You really should learn to quote when replying....

You can have whatever opinion you wish but there is only one that
matters. It's just as easy to make the case, for example, that your
"youthful core" amounts to a "question mark" at first base,
Any youth movement will have question marks. That's why good teams
move towards youth a few players at a time. There are no sure things
riddled shortstop, and a third baseman who has seen his best days
will only decline in value from now on.
A 3rd baseman that is is just now going into his prime years.
There is no way to know for
sure which course is best, but one thing is clear, and that is that
there is no excuse for not playing fundamentally sound baseball.
instance, if there is a runner on third base and one out, you don't
take your home run swing when you get two strikes on you.
He has had some problems this year, and sure the coaching has been non
existent and maybe he is trying to do too much (not like they score in
bunches)....but as mentioned he has yet to hit his prime years, and it
would be more disappointing if he wasn't trying..
can somehow communicate that to Wright and the other position
on this team, because Jerry sure hasn't been able to do it. As to
fair weather fandom, I don't think a team that is not fundamentally
sound and is clearly underperforming deserves "support." How else
one convince the ownership that changes need to be made? Keep
your tickets and see what they do !
One can support a team without spending money. I've been a Met fan
through thick and thin living and dying with them (since '62, a lot
more thin than thick), yet I've probably only been to 4 dozen games
over those years, and I own no team logo paraphernalia aside from a
Tom Seaver autographed ball. That's what happened in many long time
heart broken Brooklyn Dodger families.........
