Sticking to it

It's nice to see Kelly Clarkson taking the "let's give props to Papi while he struggle" so fah as to actually try to morph into David Ortiz.


And why not, the dude is a friggin' icon.


But seriously, though, how long are the Sox going to stick with Ortiz?


As long as it takes I think.


Absolutely. Let me say it again — Papi is literally an icon.


And aftah all he's dones for us, all the clutch hits, all the key homahs, he deserves our patience and support unabashedly and unequivocally.


Even when he's hitting .200?


Right now I'd rather lose with Ortiz hitting .200 than win by going et tu Brutus on him.


Yeah, well, that's easy to say when we *are* winning.


Be patient, guy. If Ortiz doesn't come around, then we'll see.



Ah Spring,the birds are singing,the flowers are blooming and the trolls are coming out. This means you,BigBri.

Oh, that's right.He won't post until everyone is off the comment board :))

Don't give the dumb dago any oxygen.



Papi could be hitting .021 and I'd love him. Bill James and Theo be damned.

BTW, for all your Vince fans out there:



At this point, they should probably be letting Papi work out his issues in the number 7 or 8 spot. I know he loves the protection, but he's taking the good pitches away from Dustin right now, and he'll be able to swing more freely down in the order, and hopefully get his stroke back.

Nailed my sentiments right on the head, hb. We are Daniel-San to your Miyagi, Luke to your Yoda, Kwai Chang Caine to your Master Po. I cannot yet take the stone from your hand.

Papi has all the rope he needs with me. And yes, it is nice that we're winning anyway, but really that wouldn't matter. I wear my Big Papi tee often and with pride.

Oh yeah, and Fuck You BB, you miserable basement-dwelling troll...

I've seen big hitters go through worse than this and come out the other side.

Here's my prediction - someone else starts to slide bad and Big Papi picks it up.

Greetings from sunny, ri-donk-ulously expensive Stockholm...

I am with Chops...no reason to not have him in the line-up and I totally agree about him having a ton of rope...but we could get better production in that spot, I think.

wow, bb, that's a nice set of bitchtits you got on ya...stay classy you bloody douche.

So - if Youk is back and healthy put Bay in the 3 hole, Youk back at 4 and Papi can go 5th. They moved Lowell around before and I know they're no where near the same re: icon but just laying back a bit may help Papi. He was talking about Tito like a father - they can work this shit out.

He's been doing a bit better recently. I'd give him till the end of June before I considered replacing him or giving him a lengthy DL stint.

As far as "he's taking the good pitches away from Dustin right now": I dunno chops...have you seen Pedroia's batting average...unless you think he should be slugging more than he is. Protection is overrated anyway.

You know, I'm really bummed that a comic that doesn't even have to reach for a joke about, say, Jimmy Carter's hostage-rescue abilities just went for a cheap shot about someone's weight. Now it seems like I shouldn't have ignored the tranny jokes, and the Octo-mom jokes, and the Chris Brown and Rihanna jokes, because it isn't getting better.

I wish I could keep reading, but this stuff isn't funny, and it's taking panels away from the stuff that is funny.

somebody's a little grumpy

sox inc,

You don't like the tranny jokes? Damn, you've just ruined my week.

Maybe I should switch to tranny stories? I've got a bunch. No joke.

Of course, you should know that I'm just in general not as funny as I used to be ever since I got off the 'roids. (Not only that, but I miss fondling my own bitch tits, too.)

I am funny, though. Get this:

what do you call a dead blonde in a freezer?

A: The Hide and Seek Champion of 2006

What do you call two dead blondes in a freezer?

Frosted Flakes

Sox, Inc,

I am going to go ahead and overreact to your grump dump post... How can you, in any reasonable way, complain about h.b's no fee required publications? He throws something out there everyday, and most of it sticks to the Redsox wall. And then us wierdo's start up a conversation about the shit on the wall - apparently because we don't have enough else to do with ourselves each day (I'm 110% ok with that little fact of my life, btw). Just don't read it if its not hitting the old funny bone. Or better yet, start a strip of your own - if its better than soxaholix, you'll see people jump ship or at least ride on both ships at the same time (no offense here h.b., just stating the simple truth of things).

Had you been paying for a ticket to a Comedy club and didn't like the offerings, by all means Heckle the Fuck out of the guy. But, WTF? just sayin'.

Oh, and the fatty shot of Kelly Clarkson made me laugh. I like fart jokes too, though... so, maybe I'm not the best one to get on the high horse here.

Q: What do you call a dead blonde in a freezer?

A: Empty. Kelly Clarkson got the hungries.

So there's a guy and his buddy who have going to Sox games together for 30 years. One day the buddy dies and the guy is sad, like woe is me and et cetera. Two days later the dead buddy pays him a visit and the not dead guy says wow i can talk to you and your dead and the dead guy says no shit and the first guys says cool, how's heath ledger and the dead guy says he gets a lot of dead chicks. and the first guy says hey i've got a question and the dead guy says what and the notdead guy says is there baseball in heaven because you know youve got Mickey and The Scooter and Joe and Dom and the lower half of Ted and so forth. And the dead guy says "I've got good news and bad news, which do you want first? and the Notdead guys says good news and the dead guy says:

Good News: There's baseball in Heaven

Bad News: You're pitching tomorrow.

Gotta like the blonde jokes.

Dead baby jokes too.

So, husband is sitting on couch with wife watching a nice movie, lots of feel good emotions and so forth. husband says to wife, "Tell me something that will make me happy and sad all at the same time". Wife says, "ok, you dick is bigger than all your freinds'".

"Kelly Clarkson got the hungries."

Nope. Still can't grab the stone, Master Po.

Two peanuts were walking down the street. One was assaulted (a salted).

There you go, sox inc. you asked for the funny. I hope you have your laughing hat on.

Rob, word play isn't funny, it's just confusing to dopes like us

and it all comes back around... All Abord the Tranny Train -

just read a story about how the T driver who crashed the trolleys while texting was hired as a minority - heshe is transgender.

You can't make this shit up.

A blonde was walking down the road with a healthy looking pig under her arm. As she passed the bus stop, someone asked,

"Where did you get that?"

The pig replied,

"I won her in a raffle!"

lc - I've heard that 100 times. Still funny, still funny, I laugh every time. I know what's coming, then it comes, and I laugh.

What did the blonde say when she saw the sign in front of the YMCA?

"Look! they spelled MACYS wrong.

You know, I am not offended by dumb blonde jokes, because I know I am not dumb... and I know I am not really blonde. :)

Papi is good, but he should not be hitting third for a professional major league ball club

How do you know when a blonde has been using your computer?

There's white out on your monitor.

How many feminists does it take to screw in a light bulb?

"That's not funny"

More re Miss Clarkson...

The thing is I didn't know that munching on rug was, you know, fattening and all.

What do you call a guy with no arms and no legs who's in a mailbox?


must have been a nice thick shag.

What do you call a guy with no arms and no legs in the ocean? Bob

what do you call a guy with no arm in center field?


What do you call a guy with no arms and no leg in a hole?


...and to come full circle-What do you call a guy with no brains and no dick in his mother's basement??

Well played, HR. Well played...

With apologies to lc:

Guy walks into a bar and orders a beer. Suddenly he hears a voice...

"My, that's a nice tie you're wearing."

"You know, you really are a rather attractive person."

Rather alarmed, as he appears to be the only one at the bar, he asks the bartender if He hears those voices, too.

"Oh sure," replies the barkeep. "It's that bowl of nuts there on the counter. They're complimentary."

(Complementary, lou. Say it out loud.)

Tommy-point to the first one to raise the "How do you like my nuts?" meme.

One Tommy-point to the first person to raise Vince's "How do you like my nuts?" meme.

Sorry for the 2bl post before. Operator error.

So one blonde was out on the frozen lake with a fishing pole in her hand. She baited the hook and laid it down on the ice hoping to catch something for dinner. She could see the fish coming up to the bottom of the ice trying to reach the worm, but of course, no nibbles.

Along comes another blonde on a snowmobile. She stops and asks how goes the ice fishing. First blonde replies she's just not having any luck at all. Second blonde says, "Well climb on board. We'll go trolling..."

Better, lou?

Well,they like straight sex so you know they're good ;D

What do you call an Irish guy with no arms and no legs, hanging around on the porch?

Paddy O'Furniture.

Try the veal.

What's the best thing about taking a shower with a 14-year-old girl?

With wet hair, it looks like she's 10.

(And now, prison awaits.)

The real question is: Why haven't we seen more from Justin Guarini lately?

I think the answer is that Clarkson slap-chopped him into a mince-meat pie and ate him.

Fettuccine, linguine, bikini, Guarini martini...

On another Boston website:

Masterson vs Lugo
By Kaz | Tue, 05/12/2009 - 11:06pm
I'm less worried about Masterson and more worried about which inning Lugo is going to bobble in the winning run...for Anaheim.

By Kaz | Wed, 05/13/2009 - 12:51am
Oh, man, Napoli better not score now...sigh...

Damnit, I hate when I'm prophetic...

Lugo, you tried to BigBri us in the 8th, but Napoli didn't score. Win, Win, WIN! Three for Three, Boston Trifecta!
