Man I have not posted over here in ALL OF THE AGES. That is remarkable. I think that I feel guilty because all of my drawing goes to Roar of the Tigers and then I am like, "Oh kittens I just do not want to draw another comic for another baseball team and also there are so many Red Sox blogs and nobody cares."
Maybe I should draw some bad Red Sox comics though? I did some sketch cards and I guess I did not post them over here, but here they are.
It is kind of amazing to me that the Red Sox do not even have a real catcher yet. I guess the FO is assuming they will get Varitek one way or another, in spite of the cruel and unusual shenanigans of The Boras, but I look at the roster right now and I snicker so damn hard. We are talking Josh Bard and a bunch of folks who were born in the 80s but are not actual prospects. And it is ALMOST FEBRUARY. At what point do we just sit back and say, Wait... wait, shit.
AWESOME BASEBALL ANALYSIS
Then it is also kind of hard to post about the Red Sox when I have just written a bunch of Tigers stuff, because all the Red Sox problems seem so tiny in comparison. So, say, the Red Sox have some bullpen concerns, fact, but then I come up against the fact that THE TIGERS HAVE NO BULLPEN LIKE AT ALL. We are talking about people being KIND OF EXCITED about the idea that Brandon Lyon might be the Detroit closer by the end of Spring Training. BRANDON LYON. I know the Red Sox have issues in middle relief but at least they don't have such issues that Brandon Lyon is the best candidate for closer in their entire bullpen.
THANK YOU FOR EXISTING JONATHAN PAPELBON
And then of course there were the Lions and the Wolverines, neither of whom really inspired me to keyboard mash any more than I was already doing. There are only so many ways you can say, "Gosh we are so bad in every way," after all.
