Nice column. Couldn't agree more. Damon was just one guy of many that helped the Sox win over the past 4 years ... and that's all he was. Players are replaceable. Some of them are nice guys, some aren't...but none of that matters. And it's a shame the daily media are like a bunch of seventh graders who get so caught up in personalities they can't or won't see the big picture.


I don't love baseball. I don't love most of today's players. I don't love the owners. I do love, however, the baseball that is in the heads of baseball fans. I love the dreams of glory of 10-year-olds, the reminiscences of 70-year-olds. The greatest baseball arena is in our heads, what we bring to the games, to the telecasts, to reading newspaper reports.

Yes, yes and yes.


Great post.

Schrödinger's cat reference= love.


Oh my God. What is UP with my trackbacks? I only trackbacked you once, I swear. That is INSANE.


lol--i will display them proudly anyway. maybe part of typepad's issues from last week...?


I look like I'm insane!! Also I edited the beginning of the post - maybe that's why?? God forbid I edit, apparently.


No but seriously - great post. I really needed to read it this morning.


thanks. it means a lot to hear that from one of my own favorite bloggers. i'm glad it was helpful and didn't add to the aggravation, which i was kind of worried would happen.

yeah, sometimes i've sent about 50 trackbacks if i republish a post, but it seems totally random as to when it happens.


Oh and my warning to stay away was not addressed to ANYONE who is a Red Sox fan. I don't mind disagreement within the family of Red Sox fans - I just didn't want any gloaters, you know? Just my preference. So speak your mind!!

Foulkie Fan

I am new to your blog site and I really like it. I am a Keith Foulke fan as well and a huge Red SOx fan. I am soooo disappointed in everything that has gone on during the off-season. We will just have to wait and see where all of this takes us. Goooo Sox - ~6 weeks, give or take, until pitchers and catchers report to spring training.


9/26/06: Now we see where it all took us.
F John Henry et al.


awesome. hand in all your red sox paraphernalia and do not buy any tickets next season. put your money where your mouth is and stop calling yourself a red sox fan, if you have been up until now. you obviously know better, so go find something else to do with your time than following a team whose ownership you think should go f themselves.

either that or put your psychic skills to good use, saving lives or something like that. unless, of course, it's 20/20 hindsight you're using--one year into the deal at the end of a season in which many other factors played a part.

but that couldn't be the case, of course. right?
