CBSSportsline:  After proving 2011 collapse no fluke, Red Sox make moves to improve

This is the best thing to happen in Fenway Park since they bleached the restrooms. My goodness. The sooner the Red Sox begin clearing out some of their toxic mess, the better. The team stinks. The sense of entitlement reeks even more. Describe it how you will. Underachievement. Star players in decline. Ownership in decline. Spoiled players run amok. Bobby Valentine. The Curse of Terry Francona.

Ah, Schadenfreude
