Robin Williams (1951-2014)

Famous people die every day, just like the rest of us. Robin Williams died a year ago yesterday. Of all the celebrity deaths in the last year I am still stung the most by his. For the tragic way he died. For someone who seemingly had a great life and everything to live for. For someone who brought joy to and touched millions of lives with his jokes and humor. For someone who didn't know or refused to see the people in his life who loved and cared about him and who would have offered a word of encouragement or help but didn't know.

Suffering from depression is a rough deal. No one but that person knows it's happening. There aren't many outward symptoms and those that are often go undetected. I can't even imagine having the feeling that life is so horrible that there is nothing to live for. Can't comprehend it. So today, in honor of Mr. Williams, I wore my Mork and Mindy tee shirt. Nanu-nanu. <

Looking forward to Red Sox spring training 2016.

Not surprised the Sox were not involved in any big deals yesterday. But sure as hell, big moves must be made in the offseason. Nap will be gone. Swihart likely will be traded if Vasquez comes back healthy from TJ. One or two good starting pitchers must be acquired, fill out the rotation with Rodriguez and some combination of Porcello (because of his contract), Owens or Johnson. Since the team as currently constituted, sucks, blow it up and do SOMETHING.

Cueto and Price will be free agents, among others. It's going to cost a fortune to land one of the big guns but after this season, the Sox have no choice but to spend big on pitching.
