Had the Sox done this under Manuel or Ozzie, I'd be mad as heck. But just because those teams were filled with young, promising talent. This team is filled with old, worn out stars or young players that aren't any good.

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.
