Re: Far too early to be throwing in the towel
Didn't the 1975 team start out pretty slow till mid/late May when they moved Rose to 3B? I'm not comparing this team to the BRM at all, but the point it, if people would have freaked out then, as they are doing now, 1975 and 1976 would have never happened.
Also, we are one year removed from the reign of DanO and all the luncy that it entailed. BC and KRIV took over the team with no offseason to make any moves and scarcely any time before spring training. That didn't give them hardly any time for player moves to start to undue the myrid of problems facing the team. They made a flury of moves, but still, to undue DanO's mess takes a while.
Most of us said we'd be a .500 team +/- a few games, maybe in the hunt for 3rd or something. So to think we are heading to the WS after a strong start is pretty silly and then to be freaking out because we might not make the WS (after a slump) is even sillier.
a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.
I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
