I don't mean to be pessimistic or anything, but doesn't it seem that we're the ones that are choking on our own success? to me it seems like we've reversed roles with the A's. Oakland had a mediocre first half and a terrible July and then have started to regain form.
We, on the other hand, had a miserable performance in the first half, a stellar July and have since then dropped off.
Quite the opposite of our previous years.
