JOAN P ARMSTRONG, First Justice of this Court. Date: April 26, 2012 Sandra Giovannucci, Register of Probate Run date: 5/4/12 EXTRA Innings P What Remains Wrong with the Boston Red Sox? This team starting bleed- ing last September during the Collapse of 2011 when the team posted an unbeliev- able 7-20 record down the stretch. September was so bad that off season, you knew one way or the other Terry Francona was a goner. How- ever, little else was appar- ently done to clean up this team and they started 2012 just as badly as they mished up last season. As of April 24, the Sox were 5-10 and in last place in the AL East. Even Baltimore looks better than the hometown team. They broke a five game losing streak against the Twins winning 6-5 in the 94 inning. They had to bring in David Bard from the bullpen in the eighth inning to quiet things down. Here's a great quote from GM Ben Cherington to USA Today recently, "When you're not winning games and the start hasn't gone the way we want it to, sure, we've got to consider changes because it does increase the urgency ... He's (Valentine) doing the best he can with the roster he has, it'll get better. He knows that and I know that." Thing about that state- ment[ Basically Ben is say- ing that Bobby Valentine was handed a roster don't blame him. Over the off-season, I expected more changes but they never came. You can't just blame the old manager for everything that happened. More than less, this is the September 7-20 team of last year. Besides retiring Jason Varitek and Tim Wakefield, what else changed REALLY? The Sox payroll is $173.2 million. The previous management of Theo Epstein handed the same team back for a pos- sible rerun of things to come. You can't predict in- juries of which there have been many..Think Closer Andrew Bailey, basically out for the count. Think of' Jacoby Ellsbury injured again. Think of our bullpen that couldn't hold a nine run lead against the Yankees at home. Think of our shaky starting rotation. On most teams with many veterans, you would have expected they could have policed itself. This team didn't last season and the seeds LEGAL NOTICE MICHAEL SORRENTINO (AGENT) 95 CRESCENT AVE., SUITE 107 REVERE, MA 02151 (617)347-9104 TO THE OWNER OR OWNERS OF THE FOLLOWING VEHICLES.

The Red Sox remain good enough most of the time to beat many of the not-so-good teams in Major League Baseball, but how they can play against the Yankees, Rays, Tigers, Rangers and Angels will tell all. Last year, the Red Sox even looked like the 1962 NY Mets against the Orioles. I still sense much dysfunc- tion in the Red Sox club- hquse. Red Sox manage- ment handed Bobby Valen- ti,nea box of worms during the off-season and his job is to put humpty-dumpty play- ers back together again. P.S. I hope management isn't waiting for Dice-K to return from his Tommy John surgery. His latest re- hab outing down in single A was plain sickening. Court's in Session Here Comes The Judge The federal perjury retrial case against Roger Clemens has begun; you can follow the trial against the 24-year baseball legend online at dailypitch, us atoday, com. When is a Bunt Not a Bunt? Alberto Gonzalez and the Texas Rangers got a lucky break from the umpire crew in a game against the Ti- gers. Alberto squared to bunt hoping to drive in the go- ahead run on a squeeze play. The ball hii the bat and glazed off his right leg before bouncing off the ground and out toward the pitcher's mound. Then, Texas got a big break. Instead of being called a foul ball, it was ruled an RBI single in the 11  in- ning. Rangers win the game 3-2; After the game even Gonzalez admitted the ball hit him at the knee and the replay confirmed it all. The plate umpire had a chance to watch the replay and said the ball indeed did hit Gonzalez but his crew never saw it happen. He added, "We called what we saw." Is it time for instant replay? You tell me! Our" Red Sox Playing Like 1962 Hapless Mets Apparently, those stormy clouds that brought the rain that saved us from a third game at Fenway against our archenemies the NY Yankees must still be hov- ering over the Red Sox club- house just like last Septem- ber. Starting off 4-10 is bad enough but losing a game to the Yankees after leading 9-0 through six innings is beyond the pale. The bullpen looks god-awful. In that April 21 game, our bullpen gave up 7 earned runs in the 7 th inning and another 7 runs for good measure in the 8 th inning. People are starting to blame Bobby Val- entine for the whole mess. At the 100 th anniversary game at Fenway, former skipper Tito Francona re- lented and showed up and got the best ovation of the afternoon. Some fans even want Francona to return. This is unfair to Bobby V. with the players he is given to work with. Things seem to be getting frustrating for all. Recently, Valentine went to the media with his criti- cisms of Kevin Youkilis and then Dustin Pedroia went on offense saying of his new manager, "We don't do things like that around here." Just look at this team. Every time you look around, isn't someone going on the DL? Our starting pitchers are shaky at best. Our out- field seems manned by three fourth outfielders. In the first 43 2/3 innings, our bullpen pitchers have given up 43 earned runs. Who's hitting on the team besides Big Papi, Adrian Gonzales and Pedroia? If you count last September, this team is now 11-30 in its last 41 games, good enough to be those rookie NY Mets of 1962. Who Attended the I00 *h Fenway Birthday Bash? I saw two old names from 50 years ago that few even remember. There was third string catcher Don Gile who played behind Bob Tillman and Jim Pagliaroni. Offen- sively, the bat boys back then hit for a higher aver- age than he did. Once I think in 1962, he had five hits in- cluding a homer in one doubleheader. I think he had five hits more the rest of the season. The other guy was Bob Heffner, a great middle innings guy, who often set up for Dick "The Monster" Radatz, He even was a spot starter from time to time when things got desperate as they seem now. Heffner was a hefty looking guy too and threw really fast and fu- rious not unlike Radatz who was simply amazingly great. New Byrd Flew into Fenway The Boston Red Sox just picked up Marlon Byrd from the Chicago Cubs and hope- fully some new blood on this sad sack team can only help our sagging prospects. I still think Valentine is the rght guy to run things. I was not a big fan of Francona over the past three seasons but I guess I was glad to see him show up for all the recent festivitie at Fenway. W'+h the way things are going, he's probably very glad it was a short visit and back to the broadcast booth for him. Why Should Things Change? : One of the few and biggest changes for the Red Sox was acquiring Bobby Valentine. What else did management rio? All the same characters returned minus Varitek and 'Wakefield who retired. The :beer and chicken may be :gone but does that 2011 i mindset still reside inside the clubhouse? No way that our relief pitchers should be this awful. Instead of #-%*&A+ to the media, Bobby V. should have just been direct with Youkilis and moved him further down the lineup. His hitting still stinks. Pedroia, on the other hand, should learn to keep his mouth shut while Youk and his manager sort things ...who_ .aa, only .do. ha. much..lrt ........ . ........ . ..... ..-.,_
