    Along with listening to Kenny Williams. He's always talking up the Sox's chances before the year, then ends up
    throwing the usual midseason tantrums when players fail to live up to their "potential."

    CERTAINLY NOT FROM YOUR DELIBERATELY PESSIMISTIC BAISED STATISTICAL FORECAST
    KEEP SALE
    GO FOR IT
    TEAM IS A LOT CLOSER THAN ONE THINKS

    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 ?






    IF IT TOLD YOU, IT WOULDN'T BE MAGIC

    This joke of a franchise is now one of the worst managed in professional sports.

    It is what it is.

    A joke.

    Goofs rambling on about Ventura can not see the forest through the trees.

    TALENT MATTERS.  Real talent.  Not Fanboy imagined bullshit.

    Division winners had an average of 6 the top 100 ML players on their team.   Cubs had 8 such players.
    Sox had 3 (Eaton, Sale, Quintana).   That pretty much sums up the winners from the also-rans.
