&*^($@ The Fans Say

You are wrong if you think...
...this season was a "bridge year". The Sox lost because they were without the possible top three hitters in the lineup - Ellsbury, Pedroia and Youk' - and had career bad years from their ace (Beckett) and their closer. They also lost their starting center fielder for most of the season and their star catcher for almost a month. This was a good team which would have made the playoffs if they had been remotely healthy....the bums need to trade Pabst so Daniel Bard can close. This is both not going to happen and should not happen. Moving Bard to closer right now means that the Sox are lost in the eighth. Are you ready for Michael Bowden or Scott Atchison to take over that duty? If not, then you keep the current set up. The other option is you trade for or sign someone but anyone out there would not have Papelbon's pedigree and the fact is that Paps had seriously nasty stuff at the end and he "just" needs to locate better …
