The Red Sox are referred to as "The Sox"!!!!!
WSI Sox Slow Start Excuse-O-Mete
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: Too late to complain about poor performance earlier this season.
Special mention: - Blame Sox fans for not showing up to games as soon as the team has one winning streak.
