A story surfaced after the Shoppach trade that apparently Shoppach had used Gonzalez's phone to text managed which was apparently his big thing that came out in the previous report. And from what I've read about Shoppach being a douche, I don't doubt it. As for Adrian's involvement in anything else, I'm honestly not too sure.
Fucking Pedroia though, I've gotten very sick of him this year.
Sox have been an embarrassment these last 2 seasons. there have been so many bad signings the last couple years. Lackey and Crawford being the most recent. Never understood the constant bashing of Daisuke when Beckett after the world series wins has not done anything good at all. Lester has been a better pitcher than him most of the time.
So awful that Boston has been a baseball city the last century or whatever should have easily been a Football town after the emergence and dominance of the Pats. Shame that it will probably be a Pats city when Brady and Bill duo might end in a few years.
Dunn last year had 11 HR's and 0 off of left handed pitchers. This year alone, he has 14 HR's off of lefties. His batting average is .207, while his slugging is nearly 2.5 times that amount at .508. Another remarkable stat: Dunn has as many singles (38) as he has HR's this year (38). He's also struck out 188 times.
I read a comment from a Dodgers fan that said De La Rosa has the potential to a decent pitcher.
Hoping the Sox can sign a new starter in the offseason. Doesn't need to be a big star, just someone dependable.
De La Rosa and Webster are the two big prospects that the Red Sox get back. Sands and De Jesus are considered to be possible bench guys. Sands might have a shot to be at least a platoon guy with another player. Webster is projected to be at least a possible #2 starter someday. He is comparable to Derek Lowe in terms of his pitching. De La Rosa is the wild card. He too could be a top of the line starter someday or even a setup or possible closer with his stuff. He is the top prize. Loney is just a rental.
Brye, mark my words, Lackey will be that guy. I actually think he could get back to his Angels form. I think he will help next year.
