All I'm maintaining is that the Sox had a better chance winning the WS with Manny in their lineup than Jason Bay. I'm not saying that it would have guaranteed them the win; I'm not saying that there weren't other reasons they lost; just that Manny would have given them a better shot.
I don't see that as really so controversial.
im just sick of people saying that the sox would have been better with manny. if i remember correctly, the sox had their highest winning percentages in august and september, with the lowest being in july. what does this mean? whatever you want it to mean.
maybe they wouldve beaten the rays with him. maybe they wouldve missed the playoffs completely. we just dont know. im just tired of people saying one thing or the other which is usually determined by their attitudes toward the red sox.
