    January 3, 2008:
    Still, very little…

    Posted by Christine E. at 3:04 pm in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox Comments (2)

    This is getting ridiculous…

    Since he no longer manages the Skanks, it took Joe Torre a bit longer to weigh in on the whole Mitchell Report/Roger Clemens brouhaha: “”You’re not going to get me in that jackpot…I’d rather just stay away from making any in-depth comment about the whole steroid-HGH thing. I’m very close to Roger. When I say close to him, he was a great competitor for me. Andy the same way. And I certainly know they’re two proud individuals that only like to do the right thing…I’d just like to leave it at that.”

    How WEIRD is it going to be to watch a Sox/Skanks game and NOT see Joe Torre in the dugout? Very…Instead we get to see that militant beady eyed Joe Girardi…ewww…..

    Speaking of Managers, Tito still does not have an extension in place, although there will be a deal made, probably in the neighborhood of $3million+. The team and Tito just need to sit down and work it out. While Tito DOES have an agent, the Sox do not allow agents to negotiate contracts for management…

    No real update on the Johan Santana front, although it appears that the rock bottom deal to sign Santana is 7 years, $140 million…While the money is not a problem for the Sox, the sticking point seems to be who they have to give up to get him–The Twins still want BOTH Jon Lester and Jacoby Ellsbury–The Sox have one in one deal, another in another…

    6 weeks today! Go Sox!

      Christine, I heard Torre on ESPN radio today, and he still sounds like a robot. He talks and talks but never really says anything. Latest is Roger is going to claim on “60 Minutes” that Macnamee injected him but only with B12.

      Why does THAT sound familiar?

    2. Christine E. says:

      Hey Ted:

      Oh, are you KIDDING me? B12 huh? What a *#&@*(&#*( he is…I suppose he is arrogante nought to believe people will buy that?

      But then again, SOME dolt will…

      Hope you and your are well…Tough week back after the holiday…

      6 weeks!
