Lackey will come back even better. People disregard what he went through this season because of the way he speaks/character to the media.

I find that really hard to believe. It isn't every day that Sox fans are thrilled when a player goes through season-ending surgery.

It would be hard for him not to come back better since he had one of the all time worst statistical seasons for a starting pitcher in the history of the game. That doesn't even take into account his showing up teammates, coaches, and how he acts with the media. Even being marginally better would be a huge improvement.

He'll only let up 7 runs a game? Yippie!

Well hes statistically the worst pitcher in Red Sox history so the only way he can go is up.

game 6 tonight. will be interesting to see how the rainout will affect texas. they had everything going for them coming out of game 5 and can definitely still win this.

what's sad is that baseball will be going away. this has been an awesome month of baseball, from the end of the regular season with two playoff spots being decided at the same time with 4 games going on to awesome games throughout the postseason.

Indeed. I hope the cardinals pull this off after the way they got into the playoffs

I do find that the end of season brings about a melancholy. But the anticipation of the new season will take over soon enough. I won't miss watching Larussa overmanage games. He's one reason why baseball has become almost unwatchable at times.

Well for what it's worth, it would be hard to imagine him coming back any worse, wouldn't it?

I like the idea of Mike Maddux as replacement for Tito.


Would take the load off getting an experienced pitching coach.

We'll see, we have no idea what Big Ben is going to do as GM. I hope I'm wrong but I fear he's a puppet of Larry's. Looking at their track records with Larry, he helped run the Orioles into a state that they still haven't recovered from and Werner brought us the San Diego Padres and Larry was there too. Henry's too busy now playing with his new toy in England. I find it laughable as an owner to not back Francona if that's who he wanted. I think we'll be looking at a team next season trying to stay out of 4th place not contending. Hope I'm wrong.

An injury-prone 34 year old whose best days are probably behind him?

Wow, where do I sign?

Seriously: Pass. Feel like you'd be paying for past performance with him. And he's slowed down the last 2-3 years and I'd rather have a guy I can count on to cover the vast RF at Fenway.

For manager: I think I'm a Tim Wallach guy based on what I have read about the various candidates.

We're going to replace an underachieving, overpriced right fielder with another underachieving, overpriced right fielder? Where do I sign up?
