IMHO, the Sox can change this by having sustained success. The current model of making the playoffs ever 5-8 years is not how to do it.
Lip mentioned the Indians having their run in the 90s, Minnesota in the early 2000s and now, it appears, the Tigers. If it was the Sox winning Central Division titles every year I feel the tide would shift and it would be cool to be a Sox fan, especially with the Cubs being down for the next few years.
