Last year at this time we were 18-6 with a 4.5 game lead. Now we’re 12-12 and 6 games out. We lead the majors in errors 28, and the staffs’ 3.96 era is below average, when compared to the rest of MLB. At this rate we’ll be sellers by June 1st.
Also, Carlos Martinez may soon be under investigation;like Sonny and Cher once sang………and the beat goes on and the beat goes on. Would love to get Christian Sanchez from the Red Sox. Looks and moves like Yadi when he was a rookie. Great with pitchers and defense;weak hitter,but catchers usually develope late at the plate.
