Phillies, Nats, Braves.
Even a "close 4th place" must be looked at differently if they remain competetive the whole year.
This division is so top heavy it's scary.
Of course if they fold after the ASG again, then it's just another lather, rinse, repeat...
"They have a history of decent first halves and not showing in in the second half."
This is an understatement. It's a yearly routine. Of course the front office always leaves them high and dry at the break, unlike other winning teams who add needed parts.
so then should we not watch any games then until August? If not, will you also not watch them? If we are not banned from watching, should we not root for them to win? If they win, should we not enjoy it?
We cant control how they play, so we enjoy when they do well. If they play like they did last year in the first half, I hope this board is as excited as it was last year, even if the result ends up being the same. I know I will be enjoying and hoping for a better outcome, because even if it is likely to be the same, every year is different.
>>>If they're doing well in the first half I really don't want to hear it from anyone here.<<<
Simple solution: don't read this message board then.
"People can be positive about something like Harvey or TDA...but to say that our pen is fixed and our rotation is as good as the Braves is an outlandish opinion and needs to be refuted in the harshest and most abrasive way possible."
This is why you <suck.
