The great pumpkin

In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
OK I know Halloween is coming and all, but I think the Globe is getting a little carried away with the spooky lighting.


In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
Then again maybe it's fitting...


In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
I mean we've got Ben Cherington confessing that the front office wasn't "disciplined enough"...


In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
And then in the same story you've got the same Cherington telling us that a "healthy" Lackey will will be counted on as one of the five starting pitchers in 2013.


In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
Yeah, talk about a razor blade in your Halloween apple.


In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
Trick or treat, bitches.



LSD on the gummy worms.

There is Meyer's 151 in an orange, and Halloween I on the BluRay player on a big screen.

It's all in good fun, but can we resume the wallowing in pity in a few weeks, as there's still some games being played... Coco had a very nice year but would have been run out of town (a second time) if he cost the Sox a post-season series with a simple dropped ball... Same for Brandon Phillips, clearly cost the Reds the series by trying to take third with no outs in the first inning of Game 3, even though any of the other 29 teams would be lucky to have him... Let's cut some slack... Tough year, tough couple of years actually, but Fenway is still a nice place to hang out... Meanwhile going to Game 5 tonight in DC... Hoping for a better time than going to that last game in Baltimore last year...

Lackey is the rock in Charlie Brown's halloween bag. But speaking of LSD on gummy worms, I think Slow Joe ingested a few of those last night.

barrel, meet the bottom. Lackey talk?


Naah, Slow Joe was doing crystal meth. See him giggling? Crystal Meth user.

I'd rather ingest 5 razor-filled apples and then take those razors and carve out my eyes than watch Lackey pitch one game for the Sox next year.

I don't think BC is said anything in that interview - read his lips - it's just "hooooooo, hooooooo" - he's in the spirit and drinking the LCD KoolAid re: Lackey.

Interestingly enough, I had heard recently that the old "check your candy for tampering, etc." warnings have never borne true in reality. Kids who have ended up eating tainted candy or razor apples have always been poisoned, not by a psycho homicidal neighbor, but by a relative.

So it would be someone we trusted who would end up being the poison in the apple in our eye... Pedroia, noooooooooo!

I'm going to be the contrarian. I think Lackey will be a plus for the Sox next year. If the team is decent (we can hope, can't we?) he could win 15 games and give them a lot of innings. If his ERA is less than 4.00, and he gets 200 innings, he has succeeded.

"few more weeks..."

Hmm... maybe... for me every day could be the last one... retirement looms people.

Say it ain't so, HB...say it ain't so.

Artists never retire.

Comeon, H.B. Just another day...then another day...then another day.

Just like life, ya know?

Have a great weekend all. Hopefully we'll have something fun to yak about on Monday. Right, H.B.?

Slappy benched in Game 5! $30 million, or 55% of the entire A's salary on the bench. Gotta love it!

Nats last night had plenty of similarities to that final game last year in Baltimore... The home crowd got their own huge huge dose of "wait til next year"... It does in fact happen to others too... And so it goes...

Hate to admit it H.B., but it does feel like the end of an era all around. Go out on top after 9 yrs (more or less) a la Seinfeld?
(will lc then start a reality comic strip "Curb your Enthusiasm for Rented Sunsets"????)

Also, Farrell is not the answer, he just looks the part. Since they've gone this far, I hope they deep dive younger-not good that even Toronto has more talent. What's the point of signing 28 & 29 year olds to giant contracts, their best years are already behind them! Better to trade away older talent & reload for one to two years, then acquire complimentary free agents to a more solid, talented younger core.

Let's all check back in around the 2014 midterm elections, when Romney's policies turn the House back over to the Democrats.


Anything fun to yak about yet??
