Is it my wishful thinking, or is this upcoming series the kind of thing that could lead to major changes if the Sox collapse? If we stumble out of Minnesota, isn't that exactly when a team shakes things up by making management moves? I remember earlier this year the Royals lost 11 of 14 and got swept by Baltimore, losing the final game 13-0 at home, which is when the owners huddled and finally decided to can Muser. If we get swept by the Twins and fall 10 back, isn't it time?

Honestly, I can't root for our boys anymore. I know I'm going to get blasted for saying that, but it's true. I'm not saying I will root against them, but I just can't root for them either at this point. Sadly, I think it's the first time in my life I've said that. They have no excuses, the team is healthy, they just don't care, and the manager is an idiot. I have no sympathy for them anymore. The only good thing about that is when the strike comes, I won't be too upset.

One person I will be rooting for is Konerko though - I hope he can win the RBI crown, that's all we got this season.

I would rather see a strike than to see the Twins win the division.

Real Sox fans will always root for the Sox to win, but Michigan Ave is full of frontrunners heading north right now...and they ain't driving to Minnesota.

I would say so, but don't look for any changes from our brain trust.

Any change would be minor and cosmetic-Major change would be an admission of many mistakes by manager & GM,and that is something that just aint going to happen.

Does it have anything to do with 7 being Manuel's uniform number??
