I don’t ever recall a time where expectations for the Sox have been so high. Even the two championship years had expectations of being competitive but not favored to win it all. This year is different; can you even pick up a baseball magazine without seeing a picture of Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez gracing the cover? Both of them were the cover story on my USA Today Sports Weekly and The Sporting News. This year looks and sounds different from any other year in my recent memory. Eminem sums it up best with the words “Success is my only motherF—–g option, failure’s not” How true are those words today? You can use every cliché in the book, but anything less than a World Championship will be considered a failure this year. 817 days
