[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Peter Abraham: Don't blame it on Valentine-team is injury-riddled and dysfunctional/front office-poor decisions : Actually Roseanne Rosannadanna was the wild-haired character with myriad similarly named relatives, who corresponded with Mr. Faber from New Jersey. " Nevermind" was tagline of Emily Litella, who mistook euthanasia for youth in Asia, violins on tv, Soviet jewelry, among other gaffes. I made this same mistake recently , was corrected, and "looked it up".
Meanwhile, am thinking that if Sox front office anticipated a rebuilding or "bridge" year or two, until top-heavy contracts ( Jenks, Beckett, Lackey, Dice-K) went away and youth ( Lavarnway, Kalish, Iglesias, Doubront) transitioned into lineup, Valentine as manager would furnish enough distraction to occupy or entertain the fans. If completely serious about cutting payroll, a colorful and hated field general would deflect anger from F.O. and concentrate it on Valentine. Similar to a failed president with no success playing up false issues like dogs, free birth control, or silver spoons instead of jobs, growth, economy and debt.
Posted by jimedfred[/QUOTE]My bad, I was sure that Roseanne Roseanna Danna, but now that you mention it I remember now. Thanks for the reminder. I really enjoy talking about baseball with you, and you seem like a pretty good guy but we should probably never talk about politics, because I can guarante you without a doubt you would hate mine. I don't mean any offense or anything because I really do
enjoy talking about base ball with you. Plus I like your screen name too. Those were the days weren't they? When the Red Sox way was to turn out players like Rice, Lynn, Evans, Burleson, Fisk, Scott and Cooper. I'd like to see the Sox get back to that more.
