"...I don’t have time to pay attention to what Joe [expletive] is writing."
Really? You can't say "Joe Blow"?

You know, I believe him, although I'm sure he'd prefer a less douchey press and fanbase.

Shaughnessy is considered an expletive.

Beckett actually said "Joe Six Pack" but after last season that's a no-no word in the Sox clubhouse.

It's obviously P-sn-nski, or He Who Must Not Be Named to some.

Or else it's Conrad, and no one's had the heart to tell Josh Beckett that he died in 1924.

So basicaly the Boston press is J. Jonah Jameson, and the Red Sox are Spider-man.

"The Dark Red Sox, led by Harry Osborne!"

Lanoitcnufsyd?


It turns out, tricking Kevin Youkilis into saying "lanoitcnufsyd" in the Red Sox clubhouse is the only way for them to make the playoffs.

So when John Henry recently gave Valentine a vote of confidence, was he doing... the opposite?

If Pedroia says his name backward, does he disappear into the 5th dimension for 90 days?

30 for 30, the chicken and beer story.

30 for 30, the chicken and beer story.

Might be overdue for a story on what the supposed dysfunction is about. Resentment towards the beer & chicken guys? Between those that play hard and those that don't? Some folks cheat at cards? There have been a number of media hints the situation is worse than what has been made public but the underlying cause(s) remains a mystery.

Mods vs. rockers.
