Red Sox Shortstops-S.O.S.
Defensive whiz Alex Gonzalez has more homeruns than David Ortiz going into 6/20 games...
Edgar Renteria made 30 errors for the Sox in 2005, but only 13 in 2006 in his All-Star Braves season...He is hitting over .330 with 10 HRs and hits 3rd in the Braves lineup on his way to another All-Star appearance...
Orlando Cabrera made just 5 errors for the Angels in 2005 and 16 in 2006, while continuing to show very good range and a knack for getting the big hit...
Pokey Reese is out of baseball due to personal problems...
Nomar Garciaparra declined a 4-year $48 million contract with the Sox in 2003, was hurt in 2004 and subsequently wound up signing a series of 1 year deals with the Cubs($10 million) and Dodgers($6 mill base plus earned another $4 mill in incentives), before signing a 2 year, $18.5 million contract this offseason to remain with LA following his comeback player of the year award in 2006...Nomar essentially cost himself $9.5 million by not signing the then below market deal with the Sox...

"The Red Sox owe me nothing. They’ve paid me over 40 million dollars for what amounts to two seasons worth of starts. They didn’t ask for a refund in ‘05 when I couldn’t get my mother out, and on top of that they’ve been respectful of my family at every turn."
-Curt Schilling on his blog and his prospects for 2008.
Schilling starts a blog...But why?
To put his many words back "in context"...and of course to promote his new software company. We love the competitor that is Curt Schilling. Who on the 2007 Sox staff would you take on the mound in the big game? We still choose Bloody Curt. Here is his blog:
We hope you stay out of trouble on the mound and on your blog in 2007. God Bless.

TWO MORE YEARS!!
"I've already had talks with them, and I'm hopeful something can get done soon. We'll talk again this week. I think it should be a pretty painless thing."

RUMBLE IN THE FENS 7???
LUCCHINO UP TO HIS SAME OLD HIDDEN BALL TRICKS?
There were indications in Boston that the Todd Helton trade possibility is developing into another power battle between Larry Lucchino and Theo Epstein, who is reluctant to give up young players after trades in the past year in which he sent shortstop Hanley Ramirez and righthanded pitcher Anibal Sanchez in a package to Florida, and righthanded pitcher Cla Meredith to San Diego.

Trot Trot To Cleveland
Apparently the Jamesian Sox decided that they had had enough of the gutsy, gritty, but often injured leader that was Trot Nixon in a Red Sox uniform. They would rather give $70 million for a similar prototype, the difference being that the new guy is a tin man model missing the proverbial heart and respect of his teammates. I just don't see how having Drew in RF is better than Trot/WMP in RF, with $12 million in the bank for Clemens or another ace at the deadline. After all, any rational Sox fan must fully expect to see WMP in RF for the 60+++ games that Drew will be unable to answer the call anyway.Theo has never had more heat on him than he will if the 2007 team flops, as, finally, this is 100% his team. Let's hope he's right, because last August/September really sucked waiting for the Pats.
This is the end of an era for another reason: Trot was the last player in the organization to be drafted/signed/delivered to the big leagues by sweet Lou Gorman.

Belichick vs. Marty Scottenheimer in the playoffs may level the playing field for the Patriots
The keys to a Patriots victory:
- Use the dominant defensive line to hold L.T. to around 100 yards and 1 score
- Utilize the stellar ball control skills of Tom Brady to minimize L.T.'s touches
- Still more ball control via the runningback duo of Maroney-Dillon
- The dangerous playoff mind of Bill vs. the post season brain lock that is Marty
- If the ball control works, AND the Pats have 3 or less turnovers, then:
- Philip Rivers will be forced to throw
- Rivers vs. Beligenius
- =PATRIOTS 27, Chargers 24

“We do a lot of self-scouting after the game - what we did well, what we did poorly - and I (don’t) really evaluate those things,” said Mangini, before deadpanning, “but I thought my handshake was strong. Firm. My dad always told me it’s important to have a good handshake and I try to be consistent with that. I’ve experimented with a couple other different kinds that haven’t worked for me.”
