Boston Red Sox 2017
Ok, I cracked the egg, at the behest of Perkdog. With pitchers and catchers reporting in about a week, I thought I'd do the deed.
Much is going on with the team, which I won't post here. All news is easily gotten via Google or duckduckgo...I prefer the latter, as they don't track where you go.
I probably won't follow the team as avidly as I may have in the past, but will toss in a comment here and there. I have to say, I'm far from excited that el Gordo Sapo will anchor 3rd base...this of course is only because some idiot GM gave him the half of fort Knox in one of the worst deals in Red Sox history. Basically, fatty is having to sing for his supper...which should only be crackers and water.
Other info is ongoing with possible trades, most notably may be Napoli and...wait for it...wait for it...ready?...could be the return of guess who??? Papelbon. Well, like I said, lots going on. I wish the team well and of course a successful season.
Ok Paul, I did it.
Interesting (or not), now there is back and forth about which was bigger, the SB comeback win Sunday, OR, being down 0-3 against the Yankees and winning 8 in a row to finally nail the 2004 WS win. Not apples and oranges to me, they are gigantic in their own realm...some people have too much time on their hands to waste dissecting this comparison.
