    Re: Calling All Sugar Coaters....

    Still can't believe they held him over the offseason, when he actually had some trade value. He was a huge, glaring problem for the Sox then, but coming off, overall, a good season (as many supporters pointed out time, and time again). But no, bring back all the same clubhouse problems, slap on a new coat of paint, and keep that sellout going!

    What a totally unlikeable team. Where's anyone that argued me on that opening day?

    This has been coming for a few years, I warned against it over and over, and was called all manne rof names...well. I was gd right, this ownership s u c k s, and these players are far too entitled.

    I'm right here with you in good times and bad times. The irony of this thread is the loser who started it always hides when the Sox are doing well but comes out like a cockroach when things are dark for the Sox.

    I'll continue to root for them. I went to my first game in 1969 and rooted just as hard during the highs and lows, unlike the so many fair-weathered fans on this board who rip the "pinkhats" in one post then say how we all should stop supporting this team in another.

    No sugar coating here. This team is a disgrace. But if you listen to kimsaythis, regardless of how they play, we have to think positive and root for our team. HA.

    Re: Calling All Sugar Coaters....

    Eh, I was just expecting someone to throw some stats around trying to demonstrate that the Beckett contract represents a good value and perhaps something to the effect that "compared to other team's 'aces' or '#2's" he's just as good or better".........I was really looking forward to that.....guess I'll have to watch the train wreck that is on NESN now....

    don't you love it when some Sox fans think they are "better" fans because they simply lack a grasp of reality?

    Why do you laugh at that? If you don't want to root for them then don't. You shouldn't be on this forum then. Try a Rays forum they're doing good ;)

    On one hand, I respect your commitment.

    On the other hand, players, especially ones getting paid to the level they are nowadays, should EARN that type of commitment. In my opinion, this group is p i s s i n g on your good will.

    Some people will ALWAYS support a family memebr...regardless of them stealing from you, vandalizing your property, committing crimes, or anything else, "well, family is family". No, at some point, people are judged by what they do, not what they represent. This team is doing NOTHING, regardless of the 100+ year franchise they represent, and deserve none of the adulation you two are giving them. You're helping to encourage it.

    I missed the original post because that "real fan" is on iggy but I can see he's still tossing around insults as fat and high as Beckett's change up.....

    I can still root for the team and most individuals even if they're struggling and if some players have issues. Take Beckett out of the mix, there's still plenty of players worth rooting for. Take the bullpen, for example. It was horrible the week or two. It's been great since that 15-9 debacle. They buckled down and got the job done. I'm not supposed to root for them.

    Ortiz came into camp in great shape and has been playing hard as did Pedroia. Newcomers like Ross, Sweeney, Aviles (from last year) have all played hard. They haven't always come through. Take the plays Ross and Byrd messed up yestersday. Was it because they didn't try or play hard. No. Both players have busted their btt since coming here. They simply couldn't make the play.

    Here's where I differ from a lot of other fans. When a team or player is struggling, so many of you like to attach dark reasons for it -- the player is lazy, doesn't care, is out of shape, etc.

    There are times when that is the case, and maybe that's true for Beckett.

    But most of the time, the reason for the struggles is simple -- maybe a slump is just a slump or maybe they're simply not good no matter how hard they try.

    I agree completely with you and have said this yeam was bad back in April. I was an officer in the Army in Iraq and I do not sugar coat anything especially with this 2012 team. In response to "Re: Calling All Sugar Coaters....":

    Oh yeah, I mean, you could see it in the winter.  They couldn't make any changes because no one worth dumping is tradeable and their budget was already spent.  It's like the same team horrible team from last year less Papelbon.......

    What's disengenous?

    All that I said is that I feel most of the players are trying and playing hard so I'm still going to root for them. I'm not going to turn on the entire team just because of one or two bad seeds.

    Let's assume that everything you say about Beckett is 100 percent correct. Why should I let one player make me turn against everyone else, which some posters seem to want.

    I just ripped Buchholz and Lester on the game thread for not manning up and controlling their own fate, so why should I let Beckett control what I do.

    Well personally I gave Beckett the benefit of the doubt right up until this latest episode.  Now I wish we could trade him tomorrow because I'm finally buying into the idea that he is hurting the team.
