I’m Torn

I have a problem. Basically, I have no interest in reading anything the media writes about the 2012 Red Sox. I have no interest in listening to anything the media says about the 2012 Red Sox. I don’t need to hear them manufacturing craziness every day. I don’t need their constant sky is falling blubbering. I wish I could just read their game recaps. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to write those anymore.

But, how can I effectively discount them if I don’t read what they say? They write an article about a team meeting. I can tell you before I read it that the only honest to goodness fact in the whole article will probably be that the meeting was held. Everything else will be “unnamed source” or “a player.” But, I’m forced to read the article if I want to be sure.

I don’t want to be sure that much. It’s not worth it.

It’s tiring. The Sox had a team meeting. Yup. Every team has team meetings. Some of the Sox players don’t like their managers. Yup. Every team has players who don’t like their managers. The Sox are sending funny pictures to each other. Yup. So does everyone else.

Any chance we could hear anything about the game? The Sox got their closer back. Did you hear? Did you know David Ortiz was still on the DL? There’s a playoff chase in the works.



  1. I'm sick of it too. I think they ought to lock the media out for the next month and see hoe much that helps the win column. (Something tells me it would get better but Selig would ax it right away)

  2. Wouldn't it be great if it could be like the Patriots? The manager does all the talking. Don't even bother asking any of the players anything. Get out of the locker room.
