Uncomfortable season, no doubt.
But but .... They should at least be able to hit a baseball. ENOUGH SAID !!!
But what were so many of you calling for last season, over and over again ... LET THE KIDS PLAY.
And we are doing that.
And we are planning to do more. We let Salty go because we have several catching prospects that make us think we have a bright future behind the dish.
The FO said we would do that ... We should be dancing in the streets. Heck, we are the WS champs - allow me to add the full weight of of that WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS. Not almost. Not come up short again. Not even three seasons past or seven or ten. We ARE the World Series Champions.
So back to dancing ... with the kids.
We're punchless. Papi is slow to warm up. Bid deal. He will hit his stride. Nap has been out for a bit, Pedey hurt his hand. Clay is struggling. Most of the pitching is good.
The key players of that platooned so well are having tough times so far.
Workman was excellent. Rubby was too, first time out. But human the other two.
Nothing really a plus here, but don't we owe the champs time to work through issues? We recognized that everything fell into place last year. Our posting doubters all last season had so many opportunites last season and yet lo and behold, we won! Our posting doubters are having a great time now wallowing in misery.
And we are - 86 years since our last WS crown. So I understand. Oh, wait. It's been three seasons - or four -since we .... uh,
I thought we loved wild eyed spark maker Gomes, MR OnBase Nava, Surprise Supersub Carp ...
I could go on.
I have my doubts as to playoffs this year. But we can't always have our luck fall into place.
We all knew Ells was leaving.
I had a few minutes between work and class.
4 4 11 .... figure it out.
Hint, 3 4 10.
