Well, one thing I'll say about the 2012 Red Sox... they sure make it easy to turn off and tune out a game when they fall behind because "gritty comeback" isn't a phrase you'd associate with them.
To be fair there have been the Cody Ross walkoffs.
Yeah, there's the occasional one man heroics, but I don't recall a whole lot of team effort, grinding it out, one run at a time, rally cappahs do you?
This comment on SOSH sums it up: "They lost the manager they loved, their captain, and GM, and are now being managed by a sarcastic asshole. Not exactly sporting a 'run through a wall' mentality."
You know I think that the "chemistry" angle is really ovahplayed in general, but for the 2012 Red Sox I do believe we have some bad chemistry at work.
Bad chemistry? Let's put it this way: These guys are a meth lab being run out of a Motel 6 on a sad, lonely highway in the Ozarks.
Are you kidding me? The air that surrounds this team is so lethal that they are being scouted by fucking Hezbollah.
