Agreed. A lot easier to get upset here about giving up on the (very drawn out) idea of Blake as a player then it is the player himself. That he's probably going for absolutely nothing at this point is also not worth being upset at either imo, as that essentially was price you paid to get a longer look instead of dealing him off a year ago.The Sox may have jerked him around and mismanaged him, but if they weren't going to get anything out of him, then let him go. He has been nothing but a legitimately awful baseball player
Call it whatever you want, but I'm in the minority camp that is pretty ok with the call to get Sandy back behind the plate at this point. Not the biggest Sandy fan in the world when I see him stepping up to plate either...but yeah. I'll take the throw crap at the wall odds at Sandy helping to turn our pitching staff around over Blake Swihart ever amounting to noteworthy MLB piece I'll find myself mourning the cut bait loss over.
