Nice job by the Greenwich Sports Guy in answering this question. Short, rational response buried by a useless talk about his EPL fandom. I just hope he goes more in-depth if Theo and crew sit idle this winter.
Q: Can you explain how John Henry can afford to pay $476 million for a soccer team but couldn't afford Mark Teixeira?"

SG: I can't. By the way, what should I do here? My baseball team (the Red Sox) just bought an English Premier League team (Liverpool), only I already picked an EPL team (Tottenham Hotspur). Do I have to switch? I've only been seriously following Tottenham for 15 months. I've never been to a game at White Hart Lane. I've never worn a jersey. It's not like I have any real ties to them -- it's just a team I randomly picked to follow. If the Red Sox play up the Liverpool connection, play exhibition games in Fenway, make special jerseys and hats that tie both teams together ... I mean, it's going to be tough for me to root for a different team than what will basically be The Red Sox If They Played Soccer In England And Had Even Crazier Fans.
I'm havin a good time, Jacques Martin's tryin to ruin it.
