Hey, here's a headline to test the veracity of the any lingering optimism you may be lucky enough to still grip onto:
"Red Sox GM Ben Cherington Says Boston 'Unlikely' To Add Another Starting Pitcher"
No worries. I let go of the optimism precipice a while back and now I'm in a total free fall except for the occasional outcroppings I crash into on the way down, like this one:
"Are The Boston Red Sox Punting The 2012 Season?"
My 8th grade Enlgish teacher Mr. Sferopoulos would be proud of these topic sentences leads:
"The bullpen has also taken a step back..."
"Making matters worse..."
"The outfield isn’t looking that good either..."
"If these were the only problems Boston was facing..."
Of course, all these critics, pundits, prognosticators along with that gnawing feeling in my gut could all be totally wrong.
Certainly. Though you may want to considah putting a deposit down to reserve your rented sunset a bit early this year.
