Wrist Watch Is On

Crawford wrist issues continue

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Nomah!
Will Fans Rush to Judgment Now That Craw Rushed?
Did the Red Sox 'Rather Be Sorry Than Safe' with Carl?

For Openers, He's Out for the First Game
Is This Bobby's First Big Blunder?
That's the $142 Million Question


"More than likely Opening Day's out of the picture, we just hope to have Carl back as soon as he's ready." -- Ben Cherington on NESN on Crawford


"Valentine is an idiot. Why does he have Crawford bunting (or anyone for that matter), the first week of March? He's coming off wrist surgery... I get that he wanted to work these guys hard, but there's a difference between, smart, and stupid. It's a 6 month season. Crawford is hurt because the brain trust in Ft. Myers rushed him back." -- Sam B. on FB

Deja Vu All Over Again?

Boston, We Have
A Problem

NESN showed
(NESN broadcast replay of Queens Park Rangers vs. Everton instead of the Red Sox Grapefruit opener... Awful, awful)

'New England Sports Network'
Is Now 'England Sports Network'

If You Spent Sunday Watching Bruins-Rangers, Celtics-Knicks, or Rory-Tiger,
You Wanted to Watch Beckett Pitch the 2012 JetBlue Opener Sunday Night
Like You Used To Be Able To Do On NESN Since the Beginning of Time.
But Sunday Night, NESN Broadcast a Meaningless Soccer Game Repeat from England
Not Even Liverpool, But a Lousy Replay of Queens Park Rangers vs. Everton
Thanks John Henry for Ruining Sunday for Boston Red Sox Fans
And Trying to Ram Futball Down Our Throats Yet Again,
In Lieu of Red Sox Baseball... Shame on You
Reminder: It's Your Hobby... NOT OURS!
