View Full Version : The POSITIVE MOJO 8/17-8/22 roadtrip thread

After sitting through Thursday's Sox/Twins game and both Saturday and Sunday's Tigers games, positivity is approaching an all-time low. Of course, if the Sox can take the series in Minnesota, they're back in shape heading into Kansas City.

This thread exists to bump up the positivity a bit and help rally the troops (and keep some of us from throwing ourselves out a window).

LET'S DO THIS.

Hell yes! :thumbsup:

Nothing is over till it's over. I hope the team isn't already accepting defeat, not after they've come so far. We know how resilient this team has been, even when most of us had written the season off.

Mr. Danks, Mr. Floyd, Mr. Buehrle - time to step and and show us what you're made of. I'll be watching.

edit - just realized this is referring to the entire road trip, not just the Minnesota series. Carry on.

Isn't it time for the St Crispin's Day Speech? Or is it too early?

I'm there with the Sox thick and thin. Let's make it more than thick, let's make it phat and then let's fry some piranha for dinner...

I love that speech. Allow me to quote part of it.

But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother;

This is what makes me most hopeful.

I hope we put our best defense out there for all 3 games.

Vizquel must play all 3.

Jones (despite sucking with the glove on Sunday) should be in RF too.

Catch the ball, pitch the ball, and score just enough for this series. That's all.

With the state of the bullpen, if Danks and Gavin want to take it 8-9 innings, go right ahead. Don't stop now boys!

If you can't have a positive attitude when the team is 3 games back in August when many people wrote them off in May then you aren't trying hard enough. We've had a rough couple of weeks and we're still there... not even out of the WC running. I hope the team feel like people are behind them.

Whatever happens happens, it's out of my control, I am just glad that they are playing meaningful games into late August. The way this season started, it looked like I could tune the Sox out by the All-Star Break. Summers without baseball are summers not worth living.

That said, we may as just well win all these games.

Big series here, boys. I hope they're as a jacked up as I am.

I like the match up tonight. Take 2 of 3, and I am a very happy man.

Second biggest game of Johnny Danks' career tonight. Best of luck my friend, we know you have it in you.

Go Sox!

So I decided to use one of my favorite LoTR quotes here. I know this isn't a life and death situation, but bear with me:

"I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day.This day we fight!"

It's time to give those damn Twinkies the taste of their own medicine. No losing the series, no splitting it, we are taking every ****ing game. Sulking about past losses won't do ****. It's time to wake up and realize we still have ample time to take this division back. Let's go Sox!

I love this thread .. it's never over until you just give up .. so don't .. this is an important series for a few reasons, one of which is that we have to show the twins that we can beat them at home(or anywhere else) .. i'm quite possibly a bit too fired up for my blood pressure but damn the torpedos full speed ahead boys .. we go as our starting pitching goes ..

Brilliant. One the best posts I've seen at this place. I wish I could watch this series! Are there any national broadcasts?

Thanks. :smile: Unfortunately these three games are WCIU, CSN, and CSN respectively. A damn shame - these are certain to be quite the showdown. I'm sure a national audience would find them pretty interesting.

This series was being pumped by Minnesota media but with Favre coming back today, everyone is distracted. Maybe that'll distract the Twins and the hype around this series and create good MoJo for the Sox?

I don't know how that would distract the Twins on the baseball field - but **** it, let's go with that.
