I'm going to Boston Calling in September. Really solid list of bands. Mostly looking forward to Of Monsters & Men, Chvrches, Avett Brothers, and The Alabama Shakes. I saw The Lone Bellow about a month ago and they were fantastic.
Because Cashman has been so good with the Steinbrenner money? How much did Jeter make while handicapping his team the last few years? How much is CC making now? How much is still owed to A-Rod? Come on now.
Come on now, you're being very myopic. Let's not pretend that Ben Cherington wasn't a huge part in garnering the Red Sox 3 titles in 10 years. Sure a lot of his recent acquisitions didn't pan out and have made the team finish last in 2 of the 3 (soon to be 3 of the last 4) years, but Lucchino and the ownership group has to take that on the chin as well. They're always pushing the GM to get guys like Crawford, Ramirez, etc. That kind of mentality hasn't worked out. You would have figured after the Crawford, Gonzalez debacle they would have learned. And the way they treated Lester was criminal.
They need to find a few pitchers, dump Sandoval or Ramirez on someone and move forward with the youth that has looked pretty impressive this summer. The cupboard isn't bare and with only a few tweaks this team can be a contender next season and moving forward.
