    I Gladly Trade You a Sack of Crap for another Sack of Crap

    In a move reminiscent to getting rid of Carl Everett, the Red Sox unloaded their Korean bomb to Colorado in exchange for Charles Johnson (a washed up catcher) who they immediately released! Think about that. They wanted to be rid of Byung-Hyun Kim so bad they took a player that they didn't want even more than Kim. Is that even possible? Well not exactly since they also received a minor league left-handed pitcher Chris Narveson. The full article has more of the numbers behind the deal but this was nothing more than taking the retarded step child out behind the tool shed, hitting him over the head with a shovel until he stopped moving for good, and then never speaking his name again. PR spinster Theo Epstein had this to say about the original contract he offered Kim (2 years 10 million dollars).
    We certainly made a mistake and I take responsibility for that"

    Oh Johnson, You Still Have So Much To Learn

    Archrival?" Johnson said with a laugh after yet another question about Boston. "It sounds like we're reading a comic book or something. It sounds like we're watching "Superman" or "Spider-Man 4."

    Don't Worry We Are Still Idiots

    I think if we do [act crazy], we'll win more, and we just need to do that," says Damon, attempting to untangle his mane while he answers. "If we start becoming a little more serious, it could be different. But I think we've kept the core of the guys around. We can still cut up and have a good time."
    Mike Berardino writes an interesting piece about the Sox and their wild ways. Clement, Wednesdays starter, what do you think about all this idiot talk?
    I don't know how many people I've called an `idiot' in my life. The big thing is they know how to have fun, but they also know when it's time to play. To me that's why they're good. There's also a laid-back approach to it, too, that takes some of the pressure off what's going on."

    Myers Back: Kim Sayonara?

    The Red Sox acquired Myers from Seattle in August, didn't resign him, the Cardinals signed Myers in December and then traded him to the Sox in March. Yeah that makes a lot of sense. It doesn't mean much since his time will be limited, but it may suggest that BK Kim will definitely not be playing in a Red Sox uniform this year.

    Mike's also a guy that can go two innings, so it's not a drain on your staff as much as a normal situational lefty is." Tito said Tuesday

    The Season Hasn't Even Started Yet....

    ... and I am already tired with all the ads on NESN. It is going to be a long summa'. That Toyota ad has to go. Interesting notes from today: both Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling pitched today for their teams, they both just happened to pitch in minor league games instead of in Tampa against each other. David Ortiz wore number 79 today instead of 34 his regular number. Remy said on the air that Big Pappi must have left his jersey in Ft Myers.

    Sox Yankees: Can't Wait? Watch it Today

    The long awaited Sox Yankees season opener is just a few days away, and I will quote Jerry Remy and say
    I just can't wait."
    Now you don't have to, the time has come the Sox will play the Yankees today, your wait is over. Sort of. The Sox and Yanks gear up for their last meeting of the spring at 1pm and the game will be broadcast on YES network for all of those with DirecTV. With that said it is hard to believe that THIS SUNDAY, it all starts over again. The games that mean something, the rivalry, the quest for the world championship trophy, and you can’t forget the all important fantasy stats.

    Get Some

    It was all fun and games for Trot Nixon Saturday until the game against the D-Rays started. Nixon made two throwing errors (that didn't show up in the scorecard) which cost the Sox two runs. It appeared that Nixon forgot how to play ball for a moment. But Nixon's woes were not the Sox problem; they were no-hit by devil dog pitching until the fifth inning and left the park with only three hits and no runs.

    Shake Hands and Come Out Fighting

    The tension between the Red Sox and the Yankees were not just on the field with the players last year, they were also off the field with the fans. These high tensions reared their head at an Acton school where a principal made the students shake hands and make up after a flare up, but magnanimous school officials thought one better and decided to ask the pro-teams to do the same. The Boss of the New York players said this much
    He thinks it's a great idea," A Steinbrenner spokesman said
    Tito's endorsement on the other hand was less resounding.
    If our guys want to go shake some hands, they're going to do it," Francona said. "I'm not going to make them."

    Fenway Will Stay, Boston Won't Pay

    In a stark contrast from the last owners of Fenway Park, the new ownership group have decided to stay in Fenway Park (for now) and more surprisingly they didn't ask the city for any money for the planed improvements and repairs. But this is Boston and everything is political so Menino wasted no time making it clear that the city wont be paying any monies for the parks future improvements.
    We don't have the finances to do it." said Menino Tuesday

    D Lowe shows off his new found batting stance he intends to sport this year in the NL. Prior to the game Lowe visited with some of his former teammates to enjoy a laugh. Lowe also got a chuckle out of Bronson Arroyo getting a hit off him in the second inning of Monday's nationally televised game. After leaving the game D Lowe was interviewed by Duke Castiglione, son of Joe, who asked Lowe what the difference has been becoming a Dodger.
    We don't have as many fans. Lowe replied

    Tito: Whats the Difference This Year Without Pedro?

    Well, Nobody has been late.
    Said Francona during an in game interview with ESPN on Monday against the Dodgers. Francona went on to say that if you are asking him the same question in June or July then they have a problem and he thinks Wells and Clement will do just fine. He added at the end of his interview that he was just teasing and for the ESPN broadcasters to pass that along.

    Is Your Shortstop Fat?

    Edgar Renteria officially weighs in at 6 feet 1 inch 200 pounds. Jetter tips the scale at 6'3" 195 lbs. It certainly appears that Edgar has a beer gut, to be kind. If his league leading high average or his steals fall off this year it will not be a surprise since he is so fat. Thebostonblogger.com will point the finger directly at his waist line.

    Theo Takes the Blame

    In a 1900 word essay Tony Massarotti wrote just about everything you would need to know and more about Byung-Hyun Kim. Why? I am not sure. My essay on Kim would be only two words in length. "He Sucks." One point of interest would be that Theo Epstein takes full responsibity for his bad deal and Kim's propensity to suck.
    It's my fault, It's the responsibility of the club to do everything in its power to help a guy, but in the end not everybody can play in Boston." Epstein said

    Schilling to Miss First Two Weeks

    Tito told reporters Saturday that Schilling will in fact not make the opening day Start in the Bronx, and will miss at least the first two weeks of the season. Wells will take the hill at his old home for the MLB season opener game Sunday night. Why Wells? Is he our second best pitcher?
    He's been there before... Regardless of how that game goes, if it doesn't go the way we want it, he'll be fine. I just think that's best for our whole entire staff, to let David take the ball the first night, because he's done it before." Terry Francona said
    The team will place Schilling on the 15 day DL to start the season.
    Wakefield will start the home opener
