until I opened today's paper and read that Canseco will sit this week in favor of Jeff Liefer. They want take a close look at him. That's the Sox saying "We give." All they are gonna find out is what we already know. Liefer blows. His bat is average at best, his speed is non-existent, and his defense is piss-poor.

Why don't they just call a press conference and publicly throw in the towel?

Indians got their asses kicked by the A's. They are gonna lose all week long, and the Sox will be evaluating next season. What a bunch of BS.

Yep, bet on it. He won't get time until the 40 man roster, but he will see some time this year. JR wants to let him retire as a player, not from the DL. Haaarold will get his curtain call. Hope I'm there...

Sad about the Leifer situation, but Canseco has been struggling recently so how bad can it be. This is the last week the Sox can be potential contenders. If they don't do something good, they are just flat done. JM may already be feeling that way with the way they have been playing recently. Lousy timing on that Sweeney incident. Why do the Royals have to get all pumped up for us all the time. I'm telling you, the Sox had better eventually decide they are a rival, because for whatever reason they hate us and the way they play when we come a calling shows it time and time again...

Well, he can't get past the struggles from the bench. At least put the best possible team out there for cryin out loud. There's also a quote from Manuel in the paper today about getting Durham recharged because they need him if they are "going to make a run at this thing." Make up your frickin minds!!! If you're takin a look at Liefer, then you've quit. If you need to recharge Durham to make a run then you haven't.

Well yeah to us fans it might have been. But his point was that if you as an organization feel the team is still in the race then play your best. Don't say yeah we are but then say we are also trying to look at guys. Field the best team that you possibly can.

Yeah, think about the celebration. We'll give him a chair, a motorcycle, some dirt, the ball, the grass clippings, a bag of peanuts, a brick from Old Comiskey, a gift certificate good for free Gatorade.... (and so on and so on)

Author's Note: And then in the game that day, we'll ge pounded by Cleveland.

They say they want to "look at Liefer". My question is what the hell do they not know about him?

I agree, although he has spells where he will look great, and have a short quick swing for a couple days, and then go back to his long, slow, 88mph fastball hitting swing that gets him 3 and 4 K games....
