  • The Red Sox have signed Mike Timlin to a 1 year extension. The official announcement will be made after the World Series.

  • Old habbits are hard to break.

  • A curse on you for giving BDD credit for anything, Steve Silva is pure evil and does not represent Red Sox fans.

  • The more I read BDD, the more disgusted I get. It gives all of us a bad name with its schizophrenic, cynical, snark-only view of the Sox. Yuck.
    I like the Timlin signing — call me an optimist, but I think he’s got another worthwhile year in him …

  • Well done, Nick. Especially Timlin on Kweli.

  • BDD is the print version of EEI – both of which are out to create, fester, and breed problems between fan base and organization. They are, and will remain, free of responisibility or justificaiton for some of the things they do. One of my favorite moments was when Schilling called in on EEI and told the big show guys how stupid and clueless they all were, and how much bad they did for the team and fan base by doing what they do.

  • I’m curious as to why BDD receives essentially a Boston Globe endorsement by being hosted on that site, particularly considering it has no ties to the Globe itself. It might look bad for the Globe (17 percent owned by the Sox) to kick BDD off its site, but it certainly doesn’t make its reporters look unbiased with even that loose affiliation hanging over their heads…

  • Thanks, AG.
    I credited BDD with the link because that’s where I found it. It was a nice catch on their parts IMHO, so I gave credit where credit is due. It was by no means an endorsement of the opinions and views of the site. I often don’t get where they’re coming from, especially this past season when they tried to make Pedro’s return into a boo fest. Still, they’re the site I go to for breaking news regarding the Sox.

  • I NEED OFFSEASON ACTION!!!!!! Screw this world series and fire up the hotstove, I’m going mad.

  • …i guess i’ll have to catch up on this BDD…you guys aren’t even this critical of me, so they must be really rough on the sox…

  • …i’d better duck after i say this, but i just took a look at the BDD site, and i don’t understand why all the harsh comments, unless you all object to seeing a frank, honest, and objective, reality check of the performance, condition, and outlook for your team…i know there’s no room on this site for that kind of stuff, but otherwise, what am i missing?…
