  • “Haywood Sullivan” — I was reading Seth Mnookin’s blog (another example of Sox blogs being better than Yankee blogs) and started thinking that if Haywood Sullivan and Dan Duquette had been half as smart as John Henry and Theo, Nomar could have worn a WS ring.
    John Henry has shown that the Sox are a cash cow. Haywood Sullivan ran a bargain basement operation (and wanted to tear down Fenway, the perfect recording studio and cash cow for NESN). If he’d been smart, he could have kept the Rocket AND gone for Pedro, and that would have been a tough one-two to beat. One year, they would have won.

  • You forgot “The Yankees Suck” — Soxbaby’s first words.

  • I can say with great pride that I will not and have not taught Soxbaby those words.
    He is very smart, and will no doubt be able to figure it out for himself.

  • Ah, but Nomar does have a WS ring, he was given one for his contributions to the 2004 team.

  • Uh, ask Nomore if he’d rather one from 2004 or 1998.

  • I was reading Seth Mnookin’s blog
    I’m sorry. Was it a painful experience?

    Ben K. March 13, 2007, 3:45 pm
  • Ben K., are you a Yanks fan or a Sox fan?
    I’m a Yankee fan, and I think Mnookin is very good.
