Is CF Cowgill, LF Duda, RF Niewnhuis.. how ever you spell his name.
That is seriously embarrassing. How do you even go about this?
"I will go about it by watching the game the same as I have the last 3 decades. It is entertainment, and basically that is all that it is. So watch and enjoy. If you cant, then thats on you."
The problem is it gets so bad that there's a point where it really no longer is entertaining. This is a message board. We talk about this stuff.
talk about it... whine about it... cry about it.... That is basically all of these threads.
I know these arent your words, but if still following the team and enjoying them for what they are is "koolaider" talk, and the opposite is "realist", then at some point the "realists" should understand the reality of the situation, and this team can not, does not, and/or will not spend unnecessary money on players that won't help the team. Spending money to have this team chase .500 is a waste of capitol. Until they have the pieces to actually compete, it will be more enjoyable to see younger players try and make it, then add ons who are there for a pay check.
I guess you do spend much on the team anyway
Up until 2008 had a partial season ticket package. Two collapes and skyrocketing prices made me give them up. They still contact me regularly to come back. My reply. When you are over .500 in August I'll think about it.
"then dont watch."
Yes Dan, we all know we are not being forced to watch. The point is it stinks that we very well may not even want to. It's not the most ridiculous thing to complain about on a message board designed for discussion of the team.
I suspect that Nieuwenhuis will have the inside track on CF, with Cowgill in right. Duda is a big guy and at least brings a presence to the middle of the lineup. If he relaxes, maybe 25 hrs and .260.I don't know much about Cowgill, but have a feeling either he or Brown will play respectable ball.CF is the issue. If Kirk starts quickly, everyone will be off his case. If he plays like late last year, Matt den Dekker will get a shot, and will at a minimum provide excellent defense.
In any event, it should be a fun situation to watch.
