Trading carrots for chocolate pudding since 2012.
Don’t blame Kevin Youkilis for the way the Red Sox are playing. Don’t blame Josh Beckett. Don’t blame Bobby Valentine. Blame the team as a whole. Blame management, the players, the clubhouse, even Daisuke’s interpreter! I don’t care that this team is playing .500 ball. Sometimes you just have to say enough is enough. We have some great young talent down in Pawtucket. It is time to give them a shot. The starters couldn’t do much worse then what is going on right now. This team needs some botox. A facelift. Trim the fat!
Do you notice how every time they bring up a young player and play him it is like a shot in the arm to this team? Think Will Middlebrooks, Ryan Kalish, or even Scott Podsednik. Yes I know Podsednik is old as time, but he literally brought a new flavor to a team that has left a bad taste in your mouth. What I am getting at is this… The reason why is because these guys haven’t been a part of the horror show in that clubhouse yet. Two weeks ago we had Middlebrooks tweeting “wake and rake!” I haven’t seen anything like that since because he has to worry about whether or not he’ll be playing because a guy with a .205 batting average and a bad attitude is playing over him.
Speaking of bad attitudes, our pitching staff may have the worst attitude in the league. WHY ARE WE PUTTING UP WITH THEM??? They are awful!!! Beckett, Buchholz, and even Lester would bring back a ton of talent prospect wise and maybe, just maybe this team would be better off without them?? Packages of Buchholz and Youk, or Beckett and Youk would restock the farm system and I think give this team what it needs! A new attitude!!!
A good friend of mine always said a bad attitude is like a flat tire, you get no where until you change it. Well this team is going no place! It needs a new attitude. No more $180 million contracts. Start looking for character players again, like say a Bill Mueller, Kevin Millar, and Pokey Reese!!! My cure for this toxic Sox team??? Start playing the kids! Bring up Larvanway, Iglesias, and for the love of god play Middlebrooks and Kalish!!! Try starters like a Franklin Morales!!! Who cares if they get knocked around! So do Lester, Beckett, and Buchholz!!!
Want to know why in recent years Boston has had major love for the Bruins, Pats, and Celts? Because their players left everything on the ice, field and court!!! This Sox team doesn’t do that! But maybe with an injection of youth there is a chance they could!
