Is it safe to come out yet?
Every day it feels like another shoe is about to drop. Â (The baseball gods sure have a lot of feet.)
I’m trying very hard to not harbor ill will toward the Red Sox but it’s difficult. Â While many are happy just pointing the finger at Larry Lucchino for the Globe article that opened up all the wounds that were scabbing over, if Hohler is to be believed there were many people in all different areas of the organization who were happy to spill the beans on the team. The optimistic part of me says it will all make a great book after the Red Sox win the World Series in 2012 but the baseball pessimist worries it won’t work out that easily.
Over at Examiner.com, I wrote about Jacoby Ellsbury winning the “Comeback Player of the Year” award. Â It’s well-deserved and something to be celebrated but it feels almost empty to congratulate him. Â Because it feels like we shouldn’t be celebrating anything. Â And I don’t need to tell you all that feeling this way is lousy.
No one is giving us a chance to feel better. Â The team has no manager, barring something truly bizarre happening, the GM is out the door. Â The owners haven’t issued any statements on the shambles that is the team…and every time we turn around someone is linking to an article about how dysfunctional and doomed the team we root for has become. Â This is not fun.
I feel a bit lost not only in my allegiance to the team but in my blogging. Â It seems most if not all of my fellow bloggers have decided to use this turmoil to their advantage and write entry after entry about how evil Larry Lucchino is or how horribly John Lackey has affected this team. Â I suppose it’s bad for traffic, but I have no desire to keep rehashing how awful things are. Â I want to write about what the team is doing to move forward from all of this and I’m getting no help from the team here.
Step it the hell up, fellas.
So I’m not avoiding blogging because I’m so devastated about what has happened with the team. Â If it feels like I’m avoiding the blog (which I’m really trying not to) it’s because I don’t want to pile on. Â I think we’ve all had enough.
