  1. Being a first year manager plus managing a NL game finally caught up to Cora. I don't have a problem taking J.D. out for a pinch runner.

    But you save Benintendi to be that runner and replace him in left. They played the second game basically with Holt in left, Vasquez at first. I would

    have also switched Pearce out for Moreland. And Moreland is swinging like he is starting a lawn mower, he keeps pulling off the ball, been doing it since Aug.!

    Then you have a better lineup in that last 8 innings. I also believe tonight it will be E-Rod as the starter, he only faced one batter.

    If I was Cora I would have put Pomeranz in the 10th and give up the game, your up 2-1. Good news is that the Dodgers had trouble beating a dreadful lineup from the 10th to the 18th. Betts and Bogaerts need to step it up. Betts was dreadful.


  2. http://espn.go.com/e...rnick-birth-mom

    would communicating with your birth mother be disrespecting your legal mother????

    No, I have a friend who does not want to meet his birth mother, yet he has met his birth sister and she has visited him and stayed at his house. (his birth mom/sister live overseas)

    It was nice that his parents tried to keep contact thru letters and pics, open adoption is the way to go.

    My wife and I adopted a baby boy 3 years ago, he just turned 4 and we have an agreement with the birth parents that they see him once a year......we thought it was best for our son

    to know his birth parents. The first visit went well, but this past summer they did not show up , hopefully they will make it this summer !

  3. S.I. is reporting that Francona will be launched. Seems premature to me, but they're saying it's a done deal. There's even some speculation bubbling up about the possibility of Joe Torre taking the Red Sox reins. How weird would that be?

    I would love to see Joe Torre with the Sox, also the Sox brass likes Bud Black but he is tied up

    thru 2013.

  4. See you on the 2012 MLB Season thread :)


    They should have fired Francona for the continuous spitting ;)

    Seriously, maybe it's because I'm European, but I find that habit disgusting. Is it part of the folklore?? For me it takes away a lot of fun when watching MLB games on cable TV here.

    I have to respect Dan's frustration at this point. Still, I can't imagine when the pitchers and catchers report next Spring that he'll be able to refrain from a comment or two. Baseball gets in your blood. It would be awfully hard to just walk away.

    With respect to spitting, that's a chewing tobacco thing. If you've ever tried it (and I did once) you'll realize quickly that spitting is the only viable option. The last thing in the world you'd want to do is swallow. Trust me on this.

    Francona doesn't use chewing tobacco, what he does that is gross, he takes the bubble gum out of his mouth

    and adds more gum and twists and grinds it with his fingers,then puts it back into his mouth.

    He does this constantly.

    It seems after the ownership meeting with Francona everyone left with out making a public comment ....so maybe they

    are giving Francona the weekend to decide whether he stays.

    Knowing that the certain pitchers (on their off days) were drinking beer in the clubhouse during games is pretty bad.

    Francona talked to them about it ,but you got to wonder why he didn't ban alcohol from the clubhouse.

  5. You all deserve a final comment from me.

    I told you they were fucked in April. I repeated myself about two weeks ago. I was RIGHT.

    I've taken a long hard look at things and determined that baseball is not worth the mental or emotional energy I've given it. It is time to take a huge step away from it. There must be better ways to waste my time for the rest of my life and I am going to find them and pursue them. I already have a good idea of alternatives. Reading. Listening to music in the evening. Talking to my wife. Not obsessive worry about unimportant things like what free agent signs with which team or who won or lost.

    In short, you won't find another post from me on an MLB related thread again.*

    * With the sole exception of any discussion of Roger Clemens' perjury trial next spring, which I regard as a law and order, right and wrong issue rather than being MLB-related.

    Wow,that's not good your not even a Pink Hatter...we were hoping to just lose the Pink Hats not the die hards.

  6. Wow--that might've been the most incredible night of regular-season baseball that I've ever followed in my life.

    You are right that was a great night of baseball, but lets face it if the Yankees played all

    their regulars and put MO in at the end , the Rays would have lost too.

    What about Crawford, he can't catch that ball?

    Manny could!

    Seriously,Crawford may be the best all round athlete on the club and he dives for the ball as if it's a hand grenade.

    Yankees earned the right to play the game the way they did...and I'm sure some of them enjoyed seeing the Red Sox not make the playoffs by their loss.

    Fine , Colts did the same thing with the Jets and how did that turn out ?

    Reports are that Francona has been FIRED!...i am sure they will say it was amicable.
