After suffering last year through all those LOBs, and now enduring this embarrassing and tormenting five weeks, I need to be put out of my misery. Billy, please toss Byrnes, Durazo, Hatteberg and Chavez overboard. It's at the point where I'm rooting against Chavez in the hope that he'll retire. He looks miserable enough, and if he retires, he forfeits his contract, right? Otherwise this guy is a franchise-killer.
Time to rebuild. Stock the farm system with sluggers. Hope they develop before Blanton, Harden and Haren move on to the big money teams. But I'm tired of watching these hacks up there.
Thank God for Tivo and the double-bloop option. That saved me these past two games against the Yank-me's.
It wouldn't be so bad if we didn't keep getting runners on base. If we were just totally talentless, there would be no room for disappointment.
Let the dismantling come. Let's have a team that is fresh, with no "A's Disease" (see playoffs, 2000-2003, regular season 2004, April/May 2005).
