World Champ BoSox Still Need Self-Esteem Boost

The Boston Red Sox are back, and just as dominant as they were last year. But don’t just take my word for it. Trust Boston College.

Red Sox Dice K laugh

The teams — pro vs. college — played a seven-inning “game” yesterday. It was a fair contest much in the way a prancing deer against a high-powered rifle with a telescopic lens is a fair contest.

The Red Sox had eight runs in the second inning. And they were just getting started. Final score: 24-0. The highlights? The Red Sox had 24 runs on 16 hits and — this is killing me — 15 walks; Boston College had 1 hit. Yeah, I understand pro teams play college teams early in spring training. But usually they take some steps to even things up. The best part is that MLB.com used a “storyform” format that ensured it had to find highlights for both teams. Boston College at the plate? That’s a tough one.

But let it be known that Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz “sparked” the Red Sox with RBI doubles. Because otherwise they had no chance.
