Meh. Life is short. Get excited. If they flop, whatever, we can savage them then. But for now, I’m thrilled they’re winning games.They swept an Aaron Judge-less Yankees team and have won 2 against an under .500 Minnesota team that looks absolutely dead in the water. They are playing good baseball, but I'm not ready to get excited about them yet because they have not shown one bit of consistency. Let's see if they can continue this kind of play. One advantage they have is the schedule. From now until July 25th, they have only 9 of 26 games against teams that are currently over .500 and those are all in a row(3 vs. Miami, 3 at Toronto, 3 vs. Texas). In that stretch they'll have 6 games against Oakland, 3 each against the Cubs/White Sox/Mets, and the 2 remaining games with the Twins.
*edit* It really feels like some folks would rather be “right” in their proclamations of doom than see the Sox win. I don’t get that at all.
I also don’t get the whole “I’m withholding enthusiasm until they prove they deserve it” sentiment. Just enjoy things when they’re going well. Who cares if they’re “for real”? Take pleasure in the wins and if they collapse, so be it. Move on, check out, do something else with your time. Is one really going to suffer mental anguish if you start to “believe” in the Sox and then they start losing? It’s baseball and we’re adults. Come on.
