Re: The Sky is not falling!!
And last night Reds win....get beat 20 to zip it still counts as 1 loss. Players learn quickly to forget last results. Or go home and become frustrated fans themselves because the failure rate in baseball will destroy the worry wart. No matter how bad a loss feels it is still just one game. I feel the same anguish at times but I guess I learned when I played...its the next time that counts...and let it slide out of my mind. The only losses I remember are season defining...like last years po debacle...the '99 loss to the Mets. All the rest just blur together. Even on a great team the "hair tearers" must suffer. Even the best rarely win much more than 20 games more than they lose.
