A Postcard from Optimism

April 12, 2012

Remember how I mentioned, last time, that Optimism is on vacation?   Well, today, I received a postcard from him and thought I’d share it with you.  He makes some good points.


Dear A Fan Divided,

I’m having a great time on vacation but I heard that you’ve been down about the Red Sox.  Here are a few reasons to stay positive:

  1.  David Ortiz is off to a good start.  He’s batting .304, he’s slimmed down (he looks good) and he’s almost fast.  That steal attempt the other day almost worked!
  2. Dustin Pedroia
  3. We haven’t played a game at Fenway yet.
  4. All the starting pitchers have been sitting on the bench, or even the steps, intently watching the game on their days off.  Have you noticed all the not so subtle shots of them?
  5. Last year, the Sox started off the season 0 and 6 and missed the playoffs by one game.  This year, they’re 1 and 5.  There’s your one game.

Wish you were here!

Your friend,


P.S. Go Bruins!
