Sox went after Yankees, ended up as Mets
Reader No. 1 is on an absolute roll, sending in this ESPN piece
(whose original headline I stole and shortened above). Reader No. 1’s terse reaction: “Hitting below the belt!” … But we agree it’s a gruesomely accurate low blow. … Man, the Sox have sunk so low so fast. … Also from Reader No. 1: “Theo Epstein’s dream job turned nightmare.”
… Some media outlets are too busy trying to resurrect the cute “long-suffering Boston fans” spiel and “curse” narrative, and ESPN is just cleaning up on the obvious facts, to wit: This is a friggin dysfunctional franchise at this point.Update

and applying it to the current Sox chaos, all I can say: “I love it. God help me I do love it so. I love it more than my life.” ... Total breakdown. Total all-out back stabbing. God help me, as a Bostonian, but I do live it so.
