It sure feels that way, doesn’t it?
School’s not out yet, but Red Sox done – Scott Lauber has the team out of contention before they can even launch their “Calling all kids” campaign in earnest.
It’s time for the Red Sox to call for a changeup – Chris Gasper says “We’re officially in Bobby Valentine, avert-your-eyes territory, people.”
Red Sox’ chosen path has proven to be wrong one – Rob Bradford says the Red Sox have lost their way.
Boston Red Sox’s 2015 season to date is worse than the 2012 Bobby V debacle; has the team hit rock bottom? – Christopher Smith with another reference to the Bobby V experience.
Four is enough of those. I think we get the point. The Red Sox are bad. Really bad. If they’re not going to fire the Manager and GM, what are they going to do?
Maybe this can make us all feel better:
Not bad, not bad.
At the end of last week (I was away) the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) put out a report on the Wells Report. – Deflating Deflategate
Their conclusions are that the Patriots did not tamper with the footballs and that the Wells Report was deeply flawed.
A bit later Boston Globe NFL writer Ben Volin sent out the following Tweet: (since deleted)
Ben Volin @BenVolin
Kraft Foundation is a corporate supporter of the American Enterprise Institute, author of latest #Deflategate report http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/american-enterprise-
In his eagerness to perhaps get something to discredit the report or nail the Krafts and Patriots on, he failed, epically, in his job. Later:
Nice job. Any repercussions for having to apologize to an entity that you cover as part of your job? Apparently not.
What he’d give to have heard this conversation … – Mark Farinella would’ve loved to have listened in on the conversation between Bill Belichick and Brandon Spikes following the car incident last week. He also gives details of a time when he and other reporters were able to listen in on Bill Belichick’s private conversation. The media version of Spygate.
Sports Writers Hall has home at Fenway – The home of the Red Sox will today become the home of PEN New England’s new Sports Writers Hall of Fame. The inaugural class will be Grantland Rice, Red Smith, Ring Lardner and W.C. Heinz.
I would have just assumed that Dan Shaughnessy would’ve been included in that class.
