Is there a curse?
If there is a curse against the Red Sox, we might as well call it the curse of Jayson Stark. You think I was a little harsh on Arod, well you aint seen nothing yet. Jayson Stark is dumb, and it annoys me more because I dont pretend that I could do Arod's job, but I really believe that John or I, or hell 65% of the country could do Stark's job better than he does.
Here Stark says,
Clear your calendar for Halloween week, because this is The Year.That right there is enough to darken my day. I was so excited for the real opening day and Jayson Stark had to come and ruin it. He back's up his claim with nothing (as usual). Well, maybe not exactly nothing, he does remind us that the Red Sox have added Schilling and Foulke, as if I haven't already informed half the country of this fact. He also gives us some inside information like this,
"The Red Sox," says one American League GM, "are the best team in baseball."Uhhhh.....could it be Theo Epstein he is getting his annonymous quotes from? Groundbreaking work here, glad I read this.
Dumb people predicting your favorite team to win the world series shouldn't make you upset, but somehow it just makes me a little less optimistic then I was yesterday.
The real opening day is today guys, and even though the forecast is for rain in Baltimore you all should start getting excited for a season that may be like no other. As a Red Sox fan I feel like an inmate on the eve of my execution, or like a virgin on prom night, take your pick.
