Give The CHB credit: When he wants to make a point, no matter how trite, he can top the naggiest of housewives.
John Henry won't pay $140 million for a player over the age of 30. That's his point. Actually, that doesn't sound like such a bad thing.
But The CHB has a bone and he ain't giving it up.
Just he like said on July 31. And on July 30. And on July 24 (in a column on soccer, no less). And on July 20. And on July 15. And July 11.
All in all, in the eight of Shank's past nine columns have been bitches about Red Sox ownership and money.
And he accuses Red Sox ownership of tunnel vision. By those standards, Shank does his work in a catheter.
