Not making any excuses for the team but they do have a lot of talent on the DL right now. Avila is just the latest in a string of guys getting hurt. It seems that the team does poorly when expectations are high (see 2006 World Series).
I am hopeful they can turn their season around, but I am really not that optimistic, poor defense, streaky hitting and pitching is not the recipe for success. What are your thoughts on their season thus far?
