This is turning out to be a donut season with a big hole in the middle. We endured 100's of ABs to guys lke Gomes, Lewis, Janish, and even Cairo. Several promising looking rookies languished in AAA from June into August.
The front office needs to gain a new sense of urgency about performance and winning. Going for weeks and months saying "everything will be OK, just wait" just doesn't hack it. Of course, guys have ups and downs, but at the MLB level, it is results that count. I think Jocketty and crew let this team and the fans down by being entirely too patient.
