    Wow, a team picked fifth in a five-team division has cracks? Who knew?

    My CONCERN at this juncture is enjoying the good baseball I am watching and not getting caught up in nitpicking and casting clouds over everything.  What a drag.  If I realized half way through a season that I had wasted the previous months stewing in criticism and fretting over possible concerns, I would be so upset with myself for having, unprovoked, turned a past time I love into a constant study in fear and loathing.  Why squeeze the joy out of one of the purely joyful things in life?  

    Baseball has a way of bringing about misery without having to stew in it:  case in point, 2012 Red Sox.  No need to force it.

    Not to say there are no stress points with this club.  of course there are.  Unlike you, however, I do not want to spend all day harping on them.  

    What a miserable waste of time.  I will leave that 'fun' to yourself and Softy, ADG et al.

    the home record has me worried.  last year it was abysmal.  it needs to be better this year and losing 2 out of 3 to the Royals doesnt bode well.  yes, it is early.  but it can get late early.

    The royals arent the team they used to be. They will give teams fits this year. We just won 7 in a row and lost 2. No biggie. every team has flaws. Werent the Blue Jays supposed to be in 1st place? You, softy, Lssiter, geo and all the other whine bag trolls can wast your time worrying all day.

    With all of those cracks it is amazing that we aren't 7-12. 

    Serious you just need to relax. The only concern I have of all those listed is SS.

    The team had a 48 yr low last season and came out of the gate, even with the double-dip loss, at 12-6. There should be few complaints. The SP has been unexpectedly spectacular, setting a record for consecutive games surrendering 3 runs or less, with Fenway as a home park to boot. Fickle stuff.

    Congratulations my good friend Bill-806 on this excellent thread. Your shrewd analysis of your Red Sox is spot on. Your GM has sold Red Sox fans a bridge to nowhere. By signing has-been free agents whose best years are just a memory, he has placed the Sox future in jeopardy. The Sox offense, with half the lineup with anemic batting averages, is just a shadow of the potent offenses displayed in the 1st decade of the 21st century. And moreover, he has saddled the team with a rotation that can not propel this team to the playoffs. GM Ben’s big signing in the off season was a mid-30s NL bottom of the rotation finesse pitcher who failed in his short time in Texas. Furthermore, Dubront can’t get past the 5th inning because of control issues and Lackey is a total mystery. Ben has put together a team unworthy of the loyal die-hard Red Sox loyalists.
