No way the Red Sox is more attractive, they are toast.  No farm system, little MLB talent and are way behind the Yankees, Rays and Blue Jays in their division. 

On top of that they also play for a city and fan base that expects to win so your leash is going to be short.  

Red Sox fans suck. All Boston fans suck.

Bruins fans are OK.  Not the brightest bulbs, but not entitled either.

That's true, I was actually a Bruins fan during the Orr era.

I spent a few nights listening to Fred Cusick on the transistor radio under my pillow

Bruins fans are OK and by the time that Bobby Orr came along, they had earned him, and the league was due for a shakeup, and he changed everything.

When I was in my last year of elementary school, in the fall of 1963,  a few students in our class were treated to a trip to a Junior A game in St. Catharines, about 6 miles up the road and about 15 miles west of Niagara Falls.  Back in those days the 6 NHL teams owned players as young as 14, playing for the junior teams across Canada.  The St. Catharines team, in OHA (Ontario Hockey Association) Junior A, was owned by the Chicago Black Hawks and, in recent memory, players like Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita, Phil Esposito and countless others had played there in their late teens.

So this game that I attended in the fall of 1963, the St. Catharines Black Hawks were playing against the Oshawa Generals, one of two OHA teams owned by the Bruins (the Niagara Falls Flyers were the other, that's where Derek Sanderson came from), and Bobby Orr was in the lineup for Oshawa and without looking it up I am going to guess that he was 14.  Did he do anything memorable?  No, not that I recall.  But that's not the point.  The point is that I saw Bobby Orr play Jr A hockey when he was 14.  So, bow down.

Having a runner start at second in extra innings is really dumb.  

Maybe they should just have tie games like hockey used to?

Yes, football had them too.  If you can't determine a winner playing real baseball, real hockey or real football, just call it a tie.

Myself, I would prioritize a blanket DH rule over ties/extra innings/

Lewicki should have been a position player.  He’s always hustling.

Me too. My first team, thanks to my uncles who were Orr nuts. Watching Rangers-Bruins final in the spring of ‘72 is my first NHL memory. Had a couple of his posters on my bedroom wall. So I was a Bruins fan 5 years before I became a Wings fan. But by the late 70s I was cheering for the Habs over the Bruins when they played each other in the playoffs.

I knew it!  I knew they were going to tear it all down again...they just let Bonifacio go!!  What possible reason would they have for that except a salary dump??  That's it, I'm done.  **** this ****ing team.

Calm down Chas, they can resign him to a minor league contract with options when he isn't picked up this spring.

He'll be deluged with offers, he'll easily get 5/88.

Get Springer for LF, please.

While I like Springer, he's 31 and I just don't see Al going that route. Perhaps if he doesn't get any long term offers? Or maybe if Hinch is hired it increases the odds?

I'd play 5 games for $88.  Where do I sign?

No stros please....there's lots of other options for managers and players...

I don't think a ****ty team/organization like ours should be taking the moral high ground if we can improve our team.  Hire Hinch, who is the best available managerial candidate, and have him help bring in Springer, who might be the best offensive player in free agency. Fills a need.
