I do not know what to make of the Boston Red Sox recently. They had everything going for them for a good decade or so since the signing of the worst fielder in Major League history (Manny Ramirez for those who are wondering who that isâ€¦). He was a damn good hitter thoughâ€¦I dare you to argue with me on that point.
Two World Series Rings and an insurmountable lead last August and now infighting, what is going on in Boston? Did you guys get too cocky? Did you think that getting rid of a manager that brought you two World Series rings was a good idea? Did you think John Lackey was going to be that good of a pitcher? His old team wanted nothing to do with himâ€¦those are players you do not spend big money on. Bobby Valentine is a good manager but he is not Joe Torre, Joe Madden, etcâ€¦he is best known for dressing in disguise and sneaking back into the dugout (and the manager of a couple of good Mets teams). He is cocky and was not the right manager for this team. You cannot go from Terry Francona who provided beer for any willing pitcher to drink in the clubhouse and had a laid-back style (which workedâ€¦for the most part) to a guy who is going to Big League you. Baseball players are sensitive and if you try to big-league big leaguers, you are going to create some great made for tv moments.
When are babies players and managers going to man up and keep all of their thoughts in the clubhouse like big boys and girls? You all are embarrassing yourselves and I am starting to think all these crazy people that are picking the Rays ahead of you in the division are sane. I still pick the Yankees in the East by the way in case you and wondering.
You all have a long way to get back to a feared team. Money does not buy you championships, chemistry buys championships or else the Yankees would win every year right? That is whole other articleâ€¦let me not get carried away on that. Your chemistry is broken and you all need to have a serious heart to heart and just go out there and be a bunch of â€œidiotsâ€. And YES, there is a difference between â€œidiotsâ€ and being stupid. Right now you look stupid. â€œIdiotsâ€ can win Rings, just ask Kevin Millar.
