The Boston Red Sox made a bevy of trades and roster moves Thursday and Friday and with new and fresh blood started off August the right way with a 4-3 win over the New York Yankees in Anthony Ranaudo's ML debut.
A 48-60 record. No chance at making the playoffs. Trading away 20% of a team that won the World Series last year in one day. Trading away one of the most beloved homegrown players in recent Red Sox history when re-signing him was still a possibility. A roster that is now mostly unrecognizable to any casual fan. The NFL preseason starting this weekend.
There are plenty of reasons to stop watching, stop following, and stop caring about the 2014 Boston Red Sox.
It was an explosion and when it was over many Red Sox players suddenly had "former" written on their bios. There was good, bad & ugly...happy and sad...news for players and fans as Boston wiped out what many thought was a World Series contender a short 4 months ago.
Ty Law will officially be inducted into the Patriots Hall-of-Fame Friday afternoon, the event is open to the public.
