« Kansas City sends relief to Boston in the form of their baseball team | Main | Groundhog Day »

July 18, 2006



All depends on if you're a glass half-empty or half-full person, I suppose.

Half-full here (but you probably knew that anyway ;-)).

I think this comes back to the point the other day about what we are expecting from the season. Given the fragile state of the Sox rotation right now, two wins - however nail-biting - are two wins. We're hanging on to the AL East lead by our fingertips, but as things stand it's quite possible that neither the Sox nor the MFY nor the BJs will run away with this division, so staying there or thereabouts is no bad thing. Maybe we can scratch and scrape our way into October.

Given the Wakefield situation, what I don't want to see is for the Sox to mortgage the farm in order to have some measure of success this year. July 31 is looming, and I keep hearing Dontrelle Willis' name mentioned, but I don't want to see him in Boston if it means giving up any of our top prospects. I hope we can get by one way or another with what we have. If not, them's the breaks, but we sure as hell will be in a good position to contend over several seasons to come.
