Redsocks snagging Jonny Gomes

Now and then, despite all the pain and suffering in the world, the political polarity that threatens our nation, the rising sea levels and catastrophic storms, you get a good feeling about the future.

That's how I felt yesterday, as I gave thanks for Boston. 

Somehow, when Team John Henry last summer sent the Billion Dollar Odd Lots & Overruns Outlet to LA, I didn't see Jonny Gomes on the horizon. I thought about Josh Hamilton, Zack Greinke and Rafael Soriano filling in the void. They still might. But now, I'm not so sure.

Not to diss Jonny Gomes. Good grief, he could be the next Kelly Stoppach! But they have now made two money splashes this winter: Big Papi and Gomes. Two DHs. How many can you have? It's almost as if George Steinbrenner is running the team from the grave. We just signed Ron Kittle to supplement Claudell Washington!

Gomes is the new Cody Ross.

Meet the new Ross. Same as the old Ross.

Thank you, Redsocks. Without you, 2012 would have been horrible.

For the first time in a long while, the Red Sox really do suck. You are right, their misery has been a soothing balm to our October ineptitude.

There's no face like Gomes' for the holidays.

OK, that even made ME wince.

I'm sorry. All the turkey...stuffing...wine...my head is cloudy..

And the icing on the cake, John Henry announces that Curt Schilling will be a non-roster invitee to spring training because (a) the clubhouse needs an elder statesman to replace Bobby Valentine, and (b) Curt has to pay back the state of Massachusetts. Get out the ketchup, Curt!
