I respect your blog and your knowledge of baseball, but please, the begininning of the season when there's still hope is the best time of the year for me; don't ruin it. I'm addicted to this site, it's one of the few sites I check daily, so seriously, join in on the fun, and let's try to stay positive in the first month before we're 13 games back at the beginning of June. For example, Doumit looks jacked, and if he was a better fielder/thrower, that could be really good. He knocked that ball out of the park off Hughes without getting great contact, clearly the guy has some strength. Mclouth is a good all around player, Freddy looks good in the field, Rivas has been hitting well, and Doumatrait has had great stuff recently. Seriously, let's stay positive, I know it's your blog, but I implore you, please give me some hope rather than a steady flow of cynical pessimism.
