Red Sox fans bouncing off the walls.
Aleady proclaiming victory.
DO YOU EVER LEARN?
Red Sox fans wanting to add Foulke , and Colon and more offense... suddenly its ok to BUY a team.
Red Sox fans believing their bullpen will do what it did in the postseason rather than the regular season, that their offense will be as ridiculously good, that pedro and schilling will stay healthy...
until September or October until they start waiting for the inevitable collapse.
Next year's AL East standings:
3> Blue Jays
4> Devil Rays
5> Red Sox
why? not sure exactly. maybe theyll be riddled by injuries, maybe theyll trade away too many bad personalities for not enough bat, maybe the new manager is a turkey, all i know is that the more red sox fans get their hopes up...
the bigger the disaster.
one of the things that makes baseball fun really.

nsulham wrote:Look, no Sox fan here I know has "proclaimed victory". Are they a much improved team? Yes. Has the balance of power in the AL East (if you choose to believe such cliches) shifted? Yes, especially if they do end up signing Foulke.
nsulham wrote:You know for a fact George is going to come out guns ablazing and sign every FA under the sun. So why the negativity? It's all about making your team better right? Which is what Boston has done and what George will do.
nsulham wrote:For once we actually have made the bigger splash in the offseason, a very rare feat considering George's FA history so as Sox fans we have every right to be ecstatic.
nsulham wrote:NOTHING is decided yet, it's only November. But for you to predict that the Sox will finish dead last in the division is absolute jealousy and stupidity at it's worst.
Balance of power doesnt shift in the off-season. EVER. The Yankees and Braves are favorites to win their divisions until they don't. Period.
Why the negativity? I thought my post explained that. I think the portion of Sox fans that just like to whinel have become (even) more hypocritical, which is bad. They're also getting their hopes up already just to have them crushed again. I actually LIKE that though. Its funny. And at least Boston fans support their team unlike Oakland and some "cities". Believe it or not most Yankee fans RESPECT the real Boston fans for continuing to support their team, knowing full well they will never win. How can you not?
We KNOW we can sign free agents, and we KNOW our next championship will come at some point. (usually next year)
Its not that big a deal to us.
