Red Sox stay in park

Julio Lugo, Kip Wells, Andruw Jones, Alfonso Soriano, Roger Clemens, Jason Schmidt, Mark Buehrle, Jon Lieber and Mark Redman were all mentioned as potential new members of the Boston Red Sox before today's 4pm trading deadline came and went with Mark Loretta, Coco Crisp, Trot Nixon, Wily Mo Pena, Julian Tavarez, Mike Lowell, Jon Lester and Craig Hansen all being mentioned as potential former-Sox. Predictably the Sox decided to go with they players they got, as they were the ONLY team in playoff contention not to make a move (not counting hard throwing righty reliever Bryan Corey they picked up from Texas)...

Meanwhile, in the world's largest bedpan, aka Yankoff Stadium, Bobby Abreu and Cory Lidle were sent over from Philadelphia to fill holes in the line up and pitching staff (they also added another 1B/OF today for some reason, trading pitcher Shawn Chacon). The Abreu move is the equivalent of getting Gary Sheffield back (who is now on the outside looking in) and while Lidle has 8 wins in the NL, a 4.74 ERA this season is only going to go up in the high powered AL...

One thing UB is tired of hearing is that David Wells is the Red Sox big acquisition today. While Boomber is starting tonight, there is no way of knowing how long he can stay healthy and they still don't have a solid # 5 starter, although...

A big time return from Boomer would once again make this The Love Boat...

"So Larry...WTF?"

File under Mike Felger's "Shockers" department: Trot Nixon injured himself again and was placed on the 15 day disabled list. The biggest problem with this was that it didn't happen before he allowed a single/double to turn into a triple/inside the park homer last night against LA...It's been well documented that Trot has been on UB's sh*t list and that UB can't wait til the Sox don't resign him in the off season. As for this injury it should be a good thing as Wily Mo Pena will get more at bats. UB is high on Wily Mo and he may add the power to the line up that the Sox were missing in Nixon...

"I, think Nixon sucks..."

"Mr. Nixon has always been injured..."
