Better not read the fan comments on the sports section of Boston.com. They are ready to trade everyone, fire Francona and Epstein, as well as the team trainers and medical staff, and send the owners packing.

Hopefully, there are many more that feel as your friend does. I know I'm one. I'm getting used to this. My Padres lost out on the last day of 2010 and my Red Sox duplicated the feat in 2011.

"WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR"

Just thought I would bring back some memorable names from the past for my fellow Red Sox fans. Don't know why but just got the impulse. Here goes:

Ted Williams
Jackie Jensen
Jimmy Pearsal
Pete Runnels
Frank Malzone
Carl Yastrezemski
Bill Monboquette
Sammy White

And I guess the list could go on and on and on.

I don't understand it BUT I CONGRATULATE them on their fanaticism and loyalty. Although their team didn't do it this year, they will continue to support them, and that is GREAT!!

My friend from Beantown sent me this email and spells it out real well. He writes:

"I am upset and depressed.
I mean, I really am.
It happened again!
Red Sox baseball season is over too soon.
We just lived through another Red Sox collapse...the worst ever.
Can never get used to this happening.
You may think..........................get over it, get a life.
Unless you are a member of "Red Sox Nation", you don't get it...you never
could.
Red Sox are a large part of our lives in Massachusetts/New England.
They are a huge topic of conversation (probably #1) in coffee shops, bars and
work all over.
To members of "The Nation", Red Sox baseball is our religion.
They drive us crazy all the time.
They are the love of our lives.
2004 proved that.
What do we do from here?
We move on.
It is almost like someone in your family dying.
We have to have our mourning period.
We will move on.

When it comes right down to it, though, we love our team no matter what. They
are a wonderful distraction from reality. We live for this team day-by-day and
it's always tantalizing watching them play no matter what happens. As a
lifelong member of Red Sox Nation, I do live and die with them.

If you don't get it, watch the movie "Fever Pitch".

We always have one of our least liked and much used statements..........

"WAIT TIL NEXT YEAR"

I will be there with hope, optimism and and enthusiasm."

Love those Red Sox!! But the better team won this year, TB Rays deserve a lot of credit, they kept on winning and we kept on losing, that's the bottomline. And Yes, "Wait until next year", all will be forgiven!! We love you guys. Stay tuned to 2012.
