Why does today's column seem like Shank's washing his hands a little bit?
Now what?You were one of the people hyping this team, Shank.
Can the Red Sox summon savior Yaz to throw out another first pitch? Drop Carl Crawford to ninth in the order? Or perhaps this would be a good time to sign Manny Ramirez to a one-day contract so he can tell us how much he loved it here and retire as a Red Sox.
Anything to take our eyes off this train-wreck start for the “Best Team Ever’’ — the one that was going to win 100 games and return to the World Series.
And when a team is doing bad, whose team does Shank say it is?
..your Red Sox were the worst team in baseball.And we are all deeply concerned about what's happening:
We are saddled with a sudden fear that everyone around here badly overrated the capability of the Boston mound corps.Does 'we' and 'everyone' include Shank? Was that a rhetorical question?
Throw in a nonsensical mention of Kendrick Perkins and laying some blame on the hitters (as opposed to any sort of mea culpa), and it's a fishwrap.
