You can’t have Glaus and Chipper not hit in the middle of the order. It is not going to win games. How long until he figures it out? Geez. I’ll cut Gonzo some slack because he’s coming of illness, but yes, he is contributing absolutely nothing offensively. Like a .255 AVG. with 1 RBI since the trade.
I watched a little of a Yankees game the other day, and I came to two conclusions, neither of them being very original: 1. They are incredible to watch, that line-up stepping up there, megahitter after megahitter, and 2. I can’t hate them for being in the biggest city in the world, filling their stadium, and spending the money accordingly to create an unbelievable juggernaut.
I hate the situation, but I can’t hate the team. If somehow the Braves started filling up the stands every night, and we still had WTBS, and flooded the organization with money, and Blank bought the team, wouldn’t you want him to do the same thing?
I want to beat them. Nothing would be more satisfying. But they ARE amazing. They could win 115 games or more. They could sweep all the way to a WS championship. And as luck-driven as baseball is, that would be pretty awe-inspiring.
The way they’re going, they’re probably going to end up building the most dominant team in baseball history. Yeah, it’s bought with Monopoly Money, but it’s still an unreal assembly of talent.
That is all. I still hate them. But in a way, I don’t.
(Yes, I’m aware Leah will never speak to me after this post. But the truth must live.)
