But God clearly wants Youk in the line-up....The over-rated Washington Post sports columnist Tom Boswell just repeated the conventional disinformation that the '06 Sox have abandoned their homer-hitting ways of the past for a more "balanced offense." If I hear this crap one more time, I'm running naked into the street with a machete! The Sox dumped NONE of their power hitters (Millar no longer qualifies, with a single digit homer total last season), and added a new one in Willy Mo. As the Globe pointed out today, the Sox offense, homers included, is pretty much the same as '05 to this point. But I keep hearing that the Sox are no longer "bashers." Who starts this kind of stuff, and how the hell do you stop it?
I think it was the spate of assorted low-scoring, one run games way in the beginning of the season, Jack. Unfortunately, people make one snap-shot observation and carry it merrily along despite evidence to the contrary. The only thing I can agree with is that the offense has been spectacularly inconsistent at times.
just like God intended. !!! And you capitalized its name and everything! You oughta be ashamed. ;-)
I'll say this: Boswell was absolutely sublime during the 2004 playoffs. Some of the best writing during those wonderful days was found in his daily columns. (He's from a family of Sox fans and clearly was relishing Boston's takedown of the MFY.)
