In a "normal" year, they'd be 5 games back of the WC.
My expectations are high, but not unreasonable. The things that they are not doing are fundamental to the game. If it was pitching coughing these games up all the time I would agree, but the things they are failing at are things that should be second nature to a little league team. Routine put-outs, getting a fly ball to score a runner from third with less than two outs, moving runners over etc. etc. etc. My personal we make bad pitchers look like Cy Young at least once a week. Is Weaver really that much of amystery to our lineup?
If it was just poor pitching I could almost understand. But with strong fundamentals and just doing what baseball teams are supposed to do day in day out we should be up 3-4 games right now.
