I will probably delete this tomorrow but I just need to get it off my chest.
Thanks for your part in the 2 World Series we won Jon Lester but FUCK YOU.
FUCK YOU for being a money grubbing jackass that thinks your worth 24 million a year even though the only time you show up is in the post season every 5 years.
FUCK YOU Jon Lester for saying one thing to the fans and media and having your agent demand the exact opposite behind everyone’s back. I don’t believe for a second you didn’t do just exactly that because if you had not then there is no way the Red Sox would have you on the trade market at this very moment.
I am completely over these MLB players thinking they deserve these contracts because idiotic teams like the Yankees offer them.
Lester is 30 years old and has never had an ERA under 3 until this year ( Welcome to the contract year of a professional athlete)
While Lester may have had an amazing post season last year his ERA in the regular season was 3.75.
During 2012 when the entire team sucked Lester’s ERA was 4.82 and during 2011 when the team choked away the playoffs on the last day of the season Lester had a 3.47 so you are trying to tell me that equals a contract of over 22 -24 million a year?
What planet do Red Sox fans live on?
The owners of this team have not been perfect but they spend between 148 and 170 million A YEAR on helping this team win and I can’t believe how many people are picking this one player over the team itself.
I have never been embarrassed to be a Red Sox fan in my life but as sad and obnoxious as this is going to sound I think the worst thing to ever happen to this team was the 2004 World Series Championship.
Its made the fans a bunch of whiny self entitled brats that now think what they want is above the game itself.
If winning 3 World Series and having a payroll at 170 million isn’t enough for you then maybe just maybe you should go find a new team to root for.
I bet the Tigers would take this teams success the last ten years. I bet the Pirates would. The Orioles would and The cub most certainly would but you continue to whine because one player thinks he is above the team?
I don’t understand this and I doubt I ever will.
Red Sox Fans renewed my faith in them this morning when they didn’t jump ship even though last night they all had plans too. Thanks for getting it.
