In which Geo Soto has done NOTHING to correct my low opinion of his 2009 effort
Yep, Carlos Marmol pitched like he was distracted, and Kevin Gregg fed Jeff Francoeur a succulent piece of meat, and I think enough time has passed - after 2 months, I am calling Milton Bradley an unqualified fraud!
But perhaps if Geo Soto coulda dropped his big fat ass down and blocked strike three, maybe there wouldn't be a guy on first when Francoeur launched his rocket, and perhaps we get out of there with a win.
I am so gatdamn sick of his act this year! Hendry and Piniella have hurt this team by not effectively addressing Soto's shortcomings, and in effect, the rest of the underperforming bums on this squad (Fontenot, Soriano, Zambrano to name a few) feel no pressure to improve.
I'm not calling the time of death yet - there is still time to win this division if Hendry makes some moves, and if Piniella gets off his ass and provides some leadership. But simply stated, this particular team, as comprised, will be lucky to finish third. Unless drastic measures are made, what you see is what you will get, all year.
