      My roommate's birthday is coming up, and he's a die hard Sox fan. Purchased him a Fathead for his birthday, but since he was talking about buying himself one, I gave it to him early today...

      If you're on the fence on these, BUY ONE. They are absolutely amazing, better than advertised.

        Wakefield finally got 200 wins.



        Now, which John Lackey are we going to see today? The one that sucks or the one that blows?

          Why do we always come here?
          I guess we'll never know.
          It's like a kind of torture
          To have to watch the show.

              I've been holding off long enough for my "old geezer" rant, but here goes: The problem for the Sox is their starting pitching sucks. The reason for that is everybody's injured. Maybe I'm remembering things wrong, but when I was a kid it was still the era of 4 man rotations and back then pitchers didn't spend half the season on the DL IIRC, they freakin pitched. Guys like Carlton, Seaver, etc. Not saying they never got hurt, but all these ticky tack little injuries that players take half the season off nursing is making me want to puke. I mean if a bum QB like Tony Romo can play a contact sport with cracked ribs and a punctured lung and still throw the ball 50 years downfield, what's the f'in problem? Beckett, Bucholtz, etc I'm looking at you. Its even funnier because if you ever see those games on one of those Classic channels or whatever, the players look like regular people who most likely went out for a few the night before the game. Now you have pitchers on 'roids, strengthening programs, nutrition programs, biorythem analysis, whateverdafuk plus they throw a lot less innings and these candy-@ sses can't make it through a full season? Gimme a break. Get your sorry, over paid over privileged arse out there and start earning your paycheck dammit.

                Why aren't the pitchers for the other 29 teams suffering too?

                  They are. I think 3/4ths of Oakland's pitching staff has been on the shelf this year, and they're all in their 20's. The Yankees have had to wheel Bartolo Colon's corpse out there to shore up their staff. I don't get the point of paying pitchers 15M a year and then babying them so they they take several months off.

                    I'm off to Fenway tonight to catch the last game there this year. Here's hoping they can at least go out with a win.
