I feel similarly pleased with the Sox starting pitching. I think if everyone stays healthy, the team will be golden. I'm excited to see what will happen too, when Lester comes back. I know it's WAY too premature to be saying this, but we could potentially have the best starting rotation in baseball. (Or at least one of them.)

As a sort of tangent to your post, I wonder how you feel about the idea of Roger Clemens coming in mercenary-style to "help" out some poor needy team win in the play-offs. I know a lot of Sox fans are excited about the idea of him coming back to the team he started with, but I'm not. Let New York have him back if they really want him.

Not only do I not care for him personality wise, but I'm almost of the opinion of.... I'd rather the Sox lose with "our" guys than to win because we had to come begging to be rescued by some jerk who obviously holds no particular loyalties to anyone. I'd like to see the Sox win or lose this thing on "our" own. Let the Yankees hire the mercenaries.

Okay, the last two paragraphs sounded unnecessarily angry. Oh well. I can't think of a way to re-write my Roger Clemens opinion in a happy way.


hey, thanks for the thoughtful comment. i don't really have any animosity toward clemens anymore, but if he ever came back to the sox, the cognitive dissonance might kill me. plus i'm not keen on the idea of the team kowtowing to his whims of when he'll pitch etc. there's got to be someone else out there who'd give us a whole good year for the same amount of money, ya know? roger's not worth it.
