Beating A Dead Horse

With all the predictability of the sun rising in the east, Shank's latest (and hopefully last) column on the 2010 Red Sox reads like most other 2010 Red Sox columns. In fact, Shank needs to tell you twice about how many errors the Red Sox committed this year:

Your 2010 Red Sox made a whopping 60.8 percent more errors than the playoff-bound Yankees. The Red Sox finished 12th out of 14 American League teams in fielding percentage. The Sox made 42 more errors than the Yankees in 2010.
You ever get the feeling he's just piling on?

…. struggling for his mind and his life when he cries out, near the end of the play,

The fellow is distract, and so am I,
And here we wander in illusions--
Some blessed power deliver us from hence!
