— Where Thinking Red Sox Fans Obsess about the Sox
Wednesday, October 05, 2011
One phenomena which is quite interesting to me is how most of the analysts calling for Theo’s head, and talking about what a flawed team the Red Sox are, are the same people who were talking about how great this team was in the spring and July. People (and by people I include the Red Sox ownership) need to relax and stay the course with this front office.
There are decisions in life, unfortunately, where you do everything right in preparation and consideration, but the outcome disappoints. The 2011 Red Sox were an incredibly talented bunch. That everything went wrong all at once for this team in September is a major disappointment to me. Having said that, if this season could be magically played over a hundred times, this team would win a lot of games and make the playoffs most of the time.
The Red Sox have been a great team since Theo took over. Although he and the rest of his front office staff don’t deserve all the credit, they deserve most of it.
As a reminder, here is the team’s record since 2003:
If I had asked you in 2003, if you’d be happy with this type of success over the next eight years, would you really have complained?
Edit: Changed title. Jim
