and the implosion continues, from Peetah's diamond notes:

"Back in May, when then-Red Sox manager Jimy Williams and Carl Everett got into a shouting match in a clubhouse meeting in Oakland, Manny Ramirez put on his headphones and chose to tune out the wild exchange. Now Manny's teammates say he repeatedly tells them that all the discord, front-office interference and dysfunctional atmosphere so bother him that he wishes he never signed with Boston in the first place. "

this guy put it best--

Based on what the Red Sox have created for us already, shame is pretty hard for them to come by.

It also behooves the rest of us to look at our little teams and remember that, no matter how bad it gets, it can always get worse.

The Devil Rays nearly bankrupted themselves. The Twins are playing .250 baseball since the All-Star break. The Expos are averaging 8,200 fans per game. The Orioles are one Cal Ripken retirement away from being unwatchable. The Royals, Reds, Brewers and Tigers are irrelevant.

And they're all better off than the Red Sox. They may be losing, but they're losing with more dignity. They're not firing the pitching coach just to see the look on his face, for example.
