MACKEY INTERIM CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER and EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Run date: 10/12/12 However, We Can Still Remember 1967 and the Impossible Dream Many younger fans think of Red Sox greatest moments by remembering 2004 and that championship come- back over the Yankees, but as for me, I will always remember 1967 as a 19-year- old who suffered through so many bad teams of my youth. All of New England woke up to exciting baseball 45 years ago when Red Sox Nation was truly born. Up to that year, we had little hope for pennants and World Series appearances; they were all in the history books of previous generations. But with 1967 we believed any- thing was possible. The team never gave up. Everyone played above level. No one gave up. We believed we could do it and we did. We were a team that started with 100-1 odds and we beat the odds big time. Since 1967 we expected so much from our team. 2004 and 2007 were great years but the impact of 1967 lives on. Every time I hear a radio station playing "The Impos- sible Dream" I think of 1967. They gave their all every game. When adversity hit, they rose up stronger from it. We almost did everything that year until we met the St. Louis Cardinals and Bob Gibson in the World Series. We lost game 7 but the team arrived home winners and our expectations have re- mained high since then. This year's team should be ashamed of itself. I know I am of them. The Boston Red Sox 2012 Season Schedule Logo? I just looked at the old schedule I kept through this horribly long Sox season and took one final look at it and read that slogan, "100 YEARS. 162 WAYS TO CEL- EBRATE". I might have added "NOT SO." It was one bad game after another. When your best starter over the season turns out to be the number 3 starter and wins only 11 games with a 4-plus ERA, you know the season was doomed from the start. Next year is going to hope- fully be a turn-around sea- 'son. The Sox need lots of help to get back on track. The last month or so they were playing like the hap- less 1962 New York Mets. Spot them 10 runs and they were bound to give 11 runs back. Lots of folks blame Bobby Valentine. He can't take all the blame. I know he seemed useless at times. The only thing missing was the sunflower seeds left over by Francona. I expected so much more from Bobby and it never arrived. He looked mostly like a deer caught in the headlights. He smiled too much because the season wasn't that funny. This was the team's worst season since 1965 when they went 62-100. There were only two things positive I remember about 1965: Tony Conigliaro at age 20 led the American League with 32 home runs and pitcher Dave Morehead EXTRA Innings by Sal Giarratani pitched a no-hitter. That was it for Billy Herman's Red Sox. Most of the season I fa- vored bringing Valentine back next year but now I am of the opinion he has to go and the team needs a fresh start with a new manager, new attitude and hopefully some new players to fill in the blanks we had this sea- son. It must have felt like purgatory for Bobby Valen- tine. Fire him and give him his $2-plus million for next year for all his pain and suf- fering this year. He can go back to ESPN and pretend 2012 never happened. His managing days .are now over for good. This team needs another Dick Williams but they don't make that model anymore. Today, there's too much kiss-S%%#&* going on for its own good. One-hundred-sixty-two ways to celebrate never hap- pened this year. It was more like 162 roads to hell! A Failure of Epic Proportions The Red Sox have stunk before. I remember as a kid many losing seasOns watch- ing only for the great Dick Radatz to come walking out of the bullpen to perform his magic on the mound. Other than that, I went to Fenway to watch the Yankees and Mickey Mantle, to see the Tigers and AI Kaline,or to see the Orioles and Brooks Robinson: Or maybe those Jimmy Fund games against the Milwaukee Braves to see Warren Spahn or Hank Aaron. Back then as l kids we bemoaned the fact that the wrong Boston team left us. Over the team's lifetime, seven times they lost i00 games. In 1932 long before my time, they lost 111 games. In 1954, with Ted Williams back from Korea, the home team won only 69 games. In 1965, even with Dave More- head's no-hitter, they went 62-100. The following year, they were 72-90 and a half game out of last place. Things improved the following year with the Impossible Dream team that won the pennant with a 92-70 record. How- ever, they continued to stink from time to time. Winning the pennant in 1975 only to be also-rans in 1976 or after winning the pennant in 1986, they followed up going 78-84 the next year. It is difficult to remember that the Red Sox were the best team in baseball last year when dawn arrived on the morning of September I st. They ended up going 7-20 last September and the downhill path continued all this season. This September they improved to 7-19 so the status quo just iendlessly continues. They have been crashing and burning all this season. How did they go from the best to the worst in 24 hours? Obviously, Tito: Francona wasn't the problem. Neither has Bobby Valeritine been the problem this season. It is hard to see ai team im- plode as this one has done in the blink of an' eye. With- out sounding too sacrile- gious, I don't think even Jesus Christ Himself could do much with this team right now. The worst thing of all is to know this team had so much raw talent yet did very little with it. 00-tappy Columbus ay NOBILE INSURANCE MICHAEL F. NOBILE, CPCU ALBANO F.
