Sark’s Comment from June 30th, 2013

When Sark wrote this comment on June 30th, I was hoping it wouldn’t play out.

I’m having second thoughts.

Here’s what he said:

I agree they have become as unwatchable as ever. The 2003 team was more interesting simply because they were terrible, but we knew that going in. This team is supposed to be the best since 27 Yankees, or so we’ve been sold. There are so many holes in this team its hard to figure which to fill first. They simply can’t perform in the clutch. I would love to see a statistic that evaluates how many runners reach first base and then touch home plate. Can’t be a very good ratio on this team.

I can see them out of first place at the all-star break, though that will be the case much sooner on this road trip. Hate to say it but they’re going to need a change of manager to put a spark into this team. Things are getting too stale and the players are becoming a reflection of the manager. You know – ‘it’s a long season and the talent will win out’. Dangerous attitude to have when there are hungry teams in the chase.

Here‘s a link to the original post, “Just About Unwatchable”.

  1. I hate being right when it comes to my baseball team, but let’s face facts. The only thing I got wrong was that they would be displaced from first place. It might still happen though, but I hope not…

  2. Sark……..cheer up buddy. There are scenario’s that take us to the World Series..we win the division…..the A’s team plane crashes. Next series opposing team plane is hijacked upon landing at DTW diverted to Cuba. Could happen….
