One of the things I have never done this season is give up. I have had my share of frustrations and heartbreaks with this team, but I am proud to say that I have believed all year that this team capable of good things. All year, Dusty has been saying that this team has not hit it’s stride, and that we need to be patient. So, I was patient. Now, I am seeing this team play some pretty good baseball. Granted, most of these wins are against teams we should be beating, but a win is a win, no matter who you beat. We went on a run like this last year and ran down to the wire with the Astros. I have this feeling that this year we are going to go on a similar run to the playoffs, but this time it will include running away with the wild card.
This team is clicking on all cylinders for once. We are scoring runs early with Corey at the top of the lineup. Steve Stone had this to say during the game last night after Corey ran the bases like a stud and slid into 2nd base ahead of a throw.

I am excited to see what is going to happen down the stretch. Everything just seems to be going right. I mean, my god, Matt Clement even got a win last night. If that’s not a strange sign from above, I don’t know what is.
