As we've learned this week, those things tend to take care of themselves. They are not legitimate concerns for fans to have.
Sox management's track record over the last 6 years or so suggests otherwise. After years of the Sox approaching to competing being "let's let the farm system rot, slap some underdogs together, and see if we can surprise everyone", i'm not sold on the idea that Sox management fully "gets it". Maybe things are different now under Hahn, but KW and Hahn were the brain trust that led us into this mess and they're still in charge (each with a promotion).

But, as you say, it looks like these concerns are taking care of themselves.

WSI Sox Slow Start Excuse-O-Meter
- Poor play in spring training doesn't matter (2005!)
- It's still April
- It's early May
- Wait until Memorial Day before worrying about anything
- Wait until the weather gets warmer
- '83 Sox! '05 Astros!

- Still time to turn things around in 2nd half
- In Aug/Sept: Another lost season - time to bring back Ventura & Co for 2016.
Special mention: - Blame Sox fans for not showing up to games as soon as the team has one winning streak.
