Well, I just found out about this thread tonight, and after reading through JH's answers, I must say I was VERY impressed with them.
I liked everything he said and how he said it. Good sense of humor.
I liked the fact that LL wanted to extend Nomar and Pedro. I liked that JH nixed the Bigbie deal to get a better one. I liked the news that other GM candidates are being interviewed in a less overt fashion. I liked his outlook on the current market (since it concurs with my own) of too many dollars chasing too little talent. I liked what he said about our young players getting tested this year (I'm thinking Pedroia, Papelbon, Delcarmen, perhaps).
Quite a night on the board with the Beckett deal going down at the same time, eh?
1) It DOES make one wonder what the Boston press is all about though, doesn't it? It's like we've been getting the wrong "inside" scoop from the mediots re: Sox management about so many things. Makes one wonder how off they were about what was really going on with the Duquette/Harrington years as well. We've been saying "don't believe what you read in the papers" for years but, gee, you REALLY can't believe what you read in the papers.
2) It also makes one wonder whether Theo's approach would have been the one most posters here would have preferred. I'm not sure right now.
Anyway, good show everyone and thank you, JohnWHenry!
Good night and good luck!
