No, we don't know how the story ends. The idea that history is written by the victors has been wrongly credited to Winston Churchill, but he did say that, "If you are going through hell, keep going."

Ugly but rich, we can think of them as the baseball version of Lyle Lovett.

"Do not let us speak of darker days; let us rather speak of sterner days. These are not dark days; these are great days - the greatest days our country has ever lived; and we must all thank God that we have been allowed, each of us according to our stations, to play a part in making these days memorable in the history of our race." - Speech at Harrow School, Oct. 29, 1941

Also

"Jellico was the only man on either side who could lose the war in an afternoon." - World Crisis 1927 (Substitute your favorite Sox scapegoat for Jellico i.e.: Politte, Cotts . . .)

The Dark Side, it is strong in him (especially when he speaks with reporters after any game he's lost).

"When I warned the Chicago media that Ozzie would fight on alone, whatever they said, their reporters wrote that Ozzie and his divided clubhouse would have their necks wrung like a chicken by the Cleveland Indians. Some chicken! Some neck!"

"Don't talk to me about Red Sox tradition. It's nothing but rum, sodomy and the lash."

"Never give in. Never, never, never, never. Unless you are a Cubs fan, in which case you should get a life, loser."

I always avoid prophesying beforehand, because it is a much better policy to prophesy after the event has already taken place.

It is no use saying, 'We are doing our best.' You have got to succeed in doing what is necessary.

Sir Winston Churchill took three years getting through eighth grade because he had trouble learning English. It seems ironic that years later Oxford University asked him to address its commencement exercises. He arrived with his usual props. A cigar, a cane and a top hat accompanied Churchill wherever he went. As Churchill approached the podium, the crowd rose in appreciative applause. With unmatched dignity, he settled the crowd and stood confident before his admirers. Removing the cigar and carefully placing the top hat on the podium, Churchill gazed at his waiting audience. Authority rang in Churchill's voice as he shouted, "Never give up!" Several seconds passed before he rose to his toes and repeated: "Never give up!" His words thundered in their ears. There was a deafening silence as Churchill reached for his hat and cigar, steadied himself with his cane and left the platform. His commencement address was finished.

I'm surprised no one has done the speech from the the beginning of the first disc of Live After Death from Iron Maiden.

We shall go on to the end. We will fight in the AL Central. We will fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the pitching. We shall defend our Title, whatever the cost may be. We will fight indoors and outdoors. We will fight in the rain, sleet or snow. We shall fight the Twins, we shall fight the Tigers, we shall fight the Red Sox, and the A's. We will fight on natural grass or artificial turf. WE SHALL NEVER SURRENDER.

Now we need our aces to be high in quality starts and games won and low in ERA and games blown.
