I know, I know - what does Keith Olbermann have to do with the Red Sox, he's not exactly the "go to" source for my baseball needs. I do think he raises some excellent points here though - which others around the interwebs have raised as well. Until the Cubs introduce Theo Epstein as their new GM, and the Red Sox introduce Ben Cherington as his replacement, they'll be no moving forward for the organization or its fans, as it's gotten awful ugly in Fenwayville.
It is interesting to see how the tides have turned over these past few days. Before the Globe released it's ridiculous 1A article, everyone with an opinion on the Red Sox was playing the blame game, with fingers pointed in nearly every direction. Now the focus has come squarely down on the Ownership Group, who in the court of public opinion, have been named guilty of being the anonymous source in the Boston Globe article. Their collective silence has been as loud as Beckett, Lester, and Lackey's - and it's really making me question their ethics and savvy. I've been a strong defendant of this ownership group over the last month. They hired the right people, opened their wallets for top tier talent, saved Fenway Park, and brought two World Championships to Boston. But the way they're reacting in the bad times may be showing what their true colors look like.
