Don't Panic!


Tuesday, April 10, 2012 by

Since the season started I have watched Nation fan after fan flip over the 0-3 start. The majority of them seem to think it has to do with a lack of caring. This is a notion I just can't get behind. Are there members of the Red Sox with bad attitudes? Yes. There are members of every team with bad attitudes. Is that the reason the Red Sox started 0-3 and went 7-20 in September last season? Not likely.

I actually read one fans take on Melancon saying that he is disrespectful to Red Sox fans. Seriously? The guy has had two appearances in a Sox uniform. Another "fan" said that Beckett should be traded for draft picks because he hates Boston. Draft picks?! Now that's just plain ridiculous.

Any level headed fan can see that the struggles radiate from the act of pitching. Nothing more. To say that the players don't care is over dramatic. This is even more evident with the (game 4) win over Toronto in which Felix Doubront, Scott Atchison and Alfredo Aceves threw gems and were a major part of the 9th inning comeback.

So just remember, its only 3 games. Red Sox Nation must not fall apart.

Here is your lineup for the 04/10 game at Toronto: Ellsbury CF, Pedroia 2B, Gonzalez 1B, Ortiz DH, Youkilis 3B, Sweeney RF, Ross LF, Salty C, Punto SS, Bard P

And here is a little motivation to keep you going...
