BOSTON POST-GAZETTE, JULY 20, 201 2 Page15 A Team Going Nowhere and Fast There we were at the All- Star break. After losing three out of four to the Yankees at Fenway, Boston is 43-43 and tied for last place. Not that long ago we seem to be mov- ing upward, three, four, five games over .500 and now we are back as a 50-50 kind of team. Manager Bobby Valen- tine hasn't been able to do better than Terry Francona. I think a year ago at the All- Star break; we had a better win-loss record. How can we stay in the hunt if there isn't an ace in our starting rota- tion? Jon Lester is not hav- ing a very good year to date. Josh Beckett still is more trouble than he's worth. Dice-K looks like toast. Why John Lackey is even allowed to travel with this team and sit in the dugout is beyond me.

David Bard looks like he's completely screwed up as either a starter or relief pitcher. The team never should have tried to. make him a starter, Other starting pitchers are all no- name guys. Adrian Gonzales is a great singles hitter but that's not what he gets big bucks to do. Ever since the Home Run Derby, he hasn't been the same.

It is their pitching that keeps them from dropping down in the standings. If they had some offensive power, they would be going toe-to-toe with the Yankees. Tampa Bay ain't what they used to be and the Toronto Blue Jays still seem to be missing something to blow away from the Red Sox. Meanwhile, the payroll and the standings are too far apart for most Boston fans. Ortiz is good this year but he's still crying too much for most of us to bear. Thank God for Jarrod Saltalamacchia, he's having a great year and making most of us forget about Vic Martinez who went over to the Tigers and got injured. I am still waiting for the real Bobby Valentine to emerge. We don't need him acting like Francona. We need him to shake up this team and not get rattled him- self. Maybe this season is just a teachable moment because right now even if there were three wild card spots, we would still be on the outside looking in. Perhaps, it is time to unload the trouble makers and discontents and go with the younger players who want to play. Mr. October Speaks Truth to Power in S,I. Interview The N.Y.

J L'i:" i "Stltingi, i,. / the Italian community for over 100 years! and team events following his remarks about Alex Rodriguez and other former major league players. The Hall of Famer apparently will lay low for a while but he was not fined or suspended from the team and will remain a spe- cial advisor to the Yankees. Jackson's troubles began following quotes in a Sports Illustrated interview saying some of A-Rod's stats were tainted because Rodriquez admitted to using perfor- mance-enhancing drugs. Jackson also questioned Jimmy Rice, Gary Carter and Kirby Puckett as Hall of Famers. He also added that he "didn't see Don Sutton as a Hall of Famer. I didn't see Phil Niekro as a Hall of Famer." The 1977 World Series MVP was not allowed to travel with the Yankees to Boston in that four game Fenway series just before the All-Star break to avoid becoming a reported distraction. The Yankees basically told him "Don't call us, we'll call you" when they wanted him back. OUCHI It appears Jackson and A-Rod won't be sharing any- more Christmas cards since Jackson told S.I. that A-Rod was a friend. "But I think there are real questions about his numbers. As much as I like him, what he admit- ted about his usage does cloud some of his records." I think Mr. October is wrong about Jimmy Rice. It shouldn't have taken him 16 elections to get inducted into the Hall of Fame. What hurt him was how sudden his hit- ting skills left him but much of that was due to deteriora- tion of his eyesight which should never have been held against him. However, Jack- son has a right to his opin- ion. This is a free country but apparently not so free at Yan- kee Stadium where they employed him. His remarks about the Dodgers pitcher Don Sutton were pretty much on the mark. You shouldn't get elected to Cooperstown because of duration. Sutton pitched for seemingly a thousand years, so getting 300 wins is not such a great feat. When he played for the Dodgers, wasn't he usually a number four starter behind the likes of Sandy Koufax, Don Drysdale and even Johnny Podres? I could go either way on him. He did have great lasting power. I will give him that and compared to today's pitching "stars," he does keep looking better. Getting back to Jackson, I give him credit for speaking up like he did because most of what he told S.I. was the truth that nobody wants to say out loud in Major League Baseball today. Career All.Star At-Bat Leaders The top five career Major League Baseball All-Star at- bats belong to Willie Mays, 75; Hank Aaron, 67; Stall Musial, 63; Cal Ripken, 49 and Ted Williams, 46. Second Half Needs to be Better Than First Half The Boston Red Sox need to get their act together and quickly or we'll be fighting the Blue Jays for last place over the rest of the season. Right now things aren't that good and Bobby Valentine looks like a dog chasing its own tail. What a sad tale indeed this season is. It brings back memories pre-1967 for me when the Sox stunk and that was all we ever expected from them. Members of Red Sox Nation too young for those memories can't believe the frustration my generation of fans had to endure for so long. Forty-five years ago this very season, Red Sox Nation was born as the Sox showed new life and a desire to win. There were dark years but always the hope we could actually do it. The '75 Sox were homerun guys hitting 240 of them on the way to another World Series and losing Game 7. Overall, post-'67, the Sox have given fans lots of excite- ment and some of the usual frustration. This year and last year have been madden- ing for the crowd as the Sox appear to have lost all its desire to actually win. That attitude needs to change fast and furious. GEM GRAVURE COMPANY, INC.
