Is it cuz he's hurt? No.
Is it cuz Sale's better? No.
Is it cuz he can't beat the Yankees? A little bit.
Is it cuz he bitched out Boston sports writers? Bingo.
Boston sports writers will allow their athletes to get away with anything and apologize for them the entire way. Patriots are blatant cheaters? No problem. Ortiz an obvious steroid user? Lol, what steroids! Celtics build a super team while other teams get bitched about when they do it? That's just smart free agent signing. But all that goes away when you complain about the 3rd grade writing level writers that hail from Boston.
