I know some of you are ready to just give up, and hell, I can't blame you. This organization hasn't given you many good reasons to keep your hopes up during a slide like this. As for me, I'll uh...I'll wait until we're 10 back before I call down the thunder. And oh man are they building up thunder to call down.
As for now, we can still get to within two of first before the break. Speaking of the break, I'm going to do a mid-season breakdown similar to that seen at Athletics Nation on Monday, and hell, if you wanna talk about the All-Star game on Tuesday, a game thread will go up just for kicks.
