That '89 team was loaded with young talent and fans knew it. I think there was some excitement among Sox fans that better times were indeed only a year or two away.

2013 is not comparable at all. This organization has taken some important steps in the last couple of years of bottoming out from the talent void they were in, but they still have a long way to go with lots of holes to fill.

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 to games as soon as the team has one winning streak.
