To put it simply, it is tough watching this team right now. The pitching, including Zack, has not been good enough for us to win close games. The veteran group of hitters are just sad. What aspect of the current team keeps your interest going.
Try to keep the sarcasm to a minimum as it seems like it is going to be a rough season and we all need some thing to root for.
Here are my current two glimmers of hope:
- How Mitch and Blake play. I am hoping both will be good enough to get continued playing time. Blake seems to have at least found a role, but Mitch will soon be on the bench once Ankiel deems himself ready to be the savior of the team. Is it sad the only players that I have any interest in on the major league team are the 4th outfielder and the 8th inning setup man?
- How the minor league teams are doing. I am getting to the point to reading Dubya's report every night before even seeing how the M.L. team is doing. Maybe I will start putting up game threads for the NWA team. I care more about players on that team than the ones on the M.L. team.
What part of the team keeps your interest and what could the team do more to raise your interest?
