Life is too short to be so negative and miserable all of the time.
One can be neagative about one's team's chances, but still wildly enjoy watching them play.
There were some fans like this for over 80 years.
Having some negative thoughts is not equated with miserableness in my world.
I, for one, know I will thoroughly enjoy watching every single pitch of every single Sox game this year. Being a realist does not interfere with loving baseball for what it is: the best sport in the world!
Baseball for baseball's sake.
