The Fortune .500's

Tony Mazz Turns the Perfect Phrase

"Let's be honest: These Sox are a Fortune .500 company. They make a fortune and play .500. On most occasions this season, the Sox have treated baseball as a nuisance and demonstrated little or no enthusiasm. They have played poor defense. They run the bases neither well nor aggressively. They fail to advance runners or execute the simplest fundamentals, and they generally have lacked respect for the game or the effort it requires.

And then, when asked to explain how it all could be so wrong, they scratch their heads, shrug confusedly and offer a look of bewilderment.

Buckley adds: "These Yankees always seem to be taking the extra base, wheras the Red Sox seem more concerned with taking the extra day off."
