Ask, and ye shall receive:
It’s liberating.

We can all stop now. We can stop scoreboard watching, and doing math tricks, and harboring silly hope that there’s a big surge ahead that will thrust the Red Sox into the 2010 playoffs.

Better to cease with the torment now and accept the obvious. The Sox are not going to be in the hunt in October. The Boston baseball season is going to end Sunday, Oct. 3, at Fenway Park. When Game No. 162 is over, the Yankees will leave town and start their American League Division Series. The Sox will scatter to the four winds.
I think having 20 guys on the disabled list during the year is the only reason Shank's column isn't as vicious as I was expecting.

Anyone else believe Shank had half this article written back in February?

The Curly Haired Bastard has half that article stored on a template somewhere.

Well, I hate to say this but his columns lately have been less annoying then the Tony Mazz columns. Tony Mazz's last two were flat out ridiculous - because Johnny Damon declined to come here, the Red Sox are no longer a preferred destination for Free agents (tell that to Lackey, Scutaro and Cameron) and the next was how terrible the Sox will be next year (I guess picking up on Shank's bridge year obsession). You may have to start a Evil Tony watch page!
