First of all, this article was published last week. Second, did you read it? Based on your comments, you clearly did not.

I do not think the column was that bad. He actually praises the Sox for not standing pat and growing attached to certain guys so they will remain in contention for years to come.

While Mike Downey is a pretty bad journalist overall, this column wasn't that bad. It's just saying how baseball is a business and requires roster changes- even for world champions.

I don't know how I missed the comparison to the Braves, my mistake.

But that 'overhaul like the Marlins' and the lack of loyalty he says the Sox showed to Aaron, El Duque, Blum, Thomas, Everett, and others sure lead to the prelude of bashing.

Got to admit, Downey is not known for his Sox-friendly comments....

But again, I admit my mistake of not seeing (?????) his 'trying to build an annual winner like the Braves' remark, it changes what it looked like.

Thanks for jumping on me for my mistake, I am man enough to admit it.
