    I’m intrigued at the possibility of Maddux.  The pitching staff can use all the help it can get.

    Also, it looks like the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

      It was Popeyes.  If you’re going to make a joke, at least you could get it right, genius.  You’re making yourself look like a buffoon.

        What better way to change the culture in the clubhouse than by changing brands?

        Actually Colonel Chicken has military experience it would get the ire of the Red Sox up!

    The Cardinals are the only ones taking a flier on Ryne Sandberg….Why not the Red Sox, look at his minor league managing skills as a prospect waiting to be called to the show, he is champing at the bit and could translate well into the Majors, the Red Sox should at least give him an interview and see how he could fit their club house, he did win PCL Manager of the year and seems to have a good feel for managing.

  8. Unbelievable how this website can’t have any serious Red Sox talk, without it digressing. Chicken joke is old, move on.

  9. Seriously, move on

    I would rather have them take Maddux in as the pitching coach, but it’s understandable if he’s looking for a promotion. As for manager, I would be open to Dave Martinez, Mackinin or Alomar Jr. I can’t wait til they get this sorted out and really get underway with their offseason.

  11. agree, think he has great potential.  beats another retread here.
