Ramy said:It's easier to get rid of one coach than a whole team.
televisionarchives said: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.
BillD1984 said:I was afraid of that when the Red Sox called Hanley up in 2005, and he immediately gravitated towards Manny.
Is this a coping mechanism with the loss . Of course you want your team in the playoffs. The playoss are a different animal.

What a regular season in Major League Baseball: The most exciting finish in memory, and now into the books as No. 5 all-time in attendance with 73,425,568 fans.
MLB announced Thursday that the 30 clubs surpassed the attendance of the 2009 and 2010 seasons. This season's total attendance was 0.5 percent greater than last year's total of 73,054,407, which included six more games played (2,424) than this season (2,418).
Diva is not the right word to describe Reyes...doesn't fit into a Manny generalization. But he is Jose Reyes through and through.
My predictions for the season awards
NL Manager of the Year - Kirk Gibson (Diamond Backs)
NL Rookie of the Year - Freddie Freeman (Braves)
NL Cy Young - Clayton Kershaw (Dodgers)
NL MVP - Ryan Braun (Brewers) It should be Matt Kemp (Dodgers)
AL Manager of the Year - Joe Madden (Devil Rays)
AL Rookie of the Year - Mark Trumbo (Angels)
AL Cy Young - Justin Verlander (Tigers)
AL MVP - Curtis Granderson (Yankees due to bias) It should be Verlander but they tend to not give the MVP to a pitcher
One thing that will work in Verlander's favor is that there is not a clear cut most valuable daily player. as Ellsbury, Cano, Granderson and even Gonzales, whose power production faded at the end, will all get first place votes.
