The 3 teams we have played have worked the counts amazingly well. The Reds? Not even a little bit except the first game of the year. Truly disgusting display and the coaches and team should be ashamed.
But it's early so who knows.
Quote from Dusty:
“It’s not lack of offense,” he said. “It’s lack of sleep. When you have a lack of offense is kind of like everybody lacks of offense. If somebody was hot and swinging real good you wouldn’t have the lack of offense.”
I'm not making this up.
Yup that's what they'll keep telling themselves until we're quickly 10 games under .500, the year is shot, and then they'll start deciding to make moves. What's it going to take? Willie Harris to start hitting below .020 to send this bum off to the Mexican Leagues where he belongs?
