... The Red Sox Announce New Candidates for
the Team's Red Sox Nation Presidential Election

More Than 100 Fans Toss Hat in the Ring

RSN Prez Election Update: The Red Sox are rolling ... on the election front anyway. “It’s exciting to see that so many fans are immediately declaring their candidacy,” Red Sox President Larry Lucchino said in a statement released today. “We seek those who demonstrate a love of the Red Sox, whether they are celebrities, media members, business leaders, or our heart and soul, the regular fans.”

The team released an updated list of "celebrity fan" nominations today, and it includes: Jerry Remy, Joe Castiglione, Jon Meterparel, Don Orsillo, Peter Gammons, Mike Barnicle, Bill Simmons, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Bob Lobel, Alberto Vasallo, Mike O’Malley, Denis Leary, Amalie Benjamin, Natalie Jacobson, Bill “Spaceman” Lee, Dennis Drinkwater, Butch Hobson, and Sam Horn.

“Regular Fan” nominations include: Rob Crawford – Brookline, Ted Morse - Warren, Conn., Gary Vincent- Fat Face Fenner’s Fishack, Hermosa Beach, Calif., Rick Swanson – “The Fan’s Commissioner,” Jon Sobus – Columbus, Ohio, Eric Schlechte – Boise, Idaho, Ian Baddeley – Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom, Jason Kempen – Kaukauna, WI, David Furbish – Lakeside, Calif., Larry Winer – Lynn, Dave Welsh – North Providence, R.I., Scott Whicker – Shelby, N.C., Nancy Beyer – Orange Park, Fla., Luis Cosenza – Harrisburg, Penn., Laura Schiffer – Brockton, Cathy Mitchell – Sheridan, Wyo., Carole Joyce – Phoenix, Ariz., Jeffrey L. O'Connor – Tulsa, Okla., Kenneth J. Nornhold – Hummelstown, Pa., Joshua Marc Broekstra – Meridien, Conn., David A. Dillavou Sr. – Nashua, N.H., Timothy Walls – Rochester, N.Y., Jared Carrabis – Saugus, Ricky Benedetto – Brooklyn, N.Y., Adam Desautels – North Troy, Vt., Dan LaFleur – Derry, N.H., Brian Polito – New York, N.Y., Ryan McCain – La., Harry Murphy – New Jersey, and Joshua Valk – Texas. Apparently Jessica Biel's application is still being reviewed.

Fans accepting the nomination for president must submit a written or videotaped response to the following questions: A) As President, what would be your first act? B) As President, what would your advice be to John Henry, Tom Werner, and Larry Lucchino? C) As President, what would your advice be to Commissioner Selig?

Fans may vote online on a date to be announced. According to the team, this initial polling will help narrow the field to 25 finalists. The votes and applications will be reviewed by the Red Sox’ fan services department, whose decision is final.

In addition, a panel of celebrity judges will narrow the list further, after debates, to be followed by the ultimate voting period, which will be open to all fans, whether you purchased a membership or not.

Simmons Rips RemDawg in Podcast

Candidate Bill Simmons responded to Jerry Remy's rant against his platform letter in his podcast today. Transcript courtesy of Dan Lamothe at Red Sox Monster. Bill Simmons today:

"Remy has not been this uspet since the Store 24 in Malden* told him they were not going to be carrying Marlboro Reds anymore."

"You know what, Jerry Remy? Normally, I don't feud with retiring second basemen unless they have a career OPS over .660. In this case, I'm going to make an exception.

"Originally, I had planned to bow out of the race and throw my support behind the great Peter Gammons, who really should be Red Sox Nation president. But screw that. I'm going to stay in the race, I'm going to win the presidency, and you know what my first act's going to be? I'm going to push the Red Sox to ban all smoking in Fenway Park.

"You're screwed, Remy. You're going to be announcing Red Sox games with a two-foot nicotine patch on your right arm, and every time the Sox are putting together a rally, you're going to frantically be chewing seven pieces of Nicorette at the same time. Eventually, you're going to need Jim Rice to carry you out of the press box, like he did after you blew out your knee in '83.

"So, I'm coming for you, Jerry Remy. I'm coming after you and I'm coming after your lungs."
