This may have been posted when it first came out but I couldn't find it in our archives. This is especially relevant with Theo heading out the door. The next GM may very well continue the transformation the Red Sox front office has undergone since John Henry purchased the Sox. Then again, maybe he won't.
In any event, if you haven't read the article already, you should read it.
One floor below street level on Yawkey Way, in his windowless corner office which looks out upon a bank of cubicles ...Read More...

Some very interesting comments and ownership insights into the team. Give it a listen.

One phenomena which is quite interesting to me is how most of the analysts calling for Theo's head, and talking about what a flawed team the Red Sox are, are the same people who were talking about how great this team was in the spring and July. People (and by people I include the Red Sox ownership) need to relax and stay the course with this front office.
There are decisions in life, unfortunately, where you do everything right in preparation and consideration, but the outcome disappoints. ...Read More...

I stole this link from Philly over on SOSH: This BA article
, which measures how homegrown each playoff team is, includes a comparison of the Red Sox and Yankees free-agent signings. The results are... not pretty. The whole thing is worth reading, but the takeaway is: in 2011, the Red Sox $67 million for free agent players and got back 2 (2!) WAR. That number is particularly friendly in that a) it doesn't count Dice-K (because he wasn't a free agent, per se?) and b) it uses $14 mil. for ...Read More...

Hall of Merit: Most Meritorious Player: 1966 Discussion
1966 was the first season of major-league baseball in a Deep South city as the Braves moved from Milwaukeeto Atlanta.
In the American League, once again the race ended rather early, with Baltimore taking the top spot in June. Although Detroit, the eventual third-place finisher, got as close as a game-and-a-half towards the end of June, the fell further and further behind as the season progressed. At the end they finished ten games out, and were passed on the day before the season ended by ...Read More...

Sox Therapy: Thank You Terry Francona
It appears that, per NESN, Terry Francona is out as the manager of the Boston Red Sox
. Someone had suggested that we have a "Thank You Terry Francona" thread and that sounds like a good idea. Thanks Terry, you were at the helm during the most successful period for the Red Sox during my lifetime. It couldn't have been easy, and for whatever small criticism I might have had over the years, you deserve the credit for those accomplishments. Good luck in whatever you choose to do next.
Have at it.

Our next national convention will be held June 27-July 1, 2012, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The Twins are scheduled to play host to the Kansas City Royals in a weekend series at Target Field, which opened in 2010. In addition, a trip is tentatively planned to see a St. Paul Saints minor league game.
It wasn't the weekend that I would have preferred (too close to Paula's birthday) but we'll make it work.
