I love all of these 'supposed' Sox fans who are freaking out eight games in. If you were a REAL fan, you'd know that they ALWAYS START OFF SLOW. The Red Sox are always stuck with some B.S. road trip right at the beginning that sucks the life out of the team, but why would you take that in consideration – no, let's start freaking out about it.
As William Shatner said in the classic SNL skit, 'Get A Life.' Besides, there's hockey to be watched!
