Do not think it has escaped my notice when Hank Steinbrenner has opened his foul mouth this season. Apparently, we are to believe it was the National Media (tm) firing up the merry-go-round against his pitching staff tonight. Do not be fooled - that man on base four times was really Buster Olney in a Kevin Youkilis suit.
Yeah, I guess that makes sense. If you're paranoid, have issues accepting responsibility for a $220 million third place baseball team, and have just inherited that team from your dad.
Lest anyone think I'm overlooking my own side of the street: the Red Sox are just doing what they do this season: beating up on weak teams with subpar pitching, like when they played that beautiful series at Fenway against the Rangers. It's therapeutic, I'm not going to lie. But the symptoms are just masked, and the problems (coughBULLPEN) are still there.
