the most disturbing thing about all of this is ... if we're ever going to be a good team ... it won't be until forever from now.
sure our starting pitching is young and has potential ... and our line-up is two bats away from being solid (but you know we'll be trading johnson soon, so we'll have to look for another piece in addition ) ... but our pen is terrible and our situational hitting is an embarrassment.
this team has no faith when they play and the losing has just killed their spirits: THEY EXPECT TO LOSE. they are afraid to make a mistake, but when they get to the dugout, manny is there to comfort them and make their bed. they are coddled.
and they give too many guys too many chances and i just don't trust our ownership caring that much to provide the resources (MONEY), our front office to make the right moves with that budget and our manager in his decision making.
i'm usually patient with most things in life ... i had to wait 20 years for a baseball team ... but now it's like i have to wait 20 more for a winner.
