Accountability

We can argue over whether the moves made this offseason were the right ones, and talk about the injuries, the matchups, whatever.

But how this team, with this payroll, after the year they had last year, can look this bad is incomprehensible. I'm at a loss, completely.

It's basically the same question I was asking myself in the NLDS - how a team that looked so good in the regular season, could look so bad in the playoffs.

We beat up on terrible pitching, but make mediocre pitchers look like Cy Young candidates.  And when we face actual Cy Young candidates, we might as well not show up.  And guess what kind of pitching you see exclusively in the playoffs?

We have no leader.  We have no fire.  We have no emotion. We have, maybe, one clutch hitting.  We have no fun. So far, we have no accountability.

At some point, blame has to start falling, and not on the players we *dont* have, but the players we do.
