  1. John Heyman of SI is saying Gonzalez is not going to Boston because both sides cannot come to an agreement. My guess is Gonzalez wants a similar contract to Texiera but maybe the Sox think it could be a bit too high. Red Sox cannot use money as an excuse for not signing someone like Gonzalez. They are slowly sliding down the relevancy pole. With the money Henry has spent on Liverpool, fans will not accept cash as being a reason they cannot sign an elite player.


    1. The, "is it a Red Sox town or a Patriots town?" is an idiotic question to begin with. The media loves to pull this one out everytime it's a slow news day. Both teams are very popular. End of story.
