Red Sox Tom Werner spanks reporters-Shaughnessy
- Scalpers are starving on Brookline Avenue/Boylston Street, and there was virtually no buzz accompanying last night’s Red Sox-Yankee game.
- It felt like Sox vs. Twins at City of Palms, vying for the Mayor’s Cup.
Granted, it was a weeknight in April, but it never felt like this in 2003, 2004, or 2005. Not even close. It’s unrealistic and unfair to expect the fever pitch to remain at ’04-05 levels, but in some ways the Sox today are victims of their own extraordinary success. Sorry, Tom. That’s the reality."
