Who cares what the hell the 2004 team made?!? Manny, Pedro, Schilling, and Damon were the only "superstars" on that team. FranKonerko did an outstanding job that season. The way he managed the bullpen down the stretch was brillant. How he stick with Bellhorn no matter what was genius.

By your logic....if this season's Houston Astros had a payroll of $150 million FranKonerko would have led them to an undefeated season...

And for the record, the 2004 Red Sox had a payroll far exceeding $120million for the fine gentleman that talked about putting together a rag tag team, does this sound like one, circa 2004?
