Video: Why can't we just be disappointed?
On Tuesday's Outside the Lines, ESPNBoston.com's Gordon Edes debates the Boston Globe's Dan Shaughnessy on Jon Lester's comments on the Red Sox collapse. As part of the conversation Edes asks the following:
"Why can't this town just be disappointed in a team? Why do they have to find that team loathsome? That's a question I think deserves consideration."
Watch the video above for Shaughnessy's answer.
