[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Bobby V--so far, so good : I have to disagree with the "about as good" portion of your post. I believe that if Bobby V. took over the Sox in 2004, they would have had more success than qualifying for 2 Worls series. I believe, given the talent they had, that they underachieved for 6 of the 8 years that Francona was at the helm. I know most fans were thrilled with the 2004 WS Championship. I wanted a dynasty, and I believe the talent was here to be a dynasty. In the last 7 years under Francona, they made it to one World Series. I believe they should have been in more.

Hey Bosox I told you this before when you offered the same crap as you do now.
Every year that Francona was there, there was significant change. If I remember my numbers correctly it was on average 7 players.
Your coment about a dynasty does not work because of the changes and the fact that most players do not perform exactly the same each year.
Youk has had a 30 to 40 point swing in his avergage. Look at the pitching differences for Curt in the time he was here same for MDC. Nixon had his best year ever in 2004.
You dynasty reason fails since you do not look at the ups and downs of a players career.
You do not realize that when TB made the playoffs the first time evry RP had career years as did a few position players. Which they have never duplicated.
There is far too much change evry year as well as variations in players stats from year to year.
This is not 1955 when every team was the same every year except for maybe on e or two changes
