The Batman

When the Red Sox welcomed Pablo Sandoval to The Hub, they expected The Batman.

Sometimes you get the bear, sometimes the bear gets you. 

The Batman's utility belt didn't fit anymore. 

Sox fans never demanded a Ferrari.

Many of us would have been entirely content with the 1966 Batmobile in running order.

We expected a capable sidekick. 
But, alas, we got Robbin', who hoodwinked us for $19,750,000 and had minus 1.3 Wins Above Replacement (WAR). 

We wanted "kapow".

All we got was "kerplunk". 

We need The Batman. 

We need a hero not a WAR below zero.
