I hope he's gone and his life continues to suck.

Guys I would like to see moved or otherwise not with the team, no matter what the cost;

Josh Beckett
John Lackey
Kevin Youkilis
Jason Varitek
Tim Wakefield
Davis Ortiz

Lester is also a problem, but we've got to attempt to salvage him. We need to get younger, more athletic, and less entitled.

It's becoming more and more apparent with the way things are leaking out that we need a manager with the ability to give these guys a good kick in the ass. I hope we don't get stuck with a Showalter type either...but we need a culture change. Maybe all the way up to the top. Sort of not all that thrilled that Ben Cherrington looks like the next general manager. He's probably a great fit for the job, but it would have been nice to see a shift in philosophies here.

Oh, looks like Theo to the Cubs is official by the way.

I'd give him the benefit of the doubt as well. Get him away from Lackey and Beckett who were probably bad influences on him.

You can put up with him since he's the best SP they have. Also like you said removing some others will probably help.

Astros are going to the AL next year.

Quote:
Peter Gammons of MLB Network and NESN reports that the sale of the Astros is expected to go through in mid-November, complete with a move to the American League.
Drayton McLane agreed to sell the team in May to a group led by Jim Crane for $680 million — the second-highest sale price in major league history. Crane met with commissioner Bud Selig last week and the deal must still be approved by MLB owners. The Astros, who have played in the National League for all 50 years of their existence, would move to the American League in order to give each league 15 teams.

Lester was part of the problem, yeah. He was right in the fried chicken, video games, and beer during games mix with Beckett and Lackey. I do agree that removing those two will go a long ways towards helping, but we need to get a pitching coach like Farrell back in the fold who can reach these guys and get them to work.

It'll be interesting to see what kind of prospects we get back in return from all this. Really hard to predict what kind of prospect we'll be getting. Not much in the Cubs system that I would like besides Jackson. Maybe we can get Szczur and suite him up for the Patriots.

Interesting news about the Astros. They clearly need some kind of major shakeup. Supposedly Andrew Friedman has interest in being the new GM there. That would be a major pickup.

I heard the compensation may not be that good at all. Maybe just cash. Guess we'll find out for sure on Friday though.

I've read things both ways, yeah. That would be pretty damn disappointing. Oh well. I wonder how long it will be before we have a new GM. It's possible Cherington is announced right away.

They're even worse than that. More like a AAA team.

I think MLB should completely realign just for fun. It'd probably increase fan interest exponentially.

I guess so. Really stupid idea.

Apparently Crawford tried to tell the team to get it's **** together during the collapse and was appalled by the lack of professionalism demonstrated by some of the people on the team, as was Gonzalez. So there's that, at least. Tough year for Crawford, but I don't think we're running him out of town quite yet. Lackey is easily the most hated Red Sox player I've seen in 15 years of following the team though.

Tim Wakefield
Davis Ortiz

Lester is also a problem, but we've got to attempt to salvage him. We need to get younger, more athletic, and less entitled.

It's becoming more and more apparent with the way things are leaking out that we need a manager with the ability to give these guys a good kick in the ass. I hope we don't get stuck with a Showalter type either...but we need a culture change. Maybe all the way up to the top. Sort of not all that thrilled that Ben Cherrington looks like the next general manager. He's probably a great fit for the job, but it would have been nice to see a shift in philosophies here.

Oh, looks like Theo to the Cubs is official by the way.
I think that goes for Boston/New England fans in general too. haha. :)

Nah, but really, the Sox have risen to the level of the Yankees as far as trying to buy their way to success. So with inflated salaries come inflated egos and greater sense of entitlement. You got what you bought.

It takes a special manager to keep that kind of ship in line.

I assume to the AL West, right?

Rangers vs Astros have good inter-state rivalry potential.
