Thirty nine and thirty nine
A month ago we were about ready to throw things across the room in frustration (see Dave’s lament on a horribly-managed game which captures the moment well). Today I’m a happy fan. I don’t care if it’s irrational or if the team’s about to hit a tough stretch of schedule. They’re even! Even!
Ignoring the first week of this season for a second (they were 5-5 April 13th), the last time they were at .500 was 12-12 April 30th, 2005. They were never at or over .500 in 2004 (unless you count 0-0). The last time they were at .500 this late in the season was in 2003.
Interleague play, your generous blessing of wins is greatly appreciated.
