Mo Vaughn told a high ranking member of Red Sox Nation and Boston Dirt Dogs
this morning that he is "definitely coming back to Boston" next season. He
said (with a couple of F-bombs interjected) it doesn't matter who the owner,
GM, or manager is. Mo made it clear (in between lap dances of course) that he
would like to finish his career with the Red Sox.
Mo later went on to further articulate his case on WEEI and other media
Yes Mo tells it like it is, which is refreshing these Days of Dan Dancing, and
it's nice that someone on the planet doesn't detest the thought of paying
baseball in our city, but do we want a 34 year old, hasn't played in two
years, oft-injured, a little heavy, free eating first baseman/DH type, strike
out king with $42 million left on his luckiest man alive/only in America
For what, just to take care of the so-called leadership void? Seems like a
steep price to pay... I think I'd rather give the clout and contract to
And what about the speed, youth, athleticism, and defensive prowess that the
team desperately needs?
Can he help Carl? Or do you use Carl to get him?
Can you buy him for a nickel on the dollar?
Can he still get it done with the bat?
And what about my man Daubach?
If John-Gone Harrington stays Mo doesn't come back. It was Harrington, who was
miffed at Mo for blowing him off in the summer of '98 when he asked Mo to
speak to him directly about his "situation", who ordered Duquette to let him go.
When Werner comes on board, he would consider bringing Mo back. But Tom is
also considering bringing Duquette back as well. Oh well.
Many questions... all to be answered in the next few months.
