Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

How can you be sick of the Sox/Yanks?

Of course, I won't be watching tonight, but still...

I enjoy watching Sox/Yanks but agree that 19 times is too many to play division rivals. That along with interleague play makes it seem like we don't even play teams from the other AL divisions anymore.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

I started to grow a little sick of Yanks/Sox on Opening Day of last year.

Like most other things, the media just overkilled everything. I went home for lunch today and flipped on YES and of course it's showing a "classic" game between the Yanks/Sox (it was the game from '02 when Urbina walked Posada w. the bases loaded to force in the winning run).

Plus the revolving door of players makes it hard to keep the same level of intensity. I mean the Sox have an entirely new infield this year! I'm not going to be nearly as hyped to see all these newbies and FA's clash with the Yanks who have the same amount of fresh faces.

The final straw was last year on Opening Day like I said. I mean, the Sox had just won the title after knocking off the Yanks last October and they have them open the season against each other - and to make things worse friggen Randy Johnson is now pitching for us?

Now this year we have the "king idiot" in Damon playing CF for us.

It's just rediculous lately.

Re: Boston Red Sox - 2006

Various news:

Quote:
Francona said it's possible that Crisp will head to Florida, possibly within a week, on a rehab assignment. The advantage of sending the Sox leadoff hitter to extended spring training is that he could lead off every inning to get six or seven at-bats since those games are played under relaxed rules, said Francona.
Quote:
The Red Sox activated reliever David Riske from the disabled list. In order to make room for Riske, who was placed on the disabled list April 12 with a lower back strain, Abe Alvarez was returned to Triple A Pawtucket.
Quote:
Francona confirmed that David Wells will return to the mound this Friday against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, after the burly lefthander was solid in a rehab assignment for Pawtucket yesterday.

Its just too much and after awhile it loses its mystique. If Game 7 of the World Series were on everday that would become boring after awhile too. I'm more interested in seeing the Sox face the Blue Jays right now as thats the team they are really having a hard time figuring out. And If I had it my way division games would be cut from 19 to 12 because its just too much.

I think he's meat if he comes up clean with it, but I would have liked to see a "turn and look" approach...that could have scored him when TLong bobbles, or atleast drawn a thrown if he doesn't.
