[QUOTE]The media is like sharks circling around a dead crew. The whole business of the Boston media dredging up story after story of allegations, finger pointing and blame totally stinks to high heaven already. It was a bad season, we've had them before and will have them again, it's over let's move and on and stop all the shouting and pointing already. Reality shows are structured on dysfunctional people. They get high ratings. Stories about dysfunctional ballplayers sell papers( I guess) , but it is irresponsible of our own media to keep rubbing salt in the wound. Inquiring minds may want to know, I'm not one of them. The people in charge are likely aware by now that things have to be fixed( at least I hope they do!), is it productive in any way to keep the misery alive for the whole off season? Time to cork it and move on....don't we have a hockey team and a football team they can talk about?

Some of this is salacious, but most of the stuff coming out simply paints a picture of a "boys gone wild" clubhouse, where too many simply didn't give a rip about the TEAM or the SEASON!
This is relevant, as MOST RS fans BLEED with every out! Every at bat! Are we a bit too invested? SURE! Too fanatical! You bet! Many / Most RS fans really count on this team! We NEED this team! We put out for them, & we expect them to put out for us! You want to play in Tampa Bay, where nobody cares??? Go for it! RS fans Love, eat, breath, sleep, RS red! When the picture being painted comes out, story after story, anecdote after anecdote, that these guys gave up on Tito, the ownership, themselves, THE TEAM, & the fans?????? It really hurts! It's despicable! & it must change!
I would seriously prefer that they saved their money on these high priced FA & fielded a competitive team of dirtdogs like Pedey! This team collapsed because of too many malcontented underperforming millionaire BRATS! The inmates were running the asylum!!! Even a few of the guys I have LOVED slid into this mindset! I sensed a real sea change ever since Lackey arrived in ST last year! THIS GUY MUST GO!!! HE IS POISON! I may be way off, but it seems the whole pitching staff followed him down this dirt road dead end! GIVE HIM TO THE YANKEES!!!
It does matter!
