Red Sox Nation Is Real,.........


And it's spiraling out of control. As I discussed on an earlier thread this Tim Wakefield all star lobbying is REDONKULOUS!!  Well it's worse than I thought. I'm watching ESPN last night and they throw out 4 names while discussing who should start the ALL Star game for the AL.  Tim Wakefield was one of the 4 guys they put up for discussion. Meanwhile he was just out pitched by Felix Hernandez. Felix Hernandez has been out pitching Wakefield ALL YEAR and has half his ERA and no luxury of 6 runs per game run support. Felix Hernandez is just one of about 10 guys who have out pitched Wakefield all year in the AL. How does Tim Wakefields name get brought up for discussion. I'll tell you how. The local media in Boston has infiltrated the national stage. You have Boston HOMERS with a ton of influence across the board. Little whispers in a PODUNK  little city turn into national discussion. I think it's pathetic that the squeeky wheel gets the most oil but that's what happens. Don't be fooled by what is going on in Boston. They understand the influence they have and use it. Over hyping their players to get more value is going on CONSTANTLY through local media which the national guys who were once Boston guys now get wind of and then all of the sudden you hear something enough and it becomes real. I will not lay down without a fight. So here I am.

You know what else is pathetic. For the last week leading up to the end of all star voting, every time you watched a Red Sox game you would learn of the website you can go to to vote for your "favorite" Red Sox to send to ST. Louis.  I. Even the way they phrased it was sketchy.  "Vote for your favorite Red Sox".  It is sad that fans who claim to be so sophisticated and knowledgeable are simple minded unobjective homers. I'm sorry. Ian Kinsler was GOING TO BE THE MVP LAST YEAR before he got hurt. It would be a shame to see the MVP by default start at first base when clearly Kinsler is the better player having the better season.

 

Yankee Universe needs to wake up because the nation and it's voice are getting louder and louder!
