Every team other than the Braves are up and down this early in the season. Crazy hyperbole and flipping out over every loss really serves no purpose in baseball. I remember in 2010 after we blew six run leads TWO DIFFERENT TIMES in the ninth inning, everyone thought we were done. Also got swept by the Cards in August. That team sailed to the division crown.
No offense, but it seems you are overreacting -- albeit in a different way -- as much as anyone else is. Message boards would suck if everyone had the same way of looking at things. I've said it before; game threads are like a few friends getting together to watch a game together. Different personalities, different opinions, different reactions. Take my brother for example: it never fails that during the first few minutes of a Bengals game, he'll text me and say "we're beat", "we suck", etc. Then we go on to win and he's praising the team afterwards. Different strokes for different folks.
