Wake up, it’s 2007 again! That’s what it feels like as we continually find new ways to lose! Sure Saito is going to blow a game now and again, but last night was not the time for it. We just looked pathetic.
Martin started to break out of his funk and Jones hit a bomb for a triple. We know Martin is going to be fine – we just aren’t sure about Jones. Is it a temporary thing or is he on the downhill slide? Who knows. but as much as everyone says weight isn’t an issue, I think it is! He was heavy last year and heavier this year. Even Ray Charles could see that!
Kuroda pitched well, as did Proctor, Beimel and Broxton. Saito just blew chunks. It happens. It just didn’t need to happen last night – a game we needed if for nothing but morale. Now, we need Kuo to give us a boost! We just don’t seem to be a team and we seem to chock in the clutch – over and over again. We simply cannot execute with RISP!
