"We're back lying in the weeds again, and that's fine," manager Buck Showalter said. "We work pretty good out of the weeds. And I appreciate everyone helping us get back there, whether it be Toronto and what they did in the offseason or it's the national media. All that stuff is short-lived, all that doubting us. Sooner or later, that stuff goes away and the novelty wears off and the issue is, 'Are you good enough?' And last year, we were good enough."
