Everyone's Favorite Underdog?

New, 11 comments

By now, we've gotten used to being ignored. We've seen experts (Joe Sheehan) pick us to win 71 games during the regular season. Heck, I can point out plenty of pre-season experts who had us pegged for 4th place in the division. -- I knew how to deal with that.

So what do I do know?

I'm sure there's more out there, but that's about all I can stomach. -- I had this nice little system all worked out in my head. The Sox weren't supposed to do anything, so I didn't get my hopes up. They weren't picked to win the Central. They weren't picked to win the ALDS. I was cautiously optimistic that they could do both, however. Now that they are suddenly the favorites, I don't know how to deal with the pressure.
