Settle Down, Beavis

We already knew from yesterday's column that Shank's back on the Red Sox bandwagon. Further confirmation is provided in today's column. How do you know for sure?
NEW YORK — Finally .500.

We are one-quarter of the way through the season and The Best Team Ever has won as many games as it has lost.
The column's tone is awfully giddy for a team simply breaking even.

Let's not have one piece of disingenuous writing go unchallenged:
A Hub tabloid declared them “Best Team Ever.’’
Shank did everything except use that exact phrase when declaring the Red Sox 'for real', etc. Nice try, though!
