Yes, agreed, the best way for the Sox to murder or... whatever... the Cubs is to just ****ing win. We all know our fans can't be bothered to show up, even for a pretty good team in the middle of a play-off hunt (see 2012) so the only thing the Sox can really do to inspire anything around here is go on an unprecedented, historic run of success unlike anything since the 1920s-1950s era Yankees. Anything else will be abject failure, because WHAT'S THE POINT OF WATCHING BASEBALL if you don't win the World Series every year???
