Now It's As Bad As It Gets

The chances of making the playoffs in 2008 are dwindling daily. It's not only me - check here, here or here for 3 equally dismal opinions from the top bloggers in the M's blogosphere. It may indeed be a long summer.

You know the sad part, if one person would get hot, I believe the others would feed off him, sadly, thats not happening. Even with the influx of new faces. Stranding runners is killing this team. When they're not stranding runners, the bullpen blows it. What a conundrum. The amazing thing is, when I was younger, I lived, ate and breathed sports. Now I just find other things to do. A sad disclaimer I think.

The lack of hitting on this team seems to be permeating the pitching. When things go bad, they go real bad. I think McLarens gone soon if they don't get a win this homestand. Too bad cause I don't think he's a bad coach, but as they say, you can't fire the players. Now I see that the White Sox are up 6 runs in the 2nd. Maybe they read all the press clippings at the beginning of the season! Well, there's always next year.

Looking at things from a different perspective, Balentien is looking like a valid replacement in right, from what I've seen, Clement will need a full season against Major League pitching to acclimate himself, but he will come around. I still think Cairo should be DFA'd, and Sexson should be gone by the end of the year. A decent left fielder, and the release of Vidro should round out the team. The bench is still weak, but could remedied with a decent hitting/defensive outfielder who wouldn't cost too much. I still think they should have kept Norton. Guess we'll see what the rest of the year holds.
