Idiot Nation

Johnny Damon pretty much played his heart out in the years he was in Boston. He was an outstanding leadoff hitter, especially in the last few years. If he had to decide between crashing into a wall or missing an opportunity to catch a fly ball, the ball would win every time. He hit two home runs in game 7 of the 2004 ALCS to slam the door on the Yankees. So what if he had a weak arm? Can you say that Manny Ramirez is the perfect left fielder?

Doug Mirabelli is an above average backup catcher who has the ability to catch (block) knuckleballs with very little incident.

When did this "idiot nation" become truly idiotic? Even after a World Series win, I'm still sometimes embarrassed to be a Red Sox fan.

because he's a yankee, i can't cheer him. because of all he did while he was with boston, i can't boo him, either.

for me, it's as simple as that.

The always excellent Sean McAdam took Boston fans to task the next day, and I feel rightfully so. His suggestion: cheer Damon for his first at bat, thanking him for his great service while he was here. After that, all bets are off.

BTW, sorry we missed you at the game Carl. Somebody, um, 'upgraded' our seats.

I think the real question is how loudly can we boo Rudy Seanez?

Just heard on the radio that Rudy Seanez used to do Ultimate Fighting, so maybe the Sox should keep him for those bench clearing brawls.
