Very interesting interview with Sean McDonough on WFAN from last week. He rips the Red Sox owners, he says he only took their offer because of his father, and now that Will is gone, if he had it to do over again he would be broadcasting Mets games. He rips the club for not giving up Casey Fossum for Bartolo Colon. He thinks Theo is getting a free ride in the Boston media. He said the Patriots got a free ride this year, no one criticized them at all, and they’re not likely to be contenders next year. A few other items in here too that make you think Sean is trying to get himself fired or something. (It’s a Real Audio clip)
This is the ultimate dilemma. Of course fans want the Red Sox to win the World Series, but the dilemma is be careful what you wish for because you might get it. And if the Red Sox played the Cubs in the World Series, one of those two franchises will be permanently and forever altered. One of them will never be the same. So remember, while winning is the ultimate goal. If you’re a Sox fan or a Cubs fan, it carries a steep price tag. Life will never be the same.
