    The Dodgers released him so Nomar could play 1st. Nomar keeps helping the Sox unintentionally! It is absolutely mind-boggling that every other team didn't claim him before the Sox did.

    He is only 27, and has moved around a lot. In 2004 with Florida before he was traded to LA, he hit 15HR, .270 BA, .388 OBP, in 281 at-bats. He's like Bellhorn - great eye, holes in his swing - but he hits with power. If Papa Jack fixes the holes in his swing, PECOTA projects his potential to be David Ortiz in 2003. His fielding percentage is ridiculous - with Florida he made 721 plays at 1st with only 8 errors, for a fielding percentage of 99%. He could be a young Tino Martinez - solid D, 20homers, and a tough out in the 6-8 spot.

    He only costs 750k as well. I see Lowell or Snow being traded away by June.

    If this doesn't belong here, I'll move it to somewhere else. Just wanted to share the good news.

    You are such a fricken blowhard, kill joy! Ask me again, why I said no to the "carpool." I could give a flying fig about the cheerleader thread, but I am not in there screwing others out of their good time! Cripes, grow the hell up!

    Lowell is now on a very short leash. If he struggles offensively, Youkillis moves to third and Snow and Choi platoon at first.

    A wise move for the Sox that has no downside - as Choi still has minor league options as well.

    Didn't the Sox want to trade for him a few years ago?? I am thinking he was a trade deadline guy who went from the Marlins to LA the year the fish won the WS, 2003......

    ya

    :rofl: :rocker:


    anyway maverick if you want to talk sox there is a site that patsfans joined up with (the sox board he basically moved over there) and that's:

    http://www.talksox.com/forum/index.php


    We'll see what happens, but Lowell looks really slow right now (like playing underwater) so i wouldn't be surprised if it didn't take long to throw youk over to 3rd and throw him at first with Snow as a back-up!

    Hmmm - there's a Red Sox forum on our board, but no Patriots forum on that board. What do you make of that?

    The bigger question is: Why do Desperate Housewives fans continually insist on posting about them OFF TOPIC in the Patriots forum when they have THEIR VERY OWN FORUM on this messageboard in which such trivialities are entirely ON TOPIC? I mean, if I want to cruise speed bumps I'll drive over to the nearest strip mall ...

    I think that this Red Sox news is great for some people. Personally, I could give a great big flying **** about it and hope ,no I pray, that I don't see anymore of it. But that's just me.

    How's Sam Jethro looking this year? I think he will raise his OBP.

    I assume that most anything in a Desperate Housewives thread has some element of "joke" attached. Meanwhile, you might want to check out:

    Not the only one but perhaps the best known. Remember the band Focus, which did "Hocus Pocus"? They're actually still going ... Thijs van Leer is a great rock flute player in his own right.

    Holy cow, I haven't heard Focus since I was spinin' the wax at a little 10 watt AM station. :D

    Still, nothing beats Ian Anderson's grunt/growl while playing the flute. My Aunt was a college music professor and used to complain, "*TSK* you're NOT supposed to grunt into a flute".

    I think they have a couple preseason games this weekend, don't they? Tune into WEEI, you should know in about three minutes.

    re

    Yeah, I just made an account so I'll take my excitement to talksox.com for discussion about this. Thanks! I won't be bugging people about the Sox on this board anymore.
