    Winning.  If this club turns it around, then they are actually quite likeable.  Everyone loves the underdog who was counted out and in complete dissaray only to dig deep, with surprise heroes no one saw coming, and finds a way to win.  

    Face to face, out in the heat
    Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry
    They stack the odds 
    Still we take to the street
    For the kill with the skill to survive

    I like this team.  They are the Red Sox despite not playing well.  There are no players on the team I actively dislike, unlike a few people on this forum!

    Changes (other than playing staff)?:
    • I did not want Valentine and think he will fail, but he's got to be supported for now...he's our manager!
    • I am dubious of Lucchino's value i.e. seems to create money wherever he goes but seems - from my distant vantage point - to be disruptive as well.
    • I'm very happy with Henry - how can one not be other than assumed distractions from LFC?

    They're not going to win.  They weren't put together to win.  Sure, if everything went their way, then maybe they'd be competitive, but even then they weren't WS material.

    Accept it and get over it.

    6 game win streak would do it.  Bonus round: overperformance by 3 members of the 'pen ... if we are reading "Taz for closer" threads in a few weeks that would be a good sign.

    What kind of a title for a thead is it when it's based on the premise that people don't like the team?

    Although I don't know any of the team members personally I LIKE this team - as a team.  They hit some adversity early on with Bailey and Ells, but I'm not going to dislike them over that!

    I don't think they're overall as talented as last year's team but I believe they're playing hard and doing the best they can.  I also appreciate the fact that the team rallied around Youk when BV questioned his commitment, but I'm not sure BV didn't do that on purpose to unite the team.

    Amazing how fast folks' jump ship huh Hammah?  I find it hilarious how many of the same people who have already buried the 2012 Sox are calling those of us who still see a lot of story left to be written "pink hats".  Really?  Talk about the pot calling the kettle ... pink.  

    Loving what the kids are doing.  Doubront's awesome start lost in the weeping and gnashing of teeth over the 'Bobby Valentine's Day Massacre'.  Kid is solid, at least.  Tazawa might be a real nice addition to the punch-happy pen.  Hope to see Lavarnway soon.  Hopefully they can use this upcoming soft stretch to get their legs.

    Hi Jetes, yeah it's been kinda tough. dealing with some stuff family wise. no big probs though. thank gawd it rained last nite. lol.

    and yeah space, lots of positives I agree. I see help is on the way man. CC is just about ready to come back and take left field over. and yeah with all the razzin I'm gonna get, I am psyched to see the dice man take the hill. all good reports coming outta florida about him. breaking ball great, throwing + 92-94 with movement. I figure that when we get these guys we should get a healthy jake back to reclaim center field. looking forward to getting back on a winning streak with the twinks tonight space.

    come on boys, let's get busy!
