Down, But Not Out

The worst thing the Red Sox did was come back from being down three games to none in the 2004 ALCS. Because now, when they're down, all I say is "Don't count them out. After all, they came back against the Yankees ...!"

So that's what I'm saying now, naive as it may be. In the words of my Yankee fan friends, and to quote what they were saying in April (and May, and June, and July), it's a long season. We've had a bad week — a very bad week. But there's still a month and a half left to go in the season, and we're less than a handful of games out. 'Tek and the others will come back right when we need them, and then we'll have the extra power to go back into first place and win the division. But even before that happens, we'll rally. We don't stay down for long. We can still rebound from this slump.

Don't count this team out just yet, folks.
