We all knew it was coming. Elimination, on the 23rd of September, on a warm fall evening. Too early, but inevitable these last few weeks. Now starts the building of the 2007 team. The manager and front office must use these last seven games as a chance to look at and evaluate the young talent and make sure they can be incorporated into the 2007 team. So we'll see many unfamiliar names out there. Heck, we already have with all the injuries, the injuries that killed any chance of a post season in 2006. And the big decisions that are yet to come: Trot, Manny, and all the rest that will be the subjects of future posts. This blog is a year round adventure. The off season will be full of Red Sox news, and also an exploration of everyday life and noteworthy news events. So stick around, ya hear? One other thing.....we have two more against the Jays. To lose both would be flirting with third place. The Red Sox, as I said in an earlier post, are not a third place team. For the record, the Jays beat the Red Sox Saturday, 5-3. Let's make sure that doesn't happen today, or Monday.
