What a miserable season. Just when we thought the season couldn't sink any lower we almost get perfecto'ed by Hideo Nomo's doppleganger.

Imagine if we had Andruw Jones on our team this year, imagine the black hole that our outfield would be in that scenario. Francoeur would not have gotten demoted because he's hitting 75 points higher that AJ.

A few more of these losses and we should be in full sell mode. I'm not sure if I want us to lose a few more so that we can make some trades for prospects or if I want us to win some more so we feel like we're still in the race. I've said it several other times, but the underachieving style of this team makes me afraid that if they seem like they're getting back into it, that it won't last long and we will have missed our opportunity at more than just two draft picks.

Perhaps the new homeboy upstairs should just roll the dice:
