Red Sox Minor Lines 5/24: Matt Barnes Flirts With Not Being Completely Amazing

Only flirts with it, mind. And more in the way you'd expect two coworkers with no interest in eachother just looking to break up the day to do it.

I'd better stop before I stretch this metaphor any further. It will snap like a rubber band.
