    He bought it for a song and he uses it as local propaganda for the Red Sox. Any time the local 9 start getting shit above and beyond what they would rather deal with he can pick up the phone.

    Interesting response from a sophisticated East Coast guy.

    If John Henry wanted local political influence I could understand. As an example, perhaps he wants to buy the Encore.

    The local mayor is adamant that Wynn takes the loss. There is no way a new player would agree to all the stupid terms as Steve Wynn. No, Massachusetts scored a monumental victory and they aren’t budging. The Globe might have helped sell the idea of getting skeezy Wynn out of town and replacing with a trusted local businessman.

    Instead Daly, you argue Henry bought the Globe to influence local opinion about the Sawks. Are you unaware of the “Fellowship of the Miserable”? Criticism and cynicism are what made the Red Sox relevant and sold out Fenway every night for years. Tony Masserotti and Eddie Andelmann are examples of two Boston icons who made their bones trashing the Sawks every day.

    New England thirst for blood is insatiable. That’s what sells newspapers, homey.

    East Coast fans don’t blow kisses and would probably administer a beating to those who did.

    Just dawned on me

    Imagine Henry bought the Encore and opened a sports book there while owning the Red Sox and multiple other franchises.

    Ok, and the local paper.

    Amazing to contemplate.
