With Stanton out of the lineup now, we have no offense, we're awful w/ RISP, we never make any comebacks, and when we somehow have leads, we blow them, and Ozzie is doing everyone else a favor by benching our hottest bat in Ruggiano because of damn matchups. I really liked Ozzie but lately I'm souring on him fast. At least as a manager.
The team is unwatchable.
Are we really worse without H2R out of the lineup? He's been nothing special, although at least he's hit some bombs.
We're nothing without Stanton. We just need to move some players and hope next year is more our year than this year was.
Reyes and Bell will be more comfortable. H2R will be in a contract year, will anyone be surprised to see him start hitting around .300 again? So we'll see.
Baseball is a tough sport to stomach sometimes, stuff like this happens. Unless you're a 200M team with tons of talent you can't expect to always be in the race. Down years happen. Unfortunately.
