I mean if the mantra is repeated often enough, by enough people does that make it true? It's all we heard prior to this.
I'm not trying [believe me I'm not trying] to go off on a rant, but I mean were we as fans sold a bill of goods here?
How much of this is not living up to the hype, and how much is possibly the situation with his ill child?
I would not underestimate the effect his family situation has on his play so far this season.
It is also very possible that Gonzo could go the rest of the season without making another error. Wasn't it in 2000 that Omar Vizquel made three errors in one game at the begining of the season, then was perfect the rest of the season?
