I'm not sure what to think. I don't know enough about the Boston players. Is LaRoche related to Adam?

I hope not. One LaRoche is plenty.

They're brothers and Andy is a potential All Star.

That's what they said about Adam, and he only shows up for half a season. :D

Well, if he showed up for the first half he would be an all-star!

First-hand report about Hansen from a Sox fan:

"Hansen went 2 innings, giving up 2 hits. 3 walks and a HBP... but somehow getting out of consecutive bases-loaded innings to allow no runs. Hansen struck out one. Hansen was nowhere near as effective as he was on Thursday. His first pitch went to the backstop (and immediately caromed back into fair play)... and then on his 4th pitch, he hit a batter with another ball that went to the backstop. (I've seen more balls thrown to the backstop by Hansen over 2 appearances, I think I may nickname him Choate). He was then able to get a nifty Double Play, started with an excellent play by David Bacani. Hansen then gave up a solid single, a ground ball to Chad Spann that Chad came in on like he had never played 3rd in his life (the second consecutive game I've seen him do an ole - a nice play by Keoni De Renne kept the runners at 1st and 2nd)... and then anothe solid single loaded the bases. Hansen was then able to enduce a dribbler to third to get the 3rd out on a bang-bang play. Hansen started the second inning strongly before walking the bases loaded. He was then able to enduce a grounder to 1st and got the putout on another bang-bang play. He then left to a smattering of applause from the frozen crowd that had come to see him. Much of the crowd then left to go to the warmth of their cars. Although I don't believe the umps did a great job tonight, Hansen really was throwing a bunch of balls. Many were up and away. He topped out at 94 on his second pitch of the game. He still has much work to go to get his secondary pitches at a decent level."

For what it's worth.

I think the trade stinks. We'll develop these new guys and then trade them so they can become all stars somewhere else.

With all the bucco offense being traded away, and the pitchers giving up ten runs a game, there is no point in even watching the rest of the year.


We didn't develop Bay, Marte, or Nady.

Or Laroche, Sanchez and Wilson, for that matter.
