I'm glad this thread exists. There's plenty to be optimistic about. Also, many people on this board could find fault if the team went 100-62 every year.

I like this board, and happily pay money to support it, but man all the dark cloud stuff gets old after a while.

I've enjoyed watching this team. We're in year one of a remodeling process. Anyone who can't see the improvement in terms of our long-term viability is blind. There's still plenty of work to do reshaping this team, but we added some good pieces, and subtracted some bad ones. I look forward to more, likely at the deadline this year, and certainly in the offseason.

Abreau and Sale make me still want to watch the games because they are exciting. I can't leave the screen, or the ESPN zone on my cell phone every time Abreau comes up...That in and of itself, is worth all the rest of the misery I endure at the usual conclusion of the game(s), lately..!!

Some people get good vibes through misery and sarcasm. I like it!

Doesn't the team have to be competing/good for someone to really be a dark cloud? I mean, the great majority of us expected nothing but rebuilding this year, so we can be a little more objective.

That's a little too meta for this thread, we're just talking about the Sox.

But knock it off

Yes, I suppose... they are usually about 12 years old.

It is okay to be optimistic but realism is needed too. Last place is last place and there is no way to sugar coat that. The Sox will be heading into 2015, and exactly 10 years after the World Series win, there has been only one playoff appearance, and one game won in the post-season. You can't sugar coat that. The up coming off season needs to be a good one or more losing will continue. No one can sugar coat that, either.

Ok, I thought I was being pretty clear here but apparently there is still some confusion, you can be doomy and gloomy all you like in literally every other thread on this entire forum. That's fine. Free country, Bill of Rights, Bald eagles, all that bull****... I can't stop you.

This thread is for people who sure, understand the Sox aren't all that great, but need a reprieve from the constant negativity and a small little escape, even if that means "sugar coating" or being "unrealistic" or whatever else you want to call it. This thread is specifically for "good vibes," if you want to be a sourpuss, that's fine, just not in here. I swear to ****ing god I am not going to explain this again.

Thanks-

Thoroughly enjoyed that. Much needed after the way the road trip has gone.

Well, it makes sense: Smokin' Cubans are perfectly legal in Canada.
