He made a comment a couple days ago referring to how he hurt his knee when he was 19.

Nope. Some of us still refuse to be the negative nellies that everyone around here want us to be.

Peavy, Gomes and maybe Carp and WMB are almost certain to go.

Indeed.

It won't be a full fledged fire sale. I mean, I fully expect some pieces to go, but it's not going to be a real fire sale.

Jim isn't a child. He has stated several times that he is at least 19 years old.

It was as bad as you probably expected it to be.

Many people, myself included, have worked on trying to show him how to get his points across in ways that don't start these rows.

The freak injury he suffered in the futures at Fenway game in what was like his second professional appearance may have helped a lot of folks forget about him

for Yes, both adding Vazquez and removing Pierzynski were important in bringing about the change

Strictly speaking, you are incorrect.

But if they end up having to honor the other deal they offered the other draft pick that they dropped because they couldn't sign Aiken, they're very far over their draft budget.

Possible they lose their first round (not comp for not signing Aiken) pick.

Only way I see Abreu not winning it is if Tanaka doesn't have to have Tommy John and comes back and dominates again.
