And the next to jump ship is- Wait… You stayed??? Really???
In what can only be (hopefully? maybe?) a good sign for those of us sick and tired of being the only ones strapped to the failure ship, someone who had the opportunity to leave the Red Sox… wait for it… DID NOT.
Red Sox vice president of player personnel and pro scouting Allard Baird TURNED DOWN the opportunity to interview for Orioles’ GM job.
I mean yeah, it’s the Orioles…
But, for the sake of making a Friday stuck at work a little more bearable… let’s pretend it’s a relevant team, k? Like… um… the Cardinals. Or… um… the Rangers. Let’s pretend this is a true accomplishment in LOYALTY.
There. Doesn’t that feel… um… not sucky?
Seriously. The fans? We’re stuck here. Truly. We are strapped to the hull with that wooden mermaid thing. (is that the hull of the ship? I’m lax on my sailorology) And there are not enough life vests for all of us. Especially with people like Theo Epstein grabbing the life vests and taking them to Chicago. WHICH, I MIGHT ADD, IS LANDLOCKED (because lakes don’t count).
In conclusion. I am still at work. And I need more caffeine.
DOWN WITH CHICKEN!
Oh. So. Um. This isn’t good. I Google image searched Allard Baird… and guess what I found?
