You mean it was up to god to give Adrian the talent so he can make millions, while others make $30,000 a year? That is gods plan too? And if you pay me millions upon millions I will go ride gods boat down stream and never have to FIGHT to win, because I have a get out of hard work pass from God? That's not the God I believe in. The God I believe in doesn't pick world series champions, he is a little too busy to control such trivial matters as who wins the World series or who makes the playoffs. He may, and I mean may give us talent to do something when we are born, I think thats about as far as it goes. Failure is Gods fault? If I bend down and bump my head on a table thats gods fault too? If it wasn't gods fault, it was the injuries fault? Every contender had significant injuries to its pitching and lineup. Yo Adrian, I got a clue for you, It is YOUR FAULT and every other player that didn't get in shape, hustle out a play and run the bases like a professional. My 85 year old mother would at least hustle down the baseline. Not jog her way into a double play. But hey my mother never knew it was pre-ordained that it was going to be a double play no matter how hard she tried. It is Francona's fault for not being able to manage situations on the field and situations with players. Michael Vick is playing quarterback this weekend and he has a broken hand, a BROKEN HAND! Did he say" I cant play because God doesn't want me to win or I am hurt? Crawford didn't realize you play in a few steps to STOP the winning run from scoring on a single, because if it is over your head the game is over anyway? I watched both games last night, I watched one manager give his team a reason to keep playing hard, by making situational move after situational move, which if anything at all it does is it communicates to the players I STILL believe we can win, even if we are down 7 runs against one of the best teams in baseball. While the other manager watched runners run with complete incompetence, and hitters at the plate who should not have been hitting in the situation they were in. I watched arrogant pitchers who appeared shocked when the other team got a hit against them or hit a homerun against them. Can some one, anyone please ANYONE tell Lester to Hurry up? Get it in gear? All in all, this Sox team didn't give a crap about winning, they gave a crap about contracts, paychecks, being comfortable and divorcing their wives when they have cancer. I feel bad for hustle players like Youk, Pedroia and Ellsbury, all players who play their hearts out. By the way, they are all home grown players, while Country Club players, like Beckett, Crawford, Adrian (its up up to God) Gonzalez, and Lackey should as much heart this year as a bull frog. Why doesn't he just change his name to Godzalez then? You see a REAL manager calls his players out wether in the media or in the clubhouse, why? Because he wants them to get pissed, get pissed at me or whatever, just get pissed and get some heart in that lifeless body of a ball player and get on the field and DO something. Or at least get the team together for a prayer session to try and convince god to let them in the playoffs. SOMETHING! I just wish in April, before I invested all my time in watching the Red Sox, that god had told me the Sox were not gonna even make the playoffs so I would not have wasted all that time and energy listening to a bunch of fools like Beckett tell me otherwise.

One of the stupidest things ive ever heard an athlete say. He dissapeared in Aug and Sept when it mattered. What happened to the predictions of him hitting one ovber the monster every other at bat. One things for sure, he aint Mark Texeira.
