I’ve been a Red Sox fan my whole life. Even when we moved and there was no internet, I still followed them day in and day out.

They are the great sports passion of my life.

But when the Red Sox brought back domestic abuser Steven Wright to the team, it put a knot in my stomach.

Baseball punished Robinson Cano for 1/2 a season for PEDs and Steven Wright 15 days for domestic violence.
