So your team started the season 3-7. Does that mean it's time crack each other's heads open and feast on the goo inside? According to John Dewan, yes. Yes, it is.

Since 2002, 44 teams have started the season with 3 or fewer wins in their first ten games. Only 4 of them (9%) have gone on to win 90 games for the year.

As Dewan points out, the Tigers, Rays and Red Sox all started slow last year, and they turned out fried chicken and beer just fine. So while you shouldn't read too much into early season standings, even ten games can tell you a teeny-tiny something. I guess.
