Shank today accuses Red Sox management of using the celebrations of the 100-year anniversary of Fenway Park as a front to obscure the performance on the field, calling it "a last shameless attempt to direct your eyes away from the playing field." (As if the connotations of a losing record are so complex, your average fan hasn't yet figured it out.)
The solution, says the Bold One, is to hire former Red Sox pitching coach and now Blue Jays manager John Farrell, because no one can turn around a fourth-place team like a guy who is coaching a fifth-place team!
And The CHB -- who when it comes to baseball matters has been right about, what, 3% of the time? -- claims that the Sox need to lose as much as possible "because they need to hit rock bottom in order to get better."
There you go again, Dan, quoting your AA counselor.
