If you follow baseball, you’ll know that the Red Sox have been a huge disappointment the past two seasons. Last year the boys from Beantown suffered a September meltdown, but this year they’ve opted to be terrible from the get-go. If they don’t end up in the cellar, it’s only because the Blue Jays, otherwise known as the punching bag of the American League East, lost the man known as Joey Bats to injury and now surgery. It’s too late for redemption unless you are the kind of fan who claims a sportsbook promo and then bets against your own team out of spite.
Did you ever wonder why people still call Boston bean town? I don’t think people really eat those heavily sugared baked beans any more, especially in New England. They aren’t bad though. Maybe baked beans will become a euphemism for sportsbook promo. That will teach them. Or maybe they’ll just say they were homeschooled, but not in the way that makes you have no social skills.
The thing that’s really odd about the demise of Boston is that they didn’t see it coming. You have to really wonder if they need some kind of corrective lenses. With a new puppet master in the dugout, hope really sprung eternal last spring. The truth is managers are often overrated. Unless the guy in the dugout is truly incompetent, the number of games he can actually put into the win column are negligible. It’s the difference between great and slightly greater rather than amazing and horrible. Whether or not Baltimore has any staying power is almost inconsequential. You just know Massachusetts is about to fall off the baseball map for more than just this season alone. It looks like they need a clue but maybe they’ll settle for a sportsbook promo code.
