Terrible Job By Some Guy

Watched about thirty seconds of the "Town Hall" on NESN last night. One fan's question to Bobby Valentine and Ben Cherington came via the Internet. The man claimed that "halfway through the 2011 season" the Red Sox lost him. He'd been a fan for 50 years and that had never happened to him before. He wanted to know how what the team was doing to "bring him back."

Halfway through the 2011 season, the Red Sox weren't too far out of first place and led the wild card race. They had the third best record in baseball. In their previous 69 games, they had played at a .652 clip, which translates to about 106 wins in a full 162-game season. They'd done even better than that in the most recent 25 of those games. All this plus two recent championships, and this man had HAD ENOUGH.

All I have to say about this is that I hope that guy picks any other team and goes and roots for them. Maybe he could become a Harlem Globetrotters fan. Going undefeated every year just might--might!--make him happy.
