Big spending OK when Sox do it
I can only assume that Mr. King ("Down with baseball’s ‘Evil Empire,’ letter, Sept.) is most likely a disgruntled Red Sox fan who has watched his beloved $146,371,619 team implode like the Hindenburg this year.
Strange how when "boy wonder" aka "boy blunder" Theo Epstein was spending all those hundreds of millions of dollars, and the team was winning, not a peep was uttered about that "Evil Empire." But as is typical with Red Sox fans, now that their team is fighting it out for last place with the lowly Toronto Blue Jays, out of the woodwork they come, shouting "Yankees S
"! at the top of their lungs.
Relax Sox fans, there’s always next year. So grab a beer, maybe some fried chicken, and save the shouting for those beloved New England Patriots.
