Monday Morning Manager…the World Series
It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone.
So now we sift through the ashes, conduct the post-mortems and figure out what went wrong. But it’s up to Jon Daniels and his cadre to try and fix it while we wait for Spring Training.
Some 31/2 months until pitchers and catchers report, but at least we should get through All Saints Day before pining for endless PFP. After all, the 49ers are 6-1 and how about that team down the street.
One thing about the World Series is everybody has an opinion and the bigger the bullhorn the better, who can climb the highest pedestal and shout the loudest is always important, far more so than actual perspective.
Good to see the Buffalo Bills have not been forgotten and what about those Minnesota Vikings, or is that too far in the past for most. Maybe they will be remembered when the Hail Marys are being recited on All Saints Day.
The Rangers lost the World Series? Why? Because they couldn’t close out Game 6. Game 7 was almost superfluous unless they could have held that 2-0 lead for a couple of innings.
So…what went wrong? Time to revive Monday Morning Manager to sort it all out.
1. What do you think is the single biggest reason why the Rangers couldn’t beat the St. Louis Cardinals?
2. What bothers you the most about the Game 6 loss?
3. Is it time to move Neftali Feliz into the rotation?
4. How aggressive should the Rangers be with C.J. Wilson?
5. What would be your No. 1 priority as GM this winter.
