Can we PLEASE get a new fan poll?

I know I've joked about it in a thread or two in recent weeks, but I am really getting tired of the poll on the OTM home page: "Will the Red Sox make the playoffs?" along with the overwhelming votes that "No! This series was their final chance and they blew it."

I know it's last season, and it reminds me of the ridiculous injury riddle campaign, proving that most of the OTM readers knew it was over long before it became official, but isn't time to retire that poll and move on with a new one?

I also know I'm that rare breed of "glass half full" Red Sox fan (must be all the Hawaii sunshine) but I find it depressing looking at the reminder of our failed 2010 campaign. My friends find my eternal optimism regarding the Sox... well, mostly annoying. But this year?? We have such a bright future just a few weeks away!

Like, how about which Red Sox pitcher will win the 2011 Cy Young award, since it's obviously coming from our team based on improvement from 2010 numbers due to a superior defense behind them, a revamped bullpen that doesn't allow inherited baserunners to score, and an offense that spots the starter 5 runs a game inflating the all important - though not as much so in recent years - Wins total.

Or just whether the weather for the home opener will be bright sunshine or gray and cloudy?

Something, anything, PLEASE!!!

Am I the only one that wants to see a new poll posted???
