Double Catastrophe

THE TEAM got swept in a Doubleheader.  It feels like 2008 all over again.  THE TEAM can't seem to move forward.  There are moments that things look good and players are making plays and then everybody climbs on a missile straight to bloody hell.

Or course it's all recreational.  It's supposed to be fun and it is but it is even more fun to win.  Maybe it's time to lower expectations.  Maybe it's time to start drinking BEFORE games.  Enough of all this hissing and cursing and screaming helpful playing tips at each other.

Moving on to the good news:


Peter hit a Home Run.

G League is in our future.  There must be some pile of slobs out there that THE TEAM can hand it to.

We need more fielding practice. Run some drills. Throwing technique. Exchanges from glove to ball. I would venture to say in the majority of our losses, very few balls are going over our heads and so many are just dropping then fielded into the outfield while teams just pick away at leads. Gotta swing harder, run harder, go for extra bases. I don't care about errors like dropped balls and weird hops...that happens. But teams have been "bloop shotting" us to death. We need to learn to hit grounders...take the lead offs...and leave the barking dogs at home. :-)
