    Just actually bought Sox tickets for May 18th vs. the Brewers on stubhub! The tickets were pricey as hell but I figured it will probably be a good game to see. I'm also looking to get tickets to the July series vs. the Yankees and the June series vs. the Cards.

    I think you need to take a step back and look at what point in your life did things take a turn for the worse and u became a Red Sox Fan.:confused2:

    Ill pray for you! Go Yanks :thumbup:

    Before 2004 I questioned myself about being a Sox fan everyday.... but now it's not so bad.

    I'll probably be here until the new site is launched. I feel like the majority of the FH Sox fans are on this board now anyway so there's no need to keep posting at FH.

    I'm glad to see you came aboard here, I enjoy talking Sox with you (and the rest of the Sox fans.... except In Flames..... he sucks and from what I hear has pink Red Sox hats and a pink Varitek jeresy).

    Good to see you on this board Don!

    I actually also got tickets to see the Angels play the Yankees at YS in August (sadly there are no Sox/Angel weekend games this year) but at least you'll be glad to know that I'll be rooting for the Halos that day (although I usually do when they're not playing the Sox).

    Well it will be a little easier to beat them at least for the next 60 days as the Yanks placed Carl Pavano on the 60 day DL. IF he returns then I think Theo would have to make a deal with St. Louis to try and get Matt Clement and possibly Joel Pineiro back to even it up a bit.

    Im suprised we can't get a better offer for Coco, he's still a good player with upside.

    The problem is Coco hasn't hit at all in the 2 years he's been with the Sox and no team really needs a CFer. Plus I'm sure Theo isn't just going to give him away but it's hard to make a deal when guys like Kenny Lofton and up until 2 weeks ago Cory Patterson were still available for nothing.

    Again Coco would be a great 4th OF with us but I worried he'll be a distraction like Payton was in 05 if he doesn't play.

    no offense as a yankee fan coco sucks thats why there hasnt been any good offers for him, he hasnt hit since hes been with boston if he could hit and with his speed and defense he would be a great trading chip as it is now he is at best a fourth outfielder

    I wouldn't say Coco sucks. His speed and glove alone make him somewhat valueble but you're right that because of his hitting the Sox are having a hard time finding a match. I wouldn't go as far as saying he's a 4th OFer because I think he could be a starter on a lot of MLB teams right now, however the team he's on right now he's not a good fit.

    Everyone has their faults. Just as long as you wear really long pants to cover up those Red Sox

    thats true he sucks to me because iam a yankee fan lol but you are right he could start for a team out there, but in order to get something good for him he has to show he can hit consistently

    i think he is a prototypical NL guy he plays amazing defense he made some of the best catches in baseball over the last couple of years he just needs to improve offensively

    Went to turn on the game this morning and my Direct TV feed wasn't working. I went on the computer to see the score and it was already 2-0 A's and Matsuzaka had 5 walks already. This is going to be a long year..... haha.

    Yeah, and then in the top of the ninth, 4-3 As, Moss hits a home run (I think his first EVER) to tie it up and now Okajima is on the mound.

    This is the worst way for a Yankee fan to wake up. Turn on espn 2 and Huston Street hangs a slider right over the plate. What a bum!!!!!!!

    Luckily I got to see some of the game via ESPN 2, but man watching Dice-K in the 1st inning was brutal. We barely pulled this win off today, but hey, a W is a W and I'll take it.

    Dice K was shaky when I went to bed, looks like he calmed down as the game went on. Something odd about watching the start of the baseball season at 3am. 6 days until the "real" start of the season ;)

    Damn I wish I could rely on him being healthy for once. The guy has the stuff to win 20 games and a Cy Young.

    Well there goes our undefeated season.... but on the plus side Lugo has more hits in the past 2 games as he did in the entire month of June last year (or at least it seems like it).
