Don't get me wrong Craze4sox, Dice-K fell out of favor with me also! My posts here were not in defense of Dice-K, rather they were calling out SoldRed on his race baiting over the Dice-K situation.
As he is want to do, SoldRed was demagoguing the issue, using race as his foil to paint RSN as a bunch of Neanderthal racists & bigots.
SoldRed, GM, Softlaw, ? whatever his latest incarnation may be, exists for ONE PURPOSE & One purpose only! He seeks to TRY TO make RSN look bad, while inflating his own delusional self image as a "righteous" defender of truth, justice, & the American Way. :) Perhaps his next avatar will actually be Superman??? LOL He pretends to be a RS fan, but spends most of his time ripping RS players, fans, management, & the front office.
Dice-K's problems here in Boston were completely self inflicted!
Oki's problems unfortunately coincided with Dice-K's inauspicious & frankly dishonest exit from the scene. He, like Dice-K enjoyed a great deal of love here in Boston, but became a victim of "losing his novelty / unique stuff." Once guys in the league figured him out, they started POUNDING him. I always liked the guy, but his usefulness had been fully exhausted. Unfortunately, it seems that Oki is now conflating the Dice-K issue, conveniently reading himself into what is going on with his fellow Japanese teammate. The insinuation of race / racism into this situation is most unfortunate! To me, the last refuge of a scoundral, is the cries of "racism" and the accompanying demagoguery therein. We see enough of this in our modern politics, we don't need to see this vile tactic employed against our beloved Red Sox or the fans!
