On encouraging note, the words McCann used to describe his slump sound to me like it isn’t his eyes.
“Things aren’t where I need them to be, just not putting together good at-bats. I’ve just got to ride it out. I haven’t really been here before in this position where I’m at right now. I’ll find a way to get back.”
McCann’s too honest for me to think he’d say he hasn’t really been here before if it was his eye(s), which of course is right where he’s been twice before. Just doesn’t sound like the language he’d use to describe it, even if he didn’t want to talk about his eyes again.
I did some research to see if a team that was no-hit had ever gone on to win the WS, and surprisingly there were 8 teams that had accomplished just that. I am willing to bet that none of those teams was no-hit twice. Is this just not the most damning indictment of how bad this team is offensively? Seriously? And Huddy throwing another gem for nothing.
