"Each time I've met Huffington, I wondered if she was not somehow the long-lost daughter of Madame Nicolai Ceaucescu, or a genetic cross between Martha Stewart and Count Dracula. Had this Greek-born harpy lived in medieval times, she would have been sewn up in a bag with a rooster and two snakes and thrown into the nearest river." -- Eric Margolis, Toronto Star

I think he's got it in him. He's not as bad as you guys made me think he would be.
I thought there was a typo in the trade at first - I didn't realize that the Pads and Red Sox both have a franchise in Portland (ME and OR though).
If he helps the Red Sox win, well, I'll be drunk for about 5 years after that so I won't remember anyway. The problem with Lou in Boston is that he is, at some point, going to open his mouth and start complaining about his playing time. Out in San Diego, no one would care what he'd say because he's the 24th-25th guy. In the Boston area, the writers will write 3 page feature stories about Lou bitching, and talk radio will turn into 24 hour, Lou is from Framingham so he should be batting clean-up talk.
Ok, so Ted Williams is decapitated now? What will his son do next, sell him to the Japanese dog food company that bought former Kentucky Derby winner Ferdinand?
To get to the playoffs, I'll take NYY (13 years in a row), Bos (WC), Oak, and ChW(toughest division in baseball and toughest to make a pick). I can't trust Minnesota with a back-end rotation of Ponson and Ortiz.
