In response to moonslav59's comment:
Maybe we should have let the fat Doubie pitch in 2011.
Or Weiland get 25 starts.
no we had wakefield..we were honored as fans to see him go for the record...how did that work out for you?
The same as it worked out for you:
better than Lackey
better than Weiland
better than Miller
Doubront was not an option early on, and was lower on depth chart than those listed above- maybe due to being out of shape.
did you really just say wakefield was in better shape than FD? seriously...very funny
No, of course not, I said Doubront came to camp out of shape, went on the DL when he had a chance to win the 5th slot, then fell on the depth chart to below Miller and Weiland. I guess that doesn't mean he was worse than them, but he never got his chance. Also, Lackey was worse than Wake, so another point could and should be that if Doubie was to be given a shot, it would/should have been for Lackey not Wake.
btw, once again i think you need to contact lucchino about not understanding the red sox promotion scheme and being wrong about what he said...after all Moon you have 10 million posts and LL is only CEO/Pres of the red sox
I have admitted I missed it. I said I was sorry. Maybe you missed it. I hope you're not going to pull a softy and keep bringing up my past mistakes that I have admitted to.
BTW, I'm still waiting on a list of Sox prospects held back too long.
