There Are Too Many Red Sox Fans Who Want To Miserable

By now we all know what happened with Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price last night at Yankee Stadium. To sum it up, he lost his mind and freaked out on a few media members, mainly Evan Drellich of Comcast Sports Network New England. By all accounts, it sounds like it was over the top and unprofessional and it’s infuriating. David Price set himself back again just as people were starting to come around on him and he was having some success.

But today in the wake of the news, I am disgusted by the Red Sox “fans” that are out there that blindly hate Price. Yes he did something wrong and I don’t really want to defend him, but when I heard people saying they were hoping he’d get lit up by the Yankees tonight I feel like I’m taking crazy pills. What is wrong with you? How does that help anything? If you are actively rooting against a player on your own team then I assume you just like being a miserable person. It’s stupid.

I’m sitting here watching the game now, and Price isn’t doing very well. He’s let up six runs and his pitch count is crazy high at 94 in the fifth. But I’m still sitting here rooting for him because I want the Red Sox to win. It doesn’t mean I love David Price, it just means I know that the Sox are a better team with him than without him. Some fans are so stupid that they actually think we should just cut ties with him right now.

Does anyone understand that without him, we aren’t winning a title this year? Heck, the Sox may not even make it to October if he isn’t part of the plan. But some Sox fans just get an idea in their heads about one player and they never let it go. The narrative is that Price stinks and that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Stop being such a fool and just watch the guy work.

If he performs, then I don’t see a problem. You don’t have to love him, but getting all bent out of shape because he yelled at some media is ridiculous. Wanting him to fail means you want the Red Sox to fail. Don’t be that idiot.
