Something I’m curious about. For those of you out there who enjoy Dan Shaughnessy, and I know you are out there, presumably you’re drawn to his style of ripping down athletes and teams and taking shots and carrying grudges.
How do you feel when he writes columns which go to a hyperbolic level in the other direction, such as the ones from the last two days? Yesterday’s Jackie Bradley Jr. lovefest, and today’s At this rate, will the Red Sox ever lose? which starts out like this:
They may never lose.
They may never trail.
Worst to first. Two games into the season, this is the theme of the 2013 Red Sox.
And is it possible for Jackie Bradley Jr. to be the Face of the Franchise after only two games in the big leagues?
I personally find these types of columns even more annoying than the ripfests, as these columns are incredibly patronizing and mocking a fan mentality that does not exist.
What do you think?
