This is pretty much how I feel about it. Unlike the teams that Manual and Ozzie managed, this team just flat out sucks.

But, mostly, I really can't get worked up about Robin's performance because this is pretty much what I expected when the Sox hired a guy with zero professional managing or coaching experience.
