Why do we have to listen to this asshole? Why did the team invite him?
The team can't wait to retire his uniform. They know they have to force him on the fanbase to try to rehab his image for a while before they can do that. It sucks.
If they do retire his number, fans who hate him should get together to give him some gifts during the ceremony: a shower cap; a hypodermic needle; some really light luggage so he won't complain about having to carry it; an atlas of the North America to show him that Toronto is nowhere near his "home" of Texas; a recording of Suzyn Waldman screaming her head off about him coming back to the Yankees, etc.

Why would they retire his number?

If Downs puts in some hard work during the offseason, maybe he can become the next Jonathan Araúz

Tell me again why they called up this journeyman Refsnyder instead of Fitzy?

For those not int he know, ever since the pandemic, and the Red Sox put him straight into AAA after that lost 2020 season, despite little AA experience, Downs has been horrific offensively.

Is it because the Sox mismanaged him? Gap year in pandemic really hurt him? Or is he just simply a bust? Mix of any of those? UP to the Red Sox to answer.
