I had a very bad feeling at the begining of September that this years Sox were not going to make the playoffs and sadly I was right. Like most passionate sports fans I hid my heart a little. Trying to make it less painful. I had done this yearly with the Bruins until last year. I hid my sports heart anf focused on the Pats, the Bruins pre-season and I looked in on the Redsox like you look in on a train wreck.
I’ve been rabid since I moved back to Boston in 1999, The Redsox have had some recent success in 2004 and 2007. We have a broken team now that has major issues. I assume the manager and GM will be fired. I will also assume Big Papi has played his last game in Boston. We need to build around Dustin Pedroia and Adrian Gonzalez. We need a third baseman to replace oft injured Kevin Youkilis and a short stop that can stay healthy and bat over the Mendoza line. We need to trade Carl Crawford and John Lackey. The problem is who will take them?
This hurts. Terry Francona won two world series champiionships in Boston, his legacy is secure. He will be fine he will have offers by this afternoon. I think we as fans need a group hug, what do you think?
