    They've totally exceeded my expectations. which is good because this was the first year in awhile that nobody was picking them to go all the way. Unless they have a collapse of epoch proportions the Red Sox should have home field through out the playoffs and possibly the WS.

    "Epoch proportions!" I like it. I think you were trying to say "epic proportions," but the new turn-of-phrase gives an added depth of meaning.

     

    Cool

    Don't forget the new manager, a new coaching staff that actually communicate with the manager and a GM allowed to be a GM.

    The players have been great to watch; great clubhouse that carries over to the field and dugout.

    Winning helps!

    Like the dynasty-era Patriots who thrived on getting no credit and being underestimated, the Sox seem to thrive on flying under the radar. They let their play on the field do the talking. When the Sox were proclaimed 'the greatest team ever' a couple of years ago, they pulled off one of the biggest collapses ever. When they were written off at the start of this season, they went on a season-long tear and proved all the psychics to be fools.
