In response to notin's comment:
If only they really knew how positive you are...
Oh the sox don't wrooy about realists. They have plenty of toadies like you to buy gear and cheerlead.
You are wearing a Gomes shirt right now. We all know that.
If I had a Gomes short, I woukld wear it proudly and hope Gomes had a great season. Do I expect him to? Of xcourse not. I hope he succeeds in a limited role, and that is probably about it.
You on the other hand will repeatedly cheer against Gomes and come out here and make incessant posts about how right you were, and how they never should have brought him on. And should Gomes ever have a good day, you will most defintely not be coming on thse boards, happy that Gomes made a game mre enjoyable to watch. We all saw this with Bailey last season. Did you ever once acknowledge Bailey was fresh from an injury that could have lead to his subpar season, or was Ellsbury the only player on the roster you afforded that excuse?
I do not understand you "the team needs to follow MY plan because it is the only course of action that makes sense" types. This is a level of ego I cannot identify with. Dumber still is yuo are already venturing into blaming those who disagree with you for this offseason. Reality check - the Sox FO probably has no idea this message bosrd exists, and will never take anything any of us say seriously even if they did. Some of us are fans of the Red Sox, and not completely and totally afns of ourselves.
and sometime, drop the "with me or against me" mentality. I have sad very little about any move yet, although I have offered potential explanations. To you, this seem to constitute not only acceptance, but blind willingness to follow. You know you have entered this follish level of behavior if you have ever used to word "apologist," because anyone who uses that word is one of those who think their opinion is the only true one. That word is only brandished by the stupidly egomanical. ..
