I'm beginning to think more and more than listening to the Sox FO is like listening to Bill Belechik's injury report: They both tell you what they want you to think.
Keeping in mind that since Buch is bought and paid for by the Sox, he says what he's told to say about injuries.
"I picked up the baby wrong and did something to my neck. It's nothing."
"I slept on it wrong. It'll be fine."
"It still doesn't feel right, but it's not anything to worry about. I'm only going to miss this one start."
"It just needs a little rest. I'm only going to miss a couple of starts."
...and now it's been almost two months.
I understand that as Pedey said about his thumb, the Sox don't want the opposition knowing about every injury. It's called "gamesmanship" and I'm fine with it, really I am.
I'm just learning to not believe everything that comes out of the FO mouths, and if you don't believe everything you can't believe anything. We need to understand that this is all a part of the game, sit back and enjoy the ride, and pay no attention to what the FO tells us.
Having the right to do something doesn't make it the right thing to do.
