That seems rather obvious, but I guess it’s something you have to say when a major national media figure makes lazy assumptions about why you didn’t sign any big time free agents this winter. From the Boston Herald:
In response to a CBSSports.com blog post Thursday, a Fenway Sports Group source strongly disputed the notion that the Red Sox’ unusual financial restraint this winter is related to overspending for players on owner John Henry’s English Premier League soccer team.
“Roush Fenway (Racing), NESN, the Red Sox and Liverpool are all profitable businesses that do not have to rely on revenues moving from one to another … Baseball and soccer are completely different.”
We should probably lay off Heyman here, though. They haven’t explained why his CBS research staff’s budget has been slashed. But here’s one guess: revenues are down ever since they cancelled “All in the Family” in 1979.
