OK, I can admit when I’m wrong. Fox knows what they’re doing. They knew the Red Sox had no chance to compete with the Yankees, so they’re giving disheartened haters like myself something else to watch.
What’s going to hurt worse for Red Sox fans? Last year, when it took a small miracle to get past Oakland just to play the Yankees, then they were five outs from winning and only lost on an 11th inning home run? Or this year, when they had swept through the ALDS; their Yankee killer basically twists his ankle, rendering him lame and ineffective; and on paper they looked like the stronger team but they get swept or lose in five? If the Patriots lose their next game, Boston’s going to be a dangerous town to live in.
