My tone and phrasing were a bit harsh, so I apologize for that.
Only because you interpret it that way, and your view is biased. Approach ten Sox fans in the parking lot before a game and ask them for an opinion on Jordan Danks, I'll bet at least seven of them will say, "don't you mean John?"
His view on how the business of baseball works is probably a lot closer to the truth than yours.
