Ben Cherington Thinks The Red Sox Can Win The Division And Actually Praised Hanley Ramirez For His "Courage" In Left Field. I Shit You Not.



From BostonGlobe.com:
His $200 million team is one of the worst in baseball. But general manager Ben Cherington said Friday that the Red Sox remain capable of winning the division.

He also offered a forceful defense of Hanley Ramirez, saying he showed “courage” in taking the team’s $88 million contract offer to play left field.

“I can still see a team that’s capable of winning the division. I’m confident we’re going to play better. In a lot of ways I feel like we’re closer to being the team we can be and a good team than we were a couple of weeks ago.”

Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha. Haha.

It's like he doesn't even watch the games.

I don't want to get too obnoxious by throwing a bunch of numbers at you,  but in order to win the division, they're going to have to win about 90 games. To get to 90 wins, the Red Sox would have to go 65-41 the rest of the way.

To think this team is going to go 20 games over .500 going forward, you have to be friggin soft in the head or in denial.

I guess to Ben Cherington, denial isn't just a river in Egypt.
