I have supported many Sox teams over 35 years that do not deserve my support.

I have and will never root for an opposing player against the Sox solely because he was a beloved Sox player.

I do not agree with the "screw AJ" crowd here, but I also don't agree with your viewpoint on this. Middle ground is the best here. AJ can be both wrong and beloved.

And re: AJ, don't sound like a Facebook commenter. His services were not exactly in demand, the Sox knew they had a clunker of a team, and they decided to go the younger, cheap route. OK, so Flowers will prove they need another answer at catcher. Glad they did it this year rather than next.
Ridiculousness across all sports:

(1) "You have no valid opinion because you never played the game."
(2) "Stats are irrelevant. This guy just doesn't know how to win."
