Does anyone really think for a second that a pitcher eating some fried chicken and drinking a few beers on their off days caused the downfall of the Sox in September? Really? If that was the case then companies all over the world would be dropping like flies. This is nothing more than a modern-day witch hunt by the Red Sox ownership to rationalize why they lost. The ownership simply can’t understand why they lost. Simple as that. In their minds they can’t understand the fact that they spent more money than 90% of the teams in the league and still lost. It couldn’t have been because they sucked. No, it must have been because of that damn Popeye’s chicken. The fact is that when you win anything goes. When you lose everything goes.
