Discounting the offseason lack of moves by Jocketty... this is the date I think did us in. Sealed the deal. And bummed most of us out from that day forward:
May 24, 2011
We were 2 games above .500 going into that fateful day, we were 3.5 out of first place. And we weren't hitting or pitching very well up to that point. It had to go up from there, right? It would be a battle, but we could fight with MLW and STL and be in the race until the last week of the season. No it never worked out that way.
50-58 the rest of the way after May 24, 2011 when we were beat by a SS playing pitcher for the Phillies in a 6+ hour marathon game.
