Re: How do you fix this mess?
Imagine paying $5 mill per year for Johnny effing Gomes....a jag that can't hit righties....all because he's loosy goosy in the club house. Give me $5 mill and I'll shoot golf balls out my butt in the clubhouse while singing Sweet Caroline with a KFC bucket on my head and standing on a pony keg of Old swill.
Imagine 12 months ago they had Josh Reddick on their roster on the cheap....and now the Sux are paying up for the A's platoon guy.
Remember back in the day when the Sox had at least one must see guy....a guy that you couldn't take your eyes off of....Boggs the hitting machine, Roger pre roids, Pedro, Manny....even Nomar....must see TV. Now I get to look forward to seeing which inning John Lackey implodes in ......1st or 2nd.
Can't wait to see the pitcher that Carmine spits out.....maybe a Livan Henandez or a Jamie Moyer
And here's a little nugget I poached from SOSH...
"In 3,500 career innings in the outfield, Johnny Gomes posted a UZR of -37, which translates out to -13 runs per full season. DRS rates him even worse, coming in at -50, as does Sean Smith‘s Total Zone. Gomes is basically as bad as an outfielder can possibly be while still being considered a passable part-time player at the position."
Yes....Sux rockin the off season
"In the end, Belichick juiced Moss like an orange, and once all the good pulp was squeezed, he tossed Moss aside. "
