4 Years...$48 million.....

Sound familiar? Right you are! The exact numbers that Johnny Damon wanted to remain in Boston in his familiar centerfield. These are the numbers the Red Sox are dangling to LA outfielder J.D. Drew and his agent, the busy Scott Boras. And the Sox and Boras are said to be close to making this official. Last year Drew hit .286 with 20 taters and 100 RBI. Those numbers are close to his career statistics.
What to do with Wily Mo? Why, what I suggested countless times in the past. Get rid of the bum! I know, I know, he's only a kid at 24, but he's played baseball for enough years for the observer, me, and others, to realize that the defensive skills that the gifted are born with just aren't there. He is worthless in the field, any field anytime anywhere, domed stadium or not, little league field or big league ballpark. It has been rumored that the Sox have had discussions regarding Brad Lidge, and WMP is said to be involved in those. As I said, any OTHER team. Also the Sox have focused conversation on Julio Lugo. But right now the closest there is to breaking news is the J.D. Drew acquisition. Close is nice. And the Sox are at full throttle in what is to be an off season of money spending. Go for it Theo, Larry, Tom and John. Just do it!

I am all for the FO spending the big bucks for 2007 !

I still wish we had been smart enough to keep Mr Johnny Damon ... but, uh ... that's just me ... sorry.

And WMP ?!? Get rid of him.
