I apologize to any Red Sox fans here if you thought I was being a jerk in the other thread. I am not a Red Sox hater. I lived in Boston for one summer. I loved every second of it.

I'm just annoyed by the "Nation" phenomenon and all the fans who have come of the woodwork in recent years. The type of people that are described in this column!!!

http://www.boston.com/sports/basebal...e_fans/?page=1

I am sure all the resident Red Sox fans here (elsid, Orange Shadow, PatsWin, Drek, Evenrude, Crowpointer) were following the team religiously when the Red Sox were fortunate to get a 20K crowd on cold school night during the early 1990s. I have nothing against the diehards, just these newbies that give the longtime loyalists a bad name.

I'm done over there. I know it's crazy, and completely illogical. But I swear, my Rockies thread was killing them. I'm glad jth asked TJ to kill it. Maybe that will count for something. We need to watch that thread, and leave REP messages (or PMs) for each Rockies fan that posts over there. Get them back over here, where the Rockies have won 21 out of 22.

No matter how everything turns out, watching Ortiz and Manny play defense at Coors Field should count for some entertainment points, at least.

I am a homer, but I feel the Rockies are going to come out tomorrow smoking. I don't think it will be 13-1, but I think the Rockies will win convincingly.

Ah, we're in a hotel in Grand Junction. We're catching Game Three at my brother's house, then hitting game four. It's going to be a great trip. I feel like I'm making very personal history with my son. There are so many things you do that just pass the time. You go to a movie, or an amusement park - maybe he has vague memories of it as he grows older. But doing a road trip to catch a World Series game - that's something that will be etched into our relationship like verse in granite. Definitely good times!

Doing something that is a once in a lifetime thing will certainly leave great memories. Have fun Dom.

Just to clarify after talking to my father last night it was my Grandfather who was a Boston Braves fan for those interested. He laughed and threatened to beat me for calling him old enough to be a Boston Braves fan. Anyway he picked up the "family team" when they moved to Millwakee (sp). He simply knows the history of the team back before he was born/wearing diapers

Coors field or bust Woohoo

Why are looking a seat on the champion bus ()

Don't worry I won't speak for the rest but I don't get angry over message board stuff. Unfortunately the Sox have become the Dallas Cowboys of the MLB. I think you need to sit through a season of Jack the Ripper playing to full appreciate a team. I have strange feeling we are going back to the Winning Celtic era- either you loved the team or you hated it. no in between

Picked up a Rockpile this morning for $200, which I guess is alright. I'll use it as a standing room ticket.

Go Rockies!

I agree. Girardi has one 78-84 season under his belt, and he wasn't on speaking terms with the general manager, a huge red flag in my eyes.

Good post, thanks . I actually stopped posting on anything Red Sox because people other than those you listed above were coming out of the woodwork as "Sox Fans". It got really beat. Rally starts hear in 1/2 hour. It is a rolling rally in the duck boats through the city. I will walk over as they approach the financial district. Papelbon is going to be on a flatbed tractor trailer with the Dropkick Murphys wearing a kilt doing the "dance" . Let me add congrats to the Rocks on a great season. Time to gear up for the fun.

I was never a Dodgers fan,actually I resented them when I was younger during the 70's. Now I have to root for the Dodgers especially if Mattingly joins Torre in the Dugout. Ours prayers are with you Joe...

October 30, 2007 -- With Grady Little out of the way in , Joe Torre is the Dodgers' first choice to take over the club. According to sources, Torre has agreed in principle to a three-year deal worth $14.5 million and could be introduced Thursday, the same day the Yankees are holding a press conference to welcome Joe Girardi, Torre's successor, at Yankee Stadium.

And Alex Rodriguez could be following Torre from The Bronx to Hollywood. One of the reasons Rodriguez opted out of the last three years on his Yankees' contract was he wasn't sure what Yankees life would be like without Torre's calming presence in the clubhouse and dugout. In the Dodgers, Rodriguez will find a club in dire need of a jolt at the plate and in the stands.

Third-base coach Larry Bowa and Don Mattingly are expected to join Torre in L.A. Hitting coach Kevin Long is staying with the Yankees and is close to signing a three-year deal worth nearly $1M. There are whispers Jose Cardenal, a coach under Torre in the early Yankees years, will be part of Torre’s staff. Current Dodgers pitching coach Rick Honeycutt is a candidate to remain.

The Dodgers first made contact with Torre's agent Maury Gostfriend before Torre flew to Tampa two weeks ago and rejected the Yankees' one-year offer of $5 million with a chance to make $3 million more in incentives. It's the first time Gostfriend, who usually does endorsement deals for Torre, got involved in baseball negotiations for Torre. Out of respect for Little, who managed the Dodgers for two years and fell victim to a fractured clubhouse and less than solid relationship with some of his coaches, Torre refused comment on the situation.

Little resigned yesterday with $1 million guaranteed for next season. The Dodgers recently picked up a 2009 option on Little for an undisclosed amount of money. The Dodgers started talking to Little about a buyout last week.

Torre, who spurned the Yankees' one-year, $5 million offer to return on Oct. 18, didn't return messages last night.

"(Dodgers GM) Ned (Colletti) and I have been in constant communication since the end of the season and decided mutually that this was the best move for the Dodgers to take," Little said yesterday in a conference call.

Little, who was sacked by the Red Sox following Aaron Boone's dramatic homer in Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS, said talk of Torre taking his job didn't play a part in stepping down.

"None whatsoever; I have personal reasons," Little said.

Though Colletti contradicted Little saying it was a mutual decision - Colletti said he wanted Little back - the hiring of Torre was believed to be orchestrated by owner Frank McCourt wanting to make a splash with his underachieving club.

"I wanted Grady Little back, I encouraged him to think it through," Colletti said.

Because Girardi turned down a three-year deal worth $7.5 million from the Dodgers to follow Torre in The Bronx, many believe Torre was the Dodgers' second choice. However, that hasn't been confirmed.

"We've talked to other people a little bit to gauge their level of interest because talking to Grady at the end of the season I wasn't sure he was coming back," Colletti said.

I don't want to get my hopes up about Arod coming to LA, but McCourt per some insider on a Dodger board basically gave Ned Coletti a blank check and told him to get it done. Plus Arod wanted to play for the Dodgers before the 1993 draft took place, telling the Mariners NOT to draft him so the Dodgers could take him at 2.

It's official, Torre is the new manager of the Dodgers.

Quote:
Torre succeeds Little as Dodgers manager
LOS ANGELES, Nov 1 (Reuters) - Former New York Yankees manager Joe Torre has been hired to take charge of the Los Angeles Dodgers in place of Grady Little, the Major League Baseball team announced on Thursday.
Torre, who two weeks ago declined an offer to return to New York on a one-year deal, has signed a three-year contract.
http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news;_yl...v=ap&type=lgns



Quote:
After much deliberation, Joe Torre has agreed to take the Dodgers' unexpectedly vacant manager's job.
Torre and the Dodgers completed a three-year deal Thursday, FOXSports.com has learned.Don Mattingly and Larry Bowa will be joining Torre's staff in L.A., although their exact roles were unknown.
It was an outcome that hardly seemed likely when the Dodgers' season ended, when owner Frank McCourt and GM Ned Colletti gave then-manager Grady Little a vote of confidence, even though the team finished in fourth in the NL West after having the National League's best record as late as mid-July.
But after Torre declined to accept the Yankees' one-year offer, Little's status became considerably shakier and, besieged by rumors of his impending departure, he resigned his position earlier this week.



The Dodgers can only hope that Torre, who managed the Yankees to four World Series titles and 12 playoff appearances in his 12 seasons in New York, can reverse their postseason ineptitude of the last two decades.
Since winning the 1988 World Series, the Dodgers have not won a single playoff series and have, in fact, managed to win just one postseason game during that stretch
