Looks like whatever drug regimen they had Tavarez on in order to control his blackout rages has not held up--
Time to crack into some ice-cold Thorazine, methinks.
Now look, fellas, I think I've shown an irrational, above-and-beyond level of love for the "characters" on this team in the past. I think I've forgiven quite a number of personal faults over the years because the men attached have worn the right laundry. I've come to the defense of many an asshole simply for the "B" on his cap.
But this is getting ridiculous. How am I supposed to be a Sox fan with a straight face when the above pictured head case is on our team? When Josh Beckett thinks flipping out for a full inning at a batter he thinks walked the first base line a little slowly is a way to--what? Look cool? Prove himself? Be tough? I mean...there's the "Idiots", there's the lovable "wild and crazy guys", but we're quickly going from Romper Room to Death Row here, people, and I am not having fun with it.
I could not possibly dislike Tavarez more. I could not possibly find him more pathetic and boring. What a reject that guy is. Just GET A GRIP, dude! Christ! And while he's at it, someone remind me why he's on my team again?
Although...I do admit I am cheered by the fact that maybe in comparison with these dickheads, people will cut my man Curt Schilling a little slack.
