There is no god
You bastards. You finally did it.
I had hoped, nay, prayed that the combination of Ozzie's preferences and hatred for Anderson would not be enough to sway proper logic. I had hopes that reason would prevail, and that the Sox would make the correct decision when Quentin came off the DL.
Sadly, I was wrong.
Instead, Anderson's last AAA option is used (because heaven forbid we take a risk at losing our lefty sub .200 hitter that plays a lousy CF) to send him down while DeWayne Wise - somehow - continues to hold a spot on this team.
What the hell are you guys doing!?
Anderson hits better (doesn't take much), fields better (obviously), and runs comparably to Wise. Also, Anderson can TAKE A FUCKING WALK, as evidenced by the three that Wise has vs Anderson's 20). With Quentin not at 100%, you're going to be resting him in the late innings and in blowouts. Also, as evidenced by yesterday's "jumping at the wall for no reason", Pods can't really play center anymore.
Do you really want your "defensive replacement" to be DeWayne Wise? That's like having Thome play 1st base. Sure, he can do it, but it's not going to be pretty.
I'm so pissed right now.
