A four game sweep right out of CityField sure is a tough pill to swallow…
BMF is as sick and disappointed as the next fan but I’m realistic in my view of this team so I’m not letting these individual losses get me down. The truth is We’re not winning any pennants or wildcards this season. Like it or not we are in the midst of rebuilding.
And no matter what happens I’m not placing blame on the skipper or GM this season… Well, I guess Collins could prove to be a bad match here but so far I like the passion I see from him.
The dude really wants to win and it bugs the living shit out of him when they don’t. I appreciate that in my manager but considering Collins has crashed/burned and lost clubhouses before the situation bears monitoring.
Meanwhile Collins summed up the vibe better than I can after the double header: ”depressing”
He went on to add:
“Troy Tulowitzi is a very, very good player, but he came in to this series hitting .200, so someone was getting him out.” - Well said
“I’m not gonna sugar coat this, this is not a good home stand. This is not how we wanted to come out of the gate. This is not what we wanted to show our fans. We’re better than this and we’ll fix it.”
“I care about the game, I care about the way it’s played, so we’ll go to Atlanta and I’ll be thinking about what needs to be addressed and we’ll talk about when we get down there.’
Great, just where we want to go that house of horrors, Atlanta!
