"If you want to call it a hole, [it's] something that can be dug out of," Showalter said. "We can, but you can't just wish it and hope it and think it's something that comes with the mathematics of a season. It's got to happen. You always have a sense of urgency, but you don't really compare yourself with other teams that much, and you don't compare yourself with what portion of the season you've played or this or that or whatever. We know the world we live in, and we welcome that."
