Panic Button - II

Last night's Red Sox blowout loss to the Texas Rangers, 7-2, provides Shank with the opportunity to point out all that is wrong with the Olde Towne Team.

Early on, there's this whopper:

I hate to be negative (really), but when do we come out and admit the obvious?
From here, Shank highlights the awful April start, conveniently omits the next two months where the Sox had the best record in baseball, points out all the Sox injuries, then compares the upcoming Sox road trip (rough) to the Yankees & Rays (playing the Orioles, Indians & Royals).

A more honest assessment of the situation would have included that May - June period where the Sox fared much better recordwise, and that the Sox ought to do better when their injured players come off the disabled list. Positive items, however, have no place in certain Shank columns, and this is one of them.

Didn't this ass clown just write a mea culpa about how he was wrong on David Ortiz? if he's wrong on this is he going to write ANOTHER mea culpa?.....point is, Shank has NO can only write, "OPPS! my bad!" many times....get lost, Shank......your opinion carries no more weight than the dude sitting at the end of the sports bar.
