    Sox should make Papi captain..

    Sox should consider making Papi Captain, giving him the "C" Varitek wore on his jersey.

    Then there's Pedroia...

    I'm not sure having a captain makes sense. I remember people attacking Varitek when the Sox weren't doing well and blaming some of that on Varitek since he was the "captain" at the time. I don't want to continue that tradition.

    It's honorary for the most part until things go wrong, and that's not fair to the person wearing the "C".

    The Sox don't need a Captain. They need a Chief!

    Hes a leader on that team. I think everyone knows that. No need for a "C" to prove it.

    captain & tennille ?

    [/QUOTE]


    As long they do not go on a three hour tour. I am OK with Skipper and Gilligan running the show. Does this mean Cherington going to be the professor and who will let Thurston Howell the 3rd spend his money on FA's, Thurston always was stingy with his money.

     

    I will admit this picture is a good one, I am still laughing.

    The last thing the Red Sox need is a veteran who has the letter "C" on his chest.

    What the Red Sox need are a pitching and hitting coach, starting pitchers, an outfielder, SS, and many more.

    Yeah, I think that's what the captain status means to me.  Someone to steer the ship between the mgr and the guys.  Varitek failed in that role.  If you aren't going to be a leader then you don't deserve the C.

    Varitek did not fail at that role. Since 2004 he was the captain of the team and well deserved. Some players you just cant change no matter who you are. Hes not a baby sitter. To blame one month on Tek because a couple grown men chose to behave the way they did is ridiculous. He did not fail, not one bit. You can only call so many meeting to change things. If players choose not to listen, ie; Beckett, then you need to put your energy towards the ones that do.
