ST. LOUIS – It’s as if the Red Sox are sitting in their corner after the third round of a championship fight. Angelo Dundee, the best trainer in the history of boxing, looks squarely into the eyes of a dazed John Farrell and says, “you’re blowing it!”
The Red Sox are blowing this World Series. They are screwing up, playing with mid-June urgency against the Astros instead of with precision and humility. Their arrogance is killing them — with the best examples being Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Craig Breslow each trying to nab a runner at third base in the midst of chaos and failing miserably.
