Hello, Mr. President

President Barack Obama was in Boston to speak on healthcare reform before the decisive Game 6 of the World Series last Wednesday. On Monday, he called manager John Farrell.

“I’m sure customary to past winners during his administration, he called to congratulate,” Farrell said. “And hopefully there’s a chance somewhere around Opening Day next year when we open up in Baltimore that we might be able to swing by [the White House] and say hello.”

Boston opens the season in Baltimore on March 31.

President Obama noted the great job that Farrell did in his first year managing the team, remarked on the incredible pitching performance by closer Koji Uehara and extended his congratulations to David Ortiz on being named the World Series MVP, according to a team press release.

The Red Sox were also invited to the White House, as they were the year following their World Series titles in 2004 and ’07.

I Johnny Gomes due to be back next year and if not, are the Red Sox going to resign him….he is awesome for Boston.

Personally I think the Sox need every single player back……if they have to give more money for Ellsbury, do it, he’s worth every penny – resign Carp, Gomes, Napoli, Drew and Salty…..they all need to be with Boston (REPEAT).

To bad Obama could not learn how to run things like the Red Sox MGR.-Obama is more like Valintine-my way or I will step on you.
