Who's to Blame?
Charlie Davies's lawsuit against Red Bull and Das Enterprises (SCORECARD, Oct. 31) claims the defendants are at fault because they served alcohol to Maria Espinoza even though she was visibly intoxicated. However, Davies readily admits that even he was not aware of how drunk Ms. Espinoza was when he got into the car with her at the wheel. While I feel for Davies and the other victims, this is an obvious contradiction. How can Davies expect the defendants to recognize how intoxicated Ms. Espinoza was when he himself wasn't able to?
Todd Marshall, Henderson, Nev.
Thank you for your open letter to Red Sox fans (SCORECARD, Oct. 31). Red Sox Nation needed to be reminded that there is no crying in baseball; you either put up or shut up. The Cubs have not won the World Series in more than 100 years, so kudos to them for going after Theo Epstein to try to turn things around. The Nation needs to just stop whining, stop bashing Epstein and Terry Francona, and stop trying to blame everyone for the collapse.
Chris Bernholdt, Devon, Pa.
The Rest of You need to keep in mind that we in Red Sox Nation are freaks. We know it and we bask in it. We love Fenway more than we love mom and apple pie. We can't stand it when our players aren't into winning as much as we are. We won't sit back quietly when our G.M. takes a hike because he can no longer handle the pressure. We will holler about the debacle of 2011 until we take our last breath.
