In response to JimfromFlorida's comment:
All the time if they go on a losing streak they suk and will never win anything. Yet they Go 18 and 8 in April and few see it as a reality. That it is smoke and mirrors.
Yet they are in the top 3 of hitting OBP, Slg and Ave and 6th in pitching.
Few if any ever expected this team to play this well.
Yet as soon as they hit a bad spell nearly every one is saying I knew it, I predicted it, they suk, etc...
So bad are RS fans that there are several already to disband the team and replace it with all the kids.
Before the season most agreed a good start was needed. Well we got it and just because May has started slow in MAY the band wagon is nearly empty.
Most jumping off to support their claims/predictions in ST.. Some are so invested in having their claims/predictions come true they want to see them fail...YEAH you do...A bunch of you are so wanting Iggy, Bradley, Brentz, etc... brought up you want Napoli, Ells, Victorino, Drew, Gomes, Dempster, etc... to fail. Some even went after Clay after one bad game and bought into the cheating theory.
Folks gve it time. Why because you know diddly squat about MLB and what goes on in a clubhouse and the minors as well as what players are doing or working on in the minors.
what are you supposed to say if you think the sox are just not a good club? are you supposed to lie?
I expect you to look at the facts. Number 3 in hitting in all categories(slg/ave/obp) is a fact. They have recently had some badly pitched games but also had some damn good pitched games they lost.
I do not believe they are a 700% win team but I also do not think they suk as many here seem to think.
I believe there are several here as stated that want certain players to fail just so they can be right. Some are so happy both Bailey and Han are out they can not contain their joy.
Victorino and Dempster have been very good yet some are wishing for them to fail. Many were happy today. Yes Gomes and Drew are not performing up to par but only Gomes you can say has suked. The only guy they say nothing about is Ross.
It is a 162 game season there will be ups and downs. Bringing up the kids is not the answer.
I agree that if come July if they are out it they will sell and we will see some kids. I believe what they did before ST was exactly right. Got quality players with good chararcter and kept all of their potential players.
