    When are the HUGE Win Now moves going to start?


    The moves last season were spectacular.


    When REAL Free Agency ended these Win Now clowns last Winter and Spring really got the Fanboy juices flowing.


    Mentors like Rollins.


    Guys off the street like Jackson and Latos


    That signing of Morneau for the Playoff push was brilliant.


    How about that trade for James Shields?


    This Win Now certainly is a brilliant strategy.


    The next best idea is to use September as a Spring Training month and basically THROW GAMES!!!


    HOW IDIOTIC CAN PEOPLE BE???

    I have not opened mine.


    I need a bomb sniffing dog to come by first.


    The thought of opening it with this for shit Owner and Management makes me vomit in my mouth.


    This WIN NOW worked once.  Lightning in a Bottle.


    It is now a pipe dream for MORONS like Murph and has been for years.


    Seasons have ended July 1 and these dimwits do nothing at the trade deadline to indicate they have any idea what they are doing.


    This is one fucking joke.

    Come on Bob. You have to wait until at least the winter meetings are over? I mean, we won't find out any sooner if the Sox are able to pick up another Alomar. Maybe Drake LaRoche will be in the system by then.

    Last year, Eaton had a career year, and Quitana and Sale were very near their career bests.  What happens if Eaton regresses or either Sale or Quintana have an overdue offyear or DL season in 2017 ? Even though the Sox in theory have money to spend and would be willing to spend it, the offensive free agents are slim pickings and of course the farm system has precious little to offer. 
    Not sure where the optimism for 2017 will be coming from.

    Actually am somehow registered onto that SFOD site and have occasionally read some things, but never post there. I recall some of their comments this year were basically blaming Ventura for just about everything. While no fan of Ventura, I'm pretty sure he didn't make Shields and the offense suck as badly as they did.

    John kept adding me until All Knowing Murph blocked me.

    Murph posts to himself.  Makes up idiocy.

    That page of his is nothing.

    He can add as many people as he wants.

    Closer to what ?  Sure as hell not the playoffs.  In both of these last two "win-now" seasons the Sox have missed the final wild card spot by 12 games and the AL Central championship by at least
    16 games.    At least in the two years before the Sox's fantastic 2005 season they were a .500+ club and were within single digits of the AL Central lead (4 and 9 games out).
    Where is the magic coming from in 2017 ?

    The Sox are right now as close to the playoffs as I am to my dream threesome of me, Debra Messing, and Sarah Michelle Gellar.

    Where is the magic coming from in 2017 ?
    OK, teams can rise from the ashes like Indians/Red Sox did this year or Cubs/Rangers in 2015.  But it takes some combination of 1) young players blossoming into stars 2) key new players filling voids
    and/or 3) good players rebounding from injuries or offyears.  So what about 2017 Sox ?

    1- Sox have Anderson and Rodon.  They may get better in 2017, but both have some flaws. Are either really stars in the making ?
      
    2 - As to "new players", this year's free agent crop is weak and the few good names like Cespedes, Fowler or Chapman will command huge $$$.  Reinsdorf has always proved his willingness to step up for the big $$ right ?

    3 - Sox were healthy in 2016 and only two big "rebound" candidates are Abreu and Shields.
    That assumes Abreu's 2014 was his true self and his declining 2015-2016 seasons weren't.  
    Shields will be 35 years old.  Need we say more ?

    So exactly how does a Sox fan become optimistic about 2017 ?  Maybe drinking a lot is the key.

    Shoving one's head up one's ass in March brings optimism.
