    We desperately need another bat, Obi-Wan LaPorta you’re our only hope! 

  • Yup

    Why the usual suspects were chiding us for not getting behind this team, I saw what I saw last year: no offense. How many times have they scored more than 4 runs? That’s all that matters to me cuz you cannot win in the AL scoring 4 or less. And yet we’ve done that more than half the games. I see nothing on this roster to make me think ir’s going to get any better. 80 win team. Period.

  • Yup

    Should read “While.” Apologies…

    Why can’t this team win day games?
