Now that the season is finally, almost mercifully over, we here at Fire Brand are wondering -- what are you going to take away from this season? When you look back at this year, what is your reaction going to be?

Now that the season is finally, almost mercifully over, we here at Fire Brand are wondering — what are you going to take away from this season? When you look back at this year, what is your reaction going to be?

How will you look back at the 2012 season?

The previous poll took the pulse of the Nation post-trade. And by trade, I am of course referring to the deal that sent Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett and Adrian Gonzalez to the Dodgers. The poll results are interesting, because this poll stayed up for almost a month. I had a wedding and honeymoon to deal with, so this poll stayed up longer than it should have. The No. 1 answer remained the same, but what I found interesting is that the answer that ended up placing No. 2 made a very dramatic leap up in the last 10 days. I think that’s because the Red Sox clearly showed they have a lot of issues to sort through, while the initial knee-jerk answer was more optimistic.

How do you feel about the Red Sox post-trade?

  • Pretty good, not sure if it will work out but I’m intrigued. (36%, 292 Votes)
  • They still have a ways to go to make this into a team worth watching. (28%, 228 Votes)
  • Thrilled. This fell into our laps and I can’t wait to watch the Sox now. (21%, 171 Votes)
  • They had lost me, now they’ve got me back. (7%, 59 Votes)
  • This was a terrible trade! (8%, 57 Votes)

Born on the 37th anniversary of the the day Babe Ruth died (1985) which later became the day Jimy Williams was fired in 2001 (a monumental event at the time), Evan was too young to experience the pain 1986 brought, but a deep wound was sowed in 2003. Since then, Fire Brand has become a blog that Red Sox “club officials read,” as per Peter Gammons. Evan enjoys working out, writing, reading, quality television, science fiction and history and being newly married. He is a professional baseball journalist as well as president of a state non-profit and member of the Board of Directors for a national profit. (Twitter.)
