I’m now ready to officially declare him a bust.

their easy schedule to start the second half, they could reach that by
the end of August.”

I sure hope you aren’t apologizing for that win total. Because I would be doing cartwheels if they have that many wins by the end of August.

My request: Can we get WTM to apologize for him calling for Neal Huntington to be fired? He seemed to make that assertion on a weekly basis through the first month or two of the season on other sites.

I’d guess I agree with about 1/2 your apologies and disagree with about as many. While I don’t really like people losing jobs, it’s afact of life in baseball and if Gregg Ritchie doesn’t return next season, I won’t miss him. Your 72-74 win season looked above and beyond what I realistically thought.
My personal apology would go to Pedro Alvarez. He has really stepped up. I enjoy that he can deliver RBIs w/o having to hit HRs to do so. His HRs have added excitement too. But his recent evolution into a hitter who can draw a walk and not be a strikout machine has been excellent and I hope can continue.
