John Henry is mad about premature media reports?
So it's come to this.
Apparently Boston Red Sox owner John Henry got mad and is further delaying the Theo Epstein to the Cubs deal because of "premature media reports"?
Sit back and put yourself in the shoes of a Boston Red Sox owner.
Your team gags at the end of the season and doesn't even get in the playoffs - the biggest slow motion choke in the history of baseball.
Your manager leaves amid rumors of pill popping and perhaps a lack of leadership.
You hear rumors your team was ordering Popeye's and drinking in the clubhouse during games.
And your general manager wants to leave what was just a couple years ago a world championship team and organization to go to the most famous loser franchise in baseball.
John Henry's not mad about any stupid premature media reports.
He's mad because his toy broke and he's lashing out.
I heard that Bud Selig may go try to be the adult at the negotiations and save the day.
Honestly, I can't wait to hear what the hangup turns out to be, and surely the Cubs won't be portrayed very nicely, either.
My guess is it will be something silly.
I LOVE YOU
Was there, MC ignored me, left >:(
That was a bad first inning.
is anyone on parachat?
Battle through Jason, get to the fifth giving up only those two, Cubs will be alright.
Carlos_RM: This Piscotty fellow...
Carlos_RM: He's not likeable
Well, at least it took Hammel 2 batters to give up a first inning run.
Worst nightmare realized in under 3 minutes.
I'm so anxious I can hardly stare at my screen pretending to work.
Harry Caray video for 7th inning at stretch today! I support this completely.
Maybe he would also be willing to pitch pitches #2 through 80 as well...
Kerry Wood first pitch
Would hope so. Don't think the Cards can activate a retired player for the playoffs.
I'm curious. In your experience watching prospects at the lowest and more instructional level, what do teams teach their young players regarding takeout slides (for instance, would they teach guys to do the Coghlan/Kang type slide, discourage late slides like Utley's and Holliday's, etc.), and has what they teach changed at all in recent years?
