Surprisingly, Red Sox fans (at least some of them, this is by no means a scientific sample) don't seem that bent-out-of-shape about the loss of Johnny Damon to the Evil Empire. They're annoyed that he's going to NY, but not that upset about losing him as a player, esp at the price he was asking (and received from Georgie).
From afar, it looks like the Sox are imploding. However, the guys and girls who write and comment at Joy of Sox and Cursed to First know a heck of a lot more than I do, and are the first to wail when they think the Sox are doing dumb things. So far, we're not seeing any of that.
