How to topple the evil empire the Boston way

leave a comment »

With brilliant SABR minds like Bill James in your front office, a wunkerkind of a GM, a few quality characters like our own Kevin Millar keeping things loose, and the willingness to spend what it takes for the last few pieces of the puzzl needed to go all the way.

Oh yeah, and drugs. Tons of them. According to the New York Times (hat tip: Baseball Digest Daily), both David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez are on this list that I absolutely can’t wait to see of players that tested positive for steroids back in 2003.

As for Ortiz, I’m just stunned that his overnight transformation from injury-prone Twins castoff to Best Clutch Hitter of All Time was in any way artificially induced, especially with the way his physique and numbers have stayed so consistent since MLB really started cracking down on steroids…
