I’m probably like most of you, when I saw the Sox lineup they released for their game on Wednesday against the Braves and thought really nothing of it. I was even less surprised getting the notifications that the Sox were down 7-1 heading into the 8th. Then suddenly this team did what they’ve always done this year and fought back to win the game 9-8. Love it! Love the fight!
Again, I’m sure I’m not alone in thinking that was just another great sign from this team moving forward towards the playoffs. Outside of Pomeranz sucking once again and allowing 5 runs while only getting 1 out, it was an overall positive game. Right?
Apparently some nut jobs out there are mad at Alex Cora for the lineup he put out to start the game? Seriously! These air heads are so mad that he did this because they want the Sox to beat the single season record for wins. The record is 116 games which was set by the 2001 Seattle Mariners. Pretty Impressive not going to lie.
You know what isn’t impressive tho? The Mariners didn’t win the World Series that year. Guess what that means? NO ONE GIVES A SHIT! I will admit the record would be cool to see IF the Sox go on to win the World Series this year. I would be 100% fine with the Sox loosing every single game the rest of the year if it meant them making it to the playoffs and winning it.
Those single season records don’t mean shit if you don’t close out the year with a duck boat parade! We’re not the Colts and hang banners for making it to the AFC championship game and getting our faces stomped in. We hang banners for championships and championships only.
All I care about is Championships so if that means resting our starters a few more times before the end of the year in order for them to be healthy and ready to roll come October, then fine by me! I’ve said it before and ill say it again, it is World Series or bust for this team plain and simple. So, my message to all you fans who are mad at Cora for DOING THE RIGHT THING! Go move to Cleveland or some other loserville town and hang your stupid regular season record banners up; because here in Boston we only care about Championships! See Ya DINKS!
