Bravo. You couldn't be more right . And you are right a lot of people never even mention this . To me it is huge . All we hear is this " but they were in first all year garbage" and to that I say "so what", it seems like they are near or in first every year and the same choke job happens continuously . It has an underrated effect on attendance , because a lot of fans have seen this movie before and assume they are going to blow it anyway. Also, the Sox are always mediocre, around 83 wins on average, so despite the hailing of Kenny Williams as a genius by many, they don't inspire many hopes of contending for the AL pennant.
