TY to over ---770,000 readers---of my Yahoo Sports, Interview and News articles since 2/1/11.http://contributor.yahoo.com/user/977720/sean_obrien.html
Shane Victorino, Jimmy Rollins and Ruben Amaro held individual press conferences today.
These type of press conferences were hardly the type of activity that was expected from this team at this time of the year.
The uncertainty of every season has been pounded home by the last week.
However!!!! Do you remember the days when we were a sub .500 team? Do you remember when we never made the playoffs?
This is one of, if not, the best eras in team history.
So, we lost in the first round of the playoffs. Do you expect to win every series, every year?
That is what being a contender means. You won't always make it, but are in the game.
It seems like some fans are so conditioned to knee-jerk reactions to losing that they mentally defaulted to that exact position now.
I totally understand the feeling and have to remind myself of these facts.
