By Jonathan Usher – @madduxman As Spring Training 2018 begins, nearly every outlet of the media tells us that our Red Sox are unlikable. Is Andrew Benintendi unlikable? How about Rafael Devers? Maybe you can’t stand Mookie Betts, Chris Sale, JBJ, Vazquez, Kimbrel or Carson Smith. Does Swihart, E-Rod, Pomeranz, Sandy Leon, or the Brock Star piss you off? Nope, me either.
