Good to See the Boston Media Being Fair and Balanced

The $180 Million Man Is Batting His Weight at .222
Just 10 Hits on the Season for Mr. Leigh
So How LOUD Is Fenway Gonna Be?-----------------------
Look, we get it. He didn't want to play for your team, so your ownership and media threw him under the bus (which they usually wait to do until they want to get RID of a player (Nomar, Manny, etc) but I digress...).
Personally I'd rather have a Gold Glove, 29 year old first baseman who is starting the season at these stats, and is a notoriously slow starter throughout his career:
AB 45 HR 3 AVG .222 RBI 9 R 6
than a 33 year old who is seemingly 400 lbs, can't play defense at all, also has a huge contract, and a much less hot wife whose performance has been in decline since the team got rid of his insurance policy hitting behind him:
AB 59 HR 0 AVG .220 RBI 8 R 6
Of course the Boston press once again shows their class by going after the opposition and not their own.
