Never give up, 61 Sox were 19-33 on June 11th. They won 19 out of next 20 games and finished 86-76. Anything can happen. Look at Twinkies last year and Indians in 05.

I don't think it's going to happen...sorry. Hope I'm wrong though.

Each year at this time 8-10 MLB teams are in the same boat the Sox are in now.
If every 5 years, one of those teams make the playoffs, that means we have a 1 in 50 chance of turning this around.
If it's all the same to you, I'm giving up on this year.

I'm not going to be even remotely optimistic unless the Sox get back to .500. It's going to take quite a streak to do that.

Of course, I'll watch tonight and hope we win.

That means the Sox played at .609 after June 11 that year. With 90 games to go this year, if they do that again they'll wind up with 85 wins.

Respectable, but no cigar.

This team doesn't have the balance, the health, or the bullpen to get really hot. I wish it was a different story, but nope. Not this year. Time to see our boys overhauled, and I am pretty excited to see how it turns out.

The 05 Indians didn't go anywhere.

Right now, I'd certainly take a 93-win season and being in contention for the playoffs until the last day of the season.

Excited? You probably also enjoyed those Bulls rebuilding years with Ron Mercer, Eddie Robinson, etc. I didn't.

Worse teams than this Sox team have made strong runs after struggling early in the season. These guys should at least get another three weeks or so to see if they can turn things around. If they still are struggling on July 20, then deal some veterans and bring up the prospects. I don't see why everybody has to be traded now. The guys in the minors aren't ready to come up anyhow.

This team does have offense: If guys just come close to their career averages, we will score some runs.

This team has decent starting pitching. This team has some relief pitchers who have had good years in the past. It's not out of the question for the bullpen to improve a lot.

The ingredients are there to make a run. So we might as well see what happens.

It might be small consolation to us now, but such a short-of-the-playoffs-rebound might stop a huge drop off in season ticket sales for next year ....which in turn may help give KW more payroll flexibility this offseason as he looks to plug our holes.
