It's Always Darkest Before The Dawn.
No team has ever started 0-4 and won the World Series.
Before 2004, no team had ever gone 0-3 in the ALCS and come back.
I'm pretty sure I remember a "Andy Griffith" episode that said no deputy who put his bullet in his pocket ever amounted to anything, yet if I say the name "Barney Fife" I'm pretty sure some 12 year old in Uganda would shout out "I know that guy!"
0-5 sucks. No doubt about it.
But don't let us win tomorrow. We've got Lester, then Lackey, then Buch, and then Beckett. A wise man, well Red at Surviving Grady, once said: "Every team will win 50 and lose 50. It's what they do with that other 62 that matters."
