Seconded. I've been guessing that the pace of the thanks thread has been slow mainly in the absence of real closure. This does a nice job of letting everyone turn the page. My instinct has been to pull for the Cubs, especially being in a division largely irrelevant to the Sox, and my reaction to reading his summation confirms that instinct. Go Sox, go Cubs.
That was awesome. No better summary of the past decade. It's the first time I really feel like it's the end of this era, and I'm now a bit more excited looking ahead. this may belong in the "Thanks, Theo" thread, but whatever: Theo, thank you for that gem of an essay.
And give us McNutt, fer crissakes.
