    The Drama-Free Season

    Please, Boston Sports Media:

    No more chicken and beer.

    No more Bobby V comments/opinions by players of him. 

    No more petty squabbles with former players/managers/GM.

    No more manufactured clubhouse drama.

    It's a new season.

    Time to move on.

    Farrell undecided on beer in the clubhouse


     February 12, 2013 1:18 pm

    By Tim Britton



    FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Manager John Farrell said Tuesday that the team has not yet decided whether it will allow beer in the clubhouse following home games this season. Bobby Valentine banned beer last season in the wake of 2011's in-game drinking.

    "That's something that we're still having discussions internally," Farrell said. "At the appropriate time, we'll make that announcement if it needs to be. We've got a lot of other things to take care of first before we worry about if a beer's going to be opened after the game."


    anybody else surprised he didn't nip it in bud right there

    Valentine didn't actually ban beer.  It was allowed on the road.  Which would make some sense, since you wouldn't have a car with you, hence no liability.  And if they phrased it that way, most people would understand you don't want to supply beer to players that are driving.

    But Valentine made it seem as if it a control issue, and to quietly allow it on the road, without telling anyone about it, seemed weak.

    They should step up the stakes and tell the players they can only drink after victories.

    It seems like every player on this Sox team has a chip on their shoulder (in a good way).  They have so many guys with something to prove - to show that last year was not what they really are. 

    That could make for an interesting year. 

    I expect they will play hard and work hard and at least be fun to watch.

    How did the Yankees do with their one and done post seasons? Too much beer? Too much chicken? We'll never know because there will never be a negative story about the Yankee clubhouse -- even with all the steroids being passed around for lunch.

    Oh, and I doubt there are any Sox fans on Yankee boards putting up negative pics of Girardi. But I'm sure your fans here will find that funny as usual. Fun for the feeble-minded.

    No rules should be in place for the Sox clubhouse that aren't in place for the rest of MLB. It just keeps the chicken and beer nonsense going that was misrepresented and exaggerated beyond belief to begin with. They're not misbehaving children, and they shouldn't be treated that way. And Bobby V was more damaging to the Sox than any can of beer could ever be. He should have been banned from the clubhouse.

    LOL

    never thought I'd see a sox fan calling the yanks a 1 and done team

    no harm intended

    I simply asked why he didn't say what the  policy was and end the conversation

    instead of putting it off for another day

    the photo like several other photos of the man

    suggest that they might go back to allowing it

    because he fancies a drink himself after the game

    nothing wrong with that IMO

    Hey Zac!

    Ive seen you post some not so friendly pics about NYY as well. I think its all in good fun and I even get a good laugh at some of them. Some folks take things way too seriously. especially baseball. Ive gone through some very tough things in my life and have realized that you cant take things too seriously to the point that some here do. Life is too short and there are much more important things in life...

    With that said, I LOVE this game and the Red Sox. I enjoy the NY/Boston rivalry and talking with fans of other teams that I can have a good respectable back and forth with. I consider you one of them. Enjoy your day.

    Which is why the Red Sox need to start off the season by winning games (or taking 2 out of 3 in each series).  If they start off the season by winning 2 out of 3 vs. the Yankees and Blue Jays, then the negativity will gradually tone down.

    I suggest trying this at home:  I just pushed the "ignore" button for Triumph, Softlaw, Carnie & Enchilada.... It was cleansing to say the least.  It is only fitting to do so at the start of spring training, the symbol of a fresh start.  I figured posting on the drama-free thread was appropriate.  Any other suggestions of who to disregard are welcome.  Now back to baseball talk.....

    A good sentiment; unfortunately, now, like the NYY, despite the payroll, they have talent issues.
