The guys we pay money to play baseball actually were capable of playing baseballI know that is crazy but it gives hope. Too bad the Sox don't have a closer and got rid of theirs' last year and didn't get one from someplace else. Of all their moves that was the most head-scratching for me. It was better than Dunn getting the "Golden Sombrero" for 4 strikeouts in a game like he did for opening day.
I bought a 14 game package this year which was pretty reasonably priced and very cool - you just click "best available" and every game they give you different seats in the 100 range (not bleachers). The seats have all been excellent so far even for opening day (the one we went to with Terry & Gerry). In the era before computers this would have been impossible but now it all happens with the click of a button.
This of course means that those great 100 level seats were mostly likely previously held by season ticket holders (like me) who bailed out as the 2005 world champions spiraled further and further down the drain and Ozzie ran his mouth like a broken toilet draining on the bathroom floor. If the Sox keep improving their game hopefully these seats will become ticket holders rather than 14 game package holders like me which will stabilize the franchise a bit. Nothing helps a franchise like winning.
