Here’s what the Red Sox slugger had to say recently about the sour streak his team has been on lately, endangering its playoff hopes:

“There’s nobody to blame but everybody.”

If I were a CEO, or the president of something, or someone with even the slightest responsibility for anything, I would tuck this quote in my back pocket and whip it out when things get grim.

Mike K.

Well, he's almost as well-loved as Yogi, but he'll need about two dozen more of these to be in Yogi's league as a wordsmith. And though it's a good line, it doesn't have that paradoxical quality that Yogi's best ones do.


Let's see...he'll also need another 11 World Series rings, 11 more all-star appearances, 3 AL MVPs... Maybe not.
