Interesting column from Gordon Edes.Should the Sox have let Britton have the honor of startibng opening day despite the DUI charges against him?
Here's a paragraph and a link to read the rest of the article:
NEW YORK -- Pitching on Opening Day, whether it is Little League or the big leagues, is treated as a big deal. That’s why it is a mistake that the Red Sox allowed Drake Britton, who has drunk driving charges pending against him, to pitch Thursday night’s home opener for the Double A Portland Sea Dogs.
What were the Red Sox thinking?
