I agree. But, the new GM will probably want his own guy.

The Red Sox have 10 days to extend Francona. I say they keep him.

They got to. ALOT of what happened in Boston is of no fault of his. And like I stated earlier, considering all the injuries and the inconsistancy of his pitching...I think he did the best anyone could.

It was the most surreal night of baseball I've ever witnessed, including Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS and Game 5 of the 2004 ALCS.

It was absolutely amazing, Bill. If you had watched a movie with both games coming down to the final strike, the Rays comeback, the rain delay so that Boston was able to watch the Yankees/Rays for a while, both games ending almost within seconds of each other...jeez.

You would have made fun of the movie, because nothing like that could ever happen in real life.

Let's not forget the NL WC outcome was also up there as well. Both races ending in dramatic fashion on the same night

Dennis Leary: "To all Red Sox fans age 33 & younger: this is what 1978 feels like. Minus the quaaludes and disco."

Lol! :D

If it makes any Sox fan feel better...this is nowhere near as bad as 2004.

And on a separate note...buh bye Mets. Jeez, you ended a distasteful season on a distasteful note.

Thank goodness only the New York varsity gets to play in October.

Helluva way for Jose Reyes to potentially end his Mets career, take yourself out of the game after a bunt single in the 1st inning to preserve the batting title... :eek:

I didn't want the Red Sox to make the playoffs. The injuries to this team hurt them and they had no chance in October.

I just heard Dan Schaugnessy from the Boston Globe on Mike Francesa. He thinks Francona is gone. He shouldnt go. Hes a classy guy and he did everything he could for the team. Its just that they didnt produce.

It's easier to get rid of one coach than a whole team.

I'll be honest, I really didnt have a problem with it. It was a meaningless game anyway. I mean the Mets and the Reds wanted to go home. If you dont believe me, the game ended in 2 hrs. and 15 mins. Look at our team. This batting title is the only thing we have to look forward too.
And also, maybe people think Reyes is selfish or whatever. Good for him. For years, people including yours truly, have been cheerleaders for guys like Manny Ramirez who did whatever the hell he wanted and everyone turned a blind eye. Everyones answer was well thats "Manny being Manny". Reyes does one questionable thing and hes villafied for it? Btw, didnt Jorge Posada take a game off earlier this year? And when he got a double or whatever in the game that clinched a playoff berth/division against the Rays at Yankee Stadium, I didnt see or hear the fans boo.
Also, when Derek Jeter was elected to the All Star Game, he didnt show up. Now you can say the game doesnt count, its an exhibition etc. but it does mean something to the players because its for homefield. And if Jeter elected not to play, fine, but couldnt he at least showed up?

That could have been Reyes' last game in a Mets uniform. As a Mets fan, are you OK with the way his last game went down??

The only saving grace to this behavior is that contract bonuses aren't tied to personal numbers goals like this. So, at least it's only bragging rights.

Yeah, Im ok with it to be honest. They got rid of K-Rod and Beltran. If they get rid of Reyes or Wright or both, it wouldnt surprise me. There was talk of breaking up the core which at the time was Wright, Reyes, Beltran and Delgado when they choked in 2007.

Cosmo....this is not the 1st time this is done. If anyone is at fault it's the manager's decision. I mean he could have easily said,'..dude, your playing whether you want to or not...' And he chose not. It is what it is.

You can debate it or defend it, but there is no denying it's typical Jose Reyes.

Oh, I know it won't be the last also. As a manager you want players who want to play. If a player decides to sit, I say he sits. The last thing you want is to put a player out there who doesn't want to play.

As Sandra said, it is typical Reyes though...

Can we say ANOTHER "Manny"? I mean there are TONS of divas around. Down here, Hanley has been quite the diva lately.

I will not touch Reyes as a free agent. He is a very fragile prone to injuries. Besides this...
