Return Of The Jeddy
So, are we to assume from the interplay at the Boston Baseball Writer's Association Annual Dinner that Jed Hoyer is the guy in charge at The Olde Towne Team? He certainly was holding forth with the media on the Manny, David Wells, no center fielder, no shortstop debacles. And considering the fact that Larry Lucchino has apparently entered the baseball version of the Witness Protection Program, we have to assume that Hoyer is our man.
Is it just me, or do the Sox still seem to be spinning out of control? A signing here, a signing there, but NO REAL DISCERNABLE PLAN. And worst of all, no single-guy GM to articulate this lack of a plan. This is troublesome, as we are barely over a month away from pitchers and catchers reporting to Ft. Myers. We need someone who can concisely convey to us how screwed up this team is. As fans, we sense it, but we need confirmation from above!
Jed, step forward and state the obvious theme for 2006: "THIRD PLACE...IT'S NOT SO BAD!"
