One of your favorites, Pat Gillick, is rumored to be interested in being a GM again and Philly was giving him a look. Wonder is Boston will do the same? :-?

They went for broke in 04 and its clear they won't have anything close to that team again soon, since the pitching nothing is close to what it was and the FA market can't correct that.

Damon's going to demand more money and years than he's worth.
Manny wants out again.
The bullpen needs another overhaul and Timlin will cost them.
They need another starter.

If Damon and Manny leave, this team is in a whole lot of trouble, because they already cannot pitch.

Just my 2 cents.


Wow I agree with blankman for once.

I want to add that everyone leaves Boston unhappy. Pedro, Clemens, Nomar, Theo, (soon to be Manny). This is a trend.


Why though? Whose fault is it?


the idiot fans ...

If that's the case then I would think that means Towers is Boston's new GM....which might be the case even if Theo doesn't go there.

I still say Theo takes a year off.

to be honest, I am about ready to see Towers go ... :-o
somebody needs to take the fall for this and past seasons.
If we lose Trevor. I'll be the one on the news with a picket sign in front of the Padres offices.

Wasn't it the Padre fans in the Rivera/Hoffman thread who claimed how much tougher Hoffman had it in the NL West?


Yes it was. But they stopped with that argument after someone posted some almost comical stats to compare the two. The NL west is a joke.

The point was ... That all of the teams are competitive in the NL West. Outside of Colorado, Trevor Hoffman does not get to close against the annual doormats known as the Orioles, Rays and Jays

another point that was missed by you guys .... my god .. I think you all have ADD too somtimes ... I kid I kid, well maybe not in strasils case ... ;-7 (as soon as I saw that post i knew he was going to show up how funny)

Well that wasn't a very smart post now was it?

Total runs
Blue Jays 775 8/30
D-Ray 750 12/30
Orioles 729 15/30

NL Worst
Rockies 740 14/30
D-Backs 696 23/30
Dodgers 685 26/30
Padres 684 27/30
Giants 649 29/30

IMHO it would be easier to close against teams that can't score runs.

Yes, because the NL West's record (without the Padres record included) had been better than the AL East's record (without the Yankees included) for quite some time since the comparison was Hoffman's opponents vs. Rivera's opponents. Once you add in the Padres and Yankees records, that's not the case.

Nice try at distorting my words though ;-D
