Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe was in studio Friday to share his final thoughts on the 2013 Red Sox season, one that will culminate tomorrow morning with a rolling rally duckboat parade through the city.
Shaughnessy wrote an article back in February while down in Fort Myers for Spring Training predicting the Red Sox would not only struggle to win games in 2013, but struggle to draw fan interest as well. He called them a boring bunch, and forecasted a last place finish.
Well now that the Sox have won it all, angry e-mailers are reaching out Shaughnessy referencing his February article and calling him out for it. The Sox insider defended himself this morning on Gresh & Zo.
“You know what? I don’t care. We are wrong all the time, I’ll be wrong a million more times. I. Was. Wrong. I couldn’t be more wrong. It’s easy to say I was wrong. I guess I’m the only one who didn’t think they’d win a World Series after 69 wins and that trainwreck [2012 season],” said Shaughnessy.
