Red Sox owner: "we need a miracle"

14 Comments

FanHouse’s Tom Krasovic — who’s in pretty entertaining form today — spoke with Red Sox owner John Henry via email today about the state of the Sox. The verdict: Not too good:

“At this point we’ll need another miracle. This team, healthy, is capable . . . However, the injuries we have had have been almost astonishing. I didn’t
think 2006 would ever be replicated. But injuries are a major part of
sports.”

As is tough competition. It’s easy to forget what with nothing but bad news coming out of Boston lately, but if they were in any other division their 62-47 record would have them in or near first place. But that’s just not good enough in the AL East.  Not that any of us — particularly those of us who live in Toronto or Baltimore — have any sympathy whatsoever.

It’s baseball, dudes. It happens.
