In response to andrewmitch's comment:
Remember when we used to have 6 guys on that team (2007) or our entire OF including the subs (1978). Well, those days are long gone.
We'll get our sole rep just like the Stros and Padres and every other loser team with a sub 50 mil payroll. Anyways........I don't even think it will be Ortiz this year given VMart's #'s........
I think it will and should be Koji. And no one else is deserving this year.
I think the last time we only had 1 guy was in 2001 w/ Manny. Usually we have 3 or 4.........
Remember 2007, Andrew? You were merciless in nailing the sorry Sox for all the misdeeds, not to mention a post season to forget.
Remember 1978, Andrew? Again, a collection of stars, but I cannot say I recall your postings from there or then.
But do you remember those teams holding up the World Series trophy? Do you remember those teams visiting the White House as World Series champs?
Yes, those days are gone.
Instead, we have some less heralded players, some developing players and something any of those Sox All Stars would love - a Championship team.
You are a weird one, Andrew. You are always sure the worst is about to happen, is happening and never recall the successes unless they support your current moaning.
