Jere has dubbed the four-game series against the Yankees "Anti-'Boston Sports Media' Sign" Weekend At Fenway:
Four games, on four networks. Bring your anti-Boston Sports Media signs to the ballpark! Or make them once you're inside. The media's ego has exploded, and they're making not only themselves but us look like morons. It's time to let them know that they don't represent Red Sox fans, that it's not all about them, and that they need to leave the players alone and let them play ball!I really like one of Jere's suggestions:
The only thing TOXIC around here is the MEDIAIf you are sick of reading articles and columns by writers who manipulate quotes, blow insignificant events out of proportion, create drama where none exists, blatantly carry water for the front office or specific agents, allow personal grudges with players to affect their coverage of the team, and/or treat loyal fans with snark and condescension, then make your own sign and bring it to the park!
P.S. Also, stop reading (or listening to) these mediots. There are plenty of less bullshitty ways - like Over The Monster - to get as much Red Sox news as you need.
P.P.S. The Boston sports media should not be painted with such a broad brush, however. There are a handful of writers who do excellent work and stick to the facts when at their keyboards, including WEEI's Alex Speier, ESPN's Gordon Edes, the Herald's Michael Silverman, and MLB's Ian Browne.
