$30-$40 million of John Henry's spare change to spend this Winter. Of course, Henry might decide to spend some of that on fake injury training for his foreign soccer team. Even so, let's say 'DD' has 'only' $30 million—we all know where he's going to spend most of it, right? The vast hole in the lineup created by the departure of 40-year old David Ortiz needs to be filled. The most logical candidate is soon-to-be 34-year old Edwin Encarnación. He's clearly sent signals that he wants to be here—and he worships Papi. Plus, he must salivate at the prospect of lining up The Green Monster 81 times a year. So, let's dispense with the charade and just measure Edwin for a number ten Red Sox uniform jersey (his number in The Great White North). I don't think Andover High School's Ryan Hanigan (the current #10) will mind—if he's still here on Opening Day.
we reported on last July is back in the news. Boston University appears to be moving ahead with plans to sell the building upon which the iconic Kenmore Square CITGO sign sits. As we said last Summer, we have no love for the socialist thugs who run the state-owned CTIGO oil company in Venezuela. Every decent person should boycott their stations and their products. But the sign is a decades old symbol of Boston, Fenway Park and the Red Sox. It needs to be saved. Click HERE to add you name to a petition (now almost 6,000 strong) to save the sign.
