Travis ----thanks for the update ...now that you are on the board can you please answer my question.
Out of these 4 choices --- Who do you think should get most of the blame for a team that only wins 64 games in a season ?
If you answer players ...which ones specfically do you think had a very poor year ..thus...hurting the team and maybe should be traded or removed for an upgrade?
All in all, the players have direct control of who wins and loses a game. The other stuff works into the mix to add obstacles, (injuries, etc...)
Give up Harv, he's never going to give a straight answer. They'll always be making excuses for why some players are good and some are bad. I guess it's just been bad luck that we've been horrendous for 13 years. Maybe if we stop trying to sign players in free agency and just invest our money in four leaf clovers and rabbits feet we'll see an increase in our win totals.
I think last year's record can be traced to a significant number of injuries to folks who were counted on to produce. Koji, etc...
Sometimes bad luck just happens like that.
If players win or lose on the field, then our woeful O's and the yankees are really not much different (i mean other then talent- wise and as you and the owner say, bad luck).
So what would be the difference? Well, the organizations are vastly different. Yankees pay for big time FAs and grow talent as well. The O's do not. Yankees want to win every year...O's do not based on the product they put on the field and the results for the last 12 years.
If it is simply the talent on the field and not the organization, I suggest we fire the guys on the field and acquire other players.
Anybody remember THE BIG FOUR somebody said were gonna be on the '04 O's?
