My standout thought as the Sox took the field last night was one I've had a few times since the trading deadline - just who are these guys, anyway?

Man, I hear that. It just seems like a different team. A team I still root for...but still.


man, glad i'm not the only one...

It also doesn't help that so many of the new guys are so, uh, "generic" in their appearance. I mean, Jason Bay could probably rob any bank in the country and not bother to wear a mask, and none of the witnesses would be able to identify him later in a lineup.


by "generic" are you perhaps referring to the fact that our team is suddenly, incredibly, blindingly pasty white? cause i've noticed that too, but haven't wanted to go near that issue with a ten-foot pole...

Well, yes and no. They are a lot whiter, but they're also of the "nondescript" variety of whiteness. For example, Youkilis, Pedroia and Varitek are all white. Yet they all look unique. I wouldn't call those guys generic looking.

Some of the new guys, on the other hand, look like a department store mannequins. Not that there's anything wrong with that. It's just harder to feel affection for them in that "rag tag" bunch of "idiots" way that we might have felt for the 2004 or 2007 teams.

Uh, yeah, so I've probably said too much.
