Welcome to Boston, player to be named. Here's your life preserver

It feels like it happened in the blink of an eye, but I suppose it took the entire month of August for the Red Sox to collapse, implode, crash, and finally settle at the bottom of the ocean.

They opened the month at 63-41 in first place, and finish it 9 wins and 21 losses later, out of the race in the division and in danger of finishing third behind the Blue Jays.

I was going to try and write something positive, but there's no point now that Theo and the crew have raised the white flag. David Wells is now a Padre (traded to a contender for a prospect to be named), depleting the already emptied Sox pitching staff to its core. Middling reliever Julian Tavarez started last night.

Are you ready for some football?

Considering that my hometown team is the Atlanta Braves, I have the utmost empathy for your situation.
