I attended a leadership training deal in February this year and one lesson is brought up to mind when thinking of the 08 cards. If and just. We were told not to think in theses terms so to speak. It’s almost like you are waiting for something to happen instead of making it happen.
We hear a lot of things like..If they just had that bat, or if they had a starting pitcher or if they’d just get a solid relief guy. It seems there are too many if’s and justs to fix this team with one trade or in one year.
I have been happy with the team, as none of us expected them to do this well, and you don’t want to dismantle the farm for rentals. However is it more tragic for them to play so well, management to do nothing and see them play the way they are playing right now for the rest of the year? It’s almost like you need an in-between move that says this guy may help us this year but will definitely help in 09 and doesn’t burn the farm. Who would that be? Not sure if any of the current names fill that. I don’t like the script I feel that is being written and am not too excited about the next few months, but only time will tell.
One thing is for certain I’m glad I’m not MO.
