It ain't how you start. It's how you finish that counts.

"But, at the same time, you can be realistic about it and recognize that we haven’t been worth a [expletive] so far."

Theo Epstein

"How it will be defined is how we handle frustration. Are we going to be tough? Are we going to dig ourselves out of it? Are we going to make excuses? We’ll find out. This is a time for us to show what we’re made of. I believe that.’’

Terry Francona

8-11 to start the season and Theo and Tito are a little testy.

Throw in Rakes and Trot getting up at 4 a.m. and that makes three of us.

All that said? I got a feeling that come October I'll be looking back at April like I look back at trying to potty train Trot.

It was at times ugly, messy, and down right disgusting.

But in the end?

It all came out OK.

I've got a close friend who is a Yankees fan (I know, I know - how could I possibly be friends with someone like that?) who, when I lament about the Red Sox, reminds me that it's only April. He always says, "I wish I could be happy about the Red Sox' poor record so far this season, but it's way too early in the season." I hope he's right.

He is, Chrissy. It's just hard to believe right now. ;)

Any poor 20 game stretch can ruin a season in the AL east. I fear it may have, hope it hasn't,

Have I told you that you are much too young to be this cynical?
