    Can you also stop responding to and enabling posters like Softlaw, Georom, and HelloitsMeAgain? Try it. It might be good for the forum. Everyone but you know that they are baiting, toying, and laughing at you as they type. Isn't that obvious to you?  Talk about baseball, start your own threads, and most of all ignore Georom, Softlaw, Babe, contrarians, and devil's advocates. If someone is 99% negative 24/7, put them under suspicion. Isn't that logical? Change the forum environment / mood from being negative. Is that unreasonable for a Red Sox fan?



    What would be good for the forum would be if you went on a permanent hiatus.

    Hats off to TWM on his sincerity on this issue. That trait is rare here.

     



    Pike, please.  Please.  Can we go a few posts, maybe even a thread withot this nonsense? 

     

     




    It's enough to make you miss the ignore button isn't it?

     

     



    Even if it brings Andrewbitch back

     




    I almost said that. :-) Seriously though Andrew has some good points. He's fairly knowledgeable about baseball, and he's usually talking baseball. Plus with JD and Crawford gone he has no one to whine about.

     I suspect he'll be back, when the season starts. He did, but I'm sure he'll find a new target player

    Did Pike actually challenge somone else on this board to talk baseball? LOL

    Pike stop it with the 70 percent of the board are not Red Sox fans. 

    The truth is that 70 percent of the forum (maybe higher) are not Red Sox fans according to your "self-appointed moderator" definition of what constitutes a fan. 

    As for this, 

    "I don't read Mazz anymore after listening to the interview last year between Felger, Mazz, and John Henry

    Mazz and Felger are from the "If I scream Loud Enough, I'll be right" school of journalism...

     

     

    Wastes of time, both of them."

    I never liked Mazz as a columnist but the fact is that they had one of the only candid interviews with John Henry that has ever happened. It was great radio and questions were asked none of the daily beat writers who fear losing access to Fenway have ever asked. 

    In the process by the way Henry scored some points and addressed some issues head on. That interview was good for him and the franchise becuase it was the opposite of a scripted PR statement. 

    I realize it's simpler to just label people and throw them under the bus but it generally fails to capture the reality in its complexity. 

    As for A-Rod, I agree that the Sox lucked out when they ended up not signing him. It was one of the great non-signings in Red Sox history. It sure didn't feel that way at the time. I don't believe we would have won a ring with A-Rod but there is no way to say. 

    A more interesting question is: what if Lucchino had't messed up the recruitment of Mark Texeira? I'm thinking he was probably a good one not to have on the roster either but I think that's a more interesting (if less dramatic) question.

    In response to LR3683paw's comment:

    Do posters on Yankee forums expect Cashman to be over 60% right in hindsight on his transactions? That might be an unreasonable expectation. On this forum most posters expect 95-100 percent  success and that is why Yankee fans come here to watch the Hatfields battling the McCoys. Yankee fans come here to enjoy all of the squabbling but who really knows whether the squabblers are really Red Sox fans? Remember that this is the Internet.

    nice brush you're painting with there Pike...

    Think the '19 Black Sox take that honor.

    Few would mean a  minimum of 3 years. The Yanks won it in '09 and A-Roid had a great post season. Try keeping up.
