Coping mechanisms

BTW, I'm not the only one stressing about the losing streak. Ed Cossette at the excellent -- except for the name -- Bambino's Curse redsox blog, writes,

I'm officially initiating my level 2 coping mechanism which means I'm going to shut out the rest of the baseball world. I'll only visit Red Sox blogs and sites until this horrific losing streak ends. Don't want to hear about Pujols or anyone else. Screw it. I'm hunkered down like a snapping turtle.

Now here's another coping mechanism that I've been toying with: Every great season must have a difficult patch, and this losing streak is ours. And I'm kinda glad that it's coming now, and not in September when the suicide rate would be much higher.
