A fast start may drive ticket sales, allowing the Sox to be buyers at the deadline, perhaps for an impact bat.

A slow start may put the Sox in position to be sellers; their veteran relievers in particular may bring prospects in return.

The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
