland that ex-Marlin pitcher Mota has failed his physical, or come close enough to failing to raise the hackles of the Cleveland powers that be. This is a pitcher the Marlins added to the deal with the Red Sox because of Sox concerns with Josh Beckett's arm. Damaged goods? I hope not. But any talk of Manny Delcarmen replacing Mota, or being added to the deal in order for Coco to patrol Fenway's centerfield should be considered blasphemy. Delcarmen is a future star, a guy with an arm who can throw heat and get batters out. His up side has no limits. Please, front office, DO NOT PART WITH THIS MANNY. I repeat. DO NOT PART WITH THIS MANNY. Cleveland wants this deal as much, if not more, than we do. Don't bow down and take it in the rear, Sox FO. You've looked foolish long enough. Hear me? More later....

Hi Reb. And yes, there are many young arms out there for us. Such a treat to even be able to say those words! But Manny D. is going to be someone SPECIAL. You wait. it's just a feeling I have right now, but I'm famous for those type of feelings coming true. Hey, want any Lotto numbers? Thanks for the comment.
Go back a few posts, Reb, until you see the link for the taxi driver recreation. It is a real film type thing that was so much fun and I wanted to make sure you didn't miss it. Or anyone else. It's back therepurac within the last week. bye.
