We think right now we're going to make changes when they benefit our club. Down the line, maybe there will reach a point of making change for change's sake, but I don't think we're there yet.
Theo, are we at that point yet? The Bosstones, I and the rest of RSN "...want to know." Unless a sweep by either club occurs this weekend in Hot-lanta, the six games before the Break are going to be huge. Wild card rivals, Oakland and Texas, arrive at Fenway starting on Tuesday. Those six games are going to determine the direction of this club.
Regardless, Curt get on the horn to your former teammate, Randy Johnson, ASAP.
"I don't think we'd ever get involved in [trading] him without him coming to us and saying that's what he wanted," Jerry Colangelo told the East Valley Tribune in comments published yesterday. "And I haven't heard that from any source."
Sell Randy on Boston during the All-Star game in Houston. Curt remind Randy about the excitement in Houston when he was dealt mid-season and let him know that the enthusiasm in Boston would be tripled. Curt relay to Randy that there is no feeling like walking back to the dugout to a Standing O at a packed Fenway. And that when we won the whole thing - he would become a living legend.
