Look at misfortune the same way you look at success – Don't Panic! Do you best and forget the consequences.
I'd rather win two or three, lose one, win two or three more. I'm a great believer in things evening out. If you win a whole bunch in a row, somewhere along the line you're going to lose some too.
Fans tend to get too excited by streaks of either kind and I think the press does too. There should be a happy medium.
Perhaps the truest axiom in baseball is that the toughest thing to do is repeat.
