Yea, I am very pleased with how they have played this season, imagine if they had never hired Valentine, and got Farrell right away!

A guy called the sports station this morning and said they hired him on purpose to be sooo bad that no matter what john farrell did he would be better.


I credit the front office for the "trade' and for bringing in the players they did, but i certainly don't think they hired Valentine just so Farrell would look better when he showed up.

20 games over 500 going into a weekend matchup against oakland, and we will be in first place at the allstar break no matter what happens.


 stunning, just absolutely stunning


wow - that's got to up there among the leaders

we can get to .500 tonight (again) with a win

still climbing that hill

won 3 of 4 from the Nats though

if we can somehow get a lock down 8th inning guy and a RF then we may actually have something to work with

we're actually in better shape than you'd think - we're 5 out of the 2nd wild card (Reds) and 1-1/2 from 2nd in the division (Nats)

I can feel the hope rising again; Its a viscous cycle 77

they ahve been pitching well, you still have some trouble scoring runs, if you could get a few more runs on the board you would be fine.

soo you need a little power from somebody not named brown in other words

well we have Ruf now but he's only been here a week and has hit 1 HR. Utley still has some power and we get Eric Kratz back soon (backup catcher, probably going to give Ruiz a run for his money soon).

Delmon Young (as a local reporter put it) is not friends with the outfield. And he make Ryan Howard, bum knee and all, look like a fast runner. We need a RF.

I do too, or with francona too, valentine is not the kind of manager that works in the MLB, at least not with a tem like the red sox.

they need a person like farrell or tito that keeps things in house and communicates with the team, not a supreme leader attitude like Valentine had

we've achieved .500 at the All Star Break

at the cost of one centerfielder who broke his ankle on Saturday Sad can't we catch a freaking break? Now instead of getting a RF to compliment the team we NEED another OF gah 

One the plus side, the bullpen is getting a little better. Its still an adventure but they played 3 extras and won 2.

The game I went to was the longest - 13 innings and it was over at 1am. I'm still trying to catch up on my sleep.

Tough luck, about the bad break (sorry...had to... tongue  )

Well we end on a good note...Verlander has 6 2/3 innings of a no-hitter...second time this year he's taken a no-no into the seventh inning....more important it was a solid outing...who cares if he doesn't pitch in the ASG? I sure don't...he was able to pitch well in the steambath that we had here yesterday...he always has been a better hot weather pitcher...bodes well for our second half, if he can get back to his normal consistency.

Why not let Mariano close?? The best closer in the last 20 yrs, he should be closing.

They were afraid of blowing the lead and not using him. I don't think they needed to worry tonight. The NL did nothing tonight.

right now it's been lackey, Doubront and every now and then a decent showing from whomever the throw out there.

they cannnot depend on scoring 8-12 runs a game and expect to be in it .

i think they make a trade for another reliever, and maybe a fill in or two. Nothing major, i do not think they will empty the minors to make a splash, they are done with that.

i really think they have changed the way they will do business from here on out, sign a few vets in the off season for short term managable contracts, and fill in with young homegrown talent,

they have seen what can be done with homegrown talent from teams like tampa, st louis etc and if you develop talent, you have a competitive team for years, not just A year

depends on wht they offer, i say 4 years at most, maybe 15 million a year, add some incentives for steals or avg or games played to up it to 16 -17, a but someone else will offer more.

I hope they give him a good offer, since they dumped all the massive salaries last season, but after what they paid Crawford, he is gonna want his share, which I completely understand.

I'm still hoping that some of these big bust deals will start to curb some of these contracts

of course, I thought that once the Yankees went on a budget, it would curb them too.

I don't think you have to worry about us and Jacoby - he's a little too expensive for us, not to mention Boras.

if he wants to stay he will, if he doesn't someone will offer him enough to leave.

i'm sure they would like to keep him, but I doubt they go down that long 20 million a year road with him.


he's worth 15-16 mil a year for 4 maybe 5 years, not much more.
