I have to say, this club is not this bad. No.
Nobody is this bad, really.
Okay, maybe the Atlanta Braves, but probably not even them.
I know that spring training is just spring training, but this team went 19-11 in the spring. That’s the team I thought we’d be seeing this year. Where did they go?
I suppose this is one of the weirdly attractive things about baseball. Inexplicable, relentless catastrophe.
Of course, a lot of people will be happy to explain it. In fact, they saw it coming. Could have told ya.
But to be playing this bad. That’s pretty inexplicable. This goes far far beyond injuries and strikeouts and OPS and young ball players who lack experience in major league ball. This gets all the way down to the absolute nature of reality and existence.
Reality and existence: utterly brutal.
Life is full of suffering.
