In response to RSdirtdogOR's comment:
Back to the ISSUE........
I almost can't help the knee-jerk, "are you fffff'n kidding me?" reaction. I find myself immediately questioning whether or not Buch came back READY TO GO??? Sorry! I can't help it. I wonder whether the things we heard early on in his tenure here, the stuff about him being a "major head case," perhaps have some merit??? The old schoo me says, "cut the sh++!" ________ or get off the pot! Buch the hell up! Pull your head out of your arcsss & come back ready to go! We're sick of this krap with the SP.
Add to this, the Lester interview, & I'm not at all hopeful that the nonsense is done! If Ferrell didn't jump the ______ down Lester throat, & put a serious muzzle on what he says from now on, this could be a VERY LONG SEASON......
I can't imagine JF putting up with a great deal??? I hope to hell not!
The scary thing??? Lackey, my favorite pinata, has come back looking very fit, & saying all the right things???? Not sure if this is a good thing, where Lackey is looking good by comparison?
Im not worried about Buch as much as I am about Doubie and his weak shoulder. I just hope it isnt due to lack of off season preparation. Honestly, I tend to agree with the people that believe that Buch isnt a 200 inning guy. Hopefully im wrong.
Lesters comments worry me a little, but I think on a few points he just didnt articulate himself well. The comment on being an "Ace" is troublesome. Pedro always wanted to improve and it seems like Jon is so frustrated with "fans" saying hes not a TOTR starter. Actually, besides 2012, he IS a TOTR starter, just not an "elite" starter or "Ace". It is possiblr to be a TOTR starter without being an "Ace". I hope Pedro and JF can get Lesters head right.
People on here are crying for an "Ace", but need to realize that there are NONE out there that are available. David Price should be availavle either this, or next year but I doubt this team gives up the kings ransom it will take for the Rays to even consider trading him to Boston. We either have to get lucky with guys like RDLD, Webster, or Barnes or make that trade when/if its available. Im not so sure either one of our prospects are "Ace" material though.
Lots of questions to be answered this year.
