The Red Sox have been eating retard sandwiches

Lets start from the top...They're going to get rid of Manny Ramirez. They are going to break up the most destructive duo (Ramirez and David Ortiz) since Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig for JD Drew and Julio Lugo? They've always thought how great it would be to use Manny's 20-million a year towards other players, so these are the two they are going to put in there? Players who will cost the Sox 23 million in stead of 20? How about just keeping Manny and A-Gon (20 mil and 3 mil), whoops that ship has sailed. No we won't pay Johnny Damon 13 million because he plays his ass off every day, we'd rather spend 14-15 million on JD Drew. The same JD Drew, who has been called soft by Tony LaRussa (scary after LaRussa pegged Edgar Renteria on the nose) and who has been on the DL 7 times in the last 8 years while recording only one 100 RBI season. This JD Drew is going to join the .277 hitting Julio Lugo, who is a major step down defensively from Alex Gonzalez (almost 3 times as many errors), to add the pop that Manny would leave. How about the protection for Big Papi? Who could provide the fear for pitchers that gives Papi his quality at bats? Could they turn prospects around to Atlanta for Andruw Jones? That could work, but how about this:
If nothing else the city of Boston should be able to enjoy watching Manny pass 500 home runs. As other cities have enjoyed watching home run records fall over the past 10 years, while most of them have been ruined by the steroid era, watching Ramirez join Ted Williams and Jimmy Foxx in the 500+ club would be an experience even the dumbasses in the front office would be able to capitalize on. Instead he's gonna do it in San Francisco or LA?

And mark UB's words right now: THE RED SOX ARE NOT GOING TO SIGN DAISUKE MATSUZAKA. Some how they are going to screw this up. There is something fishy about the way they blew the rest of baseball out of the water with the 51-million dollar bid and now that they are low balling this guy, Ubsey can just smell this sh*t sandwich from a mile away. Only the Red Sox would be this stupid.
Lucky for the Three Stooges and Theo, now that Ubsey's tickets are going to be close to $120 a seat, the douchebag owners won't have to worry about UB making a scene at Fenway.

Congratulations, this excerpt is the most ridiculous statement I've read on the internet in a long time:
They are going to break up the most destructive duo (Ramirez and David Ortiz) since Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig..
Please. I can't wait when Manny is gone and David 'no doubt he's taken steroids' Ortiz hits 22 homers with 76 rbi while batting .268. Gonna be great!!!

1. UB still has his season tickets, but he's gonna have to unload a bunch of them again this year to make ends meet...

2. From the Boston Globe in 2005: "Ramirez and Ortiz combined for 84 home runs and 269 RBIs last season, becoming the first American League teammates since Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth to each hit .300 with 40 HRs and 100 RBIs." Eat that...
