    Relax. No, I mean it. Relax.

    After I checked the score yesterday, I freaked - for a second or two.

    After I checked the score and story lines today, I did it again.  For a minute or two.   I actually threw something {An air punch}.  

    And King Felix tomorrow - well, today.  Man, things look bad.

       ...I'm not without feelings, aftter all.

    I was not eager to get on line and see all the suicide notes and angry, bitter stones thrown at the Sox.  I do understand the frustration, but ...

     
       But I'll be darned if I'm throwing this team away after a difficult month.

    It was APRIL, for Pete's sake.  Four games under .500

       My calendar suggests that there is May, June, July, August, and September yet to go.

      BEFORE we enter the playoffs.

      Take a BIG breath .... hold it  ... let it out slowly.

      Take several, if you need.   Grab a bag ... no - a PAPER bag - and breath slowly into it

       1 month down.

       5 to go.

       Check that, 6 to go ....




    I feel your pain.  It's mine, too.

    But relax ... 

       Kiss your sweetie...

       Pet your cat ...

       Walk your puppie....

       Heck, some of you need to go to confession ... good time to catch up....

       And if you have no other life beside our beloved Beantowners - make up an alter ego - an opposite of your worst fears.  See if you can bring him or her to life .... 

       Homework checked                      in November!

    I'm relaxed, just listening to some Weather Report and reaping the benefits of some skin from the game.

       GM is always fore something ... it's just his outlook on life.

       And I don't think he plays golf.

    Oh, he plays golf alright. He - Softy - appears to be quite a knowledgeable golfer.
    And I'll bet he plays a very good game. But he tries to transfer that knowledge by making golf/baseball analogies that miss the mark more often than not.

    The Caddy/catcher one epitomises this.

    Ahh ... yea, forgot that ... 

       I play golf, too.  Or rather, played.  All my old golfing buddies died.  

       Or live several states away.

    Relax Relax

    When the Red Sox get shut out again today by king Felix will it still be time to relax.

    This team WILL NOT make the playoff and will finish 4th in the AL East.

    Relax you can alway watch your videos of 2004 and 2007.  This season is over!

    Re: Relax. No, I mean it. Relax.

    Im still relaxed Yaz. well exept for my one air punch after Dice stunk it up again and right before he threw 2 gems in a row. It is only April, albeit one of their worst April's Ive seen in a while, but Im still optomistic . Im a little worried about Dice-K's elbow and the lack off offense, but like Ive been saying all along...Too much talent on this team to be this bad all season. Ellsbury is starting to shine again in the leadoff spot (right where he should be) and salty has started to hit the ball a bit. May is a new month and I believe we will see the Sox turn it around.

    Re: Relax. No, I mean it. Relax.

    I am with you guys as far as relaxed. But, I can't stand watching our offense look like this. It's really been a struggle just sitting and watching our guys swing at terrible pitches. This is concerning because we normally grind out at bats. Even Pedey and Youk are swinging and missing way too much. Crawford looks as though he has given up. Frustration is mounting and here comes the Angels who you no want to kick our butts. We need a couple shut outs pitched or we may be 6 or 7 games under 500 soon. Lets start the new season today with a grinding victory over the King. Lets kick his butt.

    The redsox started like this last yr and with the Rays and Yanks constantly winning the redsox were not able to recover. Can you really relax when you have the Yanks and Rays in your division with a team that sometimes looks like it can't get out of its own way?

    That was last year. I agree with the OP that you can't write a team off after just 1 month. The Sox will be just fine. They will not play this bad all season.

    Re: Relax. No, I mean it. Relax.

    I agree with the original post - it is good to relax.

    Time to watch the Celtics and Bruins.  Put the Sox way back on the back burner.  Check back in when June rolls around.  This team is too pitiful right now to follow daily and analyze every play.  It will drive you insane.

    If they are 22 and 32 - go straight to panic mode.  But even 22- 32 isn't the end of the world.  It is that kind of garbage play that may just get JD Drew out of Boston once and for all.

    Is it going to rain today in Boston or something?

    Do you think we'll be able to maintain our 11-15 record for one more day?  Please just one more day.  I don't want to get into mid-May and fanstasize about the good ol days in April when we a respectable 11-15 team........

    Re: Relax. No, I mean it. Relax.

    If I'm not mistaken, they were further back in the standings last year at this time. And what happened over the next two months? They went on a hot streak and were almost in first place. Then Pedey broke his foot. And other disasters occured. And even then they still fought and had a chance. 

    I understand. I feel the frustration. But yes, SinceYaz, let's relax. I'm with you. I'm not writing this team off after one month.

    This is baseball people!!!

    I agree.  Relax and enjoy only being 4 games under 500 whilst being able to maintain the delusion we can somehow pull ourselves out of the basement.  May as well Relax now right?

    4 games under .500 on May 1st and you're saying it's a delusion?? Okay...you go ahead and believe that. Go cry in your corner and wait for next year.

     If you truly believe that you better go find a different sport. I hope you're just trolling, cause that was a pathetic thing to say, especially if you call yourself a fan of not just this team, but any team.

    SO,

       all of you little darkings of dark thoughts,

       tell me what happened today?


       I'll still check you guys at the door when we win the Series. 

       ... and if by some slim chance we don't,

         at least I'll have fun anticipating something good instead of living in the dread fear of something bad.

       This is supposed to be a funny poke at me, but I'll take it.  I spent several summers at our church camps singing, "Kumbaya, My Lord, Kumbaya.  Kumbaya, My Lord, Kumbaya."

       It was first sung as a vespers song, which is the specific invitiation for the comforting SPirit of God to "Come by here." 

      Thus, your joke, is my comfort.  I still ask the Lord to come by here ... where ever that may be.  I specifically ask Him to bless my donut production each evening as I start that it may somehow be of glory to Christ.  I'm blessed to have the work and I want to do the best I can ... and the only way it can be the best is if He's in it helping.

       Kumbaya, indeed!
