    [QUOTE]Yes I’m an optimist; I’ve seen the best and worst of times over the years with this team. And I witnessed all the improbable losses and incredible comebacks. Yes, being a Sox fan, I’ve experienced the agony and the ecstasy. But I feel that Bobby V and this team will win the ultimate prize-the 2012 World Series. I see a strong lineup with Crawford and Ellsbury and young Will Middlebrooks. And Matsuzaka will be a positive addition to the starting rotation. The bullpen will be bolstered in October with Doubront/Bard. So fasten your seatbelt and enjoy the ride! All aboard!

    The Hunt for Red Sox October is on ... 


       One might remember that the sub is most dangerous underwater ....

    Re: This team is built to win in October!

    Not only am I still waiting for to explain how Crawford will help the offense but I'd like to see your Starting Rotation for October.

    I believe you indicated that Bard and Doubie will be in the pen.  In addition, you mentioned Dice K.

    So am I to assume you go w/ a 4 man rotation of

    Jon "Don't Call Me Ace" Lester
    Josh "I've Fallen and I can't Get Up" Beckett
    Dice "5 Innings is all you get" K
    and the MAN MADE OF CLAY

    While your best starter is placed in the pen??????????

    I'm all for optimism but I can also see reality staring me in the face. Even if Ells, Crawford and Matsuzake-san return, I still don't see this team playing in October. Hope they prove me wrong.

    AB ... we ARE fans of the team that lost a 15 game lead and a 9 game lead very very late ... in essence we have to be optimistic or else history will drive us nuts.

    Oh ... wait.

    Yes, the team is built to win in October.

    Unfortunately, it is not built to win in April or May.

    Or June? I wonder.

    But I digress.

    Drive us nuts? That's a very short ride for me. As a matter of fact, I'm within walking distance already.

    The one flaw in your theory is that you have to play good during the year and win to get to the playoffs. this team cannot beat mediocre teams like the A s and the Os.

    Erratic starting pitching + unreliable bullpen + Swisher-type hitters who feast on poor pitching = a team built to win in July, the very opposite of a team built to win in October (see Texas). I think we'll turn it around and get to around 90 wins and be in the playoffs. But what's the point? We do not have an ace, we do not have a proven bullpen, and we have alot of choke artist millionaires in the lineup.

    If the season began and ended in October with a clean slate and no injuries I might agree.

    Re: This team is built to win in October!

    Do you really feel that this team is getting better during the year ? Dice K is a drain on the bullpen even when healthy who cannot get out of the 5th inning. I think Crawford is most likely done for the year as is Bailey. Ellsbury I do not want to even venture about with Boras as his agent. Boras guys always take their time coming back from injuries. Team was seriously flawed coming out of the Winter Meetings as well as Spring Training. Management went the cheap option of picking up garbage which they did in 2009 and the product that the fans are paying top dollar shows that. Management should give the fans a rebate.

    Re: This team is built to win in October!

    Are you saying we are built to win the last series of the year Oct 1-3 @ NYY? Those are the ONLY games we will play in October....period. Being positive, based on the overall history of our team and definately the current roster is....well not advisable. Right now, just end the season out of the ALE Cellar will be an accomplishment, seriously.
