Really? Unless I'm misunderstanding what you're saying, do you seriously think that Rick Hahn traded Thornton because Sox fans/posters on WSI demanded it.

I have plenty of criticisms of Sox management, but thinking that they make trades based on the Chris Rongey phone lines isn't one of them.

We were gaining on a surprising number of teams. The Flubs are only a 1/2 game ahead of us.
