The Boston Red Sox: Defenders of the 2004 World Championship!! "Whoever plunges into his experiences with the momentum of hope, will remember so that he cannot forget." - Soren Kierkegaard.

I was just looking through a photo gallery of World Series, Game 4, and I was like actually happened. I mean, it really happened. Wow. *shivers*

Anyhow, back to business. Troy Glaus is being talked about as a potential offensive replacement in the event that the Sox lose Varitek. Bill Mueller would then either be moved to second base or (sorry, Beth!) traded away. Glaus spent much of last year on the DL with a fucked up shoulder, but has been given a clean bill of health by doctors. Glaus hits .366 at Fenway and would probably hit behind Ortiz in the lineup. It's sort of seeming less and less likely that the Sox are going to be able to resign Tek, so this is an interesting alternative.

Carl Pavano implied that he would very interested in the Sox should they be able to retain Pedro along with Curt Schilling due to the fact that he is looking for pitching mentors. There hasn't been much word from Pedro or his agent, but rumor is that the market for him isn't as big as it was thought to be. Pedro...buddy...take the $13 million. For real. Also discussed (briefly) in that article is the possibility of the Sox offering Cabrera a one-year arbitration deal. Which might actually not be that bad of an idea for him since the market is flooded with shortstops this year. He may be able to get a bigger contract next year when shortstops are in shorter supply.

And what the fuck is this crap? Jorge, back the fuck up. Go get some Silly Putty and Krazy Glue and construct yourself a fucking chin.
