Today's exercise in Chinese philosophy incorporates the terms Yin and Yang into a view of the Boston Red Sox. I have always considered the term inseparable, contradictory opposites, with the Yin being the positive and the Yang the negative. A far more refined description can be found here.

In 2023, things stayed the same in how Red Sox Nation viewed all things Red Sox. The house divided most notably on the topic of Chaim Bloom but extended well beyond Bloom into individual players. The ups and downs of Tristan Casas and Rafael Devers, the failures of Corey Kluber and Trevor Story, and the spending habits of the ownership.

Now, the 2024 season is gearing up, and will those gears function smoothly, or will they spindle and mutilate like computer-punched cards from a bygone era? This is my look from a Yin/Yang perspective of what awaits in 2024.
