"A good thing is a Forum that is 80% negative and is top heavy with rival fans?"
And yet you love it here. Hmmm...
Even though there are much better moderated Red Sox forums out there that focus on the kinds of baseball discussions you claim to like.
Yet you prefer it here, gleefully revelling in the flaws that bother you. It's a riddle you have never bothered explaining.
As for me, I prefer a free for all discussion and like moving between several of the sports boards here.
That said I don't like BDC's current tactic of deleting specific posts, in my opinion that is way too subjective and it makes for very disjointed threads.
The serious issue you and I have is that you claim to be the judge and jury of who is a Red Sox fan and who is not. That's seriously tedious. I'm a fan just as much as you and have followed the team just as much as you or others here. It's just that you feel it's a fan's obligation to accept what ownership/team PR spoonfeeds you and I don't. So be it.
For the record I like the move the Sox have made in the offseason, I am probably in the minority here, though at the same time the moves made are not enough to build a championship team, so some of the verdict will have to wait. The Sox seem to have much more confidence that Farrell can right the ship of the team's pitching than I do, whereas I think we flat out need more pitching talent and that our pitching depth and talent is overrated by management, but hey, I would love to be proven wrong.
I will say I watched the NESN town hall and I loved hearing what Farrell had to say, seems like just what the team needs and a much better hire than Valentine.
