Seriously. Are you really a teacher? Geez, I feel bad for your students who are turning in reports to a teacher who can't understand what they write. What does this (in bold) have to do with my post.
I was a bit surprised at the Cameron signing and never was a big fan of moving Ellbury to LF. Where did I ever support that move. You want to show me? Where did I ever say it was a great signing? But with the move done, I was always going to root for the guy.
For example, I posted when Lackey signed that I didn't like the contract. I posted when Crawford signed I thought he was overpaid. I posted back in 2009 when there were many posters drooling over Crawford that I thought he was overhyped. But none of that means I'm not going to root for them now that they play for the Red Sox because foremost, unlike many poster, I'm a Red Sox fans. Even if I don't like the player, I'm going to root for the player to do well so the Red Sox will do well.
And my above post, which apparently went way over your head, was that he should have been they type of player fans should root for, even if his signing was a dumb move. Where did I ever blame the fans for his downfall?
Why should it be such a foreign concept that whether or not I like a signing or trade, it's still separate from rooting for the player because he plays for the Red Sox?
Is your ego so fragile that once you make up your mind that you don't like a signing or trade that you have to root against the player just so you can brag about how "right" you were? How petty. How sad.
