Given all the factors, if the Sox don't land Machado, they simply just don't have the glamour and pizzazz to attract a player of his caliber.
Bill Veeck was right - again.
You gotta love Yolmer, he's a delight for the fans. But let's face it, folks, he's more of a utility man.
Previously I had not been aware of the inebriating effects of Bud Light. Obviously volume begins to play a role.
The ultimate homer directs a lovefest as ridiculous and far from the truth as his broadcasts.
There have been other setbacks and tragedies. Ahem.
We're not talking about a five-tool player here. More like one tool.
His homophobic, racist tweets are not the lone blemish on his ledger. He received a 50-game suspension for a banned stimulant in 2015, and a year later he punched a teammate in spring training, breaking his hand.
You have to wonder what Rick Hahn's philosophy is in terms of the ripe moment to promote these youngsters. Consistency seems to be absent.

The apology I'd like to hear, but never will.
Was it the "Ricky's Boys Don't Quit" t-shirts? Or the opportunity to see if the Sox could break out of their slump at home where their record was 3-15?
We hear how Ricky's Boys Don't Quit, but even quitters might have been able to eke a few more wins than these guys have at this juncture.
Testing the waters with the future five.
Don't tell me how hard you hit it, tell me how often you hit it.
We've been offered the Kool-Aid by the Sox PR gurus. Like most fans, I very much want to drink the Kool-Aid, but I've never been fond of the lemon-lime that they're offering. I like the red kind. The cherry. Once it's an option, give me a pint.
