    HOORAY!

    It'll be interesting to see what happens with the Sox pitching staff since Schilling is going to be out for the better part of the year. They have plenty of young arms, but you don't want to burn them out.

    I am confident of a Red Sox repeat. Dice-K should be better. JD Drew and Julio Lugo should be better. David Ortiz should be pain free now and should have better power numbers.

    Maybe they could sign Clemens for the year.

    Maybe the Sox can put a perfect season together, since the Patriots obviously can't.

    Given how terrible he was this past season I don't see how Lugo couldn't have a better year.

    Booooo Sox.

    I'm still mad that they cheated and stole the World Series.

    Charlie Hough and Phil Niekro were knucklers and they both pitched into their 80's. :D

    He's entering the final year of his contract, but he does have two more team option years. He's healthy though and from I've read he's been working very hard this off-season. He probably wants to have a good year to get that $20 million option picked up for 2009.

    I read that as "Spring is on its way!!!-- Go Sex"

    Guess I have a different idea as to what Spring is all about and stuff.

    He needs to lose those hair extensions - but it looks like he'll be raring to go come April.
