Imagine if you could end the Curse of the Bambino by sacrificing the Green Monster. To lose the latter you'd bury the former. Would that make it a tough call still? Or, is part of the mystique of the fabled park predicated on them "breaking your hearts" annually since "No no Nanette" flopped?
Just wonder if you'd truly be happy if they actually won and what you'd be willing to give up for it.
Obviously the Yanks don't have this dilemma, though the 80s (despite Donny Baseball) sure were forgettable. I wonder if a team has done an astrological chart? (People have done charts on the US, taking July 4, 1776 as DOB, by the way.) Would explain some patterns, wouldn't it -- and perhaps yield a strategy to deal with them.
