“So, yes. I’m upset. But mostly I’m upset because in the blink of an eye, the Red Sox’ season ended. No game tonight or tomorrow or next week. And I wasn’t quite ready to say goodbye. So the bitter taste will remain for a few weeks. Maybe a month. Then, right around the time December ends, we’ll get Spring Training Fever. Because that’s what we do. If there’s anything positive to be gleaned from all of this, it’s that in 2003, we never felt lower. Then, the very next season, the unthinkable happened. So we got that going for us. I already can’t wait.” —
