Hence the reason for the ****ty organizational philosophy.

I've criticized for the overuse of the word, but he seems to have a pathological dislike (there I avoided it) for Viciedo. Yeah, he's raw, he'll probably never win a GG, or be a superstar, but it's too early to give up on him. He's a very streaky hitter. If you saw him like I did when he was on the Birmingham Barons you'd know what a long way he has traveled.

We still can't hit and as long as useless Dunn is in the cleanup spot we are doomed. The man is either stupid or stubborn not to try something else while at bat. Batting .100 is not even pathetic.
Ha, Dunn should try chocking up and using a bottle bat!

The Sox were 17-21 last year in the third week of May....4 games under .500. They then won 14 of 16 and spent most of the season in 1st place.
Sox are 8-12 on April 24 this year,and the season is over? No,it is not.

The offense is horrible,but that can change. I thought the A's were like the worst offensive team I had ever seen last year in May and June,and then by August they were unbeatable. Its baseball....never give up in April.

I agree instant gratification is used too much in today's world. However, I don't really blame some people to an extent. Think about it. We've been down this road quite a bit lately. Where, they hit like pure crap for a month and a half or so, and then go on a big run to get into contention. Then, they fade down the stretch. Last year, they stayed in contention until the last week, which is a little different. The other times, they fade right after the all-star break.

That said, I watch sports for entertainment, and I will continue to do that. I just hope Hawk doesn't make me turn on Baby First TV too much. My son goes to bed around 8:00...

Hey, I always hope or I wouldn't watch the games. Of course, there are fans of a bunch of other mediocre teams saying the same right now. Oh, and the Sox front office.
