Disappointment to the 9th power

Ian HunterCorrespondent IMay 28, 2009
"Whether we are aware if it or not, every person for the most part, tends to operate within their "Comfort Zone," which could also be more accurately be referred to as their "Familiar Zone," and it's within that zone where an individual will subconsciously strive to stay, because that is where they have spent the majority of their lives, and thus it is comfortable and familiar.

At the start of the 2009 season, the euphoria of the new management's influences, spilled over from the end of the last season, and right out of the gate, the Jays were not only leading the tough AL East, but they were also unexpectedly leading the league in several offensive categories.

This was totally uncharted waters for the collective subconscious minds of the hitters specifically; they were way outside of their Comfort of Familiar Zone, so unwittingly, and unintentionally, they managed to sabotage their efforts to put runs on the board."
