    Making Boras’ head explode…And other fun Christmas/Hanukkah activities…

    Posted by Christine E. at 10:42 am in Red Sox Comment (1)

    I am thinking that Satan’s head is probably leaking copious amounts of smoke right about now–He can’t get $15-20 million from the Red Sox for Daisuke Matsuzaka, and the whole having him sit in a room full of English speaking folks–and telling him only what he wanted him to hear (or, the “truth” as he knows it…uh….huh…..) didn’t work. Finally the kid tells him to get it done, rather than play sacrificial lamb to the Boras machine…

    And now J.D. Drew is broken….and so might be his deal…. Right now, the whole $70 million/5 year deal is in limbo, and officially, Drew remains a free agent, and will until the issue is resolved. There is some question if the surgery he had in his right (throwing) shoulder in 2005 will impinge upon his ability to be a power hitter. He has already admitted that his shoulder is not 100%…Unfortunately, because he was released as a free agent, his team medical records from when he was a Dodger are not available, and the Sox have to rely on their current physical and medical records they received from his agent….Scott Boras……

    Hopefully this is a wakeup call to the Sox, and they place some protective restraints on his contract. The Sox cannot have him break down 2 years into the contract and be left holding the bag for a buttload of money, while he sit…
    How about THIS for cool?: Satan was asked by Daisuke’s wife to get him a MLB Jersey–the one of his favorite player–now, you would think it would be a fellow Japanese player–Matsui or Ichiro….uh…no…it was…..Boston Red Sox Captain, Jason Varitek…I think they are going to get along just fine as battery mates…:-)

    And it sounds like he is looking forward to getting started…Upon his return to Japan, he said: “I’ve got a good impression about Boston and I believe my family will love the city…I feel I’ve been welcomed by the people there so far and I want to make them happier once the season begins.”

    In a little over a hundred days, I know I will be a TON happier…
