We are depressed! Chone - the superutility player left us to go to Safeco, where he will be overshadowed by Ichiro and King Felix, and not to mention a divisional rival. Lackey winner of Game 7...(I'll stop here so you won't read it for the millionth time) goes to the Red Sox - a "rival" of the Angels. Well the Angels did sign Godzilla, which bodes the end of an era for Vladdy. (As a quick aside, would Vlad's hall of fame helmet have "mud" on it, covering the team's logo?)
Where would you, a fan, be if the season started today? Sorry for the old SNL joke, kinda bored, wanted to do something "different." Basically do you have hope, yes, not entirely sure, no.
