This will get Roadhoused.

I will say that I hate to see the career of such a promising player get ruined by the Red Sox organization. Clearly, they have no eye for talent, which explains their track record of poor results.

Seriously, though, it's a shame ID's Friday has been ruined.

Exactly. Since this is a negative BA thread, I'm sure a lot more people will be excited.

Its not like he didn't do what he was asked. 3 games, a couple good catches, a hit one day and and RBI the next, pinch ran a run last night.

I'm sure he'll be back up after Sept 1, when the time limit expires.

I do wish Brian could play for a team as an everyday player. But the being in the Red Sox organization is not the place to do that.

I wish him well though.

FOBAAA's are crying everywhere.

I don't hate him, but his fans just invite it. I actually respect what he said after he left the Sox. He knew he was given shots and that he didn't take advantage of them. Perhaps he can be an everyday outfielder for a AAA club like the Pittsburgh Pirates or Washington Nationals. His only spot on a contender would be as 4th or 5th OF. I have a feeling KW knew Rios would be available when he traded BA.

This is why FOBAs ****ing piss me off. His extremist supporters always use BA as a tool to attack Ozzie. Seriously, it is getting old and is just annoying. I'm sure Terry Francona sent BA down because BA is white. Afterall, that's the same crap spewed by (some) FOBAs when Ozzie started other people over BA. Ozzie isn't the reason BA never developed into an every day CF. BA is the reason, and he said as much in the press.

I said it a month ago in the thread when BA was sent down and I'll say it again: IN OZZIE AND KENNY I TRUST. They saw something we didn't over the years and that is what governed their decisions.

[Thread hijack]

You know, I used to call bull**** all the time on people who acted like the NL was some kind of majorly inferior baseball to the AL, but look at Cliff Lee and C.C. Sabathia in the past two seasons - their numbers have been disgustingly good after the switch to the NL.

Is there a link for this "news"? Its not on the red sox site.

Also, there are different rules if they are replacing people on the DL. Apparently if he were to replace an OF who is hurt, he'd be alright. but he wouldn't have had to have been called up at all.

What are you talking about? He was blocked in ST by the great tandem of Wise and Owens. Nix was playing LF while Brian needed to "rehab". And that Erstad **** is still applicable.

why? because we are talking about who has blocked Brian in the White Sox system and who is blocking him in the Red Sox system. Take whatever time period you want. Just being blocked by Wise (who they needed to keep 6 OUTFIELDERS FOR) is a stark contrast to being blocked by the Red Sox OF players.

You agreed with the poster who called me out. In short you were attempting to justify your stance by antagonizing the "antagonists". This ball swings both ways. If people would ignore the "antagonists" this thread would die too.

You feed the trolls, you can't complain when the thread deteriorates.
