An Open Letter to the Biggest Red Sox Fan: Mitt Romney!

DATELINE: HUMOR! Mitt Romney, Red Sox Nation turns its lonely eyes to you. We know where you have gone—out looking for a Republican Vice Presidential candidate. What a thankless job. Stop! A crisis of international proportions needs your attention and requires you suspend your presidential campaign. The Red Sox are a mess. The clubhouse is in turmoil. We need you to do the important work of the Nation. Forget the idea of being President of the United States, no matter how worthy the goal is. The country needs you to manage the Boston Red Sox. The Bobby Valentine experiment has become a fiasco. We see you several times each year at Fenway Park, sitting over in the third base box seats, watching intently. We know you are more than a fan. You are an astute observer. This Patriots Day in Boston, you took a day off from your busy campaign schedule to return to your home state of Massachusetts to go where all good Bostonians...

Something is Rotten and Amiss in State of Red Sox Nation

 DATELINE: HUMOR! Sometimes it takes being hit on the head with a 2x4 or a brick thrown by one of the Three Stooges. We begin to see more motives for a murder than Agatha Christie ever planned. Bobby Valentine has caught our attention at last. If Bobby were a pit bull dog, the community would be calling the Animal Control officer. If Bobby were a junkyard dog, there would be a sign warning players not to intrude. For a while, we just laughed off any critiques of his style and personality as overblown hype. We also thought Curt Schilling was being an alarmist in the mode of Paul Revere when the wolves were not at the door. Alas, we now fear Schilling’s ride after seeing the two lanterns in the steeple indicates that he saw the yellow of Bobby Valentine’s eyes. It’s not the ex-pitcher crying, “Wolf!”  It’s the guy with the blood sock crying out loud, trying to let us know there is...

Ahoy! U.S.S. Youkilis Hits Iceberg Valentine?

DATELINE: HUMOR! As the 100th anniversary of the Titanic rapidly sinks into history, the Discovery Channel and History2 have more Titanic specials than you can find on a McDonald’s menu. Bobby Valentine is celebrating the 100th anniversary of Fenway in the same vein. He has just acted like an iceberg and cut a hole into the soft underbelly of Kevin Youkilis. Valentine said that Youk has lost that commitment emotionally and physically to play for the Red Sox. Expect every sports network to have a featured special documentary on the sinking of the Youk. Yes, the man who has parlayed his career in Boston into a long-term engagement with Tom Brady’s sister finds himself  listing badly this season, and now he is taking on water. Sox third baseman Youkilis has not yet been thrown into the lifeboat by the manager Bobby V.  Only women and children have been given the reprieve, but Jacoby Ellsbury’s commitment may be considered safer than the unsinkable Youk. Several...

Slow Start not Option for Red Sox

What is to be made about the first 5 games of the Boston Red Sox season? The level of confidence is not the same as one year ago when Boston fans thought they were getting a star in Carl Crawford, a very solid 1-5 featuring Beckett, Lester, Lackey, Buchholz, and Dice-K. Boston was everyone’s favorite to win it all. Elsbury made up for Crawford’s disappointment but, nothing could have made up for Lackey’s abysmal season. I would have rather had me on the mound then Lackey. He brought down team moral with his constant complaining about the fielding and his apparent alcoholism in the dugout. [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="390" caption="Adrian Gonzalez needs to continue his success in year 2"][/caption] I had never been more optimistic than I was about Boston last year and I have should have known better. Boston tried to do it the evil way (aka the Yankee way), dished out...

Slicing the Red Sox Baloney

  DATELINE: HUMOR! Carl Crawford has taken a page out of the Josh Beckett medical encyclopedia. The latest issue is a sore elbow. This is totally unrelated to his thumb or his sore wrist that was surgically repaired. The Sox injuries to the big stars that have shot their arrows into the air seem to be inexplicable and deadly as a black hole. Without warning or previous augurs to alert the team that the high paid athletes may be out, the saga of Beckett and Crawford continues. This is not the first time this deplorable Red Sox regime has shown all the good judgment of Caribbean dictator. If memory serves, the last Red Sox player who was beset with a variety of minor injuries that grew like Topsy into stints on the disabled list was none other than Jed Lowrie.  Not till his patron saint and guardian angel Theo Epstein left town in a Deus ex machina move did the Sox see the foibles of...
