Oh brother…

What in the world is going on in Boston?

In case you forgot, I’m a Yankees fan.  True and true.  But I got to feel a little remorse for those reeling Red Sox, don’t I?  Some of the worst relief pitching ever yesterday after they had a comfortable and dominant 9-0 lead over the Bronx Bombers.

Fourteen (14) runs in two innings off five (5) different pitchers.  All but one of those runs was earned.

As Sean McAdams tweeted:

I don’t think we can find worse relief pitching that.

So what does all this mean for a Boston team that has lost two since their home, Fenway Park, turned 100?  What does it mean for a 4-10 team with a new manager?

It means it’s a rebuilding year, so deal with it.  I’ve been saying this since the off-season.  This is a rebuilding year for the Red Sox, who need to change their mindset and they way they play.  That’s what Bobby Valentine is there for: a new mindset.  So everyone who is doubting him, including the players, needs to step back and relax, and learn to work with it.  It’s never easy having a new manager, especially one as loud as Bobby V, but he’s not known for being soft and a loser.

Winning will return to Boston.  But in the meantime, I’ll sit and smile as my Yankees roll along.
