I strongly disagree with this. Although my reason why probably belongs at PI.

Someone who doesn't care about the team probably doesn't watch the games anyway.

I disagree also. Nevertheless, people should be able to call out lollygaggers for lollygagging without fear of being called racist.

I thought that at the end of 2011 it was clear that Rios was frustrated. I remember in August and September he was throwing his bat and smashing things in the dugout. Earlier in the year it did look like he was dogging it a bit, but by the end of the year it was clear that he cared and was just frustrated as all hell.

I'm no big fan of Hawk anymore, but I kind of like how "The Will To Win" has caught on. If the team were any good (which it isn't), something like this could catch on like "Winning Ugly" did thanks to Doug Rader. It's certainly better than the lame-o "MakeAnImpact" official slogan that Sox marketing came up with.

When I first read this, I honestly though you were saying "1.95% of the baseball world".
