In Sox news- a big wad o’nothing. In Damon news- a big wad o’rejection.
Today might be the most boring Red Sox day on record- a day with about an umptrilion of opinions- but we’ve heard them all before.
Hey, you guys! Carl Crawford’s getting a clean slate. Heard it.
The top 100 prospect list is a hot topic… don’t care…
People in the Sox organization who aren’t Bobby want to manage someday. Employees? Wanting a promotion? Shocking.
Really, Media. There’s so much we’re curious about. Like actual acquisitions and not prophesied ones. Like actual conversations with players about the actual 2012 season. Stalk Dice-K, why don’t you?
But sure. Okay. Don’t give a frick. Then you’ll have something else in common with John Henry.
You know who got screwed in the past 24 hours? Johnny Damon. Is it wrong that, after a Damony week, that pleases me? That pleases me greatly?
See, Tampa just signed DH Luke Scott, effectively ending Damon’s hopes of staying a Ray. So, Damon picks himself off. Brushes off his shoulders. And does what any self respecting “humble” idiot does.
“Didn’t realize the DH and 1B brought the offense down. Thought we would’ve had an offer,” Damon said via text to the Tampa Bay Times on Wednesday.
Poor Johnny. And he’s so humble. It’s about the fans, he says.
“You wonder why fans can’t get involved with players, because they are here and gone,” Damon added.
Right. Because you have quite the track record for longevity.
Have a great Thursday, kids. Wish me luck. Comes back from the dead guy is back and we’re talking division of assets. It’s going to be a looong day.
In other *sniff* news, poor Scott Boras is causing more than eyerolls.
