I guess the question would be, what's considered the panic button? I don't think there's much that can be done, we've called up all the pitchers that we can call up. Outside of a trade not much else left.

Oh please, I bet The Panic Button contingency here had it pushed back on April 6th.

Tonight would have been a big loss in the sense that we started Esty and they threw a guy out with a robust 8.45 ERA. But you don't push the 'panic button' until it's September and the Sox are in 2nd place back 3 games with 3 to go.
This team hasn't played well at times but they never die, even in loses(17-14 to Expos)
You just got to hope that attitude clicks with improved play and new personel (Please God, Freddy Garcia, another bullpen arm, and Carlos Beltran)

Nice to see the edited in answer climbing fast. I am just bumping this up so people can get the chance to vote. Calling all real Sox fans. Don't let these wimps have the final say...

For a minute I thought this was the new ChicagoSports.com poll.

That is until I saw there was a legitimate option added! :redneck

As long as the Sox remain in this division they don't have to panic but they do need help in some key areas.

I just gave that added in answer a 19-18 advantage. And I'm with you IWC, though always on a pessimistic bent, Lip is usually pretty close to accurate in his observations on the Sox. "Usually."

Chicago: Manager Ozzie Guillen called a team meeting after Monday's loss. "We had a little meeting. I wanted to make sure they threw everything away and started a new season," he said. "It's not time to panic. You want to win the pennant? Every game is a big game for them now, no matter who we face." from usa today

Thanks for the added option Voodoo, otherwise I dont know what I would have voted for if at all. As much as I was ready to call it last night, once I am at home, away from the park and able to think rationally, I think how ridiculous and emotional myself and others here can get over a loss. I knwo they add up but considering where we were at at this point last year. I am still pleased despite some obvious gaping holes that I think will be mainly plugged by the end of July.

I can't even fathom the kind of personal trauma the "panic" voters would experience if they were fans of Houston, Cincinnati, San Diego, Boston, etc.

"O MY GAWD! THE YANKEES HAVE PULLED 4 1/2 GAMES AHEAD! MY LIFE IS RUINED!" *breaking into a run towards the edge of a cliff*

I was half-expecting to see which one would start a "Loaiza Must Go!" thread. :cool:
