Do other teams do these slogans? They always seemed like a purely Sox thing to me, I hope I'm wrong

How's this? It's marketing gold:

There was a young team on the Ryan
Whose fortunes just seemed to be dyin’.
The free-agent cycle
Brought them Dallas Keuchel
And tickets you now should be buyin’.

The cubs had "Everybody in" for the last couple years - IMO, one of the most insipid team slogans/marketing campaigns ever.
As for the Sox, I'd prefer they go slogan-less until after they have a winning season.

It all started with the Grinder Rules/Win or Die Trying from 2005. Sox fans have nostalgia for that stuff.

Loved "Grinder Rules." Great campaign.

Great campaign, bad baseball.

Edit: I associate Grinder Rules with 2006, and Kenny/Ozzie’s fetish for players who were “grinders” even if they weren’t actually good at baseball. But I guess they did roll it out in 2005.

The "Good Guys Wear Black" slogan from the early 90s was a pretty popular one.

This was shortly after the Sox switched to their black pinstripe uniforms.

It started way before that, at least in the 80s.

There was "The Stars at Night", "Chicago's American Pastime", "Winning Ugly", "Let's do it again (Like we did last summer)".

I was a doubter, but maybe, just maybe we can win with pitching, defense and fundamentals.
