« Where's the criticism of Boston? »

By Suss
The Yankees have the highest payroll and have a losing record and blah blah blah. Yeah, we know that.

The Red Sox are the defending World Series champs, and kept most of their team intact. They're only 3 games above .500 (before Sunday's game), have a losing record in the division and have the third worst ERA in the American League (5.04, only better than Tampa and Kansas City).

Fans are still kind of in love with the Sox after last year, but they're underachieving as much as anybody else not owned by George Steinbrenner. But if we truly love them, we have to be critical of them as well. It's the only way they'll know.
