At the park, tickets were cheap, bathroom lines were non-existant and promotions were good, so it was a fun year to go to games minus the general product on the field.

Despite the obvious flaws and questions that remain, did I miss any positives?
Who are the two Cal kids?

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.
