The government who can barely keep the most resourceful continent in history afloat awards the manager who drove a 3-HOF’er – rotation to one championship in 14 tries. I’d say there’s loads of meaning.
This is impossible! Has this ever even happened in baseball history? I mean, only one of these guys is over 35 years old! Only 2 of them are over 30! FIVE baseball players in the MIDDLE OF THEIR PRIME dropping off a cliff at the same time.
That’s an average of SIXTY points PER PLAYER under average, even with Prado included in the math.
I’ve just never heard of anything like this. Freaking sucks.
I thought I’d never seen anything like it before when it happened to Andruw.
Then when it happened to Frenchy, I was like, wow, we get TWO of these this close to each other?
Then when it happened to Kelly…
But THE WHOLE FREAKING TEAM MINUS TWO PLAYERS???????? I know it’s only a month – and the above players struggled for 1 to several years, but DANG, the WHOLE FLIPPIN’ TEAM???
Let’s see if we can come up with a common denominator there……hmmmm. It’s like the transitive property.
Bobby Cox + Terry Pendleton = Gapping holes(squared)
In all fairness to this team – this is nothing like the 80s. This team has talent that isn’t being reached. Those teams were awful. Their rookies never panned out, their free agent signings were busts, their best players got hurt, Bobby Cox was their manager.
