Laying Low

You'd think the recent performance of the Red Sox, losing three of their last four games to the Kansas City Royals, would be enough to get Shank to write a panicked column, comparing them to the 2011 'chicken & beer brigade', or whatever other excuse he'd have to take a piss on the Olde Towne Team.

Did John Henry lay down the law already, or did Shank clam up on his own, thinking self-preservation? Is Shank on extended vacation? Did Whitey Bulger rub him out? Theories are welcome!

Of course he's on vacation! What, you haven't noticed that he takes off for several weeks at a time, more than once a year?

Sometimes it's tough to tell, when he's still doing Comcast's The Baseball Show on Saturday mornings, as he did this past Saturday.

One thing is clear; the Globe doesn't pay him by the word.
