For those wishing to recall happier times, Game 4 of the 2005 World Series is available in its entirety on YouTube.

Another loss to these guys? Who's the first player to go here soon? Thornton? Crain? Rios? Alexei? The only guy I consider untouchable (as I doubt anyone would offer a king's ransom) is Sale. Anyone else, they can have for prospects.

For those things to happen, we'd have to assume Hahn knows what he's doing, which is anyone's guess.

Anybody care to guess on what the low point of the season is so far? You have so many good choices.
A pretty big positive is that Beckham is still hitting the ball well.

They will get next to nothing for 2 older relievers in their FA year. Ramirez at his age and whats owed to him (23M) has negative worth. Rios might get a decent prospect but nothing great. So not much to look forward to.

Beckham looks like he has finally figured it out. Only took him four years.

I am done with Alexei. Crain realistically is probably the first to go, as he actually has some value. Half the guys on this team right now would be difficult to give away based on contract versus performance.

Thornton continues his awful, awful season. As do the Sox.

De Aza's homer in the 9th is so typcial. He strikes out with the bases loaded but then gets us just close enough to lose another 1 run game.

Poor Hawk sounds like he might not make it out alive on this road trip. Mercy.

3 1-run losses to the Astros and we out-hit them each game.

Players with high value:
Peavy (if he would be healthy)
Sale
Reed
Rios
Santiago
Crane
Quintana
Jones to a lesser extent

I like Santiago because of his high strikeout numbers. He just need to improve command. Hopefully the Sox don't assign him middle-reliever value, which is where they often use him.

Sale, Reed & Jones, Santiago & Quintana are going nowhere..!!

Sale is the diamond. Everyone wants gold for a turd, it doesnt work that way. You have to give to get.
