I'm with you. Really disappointed Santiago didn't get the chance as a starter. Does not make sense. I feel like the Sox org has been a broken record in terms of being content with a crappy 5th starter. We have lost playoff spots too many times thanks to the stubbornness of not plugging that hole with someone moderately capable.
"I'm sorry that you don't like our manager," Williams says he told him.
"I'm sorry that you don't like our 3-4-5 hitters. Or our closer.
"I'm sorry that you don't like our third baseman and our shortstop. Or our left fielder and our right fielder.
"I'm sorry people feel this way about our club. But I also want you to know something about that:
"We don't care."
