    Hi folks, I could never jump ship,. However, I am looking at the life jacket so I can stay afloat until we right the ship.

    I WOULD NEVER jump ship. I will watch the Sox play if the score is 15-1 in the 9th inning. And I mean that either way the score is..................I Love The Red Sox, they need us now..........................!!!!!!

    Stand up and be counted! (SawxBlog Illustration)   I'm staying with the ship. I'll be with the band and the captain. I'm not leaving! But if you do decide to jump off, don't bother coming to the World Championship parade.

    Keepin' the faith! It's tough, but keepin' the faith! Alot depends upon Beckett, but keepin' the faith!

    What Ship? 

    This team still has the 3rd best record in baseball and they have a 7 game lead in the wild card.  My concerns are not about them getting to the playoffs, it's about what happens when they do, if Beckett is really hurt.  I have liked Bedard, but he is just another arm.  I think it's time to start Aceves and let him have a shot at the second or third slot in the rotation.

    I still think Lackey is not going to surprise anyone, but he has been lucky getting lots of run support.  Decent pitching and great hitting can win games in the playoffs, but not all the time.

    I think Miller is an enigma.  He has talent, but no clue on how to be consistent.  This could be telling.  I don't want Weiland or Wake to be starters in the playoffs, so Beckett is pretty crucial to how far we advance. 

    But, "Jump Ship"!  You would have to be an idiot to even consider it!

    Just my thoughts.

     LOL... I guess many posters haven't really been watching over the years but this is what being a Sox Fan is all about !! Great Expectations at the start, so so beginning followed by a string of good fortune and a Rise to the top, Mix in a Ho Hum Augest and September Then Follow all that up by getting into the playoffs and hope for that lightning in a bottle to carry you over. Been a Fan since 67 and will die a Red Sox fan. Welcome to the Pain many of us have experienced for quite a while now !!

    hey al,

    this year's different. this year an inept GM blew 142 million dollars on a player the SOX didn't need, instead of fixing the HOLES that already existed.
    the failure of this season falls squarely on THEO'S arrogant shoulders.

    let's not even bring up SLACKEY and FAT-BUTT JENKS.

    I never jump ship. Nor do I get giddy over the day or minute. Team is still a contender, but construction and current roster management mistakes are quite embarrassing. Team and payroll will have to win in spite of management.

    If this team bombs in playoffs or gets whipped in WS, my hope is that Theo closes the bridge door and goes down with the RMS Epstein. Don't hire another engineer to use a fortune to build a ship with a hull that bursts because of design and construction flaws and Tim Wastefield and Mike Aviles as water wings life jackets. Theo should go down with the 3rd class passengers he charged a fortune to berth in a rat infested cargo space. And I better not see Tito put a whig on and try and get in one of 3 lifeboats that Theo said would never need to be used.

    I have been a supporter of the Boston Red Sox every season since I can remember. That would be about 1960. If I never gave up on them in all that time, why the Hell would I turn my back on them now?

    Next dumb question, please?

    No one will actually admit that they're jumping ship in such a direct and obvious way as far as posting about it on this thread.  To do so would force them to confront an aspect of their personality that they, no doubt, aren't prepared to do.  They will, however, reveal themselves to be "Saux" fans in more indirect ways.  Be ever vigilant of these interlopers and be prepared to mock them accordingly.

    that's cool yoshimi; not giving up on them.
    here's what's really sad; the fans, like you and me, care more about how well the sox do than the sox players. they get paid no matter what.
    i see a lot of smiling down on the field during the games when the SOX are losing. what are they smiling about?

    Gee, I don't know ... in the history of professional sports, no team has ever come back from 2 1/2 games back with 22 games remaining.

    How can any real Sox fan jump ship anyway? There is no other ship any of us would ever chose to serve on but the USREDSOX. It's just hard not to notice that the Yorktown looked better after the battle of Midway then the USREDSOX does right now. But as long as we are still afloat, and get some of our guns working again there is always a chance we won't meet the same fate.

    When you say "jump ship" do you mean we stop being Red Sox fans and switch to Seattle or something, or are we saying some might now think the team probably won't win the WS? Is that abandoning ship? Well, odds are against them winning the WS at this point, (it would be foolish to maintain they're the favorite) but that doesn't mean I'll stop watching the games. However, if Beckett has a serious injury, women and children first--but I guess we'll all sit in the boats and watch the ship go down.

    No reason at all to abandon ship or hope.  Too much talent.  Hopefully this is just another of the small dips in a very long season.

    It is time for the ship captain and his crew to maybe do some light reading.  May I suggest:

    - The Sacrifice Bunt; When and How to Use It (pay attention to chapter 13, scoreless game, 7th inning, man on 1st, no outs and a .250 hitter at the plate)

    - Staying Healthy for the Long Haul

    - Hitting in the Clutch; YES, YOU(k) CAN DO IT

    - Hitting for Power Outside the State of Texas

    - Big Inning Avoidance (this one is for the hurlers only)

    - From 0-6 to World Champs (oops, this is just available for pre-order at the moment)
