    Get some guys in here that aren’t afraid of the moment and let’s win, quit acting like we are lucky to be in close games. This franchise deserves better
    Who said we are lucky to be in close games?

    I made that post because I think they deserve a little bit of credit for constantly battling back and at least giving themselves a chance to win.

    Some of you guys lose your mind every time they fall a run behind or end up losing a game. Suggesting good young players should be dropped down in the order, benched and even sent back to Louisville. Calling the manager an idiot every time he makes a move that doesn’t work.

    Just because a move doesn’t work it doesn’t mean it wasn’t the right move or a good move.

    And just because they might fall short of victory after making a comeback doesn’t mean they are afraid of the moment.

    I was trying to give them a little credit instead of crucifying them for falling a little short in their effort to comeback and win a game.
