I got it, but don't carry the stupid card. By joining you got first crack to buy some tickets before the season started. You also got MLB Audio as part of it, even though the cost of the membership was less than the cost of MLB Audio. This was the main reason I got it.

Haha, kidding...sounds like it worked out pretty good. You gotta admit though, that commercial is hilarious with representatives from every major country...and Johnny Damon.

Re: Official Boston Red Sox 2005 Thread

It would make sense for the decision to come soon, since Cashman signed yesterday and I think Epstein was probably waiting to see how that deal would turn out. Bottomline, money probably isn't that big of an issue because at 1.2 million he'll be paid well and other teams won't offer him a whole lot more. I think if he was adamant on getting 1.5 a year the Red Sox could dig a little deeper for that, whats another 300k to them anyways? It has to be about the power Epstein holds as GM with the Red Sox and hopefully they give him what he wants. I can see Lucchino becoming a target by fans and the media as someone within the Red Sox people do not like, if Epstein walks because of him.

looks like Theo is still doing some good even though he doesn't have a contract. From boston.com:

Report: Timlin coming back
By David Lefort, Boston.com Staff

It appears Theo Epsteinís expected deal (which could be announced as soon as today) wonít be the first one struck by the Red Sox this offseason.

According to the Providence Journalís Sean McAdam, the team reached a tentative agreement to retain relief pitcher Mike Timlin yesterday.

McAdam reported that Timlin, who set a club record with 81 appearances last year as a setup man and then as a closer, will receive a one-year deal. He made $2.75 in 2005. According to McAdam, the deal will become official early next week, when Timlin undergoes a physical.

A few days ago, the Boston Globe reported that Timlin, who will be 40 years old in March, contacted Epstein last week in an effort to start talks about a new deal to keep him in Boston. The two exchanged voice-mails, but hadnít talked as of a few days ago, Timlin said.

''I just want to be able to do this and get this done," Timlin told the Globe at the time. ''I'm not going to say I need two years. We'll do what we can to re-sign with Boston."

Timlin also recently broke ties with his agent and is representing himself.

'bout time. Happy Halloween Sox fans.

On another note, I'd consider a Manny for Santana and Erstad if I were the Sox, though I don't think Anaheim would part with Santana. The Sox would then have to find another bat (Konerko?) if such a deal were to happen, though I'd consider it unlikely.
