Where Have You Gone Earl?

Written by: Peter Coolbaugh

Remember the good old days? Weaver ball? Pitching, defense and the 3-run homer? Well, we do OK with the homers. The other fundamentals... forget about it.

Losing 2 of every 3 games will sink anyone. And with Washington suddenly winning games (stunning, I know) we are in danger of becoming the worst team in baseball.

Why sit here and gripe? Even with Pie's hitting for the cycle on Friday night and that nice win over Anaheim, we still find ways to blow it. Like the 9 run inning yesterday by the Angels in the top of the 13th. What the hell was that?

So... offseason problems that need to be fixed. 1) Get rid of Trembley and his staff. 2) Find a former manager who you can lure back like Bobby Valentine or maybe a guy who always wished to manage like Don Mattingly or Eddie Murray. 3) Get rid if Huff, Guthrie, and Mora.

Will all these things happen? Probably not. But more shakeups are needed to fix this horrendously broken franchise. A new owner would be nice too.
