From the Boston Globe:
“To say we’re no longer underdogs seems to be going too far,” says club president Larry Lucchino, tempering annual expectations. “We’re in the division where Goliath resides.”
Ah yes, those poor unfortunate underdog Red Sox. How they manage to survive in today’s game with a $160,000,000 payroll is beyond comprehension. Sorry to burst your bubble Larry, but the cutsy little “oh poor us, we can’t compete with the big bad Yankees” schtick go old like, 4 years ago. Grow up, you’re starting to sound like an 8-yr old girl.
