Seriously, can we?
Here’s a guy who went from looking like this when he was with the Twins:
and hitting 10, 18, and 20 homers at ages 24, 25 and 26 (2000-2002), to looking like this with the Red Sox:
and hitting 31, 37, 41 and 54!!!! homers at ages 27, 28, 29 and 30 (2003-2006).
As if that’s not enough, he hasn’t hit a single home run yet this season.
Look, I’m not saying this because I think he’s the only one. Far from it. But on the heels of Manny’s admission and suspension, and this article by Bill Simmons, who is a HUGE Red Sox fan, can we please acknowledge that the Red Sox are just as tainted as anyone else, including the Yankees, and that all the BS Yankee hating was totally unfairly focused on one team, and the fact that the Mitchell Report focused mainly on Yankees and somehow left out all the Red Sox is a little more than curious? Can we? Thanks.
