Who knows, with Pena playing quite poorly up until hitting the DL today, maybe the team will play better? :-?

Why on earth would you think they will play better with the guy with the 2nd most RBI and most home runs on the team sidelined? He may be inconsistent, but it is fairly obvious that he is an important part of this team

Uhhh, it's called sarcasm hence the confused face.

On the Bonds issue, if Ortiz is out of the year and the Sox can't acquire Tex for a discount given his contract status then I honestly think they would consider Bonds. He can certainly hit/get on base and Fracona knows how to deal with personalities....but still, what a circus that would create (even bigger than it already is), it would certainly be entertaining to stay the least.

Hazel is gone from NESN, at the end of June.

Now that could certainly tip the balance of power in the East ;-7

On a serious note, where did you hear that she was leaving NESN?

Sorry to hijack this Tampa Bay thread, but to answer your question, it was reported in the Herald today that Hazel is leaving. Apparently NESN is too cheap and Hazel told them where to go...
The Herald then went on to reference an old quote of hers that went something like, "I wouldn't have taken the job if they wouldn't let me date players."
It's too bad, I'm gonna miss Hazel's wonderful sports pieces ;-7
There are rumors that she could be headed to ESPN, so I suspect that we'll be seeing her again soon ;-D
And back to the point of this thread... Sox are back in 1st place :-D

vr, Xei $$$

Me too, sir. Got it at Bill's Gambling Hall during the first weekend of March Madness. I also took the no-brainer over/under over bet on 74 wins. If they pull off the longshot Series win, I'm putting a mini theatre in my basement :-D
