Extremism in both cases.
That is, jumping out of buildings after two games, or high-stepping ten days later.
Cliche time: it's a marathon, not a sprint.
Just me, but I don't bother with the standings, any individual stats, or making judgments on players/teams until there is a fair sampling available. Like, say, a couple of months into the season.
Unhealthy and unwise to buy into the NOW!-NOW!-NOW! hysteria of the media when it comes to NY teams. For example, five minutes after the Series ended last night, predictions of "major changes" for the Yankees were already upon us. Whatever will sell fishwraps.
Meanwhile, the team that won the World Series last night was
struggling bigtime a full month and a half into this season
, to the point where they changed managers in May!
People don't like to hear it, but it's earlier than early. But, then again, chatboards are not the place for patience, but rather micro-analysis. :p
Just my opinion.
