I just really love baseball, so Sox season is the best part of the year.
I still go to plenty of games with friends--I'll pick opponents with players that interest me, etc.
If the Sox aren't playing as well I'm more likely to follow the rest of the majors closely to make up for it.

plus NYC parks and Minnesota
plus PNC Park in Pittsburgh
