The Sox and the Hopeless.

It's a made for TV drama, this 2012 Red Sox season. This isn't baseball, it's a soap opera filled with breakups, birthdays, and everything in-between.

It won't be long until NESN airs out the dirty laundry during it's midday programming (Hey, wait a minute . . . "Sox in 2" . . .)

Here's the trailer for what has become a drama-filled summer on the diamond.

The Red Sox have more or less withdrawn from the Edwin Encarnacion sweepstakes, with Evan Drellich of the Boston Herald noting that much of their reluctance hinges on the likelihood that they’d exceed the new $195 million luxury tax threshold by locking the DH into a lucrative deal.
