It's silly to say the Sox are at fault that they couldn't capitalize. .
This is a major market franchise with money to spend playing in a weak division. For all the breaks that didn't go their way since 06', a lot went their way in 05'. The state of the Sox has more to do with other factors, rather than the baseball Gods smiling or frowning down upon them. Like putting people in positions of authority based upon loyalty rather than performance
This is a lot worse than just the normal cycle of being bad once in a blue moon. This is a deeply flawed organization that got exposed.
