View Full Version : We'd play the Pilgrims, Flubs the Dodgers

If the season ended today.

Every game in the Flubs/Dodgers series would be 1-0.

I call the Red Sox "Pilgrims" because any serious baseball fan knows that WE are the true "Sox" of the AL

Seriously, that's why it's imperative we win the division. Scioscia is easily the best manager in the game, but I'd rather go up against their staff and El Barto (or the hard luck A's) than the Red Sox staff.

I want to see us win at least 1 postseason series.

We have to get to the postseason before we can win a post season series!

just curious, but how are the White Sox the "true" sox?
I always thought the boston sox were established before our own pale hose.

Boston started as the Pilgrims. We were always the Sox (White Stockings originally, same difference).

My point is that the Least Coast bias I encounter on other boards always call the Red Sox the "Sox" and deride me or others if call the ChiSox the "Sox" Like they own the title.

It's just a microcosm of how our "curse" is overshadowed by their curse and the Flubs curse.

And when you think about it, our "curse' (Black Sox) is actually the most legitimate (in the context of "curses" that is).

We're the second team in Chicago, and we're the second "Sox" in MLB.

Whatever. That which doesn't kill us only serves to make us stronger.
