Get better players = Win more games = Fans care more. I'm not the world's best mathematician, but that adds up to me.
That's adds up for me, too, but I have always thought the problems the Sox have had are more complicated than that. But I do think fans will also care more when ownership can instill confidence. The Sox ownership are not doing this. Period.
