Time For The Clown To Go

Somewhere George Steinbrenner, The Babe, and Billy Martin, are tossing back a few, and having one hell-of-a laugh at the Boston Red Sox expense.. Jeez, we used to say, before we "knew" him, why in hell would the Yankees give up on such a young pitcher with so much talent. Well, we've known the answer to that question for quite some time now, but if you didn't, you found out last night. Getting right to the skinny, Alfredo Aceves is a, crazy, undisciplined, unpredictable, nonredeemable, irreparable, flunky. Given enough rope, not only will he hang himself, but he will take everything within his reach with him, as evidenced by his half-hearted, ill-advised, "throw" to home plate last night. You know the one… the 'I'm going to punish you for making me stay out here,' throw. Yeah, that's the one. The man is an unmitigated disaster. No matter how well he does in the "good times," that melt down is always going to be just seconds away and it's not a matter of "if" it's going to happen, but "when" it is going to happen. The moment the Red Sox have enough healthy bodies in the bull pen, this clown has to go. The Yankees came to that conclusion years ago, and it's high time the Red Sox admitted they were right.

The last thing ownership needed was a display of the kind witnessed last night. Not only were the conditions horrific for a baseball game, but the "Olde Towne Team" rivaled the conditions. It was like some nightmare playing in slow motion stuck on a loop 24/7. Hell, I'd rather watch Bob Montgomery catch a double header than whatever that was last night. At least Bob was "entertaining." Not to bemoan the point, but it was as if the the Sox were bit players in some awful 12:50 am SNL filler, with "Fredo" hosting! And while were at it, I don't ever want to have to look at Josh Reddick in that awful "Joan of Arc" hoodie ever again. I'm having a flashback right now!

I know it's early, but most of the Red Sox play to date has been positive and fun to watch. But 2012 raised it's ugly head last night and tried it's damnedest to get it's greasy chicken fingers onto the side of the 2013 bandwagon, and pull it back down into obscurity. It was all a little scary and I may need counseling, but let us all agree never to speak of it again. It's the only way that aberration will ever go away. And speaking of aberrations, let us also agree the time has finally come for Alfredo Aceves to find a new fan base to taunt and torture…
