You can whine and mope all you like (god knows the team is bad enough right now) but the bottom line is that probably 15-20 MLB teams out there would trade places with us for the last 10 years for sure. So, you know, have some perspective and maybe act like an adult. It makes the place so much more enjoyable than having to read the constant and repetitive whining of crybabies.
Jerry Reinsdorf has done some good things but when things go south, they really have gone south. But the point is now where does the team go? Interest in the team is low, and there doesn't seem to be any direction. The challenge at the moment is how this team is going to rebound, and how long is it going to take. I hope the organization fully understands this because any acts of denial will only prolong a bad situation. This last week has been awful and it has been a long time since the club has looked this bad. And five years without a playoff doesn't cut it for me.

Not a good time to be bringing up the frikkin stadium... the stadium that was resdesigned and renovated at considerable cost over the years to resemble more of what the fans wanted when the original was built in 91", only to be told in 91" that they were getting 'state of the art".

They did get state of the art amenities. The complaints about the park in the late 90s mostly involved aesthetics...whining about seat colors and exposed concrete....which nobody knew they wanted until Camden and Jacobs opened later. Most sox fans were content with having their own version of Dodger Stadium.

Why are we fighting among ourselves? The entire organization sucks. Let's just revel in that!

We don't need to fight among ourselves and most of it is frustration anyway. As far as the organization goes, I just want to see signs that it understands the severity of the situation. There are no easy fixes, but it can make some moves to improve things. But then again the organization does suck.

The Tigers are stinking almost as bad...go figure.

JR has to make some hard decisions regarding his friends and organizational guys if he's going to turn this around. That's something that may be difficult, as loyal as he is.
