What can one say? Maybe Ceetar is right and we will win the WS.
This team, without Johan, Ike, and Wright, is now 35-26 since the infamous loss to Houston when Fred entertained Jeffrey Toobin. That works out to 93 wins over 162 games.
The offense is rolling like the Dan Marino Dolphins, despite the increasingly inane Nabob complaints about Collins’ lineup choices. Guess what–it DOES sometimes make sense to hit Harris 2nd. And Pagan, when hitting, is needed down lower to drive in runs.
It’s hard to say if this will continue, but Terry has righted the ship that a year ago had become Chez Jerry: draw up a chair, and we’ll deal you in – no, don’t worry about infield or BP! We’re veterans!
Collins has the most makeshift of makeshift groups playing like they are for real.
As a longtime fan who has wavered over recent years, I for one am enjoying the ride.
The “death march” schedule seems to be producing series win after series win. Let’s get at least one more in the Motor City and then come home to what will be a raucous Citi Field and demolish the Yankee$ this weekend.
The team has finally pulled above .500, and let’s hope they leave the mark of mediocrity in the rearview.
This writer joins our vacationing eminent Rusty in vacationland, albeit a couple of thousand miles to the west, in a place with much sand but where the beaches are replaced with large pools and much green felt.
As Rusty would say I am sure, may I have the good fortune to not get caught behind Mo Vaughn in a buffet line!
And as our absent friend CaseStreet would say, if you have something to say, say it here!
Enjoy the week TRDMB denizens, have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend, and LGM!
