The inaugural Red Sox Maineiacs poll results are in, and in a shocking upset, the Red Sox have been picked to win the AL East this year. In a related story, all three of the posters so far on this blog have predicted the Sox will win the World Series. Conclusions drawn from the poll:
1. The Collapse of 2011 has not dampened the Sox spirit of this group. Whether that makes us diehard fans or gluttons for punishment remains to be seen.
2. It was a terrible poll question. It was like asking a group of democrats who will win the presidential election, or a Google employee what their favorite search engine is. I'll do better with the next one.
3. Nobody believes in the Blue Jays! There's plenty of room on this bandwagon! Sigh. I can't quit you Blue Jays.
