I do not know if i want to support a team that has mismanageed itself in such a terrible way for nearly
getting average players, terrible drafts, horrible Free agency signings, trading away any decent players for has beens or never will-be's....
The fans are seriously running out of patience!!!
This area of fans have proven that if you put a winning product on the field, diamond, or ice, they will support you!!!!!!!
so do that!!!!
Ill support them whether they win or not. They players on the field deserve our support...they aren't the ones making crappy front office moves.

Until they get owners who care more about winning than the profit margin they will continue to serve as a MLB punchline in baseball jokes. I grew up watching Parker, Stargell, Clemente and the likes. I believe some empty promises were made when the team was begging fans to build them a new stadium. Still waiting to break out of the bottom 3 lowest payroll in baseball category. :2cents:
