Half-full? Half-empty? What do you see?
I'll ask that briefly after last night's debacle. This has been, to say the least, an uneven start to the season. Wins of 3-2, 11-6 (tied in the ninth) and 1-0 followed by losses of 8-7 (10 innings), 5-4, 5-4, 3-0 and 10-7.
After eight games, have you changed your outlook for this club? (I haven't. I had 76 wins. Feels about right.)
Does the fact they're in these games make you feel better? How about worse? Here's Manny Acta on that subject:
"Losing every day by one run is not a good sign," Acta said. "It's a sign, sometimes, of bad clubs, because it means that you made an error - whether it's a physical or mental error - during the ballgame that helps you lose by one."
And about that crowd. Do you buy Stan Kasten's argument? Were you, as he was, "very happy" with the attendance last night? Or does it matter.
Much to stew over on an off-day. Shawn Hill tonight at Potomac. Could be back on Sunday in the majors, but he has to get through tonight.
