Man, The Red Sox Are Screwed!


I've been doing some reading up on the Red Sox situation which makes the Bonnie situation seem like Sunday School Choir Practice. Theo is gone, Wells and Manny want to be traded, still no new help in the bullpen or starting pitching, Damon is unsigned and even the usually stoic Varitek is sounding worried. So am I. It a shame I'm not from New York then I could just switch to the local NL team when things get hairy.
"It's frustrating as players," said Varitek, who won his first Gold Glove Award on Tuesday. "We're seeing a lot of turnover and a lot of things changing. We've lost our GM, our assistant GM, so we've got to find a way to right the ship. It's got to start from the top down.
"It seems like we've had a lot of changes in this organization for a team that has just come off a world championship and was able to work its way back into the playoffs. Obviously, it starts from the top down. They had a huge part in getting the right people here. Yes, it was a shock. I was really surprised that [Epstein] is not coming back. Hopefully, for him, it's the best decision for himself."
