Add to that Manny is at the very best day to day and Ortiz has flown back to Boston to have more heart tests and will not return to the lineup until given a clean bill of health, toast dosen't even begin to describe the situation.
Its even beyond "Powdered Toast Man".

Sadly Theo may be able to use injury as an excuse, but I still find tremendous fault with the front office from July forward.

The only chance the Sox have is if they could play every remaining game against the powerhouse Angels of Southern Canada, the only team they can still easily handle.
Hahaha, so bitter. Funny, the Red Sox are absolutely worthless without Manny and Ortiz. I mean, their starting pitching sucks ass, so all they've got is Manny and Ortiz. See ya next year.

The Phillies are still in it, despite having a pitching staff to rival my brothers 2004 Little League All-Star Team.

anyway, right now the red sox are asking for the moon, so i dont see the cards doing it unless they lower their price a lot.
Wells requested that the Sox not trade him to St. Louis, and they were said to be honoring that request.

It would be nice if the Dodgers flinch and give away one of their top prospects, but I don't see it happening, which means he's likely going to SD.

Although LA must be foaming at the mouth with the thought of having both Wells and Maddux for the playoffs...

See you next year is right, cause the Angels have not been in contention since March. At leats the Sox were competetive through July.
The Sox are without a little more than Manny and Ortiz currently:
Manny
Ortiz
Varitek
Wakefield
Nixon
Wily Mo Pena
Lester
Clement
Gonzalez


Lets see how the Angels perform without Guerrero, Anderson, Cabrera, Salmon, Erstad, Napoli, Colon, Escobar and Santana.

Yeah, seriously, how can the Angels possibly be 7.5 games behind a team that's batting .255?

Can somebody please explain again to me why the Phillies gave away Lidle and Abreu?

They didn't wanto pay Abreu's remaining contract, so they had to throw Lidle in the mix to get the Yank$ to absorb his deal.

I'd be pretty pissed as a Philly fan, they gave up way too soon, and if they miss the WC by 3 games or less, I'd say that trade would be the difference for sure.

The Abreu trade worked!

It was guys like Abreu and Lidle (Burrell and Lieber too) that made the team lazy and coasting through games. Pat Gillick nailed it by saying, with Abreu gone, Utley feels he can be a leader, and the attitude of the team now shows that.

I still don't think we'll make it. Ed Wade cursed this team. But Gillick knows exactly what he's doing, which gives me a good feeling.

If we'd given Burrell away (we had a deal that he declined because of his no trade clause - damn you Ed Wade) to Baltimore, it would've been a perfect deadline for us.

Now we have a right handed bat in Conine and a fifth starter in Moyer that won't hurt us financially.

Trade away Hamels, Myers, Utley, Howard, Rollins and Gordon for a dozen water bottles and you might have yourselves a World Series winner by that philosophy.
