If that’s the case, how did they trade him for such an excellent comedian?

Kind of perfect that he’s a knuckleballer and shares his name with an absurdist comic.

Red Sox already have Wright’s headshot from his first stint with the team: http://bit.ly/NHzYxR

Wright, on the trade: “It beats selling used paint.”

First thing he’ll do is take a walk around Fenway. On the ledge.

A wRC+ of 125 in 533 PA in single A in his first taste of pro ball in 2007, then the next year he had a 144 wRC+ in 358 PA in A+, and 163 wRC+ in 163 PA at AA (also in 2008). Yeah, you got it buddy, I am a racist to have been psyched on Lars 2008. On a non-sacrcastic point, there is certainly one thing that all looks the same to me: moronic claims of unfounded racism.

Yeah, because apparently every Sox fan is John Perrault to you. One of us is racist, so we all are? Grouping people together because of 1 thing they share in common…there is some great “non-racist-like reasoning” if I ever saw some. Again,, I hope the sarcasm isn’t lost. Furthermore this has something to do with overrating Lars Anderson in 2008 after two solid minor league seasons, why?

Also, you might wanna read your own article:

“Talking about that guy, he actually called me a racial slur in the beginning of the game, so he was the only one I had a problem with. … People in Boston don’t even do that, so I don’t know what that was about,” Crawford said this month.

Do you guys really think citing assorted examples of people being racist in the Boston area is enough to label an entire city racist? There isn’t a place in the world that doesn’t have some form of racism every single day. I’m surprised you guys can reach the keyboard from your high horses.

Fun fact: If you type “the most racist city in America” into google, the first result is Boston.

Set aside the assertion that every Red Sox fan is racist – what does it have to do with the ranking of Lars Anderson? It’s not like every city rates their own prospects.

There are more appropriate forums to vent frustrations regarding Boston.

As someone who grew up in Boston, and now lives south of the Mason-Dixon line, I can say this:

If you think Boston is racist, you don’t know what racism is.

this is one of the dumber things ive seen on FG. boston is a city full of huge liberals…for the most part, they arent racist, and in fact, are the opposite. regardless, why would you come on here and post something like that? just to get people to respond with how dumb you are?…Get. A. Life. Buddy.

Boston isn’t racist what an absurd stereotype. You must be a jealous Rays fan. Flags Fly Forever!
