I hope the Sox really put forth a genuine effort with both, & let the chips fall where they may. Ultimately, I do hope the O's win the division outright, but it would be spoiled if the Sox lay down for them. It would leave a very bitter taste in my mouth, as that is not who we are!!! I'm not big on Karma, but as a Sox fan I get very superstitious. Call it what you will, but with out luck, I'm sure it would come back to bite us in the arss.
So.... PLAY HARD, & let both teams EARN the division. What a sad state of affairs when we are reduced to being spoilers as spoiled brats. :(
It appears to me they're trying to win.
That's mighty nice of them. Most of them are trying to stay on the roster next year, and most of them don't care who does win- they're from all over the world and don't have emotions like fans do. besides, you lay down your career is over.
Mighty nice of them? Do you honestly believe Girardi and the NYY were trying to win the last game of last season, against the Rays. I remember distinctivly, the smile on Girardi's face when Longoria hit the HR to take the lead. Do I think he was trying to lose, no but wasnt going all out to win either. cuts both ways.
I agree, but I don't like it either way. I like the idea of being a spoiler, but only if the effort is put out both ways. I love the idea of being a spoiler by beating someone, not laying down, AS THE YANKEES DID! We all know they did, & they definitely deserve to have it go the other way. I still say, battle hard with both, & make both earn it! I hope we're not like the Yankees!
