unbelievable bombshell of an article in the Globe today.....


ownership feared Francona had a pain pill addiction......thought he was distracted this season due to the failing of his marriage (he lived in a hotel all season after moving out of his home)

the story shreds Beckett, Lester, and Lackey for being douchebags.....calls out Youkilis, Gonzalez, Varitek (who declared with his reduced role on the team that he didn't care to be a leader anymore), and Ortiz for various reasons....

nobody walks away looking good here but Pedroia, really......

What is the matter with Gonzalez? Didn't hit well enough? Only .340!

I guess he was constantly bellyaching about the schedule....having to play night games on getaway days wore him down physically, he said


the story directly implies that the team almost went in to the tank on purpose in September as a way to show their displeasure with ownership for making them play a day night double header directly after a road trip (to avoid dealing with Hurricane Irene)...the players put up a huge protest to having to play two games that day, and stayed bitter about it to the end of the season.....

after that day, they never did win 2 games in a row again.....
If that's the case, they need to do a full housecleaning.     Everybody.    If you weren't tanking it but knew others who were, you're in the same boat.

I think that article came directly from ownership to get people on their side for the moves that have been/will be made.
