brilliant post!


hey thanks! :-)


my dad thinks that nobody can really know what happened, and that Lugo's technical acquittal means he should be given a clean slate

My tendency is to agree with your Dad. But as soon as I say that, I'm also wondering how much of that is a desire to try to give people the benefit of the doubt and how much of it is a subconscious attempt to make rooting for the laundry as palatable as possible. The Red Sox don't have a Barry Bonds on their team, so they're fairly easy to root for - in my short time as a Sox fan, Lugo is the first example of someone I can't root for without at least asking some fundamental questions.


no go on the Helton deal. neither side was willing to budge. thank God. however, i am hearing disturbing rumors that the front office has also considered offering Lowell to San Diego for reliever Scott Linebrink. i would like to know why on earth they look like they are trying to pawn Lowell off on anyone when it turned out that getting him was the best part of the Beckett deal & they still haven't done anything about acquiring a closer?!


dawn, i'm def wondering the same thing. the best-case scenario there would be that they could pick up somebody who could be a pawn in a multi-team deal for a closer, but it doesn't seem like linebrink would be it. no idea why they're trying so hard to get rid of lowell, either. like you said, best part of the beckett deal.

But on the bright side, Curt is in negotiations to pitch another year for the Sox!
