David, if this goes viral and you’re somehow reading this; you need to MAN UP . You came here for the money, and that’s okay! I don’t care if you came here for the money as long as you’re here! That being said, you had to know what you were getting yourself into. Boston sports fans are among the most passionate in the world. If you’re doing well, they will shower you with praise. You’ll be a God among men. However, if you’re doing poorly, they’re going to let you hear it. I was ecstatic to see that you signed. I was ready for the Red Sox to have a true ace that would lead this team back to the playoffs. They got that, but it wasn’t you.
Rick Porcello led the team to a division title while taking home the American League Cy Young award. Meanwhile, you consistently underperformed and only showed mere flashes of the guy that we thought we were getting. You kept acknowledging the fact that you needed to get better, but it never happened. Then once we got to the playoffs, we went down 0-1. You were given the opportunity to redeem yourself in the must-win game that you were brought here to pitch, and you dropped the ball. So instead of going on Twitter and bitching about the fans who are pissed at you, do what Rick Porcello did last year. Use the offseason productively and get back to the basics. You have until Opening Day to get your shit together. So get off Twitter, get in the video room, figure out what went wrong, and fix it. Unlike most Red Sox fans, I haven’t lost faith in you yet. But if these tweets continue, I might change my mind. Do us both a favor and log off, David.
