I like the cut of your jib. That kind of fan-friendly empathy for people's frustrations will get you far in this organization. I encourage you to contact HR if you ever want a position in our marketing/PR departments.

They don't go to the park to watch payrolls for the sake of payroll.
Some people think we should be packing the ballpark because the Sox were in 1st place for a few months during the middle of last season before finishing out of the running yet again.

WSI Sox Slow Start Excuse-O-Meter
- Poor play in spring training doesn't matter (2005!)
- It's still April
- It's early May
- Wait until Memorial Day before worrying about anything
- Wait until the weather gets warmer
- '83 Sox! '05 Astros!

- Still time to turn things around in 2nd half
- In Aug/Sept: Another lost season - time to bring back Ventura & Co for 2016.
Special mention: - Blame Sox fans for not showing up after another train wreck of a season.
