As long as his LOCKER was cleaned out, I can breath easier!

Seriously though, I didn't think Joe was coming back this yr. We may have seen the last of Joe in a Sox uni

Default Wait...

He cannot be back to cheer on his team? I thought that I saw him in uniform and in the dugout for the Toronto series. He could coach Fields at third, maybe?

In theory, a locker could be cleaned out and then he comes back and puts his stuff back. Maybe Crede wears his uniform to bed. You know ...superstition.

Why do the Sox always seem to treat players so poorly on the way out?

How exactly are they treating him poorly?

You know, my dad once told me when I was in high school, "I can't stop you from doing this, but just know, that if you do this you're going to be in trouble."

So KW says to EVERYONE: "I will not deal with Scott Boras."

And Joe then goes and signs Scott Boras.

Is KW looking out for the Sox? Yes. Is Joe Crede looking out for Joe Crede? Yes.

KW can't control Joe Crede.

The Sox did nothing wrong. What would you have had them do? You honestly want them to offer a long term, big money contract (which you know Crede and Boras are looking for) to a man who has a bad back and can't play on a consistant basis? That is hardly a smart move for the team.

I understand that Joe has done a lot for this team in the past, and we will all appreciate him for that, but you can't trust in his ability to start day in and day out which he would need to do to justify the contract he is (most likely) seeking.

Bingo. The sox gave Crede an opportunity to prove he was healthy by signing him to a 1 year deal, even though he's been battling back problems since 2005 and was fresh off back surgery, and he showed he wasn't up to the challenge. The Sox did all they could possibly do for the guy, and I'm sure if he put up the numbers and showed the ability to stay healthy, we would probably be seeing him in a Sox uni next year.

Folks:

There's more going on here then you think.

I spoke with a source earlier this week. They said that both times the Sox were in Anaheim, Scott Boras met with the Angels then supposedly got information back to Crede.

The Sox were not happy about this and badly want to file tampering charges, right now though they don't have any concrete evidence.

It sounds like if Joe Crede were the last 3rd baseman on Earth and the Sox needed one, he wouldn't be getting a call.

Thanks, Lip. Can't say I'm surprised -- especially given the Angels' affinity for doling out terrible contracts.
