Red Sox Tom Werner spanks reporters-Shaughnessy

"The Sox’ home sellout streak reached 552 last night. Boston’s immature owners (Tom Werner went on NESN’s pregame show last night and twice spanked “journalists’’ who raised questions about the club’s operation) want us to promote the brand and tell you that everything is swell in Red Sox Nation. But the sellout streak is in jeopardy, and some serious house-papering will be needed to keep the streak going this year.
  • 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."
