I'm as frustrated as anyone with how this team has played, and at the circus its become off the field. But more so, I'm sick and tired of reading the daily post mortems while the body is still warm on the table. Whether its April's pessimists coming back to say "I told you so" (speaking of which: way to go out on a limb and predict the outcome that will happen for 29 of the 30 teams this season; what foresight and courage you showed; you want a medal or something?), or Rosenbloom calling the team a bunch of quitters in his blog ... its just gotten to be too much.
Think about it this way: if you had 2 minutes to address the team before its next game, what would you say? Would you shout and point fingers and say "its your fault ... and yours... and yours..."? Or would you say something like: CUT OUT THE NONSENSE AND JUST PLAY BALL!! Its not too late. Focus on the game, cut out the circus, and go out there and execute. Do that every game, and you can make a run. Make a run, and you can make the playoffs. Make the playoffs and we'll figure it out from there. Just go out there today and get it done".
Maybe I'm crazy, but I'd say the second in heartbeat. This is baseball -- stranger things have happened, and will happen again. Yeah, they put themselves in a bad spot, but tell that to 2001 A's, the 04 & 05 Astros, and the 07 Rockies if you think the season is over.
If you disagree, fine, I respect your right to disagree but I politely ask you to stay out of this thread. If you want to talk about how the season ended two weeks ago, you have plenty of places to do that. I believe there's still something redeemable in this team, and if you agree, I want to hear about it below. To quote the master:
"What the [cough] happened to the Delta I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh? This could be the greatest night of our lives, but you're gonna let it be the worst. "Ooh, we're afraid to go with you Bluto, we might get in trouble." Well just kiss my [cough] from now on! Not me! I'm not gonna take this.
Wormer, he's a dead man!
Care to finish the sentence?
