Back on Wednesday

Hi everyone. I know I was absent after yesterday’s game. I’m off working on a couple of projects for our paper these next couple of days. I will return with the blog on Wednesday at the start of the doubleheader. I know it’s almost the end of the season and I am not abandoning you. There are simply things that have to be done for the paper as the season winds down and not enough hours in the day to do everything, travel, cover games etc. Hope you understand.
You didn’t miss much yesterday. The Angels wrapped up the title, as you know. It was a depressing day inside the Seattle clubhouse. There really wasn’t too much of that “it was good to see the other guys celebrate, we want to be there next year” stuff. I got the impression the M’s were ticked. They know they had a shot this year and blew it when it counted in the head-to-head matchups.
Maybe that part bodes well. Maybe not.
One thing to keep in mind as you debate the starters who could be added to next year’s rotation, as you’ve done in the previous post: It’s usually a lot easier to write the names down than to carry out actual transactions to bring multiple pitchers over. For every three names you throw out there, you’ll be lucky to see your team bring in one. Not making excuses for anyone. Just telling you that, from my experience, this is what happens. If you expect to see two or three new arms here next year, it’s probably not going to happen. But, you never know…carry on.
