Are Sox fans calling the red sox out only six games into the season?

The sights and sounds of Fenway being open for the season are just a few short hours away.  Just like any other Bostonian I live for this time of year, baseball season.  Yeah I know that the Sox will be 0-6 going into a big opening day/weekend series against the Yanks but unlike most fans at this point, I am not ready to leap from the Zakim just yet!

 So what if all the experts are saying no one has ever come back from a start like this. Come on this is the Sox we are talking about!  People were counting us out when we came back from that 3-1 deficit in the 2004 ALS to beat the Evil Empire.

Have some forgotten that we have suffered 86 years of heartache before they won two world series? Are people just used to the sox having a winning edge? I am sure it is a mix of both. There is no need to worry yet, our bats will get better and our pitchers will find their groove and they will not be "belly itchers" anymore. Everyone needs to take a step back and realize that if this was mid-season, people would not be thinking much of it, but because it's only the beginning everyone is getting off the band wagon! It's only up from here people! I would start to worry just a bit if we come out of this weekend win-less.

Hey it could be worse! We could be the 1988 Baltimore Orioles who went 0-21 BEFORE they got there first win. 

 So stay positive and GO SOX
