08:18 AM ET 04.05 | New Englanders are a famously defeatist lot, which makes this kind of spring perfect for the Red Sox. No one is picking the Red Sox to win. The Sox are careening down the dugout steps and they haven't even played a game yet. ... Did any team have a worse winter than the Red Sox? They fired the manager who won them two World Series. They let their Camelot GM go to the Cubs while he was still under contract, then received a non-prospect pitcher in return. The non-prospect wound up being damaged goods. The new GM was made to look powerless when his managerial candidate was dismissed by the owners. They let the best closer in franchise history leave without even making an offer.

They sure got taken to the woodshed on the compensation for letting Theo sign with the Cubs.
