    Youe are right when you say "had his best years". He is now in his worst years. Good Luck and keep hoping, he might turn out to be a current Colon or Garcia.
    Go Yanks!!!

    [QUOTE]And what did the Yankees do to improve their flawed 200 million dollar payroll?
    Posted by parhunter1[/QUOTE]
    he wasn't talking about the Yanks.  if Sox get Buch healthy, they are scary. Bedard, Wake, Lackey and company don't cut it in the playoffs. desperate times require desperate means, but the Yanks have displayed that credence ten times too often. maybe more. players now use the stripes to drive their own values up and in turn negate the Yanks from the equation. I'm a business man and this is BUSINESS.

    He's had ~3.50 ERA spanning over the past 3 seasons.  Someone doesn't follow players outside of the Yankee circle very well...

    "Youe are right when you say "had his best years"."

    The fact of the matter is that when you posted your original post, you didn't realize Bedard had pitched in the AL east before. Even for a troll you are really clueless. You obviously don't understand much about risk. Risk has to do with what you have to give up and what you have to pay. Sox took very little risk here, it's all on the reward side. Meanwhile the Yanks did nothing. 

    Doesn't mean we clinched the east, lots of games to be played, but there's no question the Sox fared better at the deadline than the Yanks. I'm putting you on ignore now with "Babe" and the other no life lowlifes.

    So 2003 and 2007 are more relevant than 2008-10?

    No but 2011 is more relevant than 2008-2010.

    I had to fix the post. I meant to say "going by his 2011 regular season is likely the best thing to go by here"... I had typed 2010 regular season by accident.

    Aceves is definitely doing better than last year and looks great in long relief. he just didn't do it for the Yanks.

    I think you should work on your research which I don't think, actually I know you didn't do. RS ticket prices have been the highest for a number of years. maybe its band box size has something to do with it. parks are not stadiums. look at the attendance numbers.

    That has nothing to do with the discussion though.  Beckett's performance in the 2011 regular season is more likely to link to how he does in the 2011 posteason than his 2008-2010 postseason.  We're talking about a different pitcher this season.

    Actually he performed well as a Yankee. It his history of injuries that made the Yanks back off.

Aceves was starter wasn't he. again he is a decent long relief guy but not a very good starter. add the fact that the sox are knocking the shiot all of the ball with much run support really helps this guy.
    Posted by Bralon[/QUOTE]

    I think you should do some research, actually I know you didn't; did you?

    In 3 years w/ the yankees, Aceves had 59 relief appearances and 5 starts.  In 2010 he had 10 relief appearances and 0 starts.  Simply more junk posts from yankee trolls.

    INGORE = ON!

    [QUOTE]Theo made 2 big acquisitions in the off-season,Crawford and Gonzalez, and the local media went wild with predictions that were over the top: 100 game team; Best lineup since '27 Yankees! But with Buchholz injured the Sox have only two starters that you can have confidence in for post-season play. The Sox couldn't trade for  a starter today and Lackey/Miller/Wakefield won't do. Theo doesn't have a premiere prospect starter ready to bring up to the majors. Even the battle for 1st place with the Yankees is in jeopardy. And mediocre pitching will also due damage to the bullpen; they'll be overworked. Pitching is the name of the game in October.

    As our resident troll would say " Think before you post".

    Red Sox are on a pace to win 101 games and that includes their miserable start out of the gate.
