(Boston Globe)   It is as if these 2021 Red Sox have been selected by the baseball gods to punish the cheatin' Astros for their 2017 crimes against hardball humanity   (bostonglobe.com) divider line

Yes, these Red Sox and their cheatin'-ass coach.

Well, the baseball gods tried to call the Yankmes but they were too busy sucking each other's dicks. So, here we are.

Sweet Jeebus Boston writers are insufferable.

I was really pulling for the Giants to go all the way. How they were able to just win games all year long was incredibly impressive. Too bad they couldn't finish it out.

Sox are only up 2-1, Boston sports writer, with as many as 4 games left to play.  You may be gloating a little too soon.

And no Rays.

Guess the overall sports gods figured the Cup and the Super Bowl were enough for Tampa Bay.

Let's not go sucking each other's dicks quite yet.

I'm late jumping on the Sox bandwagon. I've only seen the last 3 or 4 games, but man, the Sox are just taking these guys apart piece by piece. Its like the giant planet killer in Start Trek.

Oh Alex Cora? The Astros bench coach in 2017? Who, along with Beltran, probably orchestrated the whole thing?

I like that the best defense Asterisks fans can mount here is 'Cora was also a part of the cheating we did!'

Non-Sox fans don't care about those excuses. Your team of cheaters was caught cheating and people aren't happy they weren't punished accordingly. We will point and laugh in good cheer that a team that cheated so hard isn't getting a WS victory so soon after being caught. Not sure why fans of the Asstrholes care. The MLB commissioner already said, in regards to your WS trophy, it's just a piece of metal.

I don't recall anyone giving Marwin Gonzalez any grief. Except for sucking.
Cheaters!!! Oh they signed with my team? *crickets

Well, he did say:
"We need to be careful because some of us (me, for one) said it was over when the A-Rod Yankees thrashed the sorry Sox, 19-8, to take a three-games-to-none lead in the 2004 ALCS. We all know how that one turned out."

Anyhow, Dan Shaughnessy writes with a wry tongue-in-cheek style and is often critical of the home teams. I always lean toward sarcasm when reading him.

So was yours.

Please don't equate fans of the team with Boston media

Most sports radio / print live and dies on how much drama and controversy they can stir up

Boston sports media is the same....except on steroids strong enough to kill Arnold Schwarzenegger and the horse he rode in on

And Shank took the crown as the worst of all of them decades ago

//man, I miss Bob Ryan writing on the regular

Fair enough (I can't count how many times I've had to post "Please don't take the NY Post seriously, they don't speak for Yankees fans").

That said, you have to acknowledge the unique situation Shaughnessy and the Boston Globe he works for are in, given that the Globe and the Red Sox have the same owner.

oh, there is some level of a conflict of interest for sure - back in the day they did more of their share of looking the other way at what the Tom Yawkey was doing.

Fair weather reporting akin to the Post is what I meant to say in that last line
