And Red Sox Fans Are Finally Going to Get Restless ...

"Theo, Tito, and John Henry (and mainly John Henry): Well, you got your work cut out for you now. You used to be BOLD, and no one has seen it in 5 years. The Yanks just out DID everyone here and you were left in their wake. Now, it's up to you to go out and be BOLD once again. Your NATION is requiring it of you. Failure will be on you and no one, especially you, should accept it. Be aggressive! Stand tall and do the most for your team. Find the right blend of excellence and personality and bring it to Boston. We can no longer depend on low risk high reward players like Smoltz. We all saw how (not) well he did this year. Go out and Get it!!!" -- Jack H., Red Sox Nation
