The Red Sox don’t need our contempt. They need our commiseration.

It can’t be any more fun to play these games than it is to watch them. If there were any mercy — actual mercy, not the homespun Ned Martin kind — then the Sox would be able to fast forward through the remainder of their schedule the same way you speed past the commercials on a show you have DVR’d.
