Well, here's the awkward truth my dear creepy readers. I went a week on vacation and not once, not a single time did I think about the Boston Red Sox.
There was a time not so long ago when no matter how remote my vacation spot I would have been incessantly checking Red Sox news all day long. And when not checking current news, I'd have most likely been sitting on the beach reading Bill James or some other baseball-themed literature.
Alas, after 3 World Series and 10 years of writing Soxaholix, that is no longer the case. I would say I'm jaded but I think that word carries too much of a negative meaning, as I'm not so much dulled and wearied as I am happy and content.
After very nearly retiring at the triumphant end to last season, I decided I'd stick it out for one more year through the end of this season, but now I don't think that is possible. I just don't have the fire in the belly anymore.
With that said, I also don't want to pull the plug on the community we've developed here.
It's a dilemma.
At times like this perhaps it's useful to ask, "What would Bobby Valentine do?" And then do exactly the opposite.
