Don't forget Friday nights are usually thin anyway plus it's prime vacation time.
These are all factors but its the team's performance that is failing to inspire posting. And based on the tone this week specifically, I believe more than a few people who get drunk on negativity have been understandably over served.

I dunno, 05 at least they rallied to make the playoffs. 06 they were just in third gear all year.

This version never seems to get the two out hit. They never seem to get the double play ball they need. Lately they don't seem to get that great catch in the outfield either. Basically everything that they seemed to get last year. Baseball is a funny-ass game, boy.

We all know what happened the next year after 2006, however...
2005 they were coming off a historic title, had the best 3-4 punch in the modern history of the game (45+, 144+) led the league in most offensive categories as this year I think,


had Super Genius on the "roster" but couldn't replace a pitcher past his prime but still good because he wanted "too much" and had disappointing starters, and then got swept in the playoffs (yes at least they got there)

Five pages for a Sox-Yanks game thread says it all. This is a boring, mediocre team. They can’t sustain a run of really good baseball.
