Well, Patriots back in first and, don't look now, but I almost, almost think I've bottomed out on Red Sox angst and maybe, just maybe I'm turning slightly less pessimistic...
I mean, sure we lose Paps, but we lose him to the NL and we do have Bard, which has been the plan for the future of the closer position all along.
And Sveum is back for a 2nd interview, and, while it's worrisome that in this managerial search the front office seems focused on inexperienced, controllable "prospects," I guess I can begrudgingly accept their collective wood for the dude.
Yeah, and look on the bright side... how often are you gonna get to have the chance to have a managah whose last name rhymes with "lame," "blame," and "shame"?
Seriously. Think of the fun we'll have.
