    Core players should be money in the bank.
    Sadly you're right. We've got a lot of talent, and guys that are the heart of our team. But there is no Manny or Ortiz in his prime. Kind of scary.

    That's good. I have nothing to say to people that do the spade work and make a call. I do it all the time. But people that fight tooth and nail over a guy they never saw? Heck you could post opinions to the Herald or Globe if that's all you have. But I hope/wish the folks here have a higher standard of proof and thought.

    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    To be fair, Manny and Ortiz in their prime was a once in a lifetime thing.

    edit: Nvmind. Missed the OR.

    Now we see it with Josh Hamilton. People have seen him play in like 5 series and know his big name, but neglect the fact that most rangers fans don't even want him back. They're all over the panic button.

    Gahd.... it's true.

    I have a kid I work with that says "it's not fair!" like a mantra. He's 16 going on 7. I have to ask him if he's a regular here...
